It's getting increasingly difficult to avoid films as bereft of redeeming qualities as Deadgirl, an exploitation-horror hybrid best left to torture-porn fanboys and academics seeking to dissect the outer reaches of the contemporary young-male mindset. show more
The movie also finds the right balance of light and dark for the material. Too dark and people would be depressed and disgusted by what’s on the screen, too light and it would have no effect. Deadgirl gets it just right. No small feat if you think about it. show more
This film's dithering, handsome, morally ambivalent Hamlet, is a profoundly unsatisfactory character. show more
Are you ready to be disturbed? In this world where anything goes and nothing seems to phase anyone since we have all lost our innocence long ago, perhaps this film "Deadgirl" will have a few scenes up its sleeve to surprise you and make you squirm in your seats. I know I did. I saw this film at the Florida Film Fest this past month at the Enzian Theater in Orlando, a great place for drinks and snacks, but not a good film to watch while you are eating or drinking. Perhaps your stomach could stomach watching "Deadgirl" while imbibing and digesting. I could not. I dig crawl up into my seat many times, wrapping myself in my scarf in an attempt to escape the revulsion that certain scenes elicited. Some guys will back me up on this. If it was disturbing for me to watch as a woman, I can only imagine that some of youe guys will be man enough to say *************** you out also, and I am not talking about the dead naked woman herself. That was no big deal, it was simply the particular scenarios involving the characters and their interactions, shall I say, that really got to me. This is not your average horror film and that is a good thing indeed. Some of us still like to think even while witnessing some very good splatter and effects after we have gotten to know the characters a bit. And some characters did get bit. Just wait until you see who.
