Deadgirl is a 2008 horror film directed by Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel.

When juvenile delinquents Rickie and J.T. skip school to search an abandoned mental hospital, they find something completely unexpected: a young woman, naked and feral, has been left chained to a table in the basement. While Rickie feels that they should release the girl and call an ambulance, J.T. proposes that they keep the girl for themselves, and use her to carry out their wildest fantasies. When Rickie protests, J.T., gun in hand, indicates that he is willing to kill in order to prevent anyone from ruining this opportunity. Horrified and confused, Rickie runs home, leaving J.T. and the unnamed girl behind.

The next day J.T. reveals something even more shocking: the girl apparently cannot die, as evidenced by J.T.'s failed attempts and strangling and even shooting her to death. The knowledge that the girl is undead only further emboldens the boy to use her for his twisted desires, and he even starts bringing other classmates to the hospital to join in. Knowing that they must be stopped, Rickie resolves to free the dead girl by any means necessary... even if he has to kill his former best friend to do it.

Plans for a sequel fell through, though the script for it (released by the writer) is readable here.

Tropes used in Deadgirl include:

  • Abandoned Hospital
  • All Men Are Perverts: On discovering a zombie, J.T's first suggestion is to have sex with it. All the other main male characters wind up being equally as deplorable. Even the ones that seem nice(r).
  • Cruel Twist Ending: This film ends happily for only one guy, who is still a social reject, fails in every endeavour, and winds up being no better than the villains of the story. To be specific...
    • Downer Ending: J.T. and Wheeler are dead. Joann is dead. The deadgirl is free to roam the world and spread whatever it is she has. And Rickie has the zombified body of Joann squirreled away in the mental hospital for his own sexual uses.
      • and in the script for the sequel, the film opens with a news report about how Rickie was the sole suspect in the disappearances/deaths, and ultimately committed suicide
  • Fan Disservice: Deadgirl's actress Jenny Spain is a pretty picture and spends the entire movie nude. But she is also emaciated, covered in festering wounds, has parchment yellow skin, and she is a biter.
  • Groin Attack: The Jerk Jock school bully Johnny painfully learns that zombie sex slaves and oral sex don't mix.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: J.T. was Henry
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: Essentially runs the plot. J.T. and Wheeler don't want to give up on their free sex and Rickie is conflicted over stopping them in part because deep down, he wants to be part of it too.
  • I Love the Dead: J.T. and Wheeler have no problem continuing their sexual abuse of the titular dead girl even after the realization that she's a zombie.
  • Jerk Jock
  • No Name Given: The dead girl's name and back story remain a mystery throughout the film.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: The type and origin of the dead girl's condition is not revealed. While she appears driven to try to bite her captors, whether this is in an attempt to eat their flesh or simply as a means to escape is left unclear. Her bite is shown to infect others, however, which J.T. plans to use to find a replacement for her.
  • Rape as Drama
  • Sex Slave: The deadgirl.
  • Tap on the Head: When J.T. and Wheeler try to acquire another girl, they lure her to their car and whack her in the back of the head with a tire iron. She just stands there for a moment before turning around, a blank look on her face and dark blood beginning to stream down from her scalp. She then proceeds to get angry and open a can of whoopass on her two assailants.
