Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Final Girl is a thriller that deals with issues including rape, sexual assault, and domestic abuse in very sensationalized way -- within the context of a "game" in which a group of teen rapists chases and dispatches their victims. More of the gory violence is implied than shown, but it still has quite an impact; there are graphic shots of dead bodies, as well as victims being nonconsensually fondled and more. Characters also swear frequently ("f--k," "s--t," etc.), and some are tricked into drinking a hallucinogenic substance. Bottom line? Discussions about rape and sexual assault would be served greater justice in a more serious context, outside of this movie's unrealistic scenario.
- Sexual Content
- Many shots of girls being nonconsensually handled, fondled, and kissed by boys (see Violence section).
- Strong violence with some gore; the camera usually cuts away just in time to avoid bloody, visceral action, but the implication is equally as impactful. Some graphic shots of dead bodies. The storyline deals with sexual assault, rape, and domestic abuse.
- Frequent, casual use of words including "f--k," "s--t," "damn," and more.
- Social Behavior
- No positive messages to be gleaned here; clearly the movie is taking an anti-assault stance, but its sensationalized approach doesn't do the topic the serious justice it warrants. Revenge is one of the main themes.
