Horror's Final Girls: What happened to the stars of Halloween, Scream?

Horror's Final Girls: What happened to the stars of Halloween, Scream?
After a bombardment of terrible sequels and remakes, the horror movie genre is undergoing something of a renaissance of late with the excellent Babadook and this week's It Follows leading the charge.

Both films are driven by strong performances from up-and-coming female stars (Essie Davis and Maika Monroe), which brings to mind a classic horror movie trope: the Final Girl. Most prevalent in slasher films, the Final Girl is the last character standing who confronts a killer/ghost/demon and lives to tell the tale.

Digital Spy looks back at 7 of our favourite horror movie Final Girls, why they're iconic and what they're up to now...

1. Neve Campbell - Sidney Prescott in Scream

Many horror fans thought Drew Barrymore would end up being Scream's Final Girl when they first watched Wes Craven's 1996 horror, but the director offed her in the opening moments leaving Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott to face down Ghostface.

Elementary season 3 casting news

Ophelia Lovibond will play Kitty Winter, Sherlock's new protege in Elementary season three...

News

With Watson out of the Brownstone, and Holmes having agreed to become an MI6 company man, the Elementary season two finale left the crime-solving twosome in disarray (or at least, in enough seeming disarray to make for a dramatic season three reunion).

Part of that upset is likely to come from one Kitty Winter, described as "Sherlock's latest protege" and played by English actress Ophelia Lovibond (Mr Sloane, Titanic: Blood And SteelNathan Barley).

A character named Kitty Winter, as Conan Doyle readers will know, featured in later Holmes story The Adventure Of The Illustrious Client as a young woman seeking revenge on a former lover and womanising scoundrel and murderer with a noble daughter in his current grasp. Will that be the case that throws Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock and Ms Winter together?

Ophelia Lovibond A Part Of “Guardians Of The Galaxy”

Ophelia Lovibond A Part Of “Guardians Of The Galaxy”
Guardians Of The Galaxy has added another member to its cast, though it’s not filling the two open characters on the actual roster. Meet Ophelia Lovibond, a surefire winner of the Name Of The Week, a British actress with a resume that includes Mr. Popper’S Penguins, No Strings Attached, Nowhere Boy and Titanic: Blood And Steel. She has landed a supporting role in the cosmic epic from Marvel Studios.

Details of her character are mostly shrouded in secrecy, but we know that her character will be dealing with The Collector, one of the Elders of the Universe in the Marvel Universe. The Collector is an immortal being that collects (hey!) living beings and artifacts for safekeeping against something determined to destroy the Universe (enter Thanos). It’s obscure, heady, over the top cosmic stuff, and it signals that Marvel isn’t boiling down Guardians Of The Galaxy for the masses.

What The Collector’s Appearance in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Could Lead To

  • Screen Rant
With the three live-action core characters of Guardians of the Galaxy reportedly locked down, and hints that the voice actors may have already been chosen to fill out the rest of the roster, Marvel Studios and director James Gunn are beginning to build the supporting cast.

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista will be joined by Michael Rooker as the first four names attached to Marvel’s “Cosmic Avengers” feature and now they’re joined by another important female character.

Neve Campbell As Derek’s Sis On Grey’s Anatomy Tease

  • Boomtron
Party of Five and Scream star Neve Campbell has been paged to Seattle Grace Hospital. Get ready to see the actress in a whole new light when you preview her first ever appearance on Grey’s Anatomy. And it’s okay to page her, because she’s wearing scrubs.

In the video preview we see just how lovely Neve looks, even when her face is obscured by a surgeon’s mask. Neve will play Liz, one of Derek’s sisters for two drama packed episodes. You can see her for yourself on today’s video, and then on the Thursday episode of Grey’s on ABC. In this episode things start looking up for McDreamy and his damaged hand…I think.

To say “Lizzy’s” arrival is tense is an understatement. There are relationship issues at play and yet we hear she could be the one and only solution to Derek’s injury.

Neve Campbell: Survivor

Neve Campbell has had a wonderfully successful career, playing parts such as Julia (Party Of Five), Bonnie (The Craft), Suzie (Wild Things), and of course Sidney from the Scream film series. One thing that the character of Sidney and her newest character of Joanna Yaeger (Titanic: Blood And Steel) have in common is that they are both survivors. In honor of Titanic: Blood And Steel being released on Blu-Ray (available now) we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of Neve’s most memorable moments. But first, check out the trailer for Titanic: Blood And Steel.

Titanic: Blood And Steel is the untold story of the building of a legend, and the many lives it affected during its three-year construction. To its wealthy investors, it was a dream. To the middle class who oversaw the project, it was a challenge. But to the working class who built it,

Grey's Anatomy Exclusive: Neve Campbell Joins Season 9 Cast as Derek's Sister!
Another Shepherd sister is coming out of the woodwork on Grey’s Anatomy.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Party of Five vet Neve Campbell is set to appear in multiple episodes of ABC’s long-running medical drama as one of Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) four sisters.

It’s not clear which sibling Campbell will play, but we can safely rule out Amelia (currently played by Caterina Scorsone on Private Practice) and Nancy (previously played by Embeth Davitz). That leaves Kathleen the psychiatrist or unnamed Sister No. 4.

Review: Merlin S5E1: Arthur's Bane

Arthur's Bane

Merlin kicked off its fifth season on Saturday, and whilst only a year has passed since it last graced our screens, in Camelot it's been three years. King Arthur and Queen Gwen are settling into their roles; and loyalty, respect and honour are the order of the day for Arthur’s knights, now orderly arranged around the infamous round table.

But wait! There are some empty chairs! Who's missing?

Sir Gwaine, Sir Percival and other uncredited extras in capes have stumbled into trouble on a worthy quest. Trouble's name? - Morgana of course. Katie McGrath's clenched jaw and piercing eyes are back, this time assisted by Liam Cunningham, as sorcerer Ruadan. I have always been a fan of Liam Cunningham, and he's certainly racking up the appearances this year, with Game Of Thrones and Titanic: Blood and Steel (yet to grace UK screens) under his belt. His

TV on Tap: Trevor Donovan Returns to "90210" and One More Angle on the Titanic

I see Teddy in the back! That means 90210 giving him some screentime, right? Right?

News

Despite all the gay characters on television, is the legacy of Will & Grace that gay men are limited to the role of Wills or Jack, in both TV portrayals and how we expect each other to behave? The "Will" and "Jack" stereotype is an issue, but I think the picture is rosier. We have a good number of shows where two gay men are full parts of the cast and in a relationship with another regular (as opposed to the short story arcs that counted as most of Will Truman's love life). That might not be as much progress as we'd like, but I definitely think we've moved forward.

NBC has ordered a mini-series from Brothers & Sisters creator Jon Robin Baitz. The Slap is based on an award-winning eight-episode Australian series about the aftershocks after

The Big Bang Theory is revisiting the "Fun with Flags" episode and bringing back LeVar Burton and Wil Wheaton to make it extra special.

Oh. Yes. Sofia Vergara is getting into the drama-importing business. The Modern Family star has sold a remake of Argentinian procedural Mueres Asesinas (Killer Women), about a law enforcement agency that's focuses on murders committed by women with a focus on their motivations.

In reaction to Mitt Romney's threats to cut funding for PBS, fans are organizing a Million Muppet March scheduled for November 3.

After repeatedly threatening to quit 30 Rock, Alec Baldwin fought to keep the Emmy-winning comedy from ending, offering to take a salary cut to ensure a full seventh season along with an eighth.
