      I see it almost backwards; for me - and my college thesis on the same thing - it was that gay men identified more with the final girl, who was a bit of an outsider, inhibited, sometimes socially awkward, and how she ‘came out’, rose up and took on the killer. The hints that the killers were queer in the old 80s films were usually just shortcuts for the then Reagan-era audience of sexual ‘deviant’ = psychotic killer of heterosexual American youth. Whereas Laurie, Marti, Ginny, and Sidney Prescott all have a, hate to use the term but ‘fag hag’ kindness that makes us/me root for them more than their gaggle of popular friends, who are often coded as the type of kids that would call you a fag.
