After watching the original TCM twice over the past couple weeks, I came to realize how amazingly hot Sally is. The best part is that her sexiness isn't exploited. She is simply beautiful and it works without being overdone.

Favorite "final girl" is still Nancy Thompson. Even all these years later she's still one of the strongest characters horror movies have ever produced, & she has a plausible beauty to her, a very "girl next door-ish" vibe.

Juno from Descent. She lived past the end and didn't even get away. She lived with the monsters until she had to save someone else's stupid life with a big ass wound in her leg.

Stretch from TCM2. She was a regular person who wanted to have fun solving a crime to further her career, and ended up in way over her head. She was funny, smart enough to take another angle with Leatherface, was a loyal friend and had the best closing scene EVER.

Also, she played Oingo Boingo. Brazos, Stretch. BRAZOS. (Also; I am deeply envious of her legs. Damn.)

One of the quickest fixes they could implement is to kill different archetypes and let different archetypes live. If you made a solid slasher flick imagine how shocked people would be if the final girl died 2/3 of the way through the movie? How shocked they might be if the not so bright jock killed the killer.

For that matter there was a point in Scream 4 that I almost felt like cheering and that was when Kirby looked like the victim and Sydney was assumed dead and it looked like they were about to end the movie.

Really for slashers I would start making it clear that anyone could live or die. I'm so tired of watching a preview and being able to say who lives and who dies.
