JENNIFER'S BODY - is out of scary shape! Rating: C-plus. (Based on advance VIP press preview)

Monday 9/14. This 102-min horror film was screen-written by Diablo Cody(JUNO) and directed by Karyn Kusama(AEON FLUX). From the previews/trailers, I was expecting to be scared out of my skin - BUT, alas, I was disappointed because there was not enough scary scenes/moments! Instead, there were blood and gore aplenty. JENNIFER'S BODY was written as a metaphor about teen girls grappling with their new found budding sexuality and its inherent power over young men. Jennifer has a lusciously 'SALTY' body and she is HUNGRY(figuratively and literally) for boys!!! Mmmm - yum-yum!!! There were a few steamy sapphic moments to satisfy those movie-goers that are yearning some fem-on-fem action. Amanda Seyfried stole the movie w/ her compelling performance. Editing and directing = choppy, Set-design and Cinematography = above-average. Plot = average. Lines/zingers = funny. VERDICT: Horror fans and fans of A.S., Megan Fox and Diablo Cody - MUST SEE! NOT kids/family-friendly.

Hilarious

I went into this movie with the LOWEST of expectations... It surprisingly kept me laughing the whole time. I'd say it's 95% comedy with 5% blood & gore. Not really a "horror" flick as far as I'm concerned.

The movie was awesome. Everything about it. Megan Fox was great in it as the rest of the team. Clever, funny, scary, sexy, emotional. Great job everyone involved.

I honestly was expecting a stupid horror movie with bad acting....but THIS movie is great!!! If you liked Idle Hands with Jessica Alba (1999), you will LOVE THIS! I think 75% of bad reviews for all movies are from people who aren't in the right mood during the movie or have way too high of an expectation. Like this movie, Jennifer's Body, I think they had way too high expectations and was expecting this to be a horror film like Halloween or Saw, don't expect that, expect a COMEDY-HORROR type of film, and most of all HANG LOOSE AND RELAX!

Jennifer's Body-For Once Men Are The Victims!!!

As a female horror fan, I must say that this is a start. It may not be the perfect horror film, but as a horror fan I felt I had to go see it. Men are the victims in the film but you will see why. I especially loved the very end because it completed the film and I felt satisfied. This film was funnier than it was scary, but it was very entertaining so I think it's worth watching. People take horror films too seriously! You can't compare this to Alfred Hitchcock or Stephen King or Japanese original horror films! If you do, of course you will be disappointed. See it for fun that's all.
