Rickie and J.T. are two high school seniors who gaze at the girls they wish they could get, especially Joann, the object of Rickie's affection, whom he has known since he was a child. One day, they decide to cut class and end up in an abandoned psychiatric hospital. They discover a mute, naked woman in the basement, chained to a table. While J.T. is interested in raping her, Rickie refuses and, after failing to dissuade J.T., leaves but, certain that his story will not be believed, tells no one about the woman. The next day, the two return to the basement where J.T. reveals that the woman is undead, which he discovered after attempting to kill her three times.

When Rickie finds that J.T. also invited their friend Wheeler to rape the woman, nicknamed "Deadgirl", he decides that it is time to free her. He is able to cut the chain on one hand before he hears J.T. and Wheeler approaching. He hides, and J.T. begins to rape her. After he notices that her hand is free, the woman attacks him and scratches his face.

Rickie asks Joann out on a date, knowing she has a boyfriend. She rejects him, and Joann's boyfriend Johnny and Johnny's friend Dwyer beat up Rickie and Wheeler. Wheeler rebuts that they "have their own pussy now" and Johnny throws them in his trunk, and drives to the asylum with Dwyer to see Deadgirl. Rickie convinces Johnny to force Deadgirl to perform oral sex on him, and Deadgirl bites Johnny's penis, infecting him. The next day, Johnny races to the bathroom during class and his intestines burst out of his body, leaving him in the same undead state as Deadgirl.

Having figured out that this is an infectious rotting disease, J.T. and Wheeler decide it is time to make a new Deadgirl with a fresh body. They lie in wait outside a gas station for a female victim. After an unsuccessful kidnapping, Joann confronts them about Johnny and they capture her. Rickie heads to the basement with a machete to free Deadgirl and finds Joann and Deadgirl tied up to each other, encircled by J.T. and Wheeler. J.T. tries to convince Rickie to let Joann be bitten while Wheeler starts to feel her up. Rickie defends her by slicing Wheeler's hand off while Joann unties Deadgirl, who feasts on Wheeler and J.T.

Rickie and Joann flee but cannot escape through the locked entrance. Rickie runs off to find an escape route, and when he returns, Joann is gone. He returns to the basement, where Deadgirl knocks him down, breaks down the door, and escapes outside. Rickie finds Joann and sees that J.T. has stabbed her in the back. J.T. urges Rickie to let him bite her so she will live undead. Rickie assures Joann that he loves her and will save her. She coughs blood into his face and rejects him again, telling him to "grow up," then asks for help.

Deadgirl was the only feature film by Hollywoodmade, a defunct Los Angeles-based production company.[1] Deadgirl is rated R for "strong aberrant sexuality, graphic nudity, bloody violence, and pervasive language".[2]

Deadgirl has a 29% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 17 reviews; the average rating is 4.52 out of 10.[12] Peter Debruge of Variety wrote that it "takes a disturbing adolescent male fantasy and glosses it up just enough to pass for a legitimate horror movie", though he complimented the acting and atmosphere in the early scenes.[13]

With an introduction by award-winning novelist Colm TóibínOpening with a crime of passion after a years-long love affair has soured, The Dead Girls soon plunges into an investigation of something even darker: Serafina Baladro and her sister run a successful brothel business in a small town, so successful that they begin to expand. But when business starts to falter, life in the brothel turns ugly, and slowly, girls start disappearing . . . Based on real events, the story of serial-killing brothel owners Delfina and María de Jésus González, whose crimes were uncovered in 1964, The Dead Girls is a deliciously satirical black comedy - a potent blend of sex and mayhem. Written in the laconic tones of a police report, it cleverly uncovers the hopeless pedantry of a broken justice system, and the dark world of prostitution.

But it may be essential for us to articulate why the Dead Girl as symbol stirs such enormous and contradictory feelings in the American public imagination. She now drives many of our most prominent works of narrative entertainment. From Serial to True Detective, Twin Peaks to Stranger Things, Veronica Mars to Pretty Little Liars, Making a Murderer to The Jinx to The Night Of, we seem to be living in a moment when crime stories, particularly crime stories that feature a dead or missing girl, speak more directly to our anxieties than ever before.

Briefly, one story involves Toni Collette's finding the dead girl. She is a trapped woman. Trapped by her overbearing mother and trapped by her simple life (education, employment prospects, relationship potential).

A stacked cast star in five inter-connected stories about the effects the dead body of a murdered woman has on those who knew her when she was alive and those who didn't but were in contact with her brutalized corpse. The unfortunate victim, Krista, is played by Brittany Murphy. The fact that the actress died so young, makes her playing the dead girl all the more tragic. Of the five stories, the one with Marcia Gay Harden as Krista's mother and Kerry Washington, playing Krista's lover is the strongest. It really broke my heart. I thought of all the runaways out there. The unloved and/or the ones running from abuse.

