The Final Girls is an unconventional comedy about Max, a high school senior, who is mysteriously transported with her friends into a 1980s horror film that starred Max’s mother, a celebrated scream queen.
Trapped inside the movie, Max finds herself reunited with her mom, who she lost in real life. Together with Max’s friends, they must fend off the camp counselors’ raging hormones, battle a deranged machete-wielding killer and find a way to escape the movie and make it back home.

Ever since his grandfather gave him a video camera for his Bar Mitzvah (after years of relentless pestering), Todd has been a one-man movie-making machine, directing, writing, shooting and editing all his work. He directed A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas when he was 29 and also makes weird shorts that have been in SXSW. He loves veal parmigiana.
