Deadgirl -Movie Review

I am not sure where to start with this one. Or if I should even be promoting it.
Kidnapping, Rape, Murder. Not in that order.

Dee Snider's Strangeland was a disturbing film.
Hard Candy was a disturbing film.
Kissed was a disturbing film.
They have nothing on Deadgirl.
The film was beautifully shot, the acting was amazing, the sfx were equally fitting, but the plot line itself left me in disbelief the whole time. I am not even sure how this film got made.

Plot: Two teenaged boys skip school and discover what they at first think is a dead body. As they try to move the body, the woman wakes up. JT, frustrated with his life decides to rape her. Ricky tries to save her. Quickly word gets out that JT has a sex slave, and they murder to keep the secret.

Necrophilia, addiction and insanity are the underlining subplots of this unconventional vampire movie. I was both put off and riveted by this film.
It makes you wonder about the writer who created the screenplay.

Mr. Darcy Vampyre -Review

Okay, I just posted this over on my book blog because it is part of the All Jane Austen Challenge; I am part of so, I will just post the link here

Since it is listed as one of my "to do list" on my All Vamp Challenge, I will re post it in a few weeks when the challenge actually gets under way.

Normally, I post the vampire stuff here first and then re post it on the book blog but doing it backwards this time.

Vampire Challenge 2009

As I stated earlier, I was very inspired by Stephanie over on Stephanie's Written Word and her Everything Austen Challenge where she has challenged Jane Austen fans all over the internet to spend 6 months (July 1st 2009 to January 1st 2010) doing one thing a month related to Jane Austen.
Some people watched versions of movie adaptions they never seen before, some people read copies of Jane Austen's novels they had never read before, some people made arts and crafts related to the novels or time period etc. The personal lists for the challenge varied with each blogger.
One of my Challenges was reading Mr. Darcy Vampyre.
This inspired me to want to do an Everything Vampire Challenge.

So, the rules are fairly simple,

1) You sign up here by leaving a comment that gives your Name, Blog Title and Link, And your 6 challenges.

2) Each time you finish a challenge from your list you blog about it and leave a comment with your Name, Blog Title and Link to your blog post

The goal is to introduce books/movies/television shows to each other that we might not have known about before, and to have fun.

The challenge will run from November 1 2009 until May 1 2010.

Make sure your first link is to your Vampire Challenge intro post.

Official sign up ends October 31 2009.

All Vampire Challenge

As I posted on my book blog

Yes you heard me.

Why do I want to do this?

Well, because I am in the process of an All Jane Austen Challenge right now, and currently reading Mr. Darcy Vampire. And thought why not? I have read god knows how many over the last 3 decades, and have at lest 10 more vampire books sitting in my to read pile.

So, starting in November 2009 I am going to do an All Vampire Challenge.

I will figure out how to proceed and post about it again soon.
