Ahh, video games. A world I would often escape to as a child, and still do to this day. Where else can you be a commando, a plumber, a young boy on a quest to save the world or genetically modified person who listens to anyone who asks “would you kindly?” Michael Brower is just like any one of us; A young man who wants to escape his boring life and become something he’s not. He runs a horror club at school which has just gotten shut down, and he doesn’t really have much to live for since he mom was killed in a horrible car accident. Luckily his best friend Kyle has found just the right thing. He shows Michael a magazine advertisement for the latest and greatest in interactive video games: Brainscan!
Over the last 2 years at Internal Bleeding we have tackled a lot of strange movies, both with sick and twisted stories, and those with questionable moral values… or at least we thought! Deadgirl makes those movies look like the Disney Sunday Movie in comparison. To give away the plot of the story in the opening paragraph not only ruins the dark and disturbing premise of the film but also tests the moral fiber of this website for describing something that not everyone in this world is prepared to read. I’m sure you think that we are just over-reacting and hyping up the storyline too much, but trust us, it’s not for the faint of heart!
This week for Trailer Tuesday, we take a look at the 2008 film Deadgirl:
Since we recently were able to watch this film, I’m not going to give you the usual song and dance, but instead here’s a short summary: Deadgirl tells the story of two high school friends who find the a girl in an abandoned mental institution that cannot die. What follows is a morality tale on right and wrong, and how love and friendship can get in the way of that.
Look soon for one of our dueling reviews on Deadgirl.
What teenager doesn’t with that they could be something they aren’t? Maybe you wanted to be more popular, or maybe you wish you could get with more babes in your class, or be a jock or something. I don’t think it’s quite as common for teenage chicks to wish they were dudes though. The mid 80’s seemed like they had their fill of these types of movies, from 1985’s Just One of the Guys to the film I’m reviewing today, Paul Schneider‘s 1986 film, Willy/Milly.
