Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt e. V. is a German professional sports club based in Frankfurt, best known for its football club playing in the Bundesliga, the top tier of the German football league system, The club was founded in 1899 and have won one German championship, five DFB-Pokals and one UEFA Cup. Since 1925, their stadium has been the Waldstadion, renamed Commerzbank-Arena in 2005; the origins of the side go back to a pair of football clubs founded in 1899: Frankfurter Fußball-Club Viktoria von 1899 – regarded as the "original" football side in the club's history – and Frankfurter Fußball-Club Kickers von 1899. Both clubs were founding members of the new Nordkreis-Liga in 1909; these two teams merged in May 1911 to become Frankfurter Fußball Verein, an instant success, taking three league titles from 1912 to 1914 in the Nordkreis-Liga and qualifying for the Southern German championship in each of those seasons. In turn, Frankfurter FV joined the gymnastics club Frankfurter Turngemeinde von 1861 to form TuS Eintracht Frankfurt von 1861 in 1920.

At the time, sports in Germany was dominated by nationalistic gymnastics organizations, under pressure from that sport's governing authority, the gymnasts and footballers went their separate ways again in 1927, as Turngemeinde Eintracht Frankfurt von 1861 and Sportgemeinde Eintracht Frankfurt von 1899. Through the late 1920s and into the 1930s, Eintracht won a handful of local and regional championships, first in the Kreisliga Nordmain in the Bezirksliga Main and Bezirksliga Main-Hessen. After being eliminated from the national level playoffs after quarterfinal losses in 1930 and 1931, they won their way to the final in 1932 where they were beaten 0–2 by Bayern Munich, who claimed their first German championship. In 1933, German football was re-organized into sixteen Gauligen under the Third Reich and the club played first division football in the Gauliga Südwest finishing in the upper half of the table and winning their division in 1938. Eintracht picked up where they left off after World War II, playing as a solid side in the first division Oberliga Süd and capturing division titles in 1953 and 1959.

Their biggest success came on the heels of that second divisional title as they went on to a 5–3 victory over local rivals Kickers Offenbach to take the 1959 German national title and followed up with an outstanding run in the 1960 European Cup. Eintracht lost 3–7 to Real Madrid in an exciting final, regarded as one of the best football matches played, which included a hat-trick by Alfredo Di Stéfano and four goals by Ferenc Puskás; the side continued to play good football and earned themselves a place as one of the original 16 teams selected to play in the Bundesliga, Germany's new professional football league, formed in 1963. Eintracht played Bundesliga football for 33 seasons, finishing in the top half of the table for the majority of them, their best Bundesliga performances were five third-place finishes: they ended just two points back of champion VfB Stuttgart in 1991–92. The team narrowly avoided relegation on several occasions. In 1984, they defeated MSV Duisburg 6–1 on aggregate, in 1989 they beat 1.

FC Saarbrücken 4–1 on aggregate, in two-game playoffs. Eintracht slipped and were relegated to 2. Bundesliga for the 1996–97 season. At the time that they were sent down alongside 1. FC Kaiserslautern, these teams were two of only four sides, in the Bundesliga since the league's inaugural season, it looked as though they would be out again in 1998–99, but they pulled through by beating defending champions Kaiserslautern 5–1, while 1. FC Nürnberg unexpectedly lost at home to give Eintracht the break; the following year, in another struggle to avoid relegation, the club was "fined" two points by the German Football Association for financial misdeeds, but pulled through with a win by a late goal over SSV Ulm on the last day of the season. The club was plagued by financial difficulties again in 2004 before once more being relegated. Between 1997 and 2005, Eintracht bounced between the top two divisions; the 2010–11 season ended with the club's fourth Bundesliga relegation. After setting a new record for most points in the first half of the season, the club struggled after the winter break, going seven games without scoring a goal.

Despite winning the next game, Frankfurt sacked coach Michael Skibbe, replacing him with Christoph Daum. The change in coaches did little to improve Eintracht's fortunes. Frankfurt achieved only three draws from the last seven games of the season and were relegated on the 34th matchday. One year Eintracht defeated Alemannia Aachen 3–0 on the 32nd match day of the 2011–12 season, thus qualifying for the Bundesliga. In 2018–19, Eintracht had the 21st highest attendance in Europe, ahead of such prominent clubs as Olympique Lyonnais, Paris Saint-Germain and Valencia CF; the club has enjoyed considerable success in competition outside the Bundesliga. Eintracht famously lost the European Cup final to Real Madrid on 18 May 1960 at Hampden Park 7–3 in front of 127,621 spectators. In the match, Alfredo Di Stéfano scored three and Ferenc Puskás scored the other four in Madrid's victory. In 1967, Eintracht won the Intertoto Cup after beating Inter Bratislava in the final. Eintracht won the DFB-Pokal in 1974, 1975, 1981, 1988 and in 2018, took the UEFA Cup over another German team, Borussia Mönchengladbach, in 1980.

