Well since I have done one anime review, and it feels too soon to do another one, I shall do a weird horror movie! Deadgirl is the topic of the day blog, and it is a movie that I have mixed feelings about. The few people I know call this a zombie movie, and though there is an undead person in this movie I see it more as a psychological movie than anything else. The movie starts off with Rickie (played by Shiloh Fernandez) and JT (Noah Segan) waiting outside for school to start, JT Making fun of Rickie for crushing on one of the popular girls in school Joann (Candice Accola), when the bell rings for classes to start JT talks Rickie into skipping and to fallow him to an abandon mental asylum. After fucking around for a while they find their way to the basement where they are chased by a dog into another room with a door rusted shut where they find a nude girl with a plastic bag on her head. First they think there is a killer in the room but they see her move so JT thinks they should help her but Rickie thinks they should call the cops, after getting into a fight Rickie leaves and returns later with a gun. JT tells him that after he left the girl kept trying to bite him so he choked her to death even though she was chained down and couldn’t hurt him, he did this twice then takes the gun from Rickie and shoots her 3 times but she doesn’t die. JT comes to the conclusion that she is dead and thinks it best to keep her as a sex slave, Rickie isn’t sure what to do next but he doesn’t want to join his friend in this questionable act.
That’s just the beginning of this movie, it gets more interesting from there and even though this movie is indeed about a zombie I see it as also a coming of age tale for Rickie if that makes any sense as he has to decide what he should do about his friend keeping a woman against her will as a sex slave even though she is dead, all the while not wanting to get his friend in trouble and having to worry about other things happening in his life because of this. I will admit this story is a bit messed up, there is gore and as a horror movie it messes with the mind a bit more than it does focus on the dead girl, as it mostly focuses on what they are doing with the girl. It is also possible that they guys who made this just wanted to make a movie about sex with a Deadgirl that eats people, but the ending is bitter sweet in my opinion as Rickie has to make an extremely difficult decision. I do recommend this but personally I think a single viewing of this is all a person needs, it is on Netflix instant stream.
