JENNIFER’S BODY
2009, 20th Century Fox, 102 min, Dir: Karyn Kusama

Writer Diablo Cody and director Karyn Kusama collaborated on what might be the most incredible high school horror film ever made. Anita "Needy" Lesnicki (Amanda Seyfried) is a withdrawn high schooler whose best friend Jennifer (Megan Fox) is a popular cheerleader. Despite having nothing in common, the two have been friends forever and continue to hang out despite objections from all levels of the school social hierarchy. The two head out one night to a dive bar to catch an indie rock show, but when the gig goes tragically wrong, Jennifer leaves with the band. Later that night, Jennifer reappears in Needy’s kitchen covered in blood and hungry with more than just the munchies. Needy suspects there might be something wrong with her friend beyond raging teenage hormones, but who is going to believe the word of a nerd over one of the most popular girls at school? And just what is wrong with Jennifer’s body?
