Storyline

Set in contemporary London, DEAD CREATURES follows a group of seemingly-normal young women who have all contracted a terrible, degenerative illness that forces them to murder and feed on human flesh. Adjusting to this inhuman way of existence, the girls read fashion magazines, talk about shagging boys, and try to eke some joy out of "living" in the time left to them. Their only concerns are where to find human flesh and how to avoid a zombie hunter. However, things change for everyone when a newly infected girl turns up... Written by Anonymous

I loved it! Not for the casual viewer.
8 September 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Let me start off by saying that the cover for this film completely sucks and it has nothing to do with anything that happens in this film. DEAD CREATURES is not a horror movie. I will also say right away that this film is definitely not going to appeal to very many people at all. It is shot in a way that is reminiscent of a documentary. The film is about a community of women somewhere in England who move from one nasty apartment to the next and who are suffering from a zombie-like disease. They have to eat human flesh to stay alive. The only serious problem is that they are decomposing and it gets more and more difficult for them to hide their disease from the public. Now I know that it sounds like a horror film, but the movie itself is actually quite talky. It is very slow-paced and it's remarkably grim tone-wise. There are a lot of scenes where the girls just talk to each other about things and talk about their lives and stuff. The opening scenes in the film remind me of that one scene in Larry Clark's KIDS where Rosario Dawson, Chloe Sevigney, and all those other girls are talking on the couch. If you watch this film expecting a movie where women just go around eating people's guts and stuff, you may be disappointed. There are only a handful of those scenes. However, I have to say, despite the fact that there are only a few scenes of actual on-screen violence, the gore in this film is really really nasty and quite repugnant. In fact, this is one of the few films I've seen where I actually felt quite sick to my stomach while watching. I probably shouldn't have been eating pizza rolls when I watched it. But yeah, just be warned that it's very well done and very sick. Anyway, there's also a running subplot throughout the film that has to do with a madman who is going around capturing zombies and then torturing them and killing them. I don't want to give too much away, but the reasons surrounding why he's doing it are kind of interesting. This film kind of reminded me of HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER, except that the murderers were cannibalistic young women. A lot of horror film-buffs will hate this film for all the talking going on. However, I quite enjoyed the dialog and I wasn't bothered by it at all. Also, being the quasi-feminist that I am, I found myself really caring for these women who have to force themselves to eat flesh and guts and stuff. I felt particularly sorry for the woman who used to be a vegetarian. However, this isn't the kind of film where the characters just whine non-stop about being the way they are. This is the kind of film where they eat human bodies in a very casual, and unassuming way. The film did kind of scare me with the idea that all these women seem like perfectly nice, normal, everyday people. It was really good. So above all, I can't really recommend the film since most people will hate it, but I absolutely love it and I am very happy that I bought it.
