“Demon Knight was my first introduction to the Black Final Girl so I naturally watched this movie repeatedly on cable as a thirteen year old. Jeryline had some run-in’s with the law that landed her in a motel hell work release that would seal her fate for several lived lifetimes. But she also was a dreamer. For such a simplistic, fun film, I adored her slight complexities and one-liners. The way she went about to defeat Billy Zane Demon at the end spoke more about his under estimation of Jeryline. Because remember, to be a Final Girl, it often requires very quick, innovative thinking.” Read more about Black final girls at Graveyard Shift Sisters.
