What would you do if you and your slacker high school friend (Shiloh Fernandez from Gossip Girl and Noah Segan from Cabin Fever 2) discovered an apparently dead girl, naked and tied to a rusted gurney in the farthest, dankest parts of a long-ago abandoned mental institution? Would you go get help? Run like hell? In Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel's Deadgirl, the two boys decide to stick around - and play with her. The "teen-porn-torture-zombie-slasher" flick is making the midnight circuit after its festival debut last year. The kicker here - spoiler alert - is that the girl (or whatever she is) isn't dead. And she's not real happy with the treatment she's been getting in that deserted basement. The question remains: What do you do with a body that refuses to die? Well, since this is a movie, you could just sit back and watch as all hell breaks loose. 11:55 p.m. River Oaks Theatre, 2009 West Gray. For information, call 713-866-8881 or visit www.landmarktheatres.com. $6.50 to $9.50.
Fri., July 24, 11:55 p.m.; Sat., July 25, 11:55 p.m., 2009
