Product Details


Product Description

It has been called audacious (Hollywood Reporter), unsettlingly sexual (IndieWIRE) and pretty much f***ing brilliant (Ain t It Cool News). Thought to be too controversial to release, it would go on to shock festival audiences, outrage religious groups, and blow away midnight movie crowds from coast to coast. It remains one of the most daringly original and disturbing films of our time.
 
Shiloh Fernandez (RED), Noah Segan (BRICK), Michael Bowen (KILL BILL) and Candice Accola (JUNO) star in this story of two high school misfits who cut school to explore the remains of an abandoned hospital. The gruesome discovery they make will test the very limits of their sanity and tear apart their young lives forever: A woman stripped naked and chained to a table. She s abandoned, beautiful and dead...or is she? From the producer of HELLRAISER and HEATHERS comes this depraved, poignant and genre-busing new indie classic about intimacy, morality and the horror of growing up. You may scream in terror, gasp with disgust, or debate it for days, but one thing is for certain: You will never forget DEADGIRL.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, but... May 12 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...not for everyone. There's no extreme violence, but the subject is very morbid and can be too shocking for certain people. Deadgirl brings something truly original and refreshing to the horror genre. Leave out the supernatural element of this story and you've got something that could happen for real. That's what makes this story so disturbing, but also gripping and plausible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monster Teens June 27 2010
Format:DVD
Finally! The elementary-school-boy-monster has had a classic 'horror' film for well on about thirty years in 'Lord of the Flies'. Now 'Deadgirl' has come along to show us what Jack & Ralph are like as teenagers. Innocent, childish and naive evil blossoms into meaty teen brain-stem depravity that, while directed with a delicate and not quite fully-visceral style, will leave the unseasoned horror movie viewer feeling...queasy. This is the movie to cure adults of the sentimental desire to return to youth.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dark and twisted coming of age story Feb. 12 2011
By titania86 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Misfits Rickie and JT decide to skip school and drink beer in an abandoned insane asylum. After taking out their teen angst on the place, they incur the wrath of a guard dog. They narrowly escape it deep in the bowels of the building and find a room that's been sealed for a long time. In that room, they find something that will change their lives forever: a dead girl tied to a gurney and wrapped in plastic. They soon find out that she is alive, but extremely savage and seemingly immortal. JT wants to take advantage of having a nude, helpless female lying around, while Rickie feels quite the opposite. When word gets around and more people get involved, Rickie and JT embark in a power struggle that spins out of control and leads to an unexpected and dark resolution.

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. Their world is completely removed from reality, in a dark, dank basement that is the polar opposite of reality in almost every way. I hate the characters. They are pathetic excuses for human beings, but I can see where they come from: a place where no one cares what happens to them and where they have no future. It's a great character piece where I don't agree at all with them and I think they are horrible and stupid, but understand them just the same. That's the mark of great story telling.

Rickie is the only male character with any sort of promise. The others are satisfied to get sexual gratification from a mute, unaware woman than have a real, healthy, consensual relationship. Rickie still isn't completely innocent because he knows that what his friends are doing is wrong, but he hesitates to do something about it. He seems to be torn between resigning himself to the emotionless situation with the dead girl or attempting to make a real human connection with a living, breathing classmate. This film is kind of a sick and twisted coming of age story.

The woman being used and raped in this film is a zombie. This fact doesn't make her any less of a victim. Society in general objectifies women in the advertising and the media all the time. Women are frequently equated to objects or animals and shown as inherently inferior to men. Sometimes I find myself desensitized against such advertising because it's so pervasive and we as a society see literally thousands of advertisements each day. This general environment can make it easy for some to internalize this sexist thinking and go even further to say that anything can justifiably be done to them. The woman's rapists distance themselves from her by thinking of her as less than them, less than human. This film holds up a mirror to our society and makes us see the ugliness within it.

This is a powerful and uncomfortable film to watch. It's well produced, written, and acted. Jean Spain gives a wonderful performance as the Deadgirl and manages to make her both sympathetic and dangerous without even speaking. A lot of you probably wouldn't like this movie, but if you like dark films that deal with the horror within humanity then this is probably the movie for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, disturbing and original!! July 24 2009
By Horror Master - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Despite the few plotholes concerning the end of the film, this movie is a very different, very unsettling and a very well acted breath of fresh air to the horror genre. Jenny Spain puts on a remarkable performance in her silent role and the leads were very well cast. I just finished watching the film not 10 minutes ago and the final creepy frame of the movie is stuck in my head and I'm sure will do the same to anyone who sees it. If you're bored with today's watered down PG-13 crap that Hollywood calls "horror", check this film out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dark, dark, incredibly dark Jan. 11 2013
By walletboyniac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Deadgirl is all kinds of wrong. The first time I saw this movie, I absolutely hated it. Trying to go in with more of an open mind the second time through, I was able to appreciate how horrific it really is. Rickie and JT are twentysomething high school students (uh, with a BMX bike - See, they're in high school!). Complete degenerates. Guess I had to accept that, too. Anyway, one day while ditching class, smoking, drinking, and vandalizing, they discover a "deadgirl," essentially a zombie, in an abandoned mental hospital. JT develops an unhealthy obsession with her. Yep, there's corpse-screwing. He lets his buddy Wheeler get in on some of the action. They even peer pressure/trick the jock into having his way with her. These guys seem to have no problem doing it in front of other guys. Creepy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously dark Aug. 26 2009
By Peter A. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's a dark movie that is unlike any you've seen before, pushing over a previously untransgressed line-- immediately appealing to me. This is not a standard scare-flick with basic characters, but depicts how far young men will deviate from the norms of behavior when it comes to the object of their desire. This is a rewarding and highly memorable trip down a rabbit hole to a dark land of horror. The dead girl herself is a stunning presence, and the sound environment is unnerving. If you are into horror, dark fantasy, and taboo subjects, it's essential viewing. There's no over-explanation through obvious exposition, so there is an air of mystery and unknowing throughout the movie. It is like a surreal element dropped into high-school life that spreads a poison through it, though that poison comes from the minds of the boys, and the dead girl is just a catalyst, though a dangerous one! I'm looking forward to putting this in the DVD player for guests, unsuspecting or otherwise!

4.0 out of 5 stars Violating the lines of conventional horror Aug. 26 2010
By C. Christopher Blackshere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is one demented mindscrew. Deadgirl('09) obliterates all expectations while drilling deeper and deeper into the sexual subconscious. It's an uncomfortable descent into the darkest abyss of human compassion. It explores themes of guilt and temptation with a dark moral complexity while also balancing vulnerability with invincibility. Bizarre, original, and totally morbid, this movie has cult status plastered all over it.

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.
