It's pretty easy to get killed in a slasher flick. All you really have to do is go into a room (a basement, perhaps) that no one thinks you should enter, run haphazardly bare-footed through a forest and fall down, or start to have teenage sex.
Happens every time.
What's not easy is to be so killer that you kill the killer and end up as the only one standing (probably all bloody) when the credits roll. We gathered up a list that celebrates the fearlessness and fortitude of 10 famous "final girls."
"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation" (1994)
"American Psycho II: All American Girl" (2002)
"Halloween H20: 20 Years Later" (1998)
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1992)
Jennifer Love Hewitt
"I Know What You Did Last Summer" (1997)
"A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master" (1988)
Jamie Lee Curtis
Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox
"House at the End of the Street" (2012)
And, let's add one final dude, too...
"Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers" (1995)
Happy Halloween -- and high fives to all you "finals."
