You’re Next: The Last Final Girl You Want To Mess With

The movie: You’re Next

The guest: Co-host of Hammer films podcast Hammertime Horror, Tom Stuart

Among the topics we get into:

  • playing with the conventions of the slasher genre
  • the movie’s transition from horror movie into a “fantasy of competence”
  • protagonist Erin as the unconventional final girl
  • the film’s unearned reputation as a feminist slasher movie
  • the human relationship with violence
