Two outcast high school boys, Rickie and J.T. are messing around in an old asylum when they stumble upon a basement area locked up tight. They break in and find a naked girl chained to a gurney and covered in a sheet of plastic. At first glance they think she's dead but a closer look reveals her to be very much alive. J.T. suggests they use her to fulfill their sexual pleasures while Rickie clearly wants no part of it so he leaves.
Later on J.T. finds Rickie and tells him he needs to come with him and see something. He takes him back to where the girl is and explains that he strangled her to death. Rickie starts to freak out until J.T. shows him that she is still alive. It seems the dead girl can't die. He again tries desperately to convince Rickie to have sex with her. He's now rationalizing that it's okay since she clearly isn't human but Rickie isn't buying it.
The following day Rickie arrives at the asylum only to find another classmate, Wheeler going to town on the undead girl while J.T. Watches. He's totally disgusted by the whole ordeal but afraid or unwilling to turn in his friends. As time progresses J.T. Slips deeper and deeper into this weird relationship with the non-responsive girl. Wheeler starts flapping his lips a little too much and a couple of other boys force him to show her to them. They explain her off as a kinky S&M sex slave who will do anything and convince the head bully to put his member into her mouth. As expected she bites him and the following day he begins to change. He shits his intestines out but big surprise, doesn't die. This gives J.T. An idea, he now sees the potential to make indefinite numbers of these living sex dolls. So he and Wheeler set out to abduct a new girl but the best laid plans often go astray.
This is one of those movies that makes you feel like your a bad dirty person for watching it yet somehow you just can't stop watching it. If the continual raping and sodomizing of the undead dead girl isn't unsettling enough. The transformation of J.T. And progression of his obsession with her will make your skin crawl. There is one scene where he is on top of her applying make up to her face and talking intimately to her that left a real bad taste in my mouth. The girl herself is very creepy of her own rite. She looks like she would fit very comfortably in the best J-horror although this film is American.
This just might take my most disturbing film award this year as “Inside” did last year. It's most definitely a candidate. I couldn't give it more then 3 stars although it had my attention throughout, it just made me feel too icky to give it more. In spite of my warning on the nature of the film, I truly hope someone else watches it. I'd really love to hear a second opinion.
