Plot
Have you ever had sex with a ghost? The main character sure has! At least once, in your life, you will hear of such an occurrence and this is the myth Deadly Crush is based on. Give this film twenty minutes and it will not let you down. At the turn of the second act, all that might have confused you will start making sense. This film is very stylistic but there are reasons behind its eccentricity.
For reasons that will become obvious, and because this is a horror movie, the main protagonist needs friends, enemies and hostile encounters to keep this gimmick going. This includes her best friend, a psychic, and a rude sheriff. Gee, this is one busy woman. Expect lots of sex, nudity, drinking, a bit of gore, for good measure, and a shitload of compositing.
Easy on the editing! That ghost POV is an excellent idea and I wouldn’t want it any other way, but the digital effects are at times overwhelming. It’s like putting ketchup on a steak. This is a good, unprecedented story, though, with a small budget and a lot of ambition. It’s dark and erotic. From the script to the execution, this is a fascinating production.
