Satanic rituals, demonic transferences, thriving off of human blood to stay full; “Jennifer’s Body” is not really what I expected.
Why did Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried take on a movie like this? I mean, from their hit movies “Transformers” and “Mamma Mia” to a movie line about a girl killing boys?
Maybe this movie will be big because of that, but I wasn’t too impressed. It’s the typical movie where I knew how it ended. I can’t deny the great acting from the two young stars, but this is not the type of movie I see them doing.
Fox plays Jennifer Check, the girl everyone wants to be friends with. Seyfried plays Jennifer’s best friend, Needy Lesnicky. After a night out to a tavern, Jennifer goes with a mysterious band and is used for a satanic ritual. Next thing Needy knows, Jennifer is killing their school’s boys for their blood to stay full, healthy, and beautiful.
The graphics are okay, the gore is not bad, but the general storyline was pretty lame. The good girl into a demonic killer reminds me of a “Carrie”/”The Exorcist” mix.
Not to mention what happens at the end; I wasn’t expecting what happens, I’ll admit, but it still follows the storyline of a lot of horror movies. I want something new that I didn’t see coming. I did like how it was put together though because it made me ask myself questions like, “How’d this happen?”
I liked the actors in this movie so I figured I’d take a risk and go see this one, as I did with “Whiteout,” but I didn’t have the same reaction. It’s a typical horror movie, but with more sexual innuendos. If you like that mix, the movie is all yours.
