The Final Girl Support Group, an upcoming novel which features characters inspired by classic horror films, is being made into a television series. The novel is written by Grady Hendrix, a prolific writer and author who is known for penning Horrorstör and The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires. Both those titles are being adapted into a feature film and a television show, respectively.
Deadline reports that The Final Girl Support Group is also getting the TV show treatment. The book, which will be released in July 2021, focuses on a group of women that have been in therapy for decades. The women each suffered uniquely traumatic experiences. One was attacked by a cannibal family in Texas. Another was terrorized by a machete-wielding maniac at summer camp. One has an older brother with a habit of returning to settle scores on Halloween and, lastly, one woman says she was chased by a lunatic who entered her dreams. Now middle-aged, with some living as addicts and others becoming motivational speakers, the women are mysteriously dying off.
Promising to be both a subversion of iconic horror movies and an homage, with elements of true crime, The Final Girl Support Group takes obvious inspiration from classics such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, Halloween and A Nightmare On Elm Street.
Annapurna has secured the rights to The Final Girl Support Group, with Hendrix serving as executive producer on the project. Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain, co-creators of the ABC series The Fix, will write the script. The duo has previously written multiple episodes of Angel and The Shield, while serving as producers on shows like The Vampire Diaries.
