I’m a huge fan of horror movies, psychological thrillers, ghost stories (if anyone has any recommendations, please comment! I don’t mind reading subtitles either!). I can’t say that I’m a huge fan of zombie movies, though — zombies have never really been my thing. Yet, I’ve been hearing some good reviews about this movie, Deadgirl.
It’s a controversial movie focused around two high school boys discovering a dead body — really, a female zombie — tied to a table. From there, it’s how they both react to the discovery.
I watched it, and there’s torture, gore, continual rape of the dead girl, and supposed social allegories.
bonus points if you can name this music video where the lead singer romances a dead woman
Here’s the main question for you: How do you feel about the media sexualizing dead women? What is so appealing about dead women? And what does that say about men or even our society?