Eintracht were the losing finalists in the 2005–06 DFB-Pokal. Their opponents in the final, that year's Bundesliga champions Bayern Munic

The Final Terror

The Final Terror is a 1983 American slasher film directed by Andrew Davis, starring Rachel Ward, Daryl Hannah, Adrian Zmed, Joe Pantoliano. Blending elements of the survival thriller and the slasher film, the story follows a group of campers in the Northern California wilderness who are forced to fight for their lives against a backwoods, feral killer hunting them as prey; the film was released internationally under the alternate titles Carnivore and Campsite Massacre The film's genesis began with executive producer Samuel Z. Arkoff, who hoped to capitalize on the success of such films as Halloween and Friday the 13th. Arkoff commissioned Joe Roth to produce the film, after which a screenplay was developed by three writers, including Ronald Shusett. Principal photography took place in the fall of 1981 in the Redwood Forests of Northern California, as well in Oregon, under the working title Bump in the Night. Though completed in 1981, The Final Terror was shelved for two years as a result of the filmmakers failing to find a distributor.

It was released on October 28, 1983 to capitalize on the rising fame of it stars Ward and Zmed. Critical reaction to the film was mixed, with some praising it for its believability, while others admonished it for its incorporation of overlapping dialogue and art film elements. Numerous critics drew comparisons to Deliverance due to the film's survivalist elements, as well as to its slasher contemporary Friday the 13th. In the intervening years, the film has developed a small cult following. A young couple named Lori loses control of their motorbike while riding in a forest. With Jim hurt, Lori finds no help and returns, only to find Jim dead hanging from a tree before she is killed by a trap. Weeks a group of campers consisting of Dennis, Wendy, Nathaniel, Eggar, Vanessa and Melanie, arrive at the forest; the group makes a clearing and spend the night around a bonfire telling a story about a young woman, raped and became insane enough to flee into the forest. The next morning, the group discover that Eggar are missing.

While the others search for them, Mike takes a swim with Melanie and they have sex, during which Mike is stabbed to death by an camouflaged killer who kidnaps Melanie. Nathaniel and Dennis find an abandoned cabin containing an old grave. Dennis enters the cabin and Nathaniel hears him scream, only for it to be a prank by Dennis trying to scare him. While searching the cabin for food and items, they find a severed wolf's head in a cabinet and are shaken before returning to the camp; that night, the killer appears near Margaret in her sleep and she hysterically tells the others what she saw. The campers find Marco, who has returned to the camp. After Vanessa gets angry at the men for scaring the girls, she walks off alone to the outhouse; the group spends one more night at the camp, unsuccessfully search for Melanie who they assumed was still with Mike. In the morning they go to the cabin to look for the killer, unaware that he is down in the basement with a captured Melanie, they flee with the rafts after finding a human hand jar.

While rafting along the river, the body of Melanie is tossed onto the boat by the killer which causes panic among the group. Burying Melanie near the river, the group continues on to the end of the river and find their empty, broken-down bus, they spend the night there, but the killer attacks and gets inside the bus before the group escapes out the back door. Wendy gets separated and is slashed by the killer, where the group comes to her and gives her first aid. In the morning, the group gathers camouflages themselves. Dennis climbs one of the highest trees. Marco begins calling out for Eggar, who begins to strangle Marco; the group attacks Eggar. While Dennis is watching the rest of the group fight, the killer murders him from behind and rises up to scream; as she walks toward the group, she is mortally wounded. The film ends with the group watching in horror. Film scholar John Kenneth Muir notes in his book Horror Films of the 1980s that The Final Terror exemplifies of a trend of slasher films boasting a "man-versus-nature" trope.

Contextualizing it within the decade, Muir writes: "In the 1980s, Americans had more creature comforts, including Atari 2600s, VCRs, shopping malls, less of a need to seek leisure outside in the woods... Since Jean Renoir's A Day in the Country, cinema has played with the notion of nature as a foreign place... The Final Terror is no Renoir movie, yet, it explores the idea that wilderness is just that." After the success of such slasher films as Halloween and Friday the 13th (1980, executive producer Samuel Z. Arkoff pitched the idea of making a horror film in order to "make some money" to his friend and co-producer, Joe Roth; the project marked Arkoff's first major feature following his departure from American International Pictures. The original screenplay, which had the working title Bump in the Night, consisted of a sparse plot about "rich boys and girls going off into the woods and getting killed." The screenplay was co-written by Ronald Shusett, who had co-written Alien with Dan O'Bannon.

Most of the cast of The Final Terror were new actors. Australian actress Rachel Ward was cast in the lead role of Margaret after Davis had seen a modeling portrait of her in Roth's office. Akosua Busia auditioned dur
