If youâ€™re a horror movie fan and youâ€™ve ever thought about what happens to the last characters standing after the credits roll, tune in to hear Grady share the inspiration behind his new thriller, The Final Girl Support Group. Plus, hear the story behind how Adrienne King—star of the classic horror film Friday the 13th—came to narrate The Final Girl Support Group audiobook.
Now listen to a clip from the audiobook!:
In horror movies, the final girls are the ones left standing when the credits roll. They made it through the worst night of their lives…but what happens after? Like his bestselling novel The Southern Book Clubâ€™s Guide to Slaying Vampires, Grady Hendrixâ€™s latest is a fast-paced, frightening, and wickedly humorous thriller. From chain saws to summer camp slayers, The Final Girl Support Group pays tribute to and slyly subverts our most popular horror films—movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream. But the thing about final girls is that no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.
