High school student Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) is totally in love with his childhood friend Joann (Candice Accola) - but of course, she's going out with local top jock Johnny (Andrew DiPalma), leaving Rickie with nothing but unfulfilled dreams. And since he's not exactly one of the jocks, he hangs out with deadbeat JT (Noah Segan), with whom he repeatedly cuts classes to do booze and weed. And for today they've chosen to do just that at the local abandoned mental institution - where in one of the underground labs they find a naked girl chained to a cot. She should be dead by all means as she has been down here for 15 years, but apparently she still lives and breathes. Rickie is for freeing her and report everything to the authorities, but JT chooses to have some fun with her, and when Rickie tries to prevent him he hits him across the face, making Rickie abandon ship. The next day, JT comes by to apologize, but also to tell Rickie that, when the girl put up a defense when JT raped her, he killed her, and twice, and yet she's still alive. Heck, he even shoots her dead right before Rickie's eyes and she doesn't die. Which must of course she's already dead, and if she's dead, why not make her their sex slave. Rickie's dead against it, but their mutual friend, dimwit Wheeler (Eric Podnar) knows no such scruples (and is probably just horny). The shit really hits the fan though when more and more people learn about the dead girl, including Johnny - whose dick she bites -, and somehow even Joann gets sucked into the whole story ...


Watching Deadgirl, one can't help but thinking that what one's seeing here is wrong, as it's basically about rape culture and toxic masculinity. And yet this is also an entertaining movie, as it's neither just a provocative gross-out movie for its own sake on one hand, nor a thesis movie on the other, but rolls it into the context of a romantic high school comedy with traces of John Hughes, with some zombie horror thrown in and also rather direct sexual allusions. The result is absolutely nothing for the easily offended or the political correctness crowd, but on closer inspection the film is also not nearly as crass as it might seem at first sight, and despite maybe a few too many rape allusions is also a rather well put together horror comedy - though definitely a film that (for rather good reasons) couldn't be made anymore today, merely 15 years later.
