Did You Know?


This is the second time Todd Strauss-Schulson and Thomas Middleditch worked together. Schulson directed a short film which Middleditch appeared in and the two quickly became friends. Schulson gave Middleditch the script for The Final Girls and told him to choose any role, accurately suspecting that he'd want to play Duncan. See more »

best script since Pulp Fiction
25 October 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Reviewers Notes:

1. Prior to 1994, Quentin Tarantino was actually known as ... wait for it ... Quentin Tarantino. The event that transformed him into a film icon to be forever known simply as "QT" was of course Pulp Fiction. The record will show, members of the jury, that Pulp was not necessarily the best acted or best produced film at the time but what it had was the best script of the era, a script so sharp you could cut yourself merely by watching the film. Scripts that good, scripts written by insiders for outsiders wanting to feel like insiders, are rare. So rare they appear about once a decade. And this is the sharp script of the present era.

2. Once you grasp that the unfettered joy in watching this film is all about the script, you will appreciate that the performance of Taissa Farmiga is simply an unexpected bonus. Every film needs "glue" to keep both the characters and the audience grounded, and here she is the glue. But she is great glue. She has a sort of "inner glow" (a la early Rachel McAdams) and also a chameleon-like quality which keeps the audience interested.

3. The rest of the cast is great, but really this excellent film is a showcase for the Fortin/Miller screenplay and the constantly innovative direction of Todd Strauss-Schulson. Highly recommended.
