Over at Cinefantastique Online, Dan Persons has a podcast interview with directors Marcel Sarmiento and Gaid Harel, whom Dan credits with mounting “a stylish, daring nightmare… ”
From the press release:
The film is being released theatrically as a one-weekend, midnight only, road show-style theatrical event. This is Los Angeles’ only chance to see it!
It’s been called “audacious” (Hollywood Reporter), “unsettlingly sexual” (IndieWIRE) and “pretty much f***ing brilliant” (Ain’t It CoolNews). Thought to be too controversial to release, it stands as one of the most daringly original and disturbing films of our time.
Daringly original and genre-busting, DEADGIRL is an odyssey into the soul of our alienated youth that takes the conventions of the horror and coming-of-age movies and turns them on their heads.
When high school misfits Rickie and JT decide to ditch school and find themselves lost in the crumbling facility of a nearby abandoned hospital, they come face-to-face with a gruesome discovery: a body of a woman – stripped naked, chained to a table and covered in plastic – and soon realize she is anything but dead. Quickly the boys find themselves embarking on a twisted yet poignant journey testing the limits of their friendship, and forces both to decide just how far they’re willing to stretch their understanding of right and wrong.
From the producer of the seminal “Hellraiser” and the legendary “Heathers”, DEADGIRL is a new genre classic and a no-holds-barred look at the horror of growing up. Starring Shiloh Fernandez (“Cadillac Records”), Noah Segan (“Brick”), Micheal Bowen (“Kill Bill”) and Candice Accola (“Juno”).
