JT and Ricky are two typical outsiders. They don’t care much about school and sports and live on the wrong side of the tracks. Needless to say that all the cool kids avoid them as the plague. The only thing that keeps Ricky going to class is the beautiful Jo-Ann, even though she doesn’t seem to be aware of his existence. The only thing that keeps JT at school is his best friend Ricky. But there’s something that makes them completely unique, something that they have and nobody else. One day, while hanging around at an abandoned asylum, they discover the seemingly dead body of a naked girl chained to an operating table. But she’s anything but dead and, as JT and Ricky soon find out, she can’t be killed. Deadgirl is one of the most daring, perverse and shocking films of the BIFFF 2009. It reminds you of the early work of John Carpenter, George Romero, Wes Craven and even David Cronenberg. The long feature debut of Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel is cleverly written, stylishly filmed and exercises a morbid fascination on all those who dare to watch it. Sarmiento and Harel make us feel the pain of feeling excluded by your peers and the horrors to which this can lead.
