Movie Review: Deadgirl (2008)

by StevenHelmer

A review of the 2008 movie starring Shiloh Fernandez and Noah Segan.

Synopsis: Teenagers Rickie and JT cut class and explore an abandoned insane asylum. While escaping a guard dog, they entered a locked room and discover a naked woman tied to a table. Rather than freeing the woman, who they later learn cannot be killed, JT, instead, decides to keep her tied up so he and his friends can continually rape her, something Rickie is opposed to but is too weak to prevent.


My wife and I watch a lot of movies in the horror/thriller genre and, every once in a while, we come across a film that makes us wonder if the writers were mentally disturbed in some way. This movie falls into that category.

If I were to classify this movie under a specific category, it would be under zombie rape porn. Essentially, that is what the majority of this film consists of, a couple high school boys (Segan and Wheeler) who keep a female zombie (Spain) tied up and locked away so they can continually have sex with her.

Granted, there are some other scenes involving the one friend, Rickie (Fernandez), trying to rescue the girl and another one with the school bully, Johnny (Andrew DiPalma), getting his penis bitten off while trying to rape the zombie too. But, those were really just scenes that offered a short change of pace from the constant rape scenes.

As a result of this, by the time anything exciting actually started to happen (at the very end of the film), I found it really hard to be enthused about it. Part of the reason for this was the fact those scenes were kind of predictable. The other part of it was the fact I was still trying to grasp why anyone would think raping a zombie is entertaining to the point we need to see it over and over again.

Oh, and I should mention the very end of this film does nothing to save it. I won't go into too much detail about it. But, let's just say Rickie starts to personally realize the benefits of keeping a zombie tied up for rape purposes. In other words, there's just nothing about this movie that is redeeming.

Final Opinion

If you are part of a (sick) minority that enjoys the idea of raping the undead, this is a movie you might enjoy taking the time to watch. However, if you want to watch an actual horror movie/thriller, I do recommend avoiding this film. I know I regretted taking the time to watch it last night.

My Grade: F
