Deadgirl

Deadgirl A warped imagining of every sexually deranged, 21st century teenaged boy's wet nightmare, "Deadgirl" follows a cutting-edge story idea severely dulled by a third act failure that wipes out all curiosity about its horrific subject matter. Ostracized high school stoners Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) and JT (Noah Segan) are a good-cop-bad-cop duo that ditch class to go snooping around a disused asylum where they discover a deceased nude girl chained to a gurney inside a locked room. Surprises come when the lass turns out to be some kind of sex zombie incapable of being killed, but plenty able to soak up every bit of semen the boys pump into her fairly grotesque body. JT becomes so obsessed with their necro sex slave that he sets up shop in the cold damp environment, but loses his authority when a couple of school bullies make their way into the lair and incite an especially vicious response from the feral dead girl who doesn't take so kindly to their brand of group sex. Part S&M torture porn, and part would-be zombie thriller, "Deadgirl" is an audacious movie by a couple of newcomer directors (Gadi Harel and Marcel Sarmiento) who never get around to bringing their premise full circle. Clearly inspired by "Andy Warhol's Frankenstein" (1973), "Deadgirl" is dirty little video nasty that doesn't begin to approach Warhol's superior production that was directed by Paul Morrissey.
Rated R. 101 mins. (D+) (One Star)
