LOVEFiLM Review: Jennifer’s Body (2009)

Demon possession, devilish cheerleaders, and Satanic rock stars are all on the chopping block with this horror comedy from the production team behind Juno. Screenwriter Diablo Cody provides the script, with producing duties handled by Jason Reitman and Dan Dubiecki. The story centers on an impish high-school student (Amanda Seyfried) who has to protect her town against her best friend, Jennifer (Megan Fox), who after being bedeviled by an evil rock band, develops a taste for human flesh. Girlfight’s Karyn Kusama directs the Fox Atomic production.

I had such low expectations for this film that it turned out to be better than I imagined it to be. But lets not get carried away, it is very average. Megan Fox has yet to prove that she can act in this and is merely an object for display – which to her credit she does well. It’s left to Amanda Seyfried to do ‘the acting’ which is okay, but I like her anyway.

What makes this worth watching? Well there is a certain scene with Seyfried and Fox that you wouldn’t want to miss if you know what I mean! Aside from that your not missing much by not seeing it.
