    Interesting to read that piece about Final Girls, after having taken a stab at the subject myself, although… can’t say I follow the argument.

    For instance, it’s confusing to me to call Alice from Friday the 13th a “very traditional final girl.” I really don’t think she’s all that much of a “nonsexual presence.”
