About Jennifer's Body
- Year Released:
- 2K DCP
- Directed by
A deceptively complicated story of friendship, love, and loss wrapped in a sharply written horror-comedy package, Jennifer's Body—overlooked when released—has been enjoying a rightly deserved comeback as a cult classic. Jennifer (Megan Fox) and Anita (Amanda Seyfried) are best friends whose already tense relationship is turned upside down after Jennifer's murder and rebirth as a soul-sucking succubus. Written by Academy Award winner Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult, Tully) and directed by the acclaimed Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, The Invitation, Destroyer), Jennifer's Body is a whip smart and skewering look at empowerment, gender roles, and accountability. Contains sexual assault and explicit violence.
"A forgotten feminist cult classic." — Constance Grady, Vox
"[The] screenplay brings to this material a certain edge, a kind of gleeful relish, that's uncompromising. This isn't your assembly-line teen horror thriller. " — Roger Ebert, RogerEbert.com
"Playful pop-culture ingenuity with a healthy shot of feminist anger" — A.O. Scott, The New York Times
