From the producer of HELLRAISER and HEATHERS
Daringly original and genre-busting, Deadgirl is an odyssey into the soul of our alienated youth that takes the conventions of the horror and coming-of-age movies and turns them on their heads.
When high school misfits Rickie and JT decide to ditch school and find themselves lost in the crumbling facility of a nearby abandoned hospital, they come face-to-face with a gruesome discovery: a body of a woman stripped naked, chained to a table and covered in plastic and soon realize she is anything but dead. Quickly the boys find themselves embarking on a twisted yet poignant journey testing the limits of their friendship, and forces both to decide just how far they're willing to stretch their understanding of right and wrong.
From the producer of the seminal "Hellraiser" and the legendary "Heathers", Deadgirl is a new genre classic and a no-holds-barred look at the horror of growing up. Starring Shiloh Fernandez ("Cadillac Records"), Noah Segan ("Brick"), Micheal Bowen ("Kill Bill") and Candice Accola ("Juno").

I just want to start by saying this is a very polarizing film: you'll either love it or despise it. The film as a whole is hard to watch because of the nonchalance the characters have with their own horrific actions. It's really chilling how calmly JT describes how he raped, beat, and attempted to kill the woman multiple times. He seems to think that it's ok because he sees her as being less than an animal. Zombies are usually the monsters in works of fiction, but in this case, it's the teenage boys that are infinitely more monstrous. Human nature can be an ugly and savage thing when out of the gaze of society.
These boys have discovered a world where they are the supreme rulers. They don't have to follow the rules or accept that they are pathetic losers who will contribute nothing to the real world. In this world, they always get the girl and call the shots. It's the ultimate fantasy for them.Read more ›
Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) and J.T. (Noah Segan) are two high school buddies that seem to struggle fitting in with the "cool kids". One day they both skip school to hangout and drink some beers at an abandoned insane asylum. Eventually they stumble upon a presumably dead young woman who is chained naked to a table. Things get even more crazy as they learn that something about her just doesn't feel quite....human? Is she a vampire, zombie, or possibly something supernatural? Questions go unanswered as J.T. contemplates other uses for this exposed, beautiful woman.
This is the kind of American horror film I love to see. Forget all the lousy remakes or regurgitated popcorn nonsense. How bout one that actually pushes the boundaries and explores new horrifying territory? Deadgirl is directed by Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel and written by Trent Haaga. There are solid acting performances from the cast, plus stellar character development. I couldn't help but feel sorry for the deadgirl, as she is stuck in a nightmarish limbo to be victimized by any passing scumbag. The story also contains graphic nudity to accompany the disturbing subject matter, so proceed with caution.

There's a reason why so many horror films involve high school-aged characters (even if the actors themselves rarely look anything of the sort). Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mr. Richard K. Weems
