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!

MANIAC MADNESS begins tomorrow!

What the heck is Maniac Madness, you ask? Why, it's only a super Thunderdome-style tournament pitting 64 (of my) horror movie favorites against one another in a bid to find out who's the fairest of them all. Or something like that.


Every day we're gonna do some voting until the One True Maniac has been crowned. Mind, whatever criteria you use to determine who wins your vote is totally up to you. Maybe you'll vote for the contender you think would win in a brawl. Maybe you'll vote for the most ridiculous or the movie you prefer or whichever contender looks cooler. Or stupider. It doesn't matter, and I don't care! The only important thing is that you vote, and maybe that you spread the word because the more votes, the more fun.

Here are your contenders! A super-sized version for a-printin' and/or a-lookin' can be found here. A good place to get some "the polls are open"-style updates is the Final Girl Facebook page. May the biggest maniac win!

Edited to add: If you're confused about some entrants, don't worry. The limited space on the chart requires shorthand, but when the time is right, explanations and full names will be given.

Cathy? Esther? Lasers? Which lasers? The lasers from chopping mall or the lasers from that jerk computer in Resident Evil? All lasers?

Specifics will be revealed whenever that category comes around for a vote. Space requires shorthand, but ultimately there will be no confusion.

Can we pit Critters against Critters 2? also, "Dolly Dearest" gets the shit kicked out of her by almost everyone on this list. My bet will always be on "Possessed Mirror" for everything.

I'll definitely throw Critters in Maniac Madness 2015! Hmm, maybe facing off against the Langoliers (space meatballs)...

Poor Dolly Dearest. She's so Dollar Tree. :(

Sounds exciting, can't wait! Also, I can't believe I'm not already following the facebook page.

You know you're a believer when "Naked Space Vampire" needs no additional explanation.
