Movie Summary

Karyn Kusama
Released:
2009
Rating:
R
Jennifer's Body is a 2009 satirical black comedy horror film by director Karyn Kusama and starring Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody, and Johnny Simmons. Fox is Jennifer Check, a popular teenage girl with a wild streak. When she takes her best friend, the insecure Anita "Needy" Lesnicki (Amanda Seyfried), to a local dive bar for an indie rock concert one night, her life takes a turn for the strange. After some unexpected events in the concert, Jennifer emerges from the experience as a newly-posessed teenage serial killer with a taste for human flesh. And what better hunter is there than one whom her victims, male classmates, cannot resist? Jennifer's overt sexuality, which is heightened by her demonic turn, draws victims to her like flies to honey. And once she has them, she won't let them go... Jennifer's Body is rated R for sexuality, bloody violence, language, and brief drug use.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    The movie deserves -- and is likely to win -- a devoted cult following, despite its flaws.

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    Diablo Cody's glib teen-hip dialogue mostly feels like self-conscious splatter over a sorely lackluster scare flick.

  • 40

    Variety Justin Chang

    This high school horror romp tackles its bad-girl-gone-really-bad premise with eye-rolling obviousness and, fatally, a near-total absence of real scares.
