FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP. | GRADY. HENDRIX
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A genre-bending gem that is more action-thriller than horror, but definitely made for Slasher fans with plenty of nods and classic nostalgia. Also plenty of twists and only a little predictable.

I discovered Hendrix with the vampire bookclub and a friend was reading this one at the same time... I am really liking the references to all the horror movies :)

ShyBookOwl This is a good one! It goes in a lot of directions I wasn't expecting. More thriller than horror, though! 2mo
BoleyBooks @ShyBookOwl - I agree! I guess we have experienced stories with more grit and gore. His books are usually on the lighter side of horror. I have only read a couple by him…very entertaining. 😊📚 2mo

The Final Girl Support Group follows a group of women who survived horrific massacres in their past, inspired by the slasher films of the 1970s and 1980s. They call themselves the Final Girls, and they meet regularly with their therapist to cope with their trauma. However, their lives are turned upside down when someone starts targeting them one by one, forcing them to fight for their survival again.

Lynnette Tarkington is a real life “final girl.” Years later, she and the members of her Final Girl Support Group find themselves hunted once again.

80s Core ✨ Slasher ✨ Visceral

For fans of classic horror films and WTF moments

I love that this book switches it up so that instead of Final Girls being survivors in Slasher movies, they're real survivors whom the slasher movies are based on. I also love that the events/movies parallel popular slasher movies all horror fans know. Summer Slaughter Part III in 3D... sound familiar? Lol

ShyBookOwl @Librariana I thought it was a lot of fun and quite unique. Especially having older women as the MCs (u don't get a lot of that in horror... though it fits right in with the new Halloween movies!) 4mo

Well, the last few books for the #Scarathon event did not do well in terms of upping my numbers like I had hoped. Thank goodness for the bonus games. I love this event and as usual have had such a great time participating. Thank you to everyone that helped make this a success and keeping it going. Looking forward to next years! But for now, I'll prepare to rock #WinterGames2023! #TeamCreepinItReal #Scarathon

The first part is good. The second part is bat sh*t crazy. Then the third part makes sense again. The second act I was seriously hating it, but in the end the book redeemed itself. I loved all the nods to classic horror movie series. This was fast paced and action packed. Not my favorite by Hendrix but I enjoyed this.

😮‍💨 Second book I read by this author and I'm still not a fan. I guess he is not the author for me. I was so excited to read this book and was disappointed by it. It was slow and boring. There was only like 10 minutesof action where book got interesting. And then went back to being boring.
2/5⭐️

Overall a pick for the entertainment value. I was raised on 80‘s slasher flicks & their tropes & I have a fondness for horror parodies, so this book is kind of up my alley. The MC Lynette drove me a bit crazy, as did her fellow final girls but I ended up rooting for them. I liked the twists, some I guessed, others I didn‘t & the ending scene rocked, but it was a bit tough to keep everyone straight. Lots of trigger warnings & gore & a crazy ride!

If you like horror movies and the Final Girls trope, along with some twist. You‘ll love this book! I found myself enjoying the characters and actually rooting for them bunch. Some times the Main Final Girl (Lynnette) can be insufferable but for the most part I enjoyed the ride of seeing her handle situations that only a Final Girl could.

It‘s possible for a main character that you aren‘t particularly fond of to grow on you. This book remained on my TBR for over a year. I decided to purchase a copy and dive right in. I enjoyed reading it from start to finish.

I‘m probably gonna have to read some reviews once I finish this. I am at 73% and while I understand the concept I am not getting it. Maybe something is gonna happen in this last 27% that will help me. Currently reading on a bench in front of this beautiful old tree. Objects in mirror are much bigger than they appear.

ShyBookOwl Are you a big slasher fan? I loved this one but also have a huge soft spot for horror/slasher and final girls (literally wrote my thesis on the final girl topic) 1y

A final girl is a the last one standing after a massacre…in which she has taken out the perpetrator.

We‘ve all watched at least one movie with a final girl. I enjoyed his poking at the gruesome slasher movie industry, but it was unnerving to see how the terror they lived through could then be immortalized in film. Complete with memorabilia. All these final girls were survivors who knew how to fight tooth and nail for their lives.

I loved all the 80s horror movie references but overall this plot was pretty flimsy. Also, Hendrix‘s style is comedic horror but this felt less funny and more chaotic. I think my fave by this author is still My BFF‘s Exorcism but this was an interesting read given its October. I felt like I watched a bunch of horror movies without actually watching them. 🍿 #AuthorAMonth

I admit it, I‘m a huge Grady Hendrix fan and this book is on par or better than the other books by him that I‘ve read.

I think this book perfectly encapsulates everything that is exciting about the slasher horror genre while mayyyybe looking at it with a slightly critical eye.

If you enjoy horror, you won‘t be disappointed!

I had such high hopes for this book, which may be why I was so disappointed. I mean, a group of women who were all final survivors of classic horror movies!? How awesome would that be!? I was expecting there to be classic slasher vibes, over the top acting, and plot holes left and right. I got all of that and more... not in a good way!

As someone who grew up on 70s and 80s horror films (the first movie I ever remember seeing is The Amityville Horror when I was no older than 5), I was looking forward to reading this novel. It was fun spotting which specific movie was being referenced and exploring the range of coping mechanisms of the various final girls. It drags a bit in the middle but picks up towards the end. There's not much here for those who aren't campy horror movie fans.

I‘m so the opposite of a being a horror movie fan but I found this read to be full of great twists and turns although at times it still managed to drag a bit. I did enjoy the dark humor and while there is no one character I firmly loved it was still a perfectly imperfect read. Not as good as his others though. #scarathlon #TeamMonsterMash @StayCurious @TheAromaofBooks #bookspin

When I first read Hendrix, I thought he was a female author, he wrote females so well… and then there‘s this. Yikes. I don‘t know why ‘trauma‘ has to equate to selfish, annoying and spoiled, but I had zero sympathy for any of these characters. It‘s a trope I‘ve seen before, and hate. I should be able to empathize a little bit for characters that have gone through terrible events. Don‘t make me hate them. And the narrator? Yikes. All round bad.

I loved the premise of this - if all those slasher films were based on real events, what happened to the “final girl” who lived? But it was a bit over the top. My guess is that all the twists and turns were meant to mimic the films it was inspired by, but it just really made the story drag at times instead.

This was a great read. It had lots of twists and suspense. I‘m really glad I kept reading. I loves the writing style and the little articles and slasher film inserts between the chapters. They gave the book an extra layer and contributed to the story.
