The Final Girls present: BODY TROUBLE (19 December, Picturehouse Central

Picturehouse Central, 19th December at 6.30pm.

The Final Girls is a London-based screening series exploring the intersection between horror film and feminism, and on 19 December they have a  particularly intense double bill planned; BODY TROUBLE; a French Extremity programme, playing at Picturehouse Central.

The Final Girls pay homage to a particularly gruesome time in French film history dubbed  the "New French Extremity" period, with a double dose of body horror. First up is A l’interieur (Inside), followed by Dans ma peau (In my skin). Both films place female neuroses at their core, going to more than a few extremes while doing so.ost a panel discussion about the way the films of the New French Extremity tackled body horror, female psyschosis and the slasher tropes.
