Deadgirl Plot Synopsis:

On a hot day, two rebellious high school friends, Rickie and JT, decide to skip class and hang out at an abandoned, derelict Asylum for the mentally ill for some beers and fun. After breaking into the place, the fun begins with some bashing and smashing, in the maze of half-lit corridors, dark rooms and narrow pathways of the institution, when all of a sudden, JT discovers the body of a young, naked woman covered with a plastic film. In the light of this grotesque, yet, unexpected finding, unresolvable questions will begin to rise, as this seemingly unresponsive girl will start growling and gnashing. Who is this girl? Was she a patient here, or was she some sort of a guinea pig that a scientist used to perform some crazy experiments on it? In the end, how human is this girl that simply cannot die?

Deadgirl (2008) Review

Deadgirl (2008) is co-directed by Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel. Be forewarned, this is not your average horror movie with the walking dead zombies. Instead, it is a weird and twisted coming of age story for these unfortunate teenagers.

Deadgirl is about the twisted desires of two high school boys. Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) and JT (Noah Segan) discover an imprisoned woman in an abandoned mental asylum. They discover that she is dead but is still animated. The Deadgirl (Jenny Spain) is so beautiful, and tied up, that JT cannot help himself from having "relations" with the seemingly dead zombie girl.

Deadgirl is a film that I will not be watching again. The subject matter is shocking and distasteful. I did not realize that Candice King also starred in this film before her The Vampire Diaries TV series days. Perhaps if you are a big fan of Hostel (2005) and similar movie titles, you will enjoy this film.
