Jennifer's Body

The reason I watched Jeennifer's Body (2009) was because A: Diablo Cody, writer of the brilliant Juno penned this one, B: Amanda Seyfried is in it, and it should be interesting seeing her sharring the screen with Megan Fox and C: it's one of those supposed-to-be-stupid-movies-that-aren't-that-stupid. And it's a horror, which I love. Honestly, the harsh critics need to lighten up; this was a great movie.
A nerdy teenager Needy (Amanda Seyfried) is best friends with the beautiful Jennifer (Megan Fox). Though this is hard to believe, the two are inseperable. But Needy notices that Jennifer has changed a bit, she is a lot more...evil. When she finds out that Jennifer is a posessed girl out to eat boys, Needy has to save herself, and her boyfriend, from becoming the victim.
Megan Fox is terrible beyond words in this. She plays Jennifer like she is sleep walking through her role, but somehow, her performance just doesn't matter. The sccript shines through. It is true to Diablo Cody's Juno roots, with the hip dialogue coming out (lesbigay? love it). And then there is Amanda Seyfried, who holds her own (not that there's much to hold) opposite Megan Fox. Jennifer's Body is by no means the best horror movie ever, but it is enjoyable...not once did I think about how much longer it was going to take. This is a must see for die hard fans of the horror genre.
