Symbols within Something Fucked Up
Deadgirl is about an immortal zombie woman that two teenage boys find in an abandoned hospital. one decides use her as a sex slave because she can't talk. he shares her with friends and keeps her chained up in the basement.

this whole idea is horrible and disgusting. what's freaky is when you start realizing all the metaphors. i'll start with Deadgirl herself: you see this creepy, undead thing. she either came from the hospital, or she was dumped there. but whoever left her in the basement took the care to chain her up. she could have been anyone. J.T. claims she's "beautiful, like something from a magazine" and decides that's a good excuse to take advantage. throughout the entire movie, she puts up with this. when she's finally free, she kills him and his friend. she is the abuse victim. the teenage boys are a little straightforward. Wheeler and J.T. abuse her and feel no remorse, Rickie is concerned about what's happening but he's unsure how to help her. there are plenty others, such as all the boys just being in different stages of abusing, but it's something you have to see for yourself to really understand it.

and isn't it ironic that in this horror movie the undead thing is the victim and all the teenagers are the monsters? i can honestly say i love this movie.
I'm surprised to see that someone actually liked the movie, but you do raise an interesting point: the zombie is the victim. You're right, that is pretty unusual.
