4.0 out of 5 stars Dead or alive ? 25 Sep 2009
By tallpete33 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Rickie and JT and are two high school outsiders. From under-privileged backgrounds they know they are not destined for great things but that doesn't stop Rickie dreaming of Joanne Wheeler the popular girl he shared an innocent kiss with many years earlier. His advances are later shunned in favour of Johnny, a school jock from the right side of the tracks.

Skipping class, Rickie and JT take a few cans and break into the old "nuthouse", an abandoned asylum on the outskirts of town. Chased by an angry stray dog, it is in the basement they discover "dead girl". She is dead and alive, kind of zombified and inexplicably chained to a bed, which is just as well given her penchant for biting anything and anyone that comes close. Rickie wants out but JT, he of the more adventurous mind, has uses for her and soon makes the basement his own amusement park along with their grungy friend Wheeler. "Good" things don't stay secret for long and soon Johnny finds out about the girl and is egged on by Rickie to take a piece of the action. Not a good move...

Let's be honest, this film is in bad taste but it has a provocative story, some half-decent acting, some excellent humour (the petrol station) a grungy but rocking soundtrack and it works. It's not a total "gross-out", and it had me captivated from the outset. Despite the dead girl and the blood, it is a love story. It's about Rickie wanting what he can't have, or what he's told he can't....

Noah Segan reminds me of a young Christian Slater or even Christian Bale in American Psycho as the charismatic but deranged JT. He has nothing to lose and acts accordingly. Shiloh Fernandez underplays Rickie, the smarter and more sensitive of the two very well. It's not totally played for shocks, but there are enough of those for viewers who like to watch films through their hands. A tight cast and a well-placed plot make this a far better movie than I was ever expecting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fresh breath of life in a dead genre 10 Oct 2012
By Simon
Format:DVD
Let's be honest. Zombie movies. Done to bloody death.

This film though... this film is perhaps the most original and memorable zombie flick since Night of the Living Dead. There's no outbreak, or any of the usual genre clichés that we're used to seeing (save for the whole "infection via bite" idea). Granted, there are clichés of a different sort: there are discernible heroes and villains, and the villains get their comeuppance at the end. There's also the usual stereotypes that we run into in any movie set in or near a high school: the alienated losers, the arrogant jocks... While the film does incorporate these familiar conventions, it does so in a way that I can honestly say that I've never seen done before. Moreover, not only does this film lead the audience down an unusual path, but it also does so in a way that is commendably daring.

So what's this film about then? Well, there's these two losers who have been friends since childhood. One day the two friends discover an apparently comatose naked woman chained up in the basement of an abandoned mental asylum. They soon discover that this woman is more than just comatose though: she's (un)dead. Still, zombie or not, the chick is still kinda hot... From here the film gets pretty dark and nasty, as one of the friends decides that he wants to keep the eponymous dead girl for his own personal -ahem!- use. The other guy takes the moral high-ground and wants nothing to do with it. Thus begins the conflict that will lie at the heart of this off-beat-black-comedy-cum-horror-cum-character-study.

All in all, I would heartily recommend this sick gem to any horror fans who're bored with the familiar zombie apocalypse stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nasty And Nihilistic Meets "American Graffiti" 26 April 2009
By Brady Orme VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The coming-of-age film is a genre that spans generations, that each era has it's own version of. Anything from oh, say "The Yearling" to "Trainspotting" qualifies regardless of barefoot-in-the-Ozarks or druggie-pouting respectively. Now, hold on to your Twitter Account folks, as we have a new one to add to that much vaunted list! We live in a world of violent teenagers, bad horror remakes and Economic crisis, so what would best sum this all up? "Deadgirl" tries, and although falters a bit with the execution, does quite a good job (actually).

Typical "outsider" templates JT and Rickie find solace in hanging around an old, disused Asylum when bored and out-of-sorts, and there one day they come across a naked, seemingly alive but unresponsive girl chained to a table in one of it's darkest recesses. JT fulfills his sickest fantasies on the girl (which I won't go into) and no matter what they do to her, she doesn't die - which in turn allows the sickos to invite in more losers to do what they wish, kind of like "Risky Business" as filtered through the mind of Stuart Gordon, perhaps. But, as you can no doubt figure out yourselves, there is a downside to this male bonding; she's a Zombie. Shock! Horror! Comatose just doesn't cut it.

It plays well on our societies apparent march towards the Cult of Dehumanization and all the questions that it implies; and, in the light of a current taste for teenagers-are-scum horror (See "Eden Lake" for clarification) no bases are left untouched when it comes to voyeurism and crass Daily Mail tut-tutting. However, the film does make us think about the limits of what people will do before they accept they've "gone too far" (and the Hubris that goes along with it). So, highly recommended, with a loss of stars for a crummy production look and slightly rotten acting. Better than the usual Slasher fare, let's leave it at that.

Intriguing but has sound problems. I would have liked to heard the dialogue, as some of it whispered and is almost silent, and other times it's drowned out by the music. Read more
