THE DEAD GIRL is one of those Indie films that thinks a film is good only if everyone in it is miserable. This film takes itself WAY too seriously; even worse, it's incredibly predictable. The dialogue is as bad as a daytime soap.
Most of the cast rises above the material, particularly Brittany Murphy. Giovani Ribisi is terrible, but the script doesn't give him much to work with.
Don't waste your time on this one.
