Yes it's cool.

From Ain't-It-Cool's FANTASTIC FEST preview, in which (thank you, Massawyrm) DEADGIRL gets pretty high praise:

"The thing’s pretty much fucking brilliant. I have never seen a film that so absolutely captured the sheer horror of peer pressure. Of wanting to be accepted. Of finally finding your own little piece of the world and what you’d do to protect it. A truly great horror film does two things: 1) it creates a memorable and scary monster with which to put our characters (and the audience) in a state of true panic and 2) It shows us how humans can be even worse than the monster presented. Conceptually, this thing is playing with the kind of material that Carpenter, Romero and Craven were all playing around with early in their careers. It is a film with something to say. And a filthy, grimy, semen encrusted way of going about saying it."
