Deadgirl (2008)

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

This isn't a review as such but just a shoutout to Jenny Spain who I had as a friend on MySpace and Twitter without ever realising that she was an actress or that she was even in this film.

I watched "Deadgirl" so long ago that I don't remember all the details about it except that it reminded me a bit of an R. Chetwynd-Hayes short story called "The Resurrectionist" and one scene in particular was done better a lot better in "Teeth".

I have no idea if the budget was a problem or if it was just toned down to receive an R-rating rather than staying "Unrated", but either way, it just didn't go far enough to make it stand out. It looked cheap, had nobody in who I'd ever heard of before, and I was bored by it.

Maybe I'll watch it again one day and write a full review but I know that I didn't enjoy it and found the subject matter to be little more than an adolescent male fantasy which I couldn't relate to.
