Quick Review - Deadgirl (2008)

Deadgirl (2008) Dir. by Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel

Two high school boys discover an imprisoned woman in an abandoned mental asylum who cannot die.

This was definitely one of the most unique zombie movies I have ever come across. At first, it seemed more like it was going to be a porno, but after the characters begin to develop, it turns into a solid film. There are some parts that are generally disturbing, and I don't want to go too much into it, but you will understand. The effects of this movie were actually done pretty well, and the make-up was excellent. Jenny Spain as the deadgirl really got to me, and I felt for her character. The ending of the film was something I didn't expect, but in a good way, and showed the completion of one character's development. The acting by Noah Segan and Jenny Spain was extremely good, and I think they drove this film. I would recommend this movie as at least one watch, just to test the waters.

Entertainment Value: 7/10 Asylums
Cinematic Value: 6/10 Asylums

Glad to hear you liked it! It's a hugely polarizing film, but I think it's one of the best horror films of last year.

I wasnt into this one, it was just too contrived and sensational for my taste, but I can easily see why it has become so popular
