Pretty Dead Girl, Pretty Good Movie.
9 May 2007 | by cutiepie_1See all my reviews

Pretty Dead Girl may be about a man who falls in love with corpses, but it's not exactly what one might think when first hearing the plot...well, at least it's not a creepy film(except for the fact he's in love with dead women). This musical(yes, I said musical) black comedy romance is definitely a must see; though I was, like many apparently, disappointed at it only being a 22 minute film. Upon watching the film it makes one question, Is Love Alive? With musical star Christian Campbell starring as Mortie, our twisted morgue attendant, and Christina Souza as Viola, the woman in love with him, see the movie and determine for yourself.
