FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

stuff and things

First of all, I would like to point out that the Strange Kids Club was kind enough to interview me and then carry through and post the damn thing. Go give it a read, won't ya? Let them know it wasn't a waste of bandwidth. Or maybe that it was. Whatever your thoughts, check it out! Now, onward.

You know what? I was typing out this whole big spiel about the next Film Club pick, how I'd narrowed it down to three choices but I just couldn't seal the deal with any of them, how you guys would have to help me decide, blah blah blah. I even made a poll- a poll where you could vote! It was all terribly power to the people.

As I was listing the candidates, though, I got to one and I was hit by a big fat DUH. I couldn't see how anyone would vote for one of the other two films when this was an option. Therefore, I put on my official Final Girl robe and powdered wig (I WISH) and smacked my official Final Girl gavel down with a resounding EXECUTIVE DECISION. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your next Final Girl Film Club choice:

Hellbound (1994)

Chuck Norris vs Satan's Messenger. While the other two options are considered to be great films (or, at least, one is great and the other pretty damn good) and they're surely better than could we not watch Chuck Norris battle demonic forces in our next Film Club meeting? That would, like, go against nature. It's on Netflix Instant Watch, so chances are you have no excuses for not joining in!

The film: Hellbound
The due date: Monday, August 30
What you do:
  1. Review the movie on your site. Add a link to Final Girl in there somewhere. If you've reviewed the film before, that's fine- but you must retrofit your review with a link to FG to be included in my round-up.
  2. Email your link to me at stacieponder at gmail dot com. Put 'film club' or some such in the subject line.
  3. Bask in the warm, glowing, warming glow of Film Club Day. Easy, breezy, et cetera et cetera.

I can't wait to watch this one.

Chuck Norris and Satan never seen together. Coincidence, I think not?

Oh, I'm so doing this now that I have a movie review site. It should be a challenge to talk about the design in a film of this caliber; I'd heckle it, but then that would piss off Chuck Norris. And we don't want THAT.

Chuck Norris versus the Prince of Darkness, eh? Sounds interesting, I'm game!

Thanks again for such a great interview, Stacie. You truly do deserve the title of Final Girl. :)

It looks like Hellbound is only available in Australia as part of a Chuck Norris triple feature DVD (including Hellbound, The Hitman, and Forced Vengeance).

I'm really not sure if I can handle that much Chuck.

Oh, wow, Chuck in a horror movie?! I feel weak in the knees!

“You know that Chuck Norris is so tough, that there is no chin behind his beard, only another fist”

I'm all over this like a broke junkie on cough syrup. I already have a short review of Hellbound lying around, so this one is going to be easy. Especially since you could fill the review with those Chuck Norris facts, like "Chuck Norris is so tough, he beat up Satan, and then Satan started to cry, and he beat him up again for crying; putting him in the hospital, where he lay broken and sad about how tough Chuck Norris is, when suddenly Chuck appeared from under the hospital bed and suplexed Satan out of the hospital window for no reason whatsoever"...or whatever.

p.s. I imagined that the crossing guard was horrified that a young Stacie pummeled herself to avoid getting the same treatment from her parents. "Look I'm already beat up! Ha ha, beat ya to it! Dummies!"
