Dark Sky Films Presents "DEADGIRL" -- Opens July 24, 2009

A film by Marcel Sarmiento & Gadi Harel
Starring Shiloh Fernandez (Red, United States of Tara), Noah Segan (Brick), Michael Bowen (Kill Bill, Jackie Brown) and Candice Accola (Juno)

Daringly original, genre-busting and certain to cause debate, Deadgirl is an odyssey into the soul of our alienated youth. But by injecting universal teen moral moorings into something fantastical and terrifying, the film takes the conventions of the horror and coming-of-age movies and turns them on their heads.

When high school misfits Rickie (Shiloh Fernandez) and JT (Noah Segan) decide to cut school and find themselves lost in the crumbling facility of a nearby abandoned hospital, they come face-to-face with a gruesome discovery: a woman whose body has been stripped naked, chained to a table and covered in plastic. When both react to the situation in extremely different ways, the boys soon find themselves embarking on a twisted yet poignant journey that forces them to decide just how far they're willing to stretch their understanding of right and wrong.

A no-holds-barred look at the horror of growing up.
