The Final Girls celebrate the grisly, gruesome world of body horror. Tales of cannibalism, decay, extreme body modification and all those lovely bits in between. Often misrepresented as pure shock value, these films pose deeper questions of gender, sexuality and body issues, confronting us with the grim reality that our ideas of body image may be more fraught than ever.
