Storyline

Nerdy reserved bookworm Needy, and arrogant, conceited cheerleader Jennifer are best friends, though they share little in common. They share even less in common when Jennifer mysteriously gains an appetite for human blood after a disastrous fire at a local bar. As Needy's male classmates are steadily killed off in gruesome attacks, the young girl must uncover the truth behind her friend's transformation and find a way to stop the bloodthirsty rampage before it reaches her own boyfriend Chip. Written by The Massie Twins

Trivia

The demon who possesses Jennifer Check (Megan Fox's character) closely resembles a succubus (plural succubi), from Jewish, Christian, and Sumerian mythology/theology. It is said that succubi seduce men, and fornicate with them until they are "drained" (in the movie, getting "drained" could mean getting drained of blood instead of semen). Some possible examples of succubi are Lilitu (from Sumerian mythology), Lilin, and Lilith (both from Jewish theology). See more »

This film was doomed from the moment diablo cody touched her keyboard
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of, if not the worst film I've ever seen.Not only does it not fit into any sort of relative "genre" (its not a horror film, it's not a teen drama, its not a comedy, but tries to be all of this and more) but it's loaded with terrible scripted dialogue that attempts to be "cutting edge" by inventing hip slang that is too embarrassing for me to mention in this review, the plot makes no sense whatsoever and the characters are all annoying in their own way. There is no possession in this movie. There is no significance to the opening scenes whatsoever because they are never explained or touched upon again, most of the gore happens off camera and the lame girl on girl scene from the trailer is the only erotic aspect of the whole film, so if you think you're gonna see any nudity at all your mistaken. Even the awkward sex scene is ruined by bad dialogue and corny jokes.

I've never hated a film as much as I hate "Jennifer's Body" the board will try to convince you that its "hip" and has "memorable dialogue" (memorable like herpes, it will irritate you for the rest of your life, disappearing when you forget it but then come back with a vengeance when you're reminded of it by some loser who quotes it thinking its funny) or that the film is some sort of deeper metaphor, but in reality is a terribly written, horribly edited film that was supposed to be released around Halloween, but was pushed ahead in an attempt to make its money back because the studio realized it couldn't contend with the rest of the horror flicks coming out near the end of this month.

If you want to know what the experience of this film is like, take an issue of whatever teen pop magazine is popular nowadays (do they still publish tiger beat?) feed your dog some laxatives, have it squat on said magazine and beat yourself in the face with it for an hour and a half.

Diablo Cody is nothing more than a human interest story with ego issues. Wow, a stripper who can write. I've lost interest already...

And in case your wondering how she won an Oscar if she is such a terrible writer, keep in mind 3-6 mafia has an Oscar too (remember "Hard Out Here for a Pimp"?) her name is Diablo because her writing is a sin to the film industry
