Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A dreary Chick Flick serial killer film, that puts a human face on the vic as it focuses on all the women affected by the serial killer.

The tone is fittingly dark, the writing impressively poetic, and the performances excellent absolutely across the board.

The masterful film, which was also released on DVD this week, sends shivers up your spine and devastates you five times over, then has you longing to wipe the sweat off your brow and start watching all over again.

Intriguing and unpredictable, this multi-layered film delivers a profound ripple effect as it explores the complexities of anger, grief, denial and retribution

Murphy's Movie Reviews

THE DEAD GIRL provides several of terrific actresses with meaty roles and for that reason alone (let alone Moncrieff's fluid direction and solid, if uneven, scripting) it deserves to find an audience.

Unblinking and critical about female-rooted and female-specific concerns.

s she stands, so perversely resistant and so utterly naked, Ruth embodies the grief and torment of being a live girl.

Karen Moncrieff's previous film, the shallow and pretentious Blue Car, in no way prepares you for this superbly acted, emotionally acute picture.

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

The five-story format is intriguing, the performances first rate, and a couple of the stories, particularly those involving Collette, Harden and Washington, are moving.

Those who pass on The Dead Girl are missing something. Moncrieff has assembled a remarkable (and mostly female) cast, and there are moments in this film that are as powerful as anything currently in theaters.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The stories don't exactly add up to anything you can put your finger on, but they're absorbing as they're happening, and director Karen Moncrieff has a smooth, sure visual style.

Carla Meyer
Sacramento Bee

Growing less lurid and more poignant as it builds its story through a series of linked vignettes, this film by Karen Moncrieff provides a showcase for its predominantly female cast.

| Original Score: 3/4

Eric D. Snider

Some chapters are more useful than others, but I'm not sure you could omit any of them, either, as each stroke provides a color that contributes to the overall picture.

Five stories compose the heart of "The Dead Girl," Karen Moncreiff's disturbing new drama that's so unsettling, it likely will leave those who see it in an unqualified funk.

Moncrieff never gets melodramatic with subject matter that easily could have been; she won't make you feel good, but she will make you feel.

Moncrieff manages to get beneath the skin of several of these characters, a nifty trick considering what a crowded world she's created. In all, it's a grueling, emotionally taxing, discomfiting film.

Murphy, devouring a bad girl role to go with her image, makes her the most alive person in what is most certainly not your typical Hollywood serial killer movie.

Full Review Source: Orlando Sentinel | Original Score: 3/5

February 16, 2007

The Dead Girl is an ambitious, unusual drama, and it's the kind of script that actors kill for, giving them rich, three-dimensional parts that they only have to play for a small amount of time, allowing for full emotional impact.

From Collette to Byrne, these women start out strong and get continually better, reaching a crescendo with Murphy.
