Is DeadGirl the First Great Film About Necrophilia?

Well, if the trailer is any indication, it certainly looks that way. Check it out here. Apparently, it's from the producers behind 'Hellraiser' and 'Heathers,' two of my personal faves. I also really like the poster -- it's sick and subtle at the same time. The whole package looks well-done, a far cry from most of the films that dare to delve into this topic (I'm talking about you, 'The Stink of Flesh'). Plus, you know there's going to be some zombie mayhem, which is always nice.

Anyway, there's a lot of hype surrounding this film, which, in my mind, can only be a good thing. It garnered impassioned reviews of both disgust and adoration after its debut at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and is scheduled to hit dvd on September 15th. I'll be sure to do a follow-up post after it comes out.

So, what do you guys think? Is it going to be more 'Kissed' or 'Nekromantik'? Perhaps a combination of the two? What would you like to see? Should this topic be eradicated from horror cinema, or should more movies engage in corpse/zombie fucking? Let me know your thoughts.
