The Final Girls below have survived all means of murderous psychopaths who have chased them through everywhere from their dreams to decrepit farmland to preppy college campuses, but what do they look like now after their ordeals?
Below are some of the most iconic Final Girls of all time and what they look like now, but which one do you think is the most badass?
Amy Steel as Ginny Field - 'Friday the 13th Part II'
Alice Hardy might be the original Friday the 13th final girl, but Ginny Field surpasses her when it comes to brains and brawn. Despite her fearless nature, Field's most memorable moment is wetting herself with fear under the bed and that's a moment of chilling realism most horror fans won't be able to forget.
Heather Langenkamp as Nancy Thompson - 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'
Nancy's selfless bravery defeats one of the most terrifying characters in the genre on more than one occasion, making her one of the most kick-ass final girls in horror history.
Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott - 'Scream'
Seven separate people slashed and stabbed their way through all of Prescott's acquaintances hell bent on murdering her, but she survived it all and killed most of her assailants to boot. The ultimate badass of the '90s.
Marilyn Burns as Sally Hardesty – 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'
Sadly, Marilyn Burns died in 2014 at the age of just 65, but we'll never forget her demonstrating her enviable fitness, hot footing away from Leatherface in one of the most tense chases in horror history.
Ashley Laurence as Kirsty Cotton - 'Hellraiser'
Ashley Lawrence literally went to hell and back and lived to tell the tale. Sure, she might have taken it all a tad too far with her cheating husband in Hellraiser: Hellseeker, but we love her anyway.
Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode – 'Halloween'
When you think 'Final Girl' one of the first names that pops into your head will inevitably be Laurie Strode, and who can forget scenes like the one below?
