Much of the allegorical force Harel and Sarmiento's film has built up is undone by its utterly conventional, lameass-switcheroo ending, which may be an indication that more than enough virtual ink has been spilled on this subject.

The filmmakers don't really push the envelope visually as much as they are trying to conceptually.

A pitiless look at the worst aspects of teenage male horndog-dom ... if there weren't some poisonous kernel of truth in its grotesque, testosterone-poisoned "what if?" premise, no-one would be squirming.

Written by a weirdo named Trent Haaga for no other purpose than to outrage, Deadgirl is part S&M porno, part supernatural chiller, and worthy only if you're interested in how far movies can go before the police arrive.

... more pose than convincing psychological portrait, leaving little more than a well executed horror film with a very different kind of sexual danger.

A pleasant--or I should say pleasantly unpleasant--surprise...a[n]...effective character study dressed up as a grisly horror movie.

[It] has more fantastically blunt, clunky, and downright laughable teen-sex dialogue per minute than anything this side of Larry Clark.

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.

Screenwriter Trent Haaga takes the premise to some dark, disturbing places. Unfortunately, the film itself doesn't do full justice to Haaga's script

A disturbing but memorable tale that explores the very darkest parts of the unfairer sex. Deadgirl is all about two guys who find a dead girl in an abandoned… More

Deadgirl is fucked up, at least conceptually. In terms of execution, it doesn't really take any chances. Two horny, beer loving, but less than alpha-male… More

With an interesting premise Deadgirl's execution is what let it down, it feels uncertain about what kind of film it's trying to be. It has moments of… More
