UPDATE - SXSW 2011: Could a Sequel to Deadgirl Ever Come Crawling Out of the Grave?
If you missed Trent Haaga's Deadgirl at festivals or on DVD, do yourself a favor ... Rectify that situation immediately. The film is nothing short of riveting and features an absolutely fearless performance from star Jenny Spain. Like all good movies, talk of a sequel has begun to rumble ...
According to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog Haaga has written a screenplay for a sequel in response to the backlash from women who found the original film misogynistic.
For the sequel it will be girls who find a naked "dead" guy. Presumably, they make different choices than the guys did in the same situation, but here's one instance where a sequel could actually help further define and illuminate the issues raised in the first film.
Look for more on this one we hope very soon.
According to Bloody Disgusting the above report is a bit off in terms of the plot. Deadgirl 2 would actually follow a group of females who find the same "zombie" girl from the first film. More Jenny Spain? We're TOTALLY in!
