I loved this film. I have written about it elsewhere (at length) but I thought it was much maligned and oddly enough by men not women. Men hate it. I got slightly addicted to the cellar and the raping and so on, because it reminded me of my life in not quite so literal terms. I loathe the girl who everyone likes, JoAnn, and I like the upperworld/underworld dichotomy and Noah. Subversive.
Despite static characters, Deadgirl is a clever analysis of modern masculine views of sexuality, romance, and an insight into date rape culture. Its title character works as a symbol of a girl that men take advantage of, without remorse. It lacks a happy ending and further shows bleak relationship critiques via metaphors, such as the shunning of one's morals to find false happiness. The dark comedy works well, too.
It's a zombie film. Only it's a very extreme film. Not necessarily just in terms of violence, but also disturbing. It gets points for going where others fear to tread. It loses points in terms of predictability.
Transgressive and trashy tale that is in equal parts loathesome and interesting. The acting is OK and the production design is decent considering the budget constraints. I know most people seems to hate this movie by default and even if it is not in general terms "a good movie" I think it´s ok. The subtext (however bungled here) says something about male sexuality that is worth noting.
