With the spooky season finally here, we know you’re ready to grab some of your favorite Halloween movies for an all-on binge-a-thon. Whether you like a thriller, slasher, or plain old horror… some of the best movies include one of the most iconic tropes in cinematic history: the final girl.
You know that girl. She’s the one who, against all odds, manages to outsmart and outmaneuver the bad guy up until the very end. She’s incredible, she’s amazing, she’s brilliant, and she’s the one we’re rooting for. So, in true spooky season spirit, here are seven female artists who are all of those things and we think would make the coolest final girls.
Have you seen her moves? ‘Kill Bill’ is proof enough that SZA isn’t one to go down without a fight. When the going gets tough, she gets tougher, and that’s exactly what it takes for the final girl to make it to the ending credits.
Cunning, captivating, and charming. Those are only a few of the words we’d use to describe Dove Cameron. Not only would she win the heart of the audience from the beginning, but she also has that aloof, mysterious vibe about her that would keep her safe because she could stay under the radar until it came time to strike.
Don’t underestimate the sweet ones. Olivia has that gentle, kindhearted aura around her (that we all love), but we know that it’s the quiet ones who can be the sharpest. That would be her biggest strength in surviving until the sun comes up!
Demi is all about fighting for what’s right, and we know that kind of determination and strength would be enough to keep her alive. We also know that it’s her perfect dose of girl power and solidarity that wouldn’t just save herself but her friends too!
In our movie, Nessa isn’t just the final girl… she’s the one who’s getting revenge. You don’t want to cross her because, in her own words, “I’m petty as f*ck!” By the end, Nessa would have used her wits to turn the tables on the bad guy and have him running for the hills like the total bada*s she is!
Confident and poised, we think Reneé would be the girl who would defy all the normal movie conventions and take the bad guy head-on. Don’t just take our word for it. Anyone who pens a bar like, “Tasted the blood in my mouth and left you there to bleed.” is the survivor who is going to the final round and winning without breaking a sweat!
We might be cheating by picking an entire group here, but as BLINKS, we can’t choose only one BLACKPINK member. Besides, these girls are better as a team. They’d use that incredible teamwork to their advantage, and if the flick is (fingers crossed) a little on the campy side, they’d defeat their big bad with one of their signature dance routines. Now that’s a movie we’d pay to see!
