Movie Info

Ditching school on a lark in favor of downing beers and raising hell at an abandoned mental hospital, two high school kids from the wrong side of the tracks make a horrifying discovery that will test their morals and serve as the catalyst for a dangerous battle of wills. Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) and JT (Noah Segan) are the kind of kids more likely to be caught smoking in the boy's room than studying in the library, so when they skip out of class to explore a crumbling mental hospital it seems

Much of the allegorical force Harel and Sarmiento's film has built up is undone by its utterly conventional, lameass-switcheroo ending, which may be an indication that more than enough virtual ink has been spilled on this subject.

Written by a weirdo named Trent Haaga for no other purpose than to outrage, Deadgirl is part S&M porno, part supernatural chiller, and worthy only if you're interested in how far movies can go before the police arrive.

[It] has more fantastically blunt, clunky, and downright laughable teen-sex dialogue per minute than anything this side of Larry Clark.

The filmmakers don't really push the envelope visually as much as they are trying to conceptually.

... more pose than convincing psychological portrait, leaving little more than a well executed horror film with a very different kind of sexual danger.

September 20, 2009 Full Review Source:

Clearly inspired by "Andy Warhol's Frankenstein" (1973), "Deadgirl" is dirty little video nasty that doesn't begin to approach Warhol's superior production that was directed by Paul Morrissey.

July 31, 2009 Full Review Source:

A pitiless look at the worst aspects of teenage male horndog-dom ... if there weren't some poisonous kernel of truth in its grotesque, testosterone-poisoned "what if?" premise, no-one would be squirming.

A pleasant--or I should say pleasantly unpleasant--surprise...a[n]...effective character study dressed up as a grisly horror movie.

Screenwriter Trent Haaga takes the premise to some dark, disturbing places. Unfortunately, the film itself doesn't do full justice to Haaga's script

It's a tasteless film but it doesn't seem to even enjoy any of the politically correct totems it so openly sprays its bodily fluids over

A nasty concept is nice, but then you gotta do something with it.

With a slight hint of developing into more than a teen-pleaser gorefest, 'Deadgirl' instead goes for the jugular and splatters blood.

The appeal of Deadgirl depends exclusively on the intriguing image at its center.

An ingenious, awesome zombie movie

June 28, 2009 Full Review Source: ESplatter

a sombre film that never shows more than it needs to, and never allows its more outrageous or shocking moments to descend into sadistic spectacle or farce.

June 9, 2009 Full Review Source: Eye for Film
Eye for Film's ultimately hard to work up any real enthusiasm for a film that paints virtually all of its male characters as sleazy rapists with necrophilic tendencies.

Jenny Spain's performance as the Deadgirl is a thing of wonder, feral and frightening, yet vaguely seductive in a twisted way.

Audience Reviews for Deadgirl

A disturbing but memorable tale that explores the very darkest parts of the unfairer sex. Deadgirl is all about two guys who find a dead girl in an abandoned mental asylum. Only thing is, she's more undead than actually dead. One of the guys decides to make deadgirl, as she becomes affectionately known, his own private plaything. He doesn't see her as a person, but a toy. Something he can beata nd sexually abuse to his heart's content. Soon others get wind of this little supernatural woman and the boys must face becoming foul and wretched 'humans' or do the right thing. It's a bizarre film that doesn't settle on a genre. Instead it would much rather just make you uncomfortable. Having a monster movie where the monster is chained up allows man to become the monster through his own devices. Despite the out there premise, you still have to stretch your disbelief in order to accept certain characters' motivations and actions, which can stop the pacing dead. But with some hypnotic camera work and soft music, this is an original gem that is a confrontational joy to watch.

With an interesting premise Deadgirl's execution is what let it down, it feels uncertain about what kind of film it's trying to be. It has moments of comedy, splatter gore, horror, and times where it is trying to be so much more, which is when it's at it's best, these sections are dragged down by the rest of it though resulting in a B-movie style mash up which doesn't work.

Its hard to watch due to its moral conflicts of rape...but with a zombie. There was no way to make the film any better than the state it was in when the screenwriter first thought of the idea.
