A group of repulsively misogynistic teenage boys get more than they bargained for when they try to victimize a skilled assassin in “Final Girl.”
The thriller stars Abigail Breslin (“Ender’s Game,” “Little Miss Sunshine”) as Veronica, an axe-slinging heroine. From the time Veronica is a young child, she’s trained for “a very important job” — “the kind most people can’t handle.”
As a teen, Veronica is selected by a posse of predators who have created a game of murdering their female peers after “hunting” them down in the woods.
It seems as though this may have been Veronica’s mission all along — doling out retributive justice via violence. Maybe she’s the one who sought them out.
Check out the trailer for insight into Veronica’s origin story and to see just how satisfyingly awry the boys’ game goes. “Final Girl” comes to theaters August 14.
