Let’s take a peek at Jennifer’s Body, shall we? The film is slated for a September 18 release date, a week after Sorority Row hits theaters.
The film is described as a horror comedy starring Megan Fox as Jennifer, notable for her recent performance in Transformers 2, and co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Adam Brody. This is a veritable list of young actors and actresses to please the teenage audience. But with an R rating, will Jennifer’s Body pull in many teens?
From what I’ve seen in the movie theaters of late, I’d say an emphatic YES. And with Diablo Cody writing the script (works also include Juno, the HBO dark comedy The United States of Tara, and a column in Entertainment Weekly), it looks like Jennifer’s Body has its work cut out for it. Expect quirky dialogue and a lot of blackly humorous scenes, with hopefully a lot of violence in between.
Taken from IMDB, here’s the plot:
A newly possessed cheerleader turns into a killer who specializes in offing her male classmates. Can her best friend put an end to the horror?
I don’t know. I guess I’ll have to see the movie. Unfortunately, this plot summary is short and sweet with just a little bit of ambiguity. But it sounds alright; it’s not something I’m overly excited about, but Juno was good, right?
Megan Fox definitely has the persona and the looks to pull off her sexy character, but what I’m really interested in is how the film carries out its plot. This could go either way, either excelling at its simplistic story or devolving into a mindless hack n’ slash flick.
The only way to find out for sure how Jennifer’s Body turns out is to hit the theaters September 18. There’s not too much else playing in the way of horror, so get a full viewing of Jennifer’s Body and see if you enjoy.
