    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.

    Brilliant, the haters are running out of reasons for hating thought provoking horror films. They throw out words like torture porn and Brilliant, the haters are running out of reasons for hating thought provoking horror films. They throw out words like torture porn and misogynistic, but that's why they're not real horror fans. They are Walmart safe, remake fans. Collapse

    So much more than it seems. A coming of age relationship movie all about a dead girl in the basement. Words can't describe it - just see it.

    Very cool film. Sort of like Teeth or Ginger Snaps, but much more mean spirited.

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. Expand

    It at least has an original plot, and the acting is fine, but it is a very unpleasant movie. It has a creepy atmosphere and is well edited.
