The Final Girl Theory and How It’s Utilized in Canadian Horror

  • DailyDead
The “final girl theory” is meant to describe the trope in horror films of one female character being the last to survive, having to defeat the killer, and live to tell the tale. While Carol J. Clover originally coined the term in her 1987 essay Her Body, Himself: Gender in the Slasher Film and applied it mainly to American slasher films of the ’70s and ’80s, it’s still used in contemporary cinema in a variety of horror films to describe the surviving female character. As slasher films have seen a decline in popularity since their “golden age,” the use of the term “final girl” has expanded to include different sub-genres of horror films, as well as how the final girls themselves behave throughout the films.

The original meaning of the final girl, as described by Clover in 1987, defined the girl as the sole survivor of the group who has a final confrontation with the villain.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Is Now Streaming On Netflix

Netflix is padding their queue with plenty of gory treats for horror lovers this October. The streaming giant recently made the original Candyman available to watch and are now dipping back into the horror genre to give fans another surprise: the infamous 1974 slasher known as The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. That’s right, folks, now you can watch Leatherface and his cannibalistic family terrorize a group of innocent teens without having to sit through any commercials.

This latest addition comes just a month after Texas Chainsaw 3D left the platform. Though fans were upset when the movie departed Netflix, they’ll definitely be much happier upon hearing this news. Even apologists for the critically panned 2013 sequel will find it hard to argue that it’s anything near as terrifying as the original. Now, those who loved the first installment of the iconic slasher franchise can enjoy it in its bloody entirety leading up to Halloween.

‘Don’t Breathe’ Director Fede Álvarez Producing Next ‘Texas Chainsaw’ Film
Leatherface is coming back to cinemas again. Again.

Adding to eight already-existing films in “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” franchise will be a new film from Legendary Entertainment and producer Fede Álvarez. The Uruguayan director last brought the sleeper hit chamber thriller “Don’t Breathe” to the big screen in 2016. In 2013, Álvarez rebooted “Evil Dead,” based on Sam Raimi’s franchise.

According to Bloody Disgusting, Álvarez will produce the latest version of the Tobe Hooper horror movie universe, with no director or writer attached yet. It seems that Legendary is also looking to take a page from David Gordon Green’s 2018 “Halloween” restart, and Tim Miller’s upcoming “Terminator: Dark Fate.” While the former film was a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s original, Miller’s “Terminator” take is a direct sequel to James Cameron’s “Judgment Day.”

New Texas Chainsaw Massacre Movie Coming from Evil Dead Remake Director

  • MovieWeb
Things just got a whole lot more interesting on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre front. The franchise has been quiet for the past couple of years, but things have apparently been heating up behind the scenes, as Legendary Pictures is said to have closed a deal to produce new entries in the long-running horror series. What's more, Fede Alvarez has been tapped by the studio to produce a new movie in the franchise, which is currently being developed.

Before digging in, this goes back to reports from last year that stated Legendary was looking to get the rights to the franchise, which reverted back to writer/producer of the original 1974 Tobe Hooper classic Kim Henkel following the release of the failed prequel Leatherface. Now, according to a new report, Legendary has indeed quietly closed the deal and they are actively looking to get the horror icon back to his murderous ways on the big screen,

Evil Dead Director To Produce New Texas Chainsaw Massacre Movie

Just when you thought you’d seen the last of ol’ Leatherface, Legendary Entertainment surprises us all.

That’s right, Bloody Disgusting is reporting that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre series is about to bring us another sequel and this time, it’ll be headed up by Evil Dead director Fede Álvarez, who’s set to produce the project. Unfortunately, he won’t be getting behind the camera himself, but the hunt for someone to helm the pic is now underway and with Álvarez’s involvement, we’re sure they’ll be able to secure a pretty exciting talent.

From what we understand, the plan here is to follow in the footsteps of other recent horror sequels and make this one a direct continuation of the 1974 original, with Legendary taking a cue from Blumhouse’s Halloween. How exactly they’ll continue the story remains unclear, but this is definitely the right

Horror master Fede Alvarez producing a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Another year, another take on the long-running Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. This time, director of 2013’s Evil Dead Fede Alvarez is tackling the world of Leatherface and family.

As initially reported by horror website BloodyDisgusting.com, Alvarez is teaming up with original producer Kim Henkel and Legendary Pictures to produce a follow-up to the original film. Much like what Blumhouse did with the latest Halloween, this new film will continue to ignore other sequels and follow up on the story from the classic slasher.

With the original final girl actress Marilyn Burns, who played Sally Hardesty, passing away in 2014, little is known on how they will keep the story going although it will presumably continue to focus on the Sawyer Family and their cannibal antics.

Alvarez is not directing the latest chainsaw outing; instead, he is actively looking for a director to tackle this series.

Bruce Campbell Shoots Down Mortal Kombat 11 Rumors With Toasty Meme

There is literally nothing that Bruce Campbell can’t do: he’s faced down legions of faceless demons, he once outmaneuvered a maniac cop, and heck, he was even slated to be Sam Raimi’s Mysterio and stop Spider-Man, long before Donnie Darko picked up the fishbowl mantle. The latest rumor was that his star-making character Ash, of the dearly departed Ash vs. Evil Dead TV series and prequel films, would have been a Dlc character in the recently released Mortal Kombat 11. A much better choice than the other rumored appearance…

However, as a straightforward dream crusher, Campbell tweeted in direct response to these swirling rumors. I’m assuming he mastered Photoshop overnight to tell his fans, in the most fun way possible, that what they so desperately desired would most certainly not be happening:

Consider this my finishing move against a certain internet rumor. pic.twitter.com/6vKPZvTfQu

Mortal Kombat 11 Dev Teasing Shaggy Dlc On Twitter

Remember back to the hazy days of two months ago? The internet was all abuzz with a lighthearted campaign that Shaggy from Scooby-Doo should be added to the Dlc roster for Mortal Kombat 11. Well, now that the game’s out (and kicks an unbelievable amount of ass), there’s no been no sign or hint that Shaggy might actually be coming. But that doesn’t mean he’s not on the way.

Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon posted a somewhat ironic tweet today asking if fans would still like to see him in the game, teasing the following:

Rt @Boogie2988 Shaggy for mortal kombat? @noobde ?

Me: Oh wow, that's an idea. Maybe we should consider and discuss this? Do people want this? Hmmmm?pic.twitter.com/FcYdrgZotr

So, do people want this? Well, judging by the replies, it seems this joke has run its course. Aside

Mortal Kombat 11 Leak Teases That Evil Dead’s Ash Is Coming As Dlc

With Mortal Kombat 11 set to release in just a few short days, the leaks, rumors, and speculation have begun to ramp up. While developer NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have already shown off the game through reveal events and previews, as launch day gets closer, one thing remains unclear: what characters will be arriving as Dlc?

Thankfully, some rather clever data miners have shed a bit of light on that matter. As reported by GameRant, a recent leak of the game’s Nintendo Switch version has revealed a handful of fighters that will be coming as Dlc, and there’s one name that will be very familiar to horror fans.

The Mortal Kombat 11 data mine leak lists “Ash” as an upcoming downloadable fighter. While this information has yet to be officially confirmed by NetherRealm or Warner Bros., it seems that “Ash” refers to Ash J. Williams, the hero

Evil Dead Star Bruce Campbell Returns as Ash in Dead by Daylight Video Game

The popular video game Dead by Daylight is adding Ash Vs. Evil Dead hero Ash Williams as a playable character, and Bruce Campbell will be lending his voice to reprise the role. Previously, Campbell had formally announced he was forever retiring from playing the Ash character, following Starz axing Ash vs Evil Dead after three seasons. As it turns out, the veteran actor isn't through with his breakout role just yet, as his retirement is only applying to live-action Evil Dead projects. Unwilling to let someone else take over the role, Campbell confirms his involvement in the game with a new trailer promoting the Ash vs Evil Dead downloadable content, which will officially release on April 2.

For those unaware, Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer horror video game played online, pitting one killer against a group of survivors. The goal for the person playing as the killer is obviously to murder everyone,

Mortal Kombat 11 Dev Says Shaggy Won’t Be A Playable Character

After a shaky few years in the early days of 3D graphics, the Mortal Kombat franchise has carved out its own space in the fighting game market with a number of glossy, gory and most of all, highly enjoyable titles. Coming next is, of course, Mortal Kombat 11, which looks like it’s going to be the best outing in the series to date as it aims to offer us all the bone-crunchin,’ blood-spurtin,’ face-tearin’ action we all secretly crave.

But there’s something else we’ve been craving, too, and that’s the addition of one character in particular. Over the last few years, we’ve seen a whole host of great guest stars, with Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, a Predator and the Alien all arriving to square off against the Kombat cast. And each of them has put up more than enough of a match for the franchise

Petition To Add Shaggy To Mortal Kombat 11 Hits 300,000 Signatures

I never knew I wanted to see Shaggy from Scooby-Doo brutally dismembering Sub-Zero, but an enormously successful fan petition to include the character in the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 makes me hopeful it’ll happen one day soon. Started by Woken News Network, who asked the developers to “give the fans the fighter they most wanted,” the petition has since gone viral and resulted in some seriously cool fan art and responses from Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon.

Right now, it’s currently sitting at 316,766 signatures, and that’s rising by the second as fans stand up and ask, nay demand, that we see the gangly stoner enter the Netherrealm and show Shao Khan who’s boss. This actually happening might not be as unlikely as it initially sounds, either.

The Mortal Kombat series now has a tradition of including licensed characters, with Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, the Predator and

Is RoboCop Going To Make A Guest Appearance In Mortal Kombat 11?

After a slightly wobbly couple of years in the early days of 3D graphics, the Mortal Kombat series has carved out its own space in the fighting game market with a handful of glossy, gory and most of all, fun games. Coming soon is Mortal Kombat 11, which looks like it’s going to be the best installment to date and offer up the bone-crunchin,’ blood-spurtin,’ face-tearin’ action we all secretly crave.

Mortal Kombat 11 announced at The Game Awards 2018

NetherRealm Studios is returning with Mortal Kombat 11. Announced by series co-creator Ed Boone at the 2018 Video Games Awards, this entry in the long-running franchise premiered with a gory new trailer. This first look at the upcoming game features Raiden fighting two different versions of Scorpion. Check out the trailer here…

It looks like the game might take a page from NetherRealm Studios’ companion DC and dive into a multi-verse story. With 11 entries and a few reboots along the way, this is a perfect move to keep the franchise fresh. MK11 is following the massively successful Mortal Kombat X, a fantastic reinvention of the fighting series that saw the likes of Leatherface, Alien, and Jason Voorhees as playable characters.

Mortal Kombat 11 is released on April 23rd, 2019. There is a reveal event on January 17, 2019, as well. If you pre-order the game on December 7th, you get beta access and playable character Shao Kahn.
