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.
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.
Surprisingly enjoyable for a film I never want to see again. The talented, albeit very amateurish direction, is let down by some appaulingly bad scenes, but ultimately this is a very clever film which, whilst making I Spit On Your Grave look tame, is a much better movie.
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.
the only thing i could have found redeeming about this film was an interesting explanation of what she was or why that dang dog was there but neither of those things got answered. maybe this was supposed to be satire of masculinity? idk. not enjoyable. where did she go? what the hell? main character looked a little like gerard way though, that's hot as hell
I like horror movies, I like shocking movies and b-movies. But this one is just plain disgusting. It isn't a movie to provoke people about violence and women abuses. This movie is just really bad... I hope I will forget it as soon as possible.
A somewhat ok premise is destroyed by everything else in the film. Awful, awful writing is spit out by some truly cringe worthy performances. The only good performance is the zombie girl, who is good(when she isn't being raped). The writing is stupefyingly bad and when the radiohead montage kicks in, I feel like apologizing to every other indie-horror flick, because they definitely aren't as bad as this one.
