8. The Dead Girl

Original Release Date: December 29, 2006

Box Office Earnings:  $4,789 (USA opening weekend), $17,311 (USA gross) — it received a limited release across the nation, so this isn’t that surprising.

Critical Acclaim: Karen Moncrieff won the Grand Special Prize at the Deauville Film Festival and the Best Screenplay at the San Diego Film Critics Society Awards. The movie also received four other nominations, but none of the big awards.

About the Role: While Josh Brolin’s role is small, it’s important. He plays Tarlow, who was supposed to give Brittney Murphy’s Krista a lift. When he backs out of the lift at the last minute, it starts a spiral of events that lead to Krista’s murder. Think of his role as a Sliding Doors moment but without the other timeline that shows what could have been had he held up his side of the deal.

Simply the Best: This was the fifth and final part of the franchise. Again, because Brolin didn’t have a large role, it’s not a movie that can really be pushed to the top of the list. However, it’s an extremely important and well-developed movie that simply is a must watch.

Despite being made in 2006, The Dead Girl focuses on almost a fully female cast–and the characters are well developed and positive (for the most part). This isn’t about cookie-cutter movies just to stop complaints.
