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

Jennifer's surname 'Check' was initially intended only to be a place holder name. It comes from writer Diablo Cody using the phrase 'check' to express the filling of the various required roles, e.g "Jennifer - check, Needy - check" and so on. The name was never changed and features in the final film. See more »

Goofs

Nikolai says, as the band is about to perform the ritual: "We got a waxing moon. Perfection." Then we get cut to a shot of a moon that's visibly shrinking, while waxing means growing moon. See more »

Jennifer's body is one of those movies that you probably will either love or hate. I on the other hand prefer to love this movie.

Jennifer Check is the one girl in school who is drop dead beautiful. She gets mixed up with a band called Low Shoulder and they are Satan worshipers. They offer her soul for fame and fortune but it ends up turning her into a succubus. Her best friend Needy is the one to realize something is wrong and decides to stop her.

Adam Brody who plays Nikolai, the lead singer of Low Shoulder is a great casting choice. Know for being the hilarious Seth in the O.C, he does good at still being comedic yet a dangerous killer. Megan Fox who in real life is drop dead beautiful plays a very good female killer. Amanda S. as well has a great talent.
