    The movie also finds the right balance of light and dark for the material. Too dark and people would be depressed and disgusted by what’s on the screen, too light and it would have no effect. Deadgirl gets it just right. No small feat if you think about it.

    This film's dithering, handsome, morally ambivalent Hamlet, is a profoundly unsatisfactory character.

    Arriving on the heels of America's torture-porn wave, Deadgirl takes a disturbing adolescent male fantasy and glosses it up just enough to pass for a legitimate horror movie.

    It's getting increasingly difficult to avoid films as bereft of redeeming qualities as Deadgirl, an exploitation-horror hybrid best left to torture-porn fanboys and academics seeking to dissect the outer reaches of the contemporary young-male mindset.

    Has more fantastically blunt, clunky, and downright laughable teen-sex dialogue per minute than anything this side of Larry Clark.

Disturbing subject matter aside it is a brilliantly crafted movie in every aspect. The majority of people will write this movie off because of the premise but if you have a heart for horror movies you will absolutely positively adore it. I can't give anything away, you just really have to watch the whole thing and see for yourself. Full Review »
