Deadgirl (2009) is a complicated film in that it’s different, but also difficult in its subject matter.
Two high school delinquents break into a Mental Institution that has been shut down for ages, to blow off some steam and chill out while they ditch classes. After some exploration of the facility, they break a wall down and discover a secret chamber…and a naked dead girl laying on a slab. The boys start freaking out and wondering what the hell was going on. They’re shocked even further when they discover that that dead girl…isn’t so dead! What happens next is a twisted and horrific abomination of a perverted adolescent’s Penthouse letter wet dream.
The true horror in this movie, is the evil desperation that sinks the teenage boys into heinous acts of depravity against a girl mysteriously held captive in an abandoned building. There are some very uncomfortable moments, but the film is disgustingly captivating, yet all the while denoting an incredible sense of foreboding and hopelessness to all who are in on this terrible secret!
The movie poses an interesting reflection on the teenage question game of “what would you do if…?” In this particular case, it appears that they got to fulfill their depraved fantasies. But what these boys are not aware of, is the bloodshed and carnage that awaits them. I “enjoyed” *Deadgirl (2010)* as much as you can (or should) for a film that brings the dark abhorrent sexual desires of teen boys, and brings them into a deep bloody red light.
