Book Summary

In horror movies, the final girls are the ones left standing when the credits roll. They made it through the worst night of their lives…but what happens after?

Like his bestselling novel The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, Grady Hendrix’s latest is a fast-paced, frightening, and wickedly humorous thriller. From chain saws to summer camp slayers, The Final Girl Support Group pays tribute to and slyly subverts our most popular horror films—movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream.

Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre. For more than a decade, she’s been meeting with five other final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, working to put their lives back together. Then one woman misses a meeting, and their worst fears are realized—someone knows about the group and is determined to rip their lives apart again, piece by piece.

But the thing about final girls is that no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.

    If you’re a horror lover and especially love slasher movies, then you are probably all too aware of the final girl and what she stands for. Big respect to them as I surely know I’d be one of the first to die if ever in this type of situation (unless I had a butterfly knife or some deadly chopsticks in my hair or whatever, but I digress). Hendrix is one of my fave horror authors… he brings a bit of campy fun to his stories which I absolutely adore. He does the same here… but it missed the mark for me a bit unfortunately.

    Hendrix introduces us to final girls that we are familiar with… but flips the script a bit so that we know what he’s talking about without it being a straight steal from the books/movies. Personally, I found this a lot of fun but we never really get any type of dive into these characters outside of some transcripts/notes so we know which one they were.. make sense? And our protagonist is Lynnette, who lives a life of paranoia, is determined to try and save her final girl “sisters” as they get picked off one by one… again.

    The premise of this is fantastic. The slasher/final girl lover in me loooove the references and had quite a bit of amusement in their particular stories. I do think it got a bit convoluted with all the red herrings bleeding everwhere and lack of actual suspense/terror that you may expect. Sadly, not my favorite Hendrix but not hateful either.

    So I honestly don’t think this author is for me. This is the second book of his I have read and I have found them both to be meh.

    BUT I think Grady Hendrix fans will LOVE this one. I did enjoy the unique storyline idea, the LA setting, and the unity of women in this one.

    Recommended to slasher movie fans and Grady Hendrix fans!
