Tickets to DEADGIRL now on sale!
Director Marcel Sarmiento in attendance on July 24!
DEADGIRL earned a special prize and distinction from Fantastic Fest jury-member Chris Gore last year because he believed so strongly that the film deserved to win Best Picture...but ultimately, it did not- a testament to this film's equal measures of brilliance and cringe. Love or revulsion, you can't take your eyes off of it. This is genre filmmaking at its finest and we couldn't be happier to bring it back to the Alamo for one more go.
Here's the write up from Fantastic Fest 2008...
"Many horror films feature teenage characters but these people are generally nothing more than corpses in waiting and might as well be replaced by showroom mannequins. This is a shame as teenagers face unique psychological and physiological disruptions that are ripe for tales of horror. Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel apparently understand this; their film DEADGIRL mines the recesses of the hormone-wracked adolescent mind to create one of the most original American horror films in recent memory.
Shiloh Fernandez (RED) and Noah Segan (CABIN FEVER 2) portray high school stoners who ditch school in favor of drinking beer in an abandoned sanitarium. The pair make their way into the bowels of the building, and stumble across a vicious dog. The ensuing chase leads them to a barricaded door. Upon entering the adjoining room, they find an incapacitated woman wrapped in plastic and strapped to a table. As time passes, the teens make a series of questionable decisions that put them, their friends and the audience on the spot."
