My Final Girl: The Internet Archive and Database

The evolution of My Final Girl: Black Women in American Horror Cinema continues! Scholar and archivist Kristina Leath-Malin is working hard on making http://www.myfinalgirl.com/ one of the most extensive resources committed to preserving the stories and historical trajectory of Black women in the genre.


This interactive site offers the following and more:
The Scholarship page will be available for free soon (but I encourage y'all to donate $5.00 for access for now and shop). There you'll find timelines, databases, and quizzes, along with recommended reading that has helped frame the larger narrative of this project. I personally cannot wait to see what the final documentary will entail, plus, the written thesis I hope we'll become available soon.

Additionally, you can participate in the exercise of celebrating #Blackwomeninhorror as well!
