Book Review: The Final Girl Support Group

The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix

From the author of 'My Best Friend's Exorcism', 'Paperbacks From Hell' and 'The Southern Book Club's Guide To Slaying Vampires' comes this tale of a group of middle aged final girls, who survived the unthinkable. Lynnette Takington is a final girl, she is paranoid, angry and kind of dumb. But now a psycho du jour is targeting the final girls. This was good with many homages to 80s and 90s and 70s slasher films and their tropes and iconography.

Best Lines:

“Bored nonchalance.”

“Radiating contempt.”

“Panic line.”

“How would they know if I went missing? How long before someone noticed?”

“He's a stalker...they stalk.”

“Everyone wants a piece of these psychos. They call it murderabilia. Dirt from the graves of their victims. The prom dress Colleen Van Deusen was wearing when the Knight in White satin chopped off her head.”

“A monster came throught my door.”

“This was done to me.”

“Flexible ethics.”

“Squalid nonsense,”

“They literally were inbred rednecks.”

“Radiating contempt.”

“Why do you hate me?”

“Then Santa Claus came around the corner carrying an axe.”

“No-hope lunatic.”

“Writing on my Holly Hobbie stationery.”

“I am not worth hearing anymore.”

“Showing off your daddy's shortcomings to the world.”

“The monster is coming from isnide the house.”


“Cowers from his rage”

“How did I wind up trapped inside this life?”

“Deranged lunatic.”

“Morally onjectionable.”

“This is your crisis come at last.”

“It's so much worse than she ever said.”

“Many woods around this house and not enough people.”

“This has been going on for so much longer than you think.”

“If you have to ask, you don't belong.”

“It's a smile that I'm going to associate with nothing good.”
