Storyline

Nerdy, reserved bookworm Needy Lesnicki, and arrogant, conceited cheerleader Jennifer Check 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 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

In a February 2016 interview with the New York Times, while trying to illustrate how completely the studio's (all-male) marketing department misunderstood the point of this movie, director Karyn Kusama recalled that one of their marketing ideas was for Megan Fox to do live chats with amateur porn sites. Kusama said that she begged them to not even mention the idea to Fox because "she will become so dispirited....It was crushing." See more »

Black comedy mixes well with horror
2 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Black comedy and horror can be a combustible combination if a director doesn't have a grasp on the tone and Karyn Kusama has enough command of this cynical material to pull it off. Jennifer's Body is above all a black comedy, but it's wisely played relatively straight and the cinematography, mood and music are all bathed in horror. It mines its comedy from taking its genre angle seriously and even though this material about a demon high school brat and a hipster band with a deal with Satan is ridiculous - it's consistently entertaining. Karyn Kusama exploits the limited range of Megan Fox's abilities and pulls a performance out of her that completely works. While she obviously has the looks for the part, her comedic timing is spot on and even though Jennifer isn't the most complex character, Fox seems to have a blast playing this demon bitch. While the occasional overwritten bit of stylized dialogue hits with a thud, most of the film is witty and a hell of a lot better than its reputation.
