To start with, Caroll defines the “final girl” as someone who witnessed the events of the slasher happen and is the chosen one to carry that burden with them throughout their lives. Halloween’s (1978) Laurie Strode ( who after her apparent demise in Halloween II (1981), came back in Halloween: H2O (1998), and shown to be an alcoholic after all these years because she carries the burden of her brother’s deeds with her) is a really good example of this, as is Nancy from Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). However, when examining the Sam Raimi 's Evil Dead franchise, one cannot but notice that Ash fits this mold as well, and in fact the entire Evil Dead franchise is built around this notion, almost literally. In the original Evil Dead (1982) the story revolves around a group of friends who go to a cabin in the woods, and due to an ancient curse, demons start possessing the teenagers and killing them off one by one. Ash is the only survivor, which leads into Evil Dead II (1986).
The main argument of Laura Dean-Mooney is that the 21 law saves lives because the number of people killed in crashes since the law was enacted has been cut in half. The number of crashes “ has been cut in half, from more than 5,000 individuals in the early 1980s to around 2,000 in 2005”(Dean Mooney 5). Another argument made was that the effects of alcohol are magnified when a teenager’s brain is still developing, “alcohol negatively affects all parts of the brain, include cognitive and decision-making abilities as well as coordination and memory”(Dean-Mooney 9). Dean-Mooney implies that since the legal drinking age has been 21, this law is the most studied in history. She highlights that scientific studies found the 21-year-old law saves lives on and off the road.

Although it is a law commonly evaded; it prevents young people from car accidents and alcohol abuse or dependence. In the article is acknowledged that “more than 40 percent of college students reported at least one symptom of alcohol abuse or dependence”; a rate that would be highly increased if the drinking age is reduced. On top of that, it is worth considering the magnitude in which car accidents have dropped since the drinking age was lowered. The organization Mother Against Drunk Driving (MADD) CEO Chuck Hurley said “Nearly all peer- reviewed studies looking at the change showed raising the driving age reduced drunk-driving deaths.” It is undeniable that lowering the drinking age would generate an already managed issue in regards alcohol and its relation to car