I remember that when I first saw this film I really liked it. After rewatching it recently I still felt the same. This film came out in a period that the multiple storyline/ fragmented timeline in movies was a bit of a fad. This film is no exception, but for me had a very different feel to it. It didn't feel as contrived as most films in this genre because it treats its different storylines as seperate short films with a common thread (the titular dead girl) running through them. This could result in an unbalanced film, but it actually works really well here. The tone is rather depressing and there are two stories that are somewhat better than the others, but overall it is a very engaging film with a lot of talent involved (especially a wonderful Toni Collette) and one of the best in this particular niche of cinema.

Like every young American woman, I grew up among dead girls. The most prominent dead girl of my youth was JonBenét Ramsey, the six-year-old beauty queen who was bludgeoned and strangled in her home in Boulder, Colorado in 1996. I was a year older than JonBenét, but she looked much older than me: a My Size Barbie floating on pageant stages with a frozen smile. The tension between her precocious beauty and her horrible death made her murder a story. Absorbing that story through snippets of TV coverage, I could scarcely imagine her as a peer, let alone a human. Her name became a synecdoche for innocence lost; she disappeared underneath the prurience of her death and the breathless suspicion it aroused.

But when her lifeless body was pulled from those murky waters in the late 19th century, the girl known forevermore as L'Inconnue de la Seine (the unknown woman of the Seine) began an amazing new story in death.

Now that a deceased villain is attempting to use other dead heroes and villains in a plot, Dead Girl and Doctor Strange are attempting to stop him. The villain is the Pitiful One, intent on gathering other residents of Hell - such as Miss America, Kraven, Mysterio, The Ancient One, and Dead Girl's previous teammate The Anarchist - to bring himself to life once more, with only Doctor Strange and Dead Girl, with the aid of her dead friends, to stop them. In order to combat the Pitiful One's plans, Dead Girl and Strange enlist help from dead heroes sent to Heaven, including Ant-Man II, the Phantom Rider, and someone known as the Piano-Player; they also call on Mister Sensitive and U-Go Girl, two of Dead Girl's former teammates.[3]

When Katie Sawyer, the daughter of U-Go Girl, began to manifest her powers, Dead Girl and Doop took her to the cemetery where her mom had been buried to give her few minutes with her mom. She didn't like it at first, but later understood. Dead Girl was in-between the land of the living and the dead. She helped with the reassembling of X-Statix, and her mission became taking down the X-Cellent.[4]

  • The Sister - A coroner (Leah) who believes the body is her sister's, a girl who was abducted fifteen years before the start of the film.

  • The Wife - Ruth, a housewife who rents storage units, makes a troubling discovery about her husband.

  • The Mother - Melora, the mother of the dead girl, deals with the aftermath of her daughter's death.

  • The Dead Girl - The story of the girl, Krista (Brittany Murphy), shortly before she is killed.

  • Not to be confused with Deadgirl, a 2008 psycho horror about an undead girl found in an abandoned asylum, or with the novel Deadgirl, which not related to either of these films.This film provides examples of the following tropes: Abusive Parents: Arden's mother, who is invalid and psychologically and verbally abuses Arden. The events of the film finally give Arden the courage to leave.

  • Krista's step-father, who molested her and was the driving force behind her running away from home as a teenager.

  • Berserk Button: Don't use the Lord's name in vain around Ruth.

  • Bondage Is Bad: Arden asks Rudy to tie her up and rape her in an attempt to emulate what happened to the dead girl. Rudy can't do it because he thinks it's creepy and weird.

  • Destroy the Evidence: Ruth ends up destroying all the trophies her husband (Carl) kept, setting them on fire and even taking off and burning her own clothes.

  • Disposable Sex Worker: Krista, although she's given an unusual amount of backstory, fits this trope to a T.

  • Holier Than Thou: Ruth, who is very religious and goes berserk when her husband uses the lord's name in vain.

  • Never Found the Body: Leah's sister was abducted fifteen years ago, and Leah insists (to her mother!) that she was raped, murdered and dismembered and then hidden somewhere she'll never be found.

  • Posthumous Character: 4/5ths of the film takes place after Krista's death.

  • Promotion to Parent: In a subversion, Krista's mother gets a second chance at parenthood when she discovers that Krista had a child of her own.

  • Room Full of Crazy: Ruth finds the clothes and identification of several murdered prostitutes in one of her "empty" storage units.

  • Serial Killer: At the end of The Dead Girl you can see Krista getting into a truck with Ruth's husband.

  • Soundtrack Dissonance: The last part of The Mother has Melora singing You Are My Sunshine to her granddaughter while she screams and cries in the bathtub.
