Megan Fox has Demonic Hunger in ‘Jennifer’s Body’
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on August 29, 2009
Her role in Transformers may have been responsible for siring the somewhat dubious experience of being sat in a cinema where the entire male section of the audience were undergoing a simultaneous swelling of the groinal region, but one certainly can’t hold that against Megan Fox.
And her star looks only set to continue its recent ascent with Jennifer’s Body, a high school horror comedy from the pen of Oscar-winning Juno writer Diablo Cody, in which Fox’s eponymous cheerleader is sacrificed by Adam Brody’s wannabe rock star Nikolai Wolf as part of his bid to land the most Faustian of record deals.
However, the blood-letting all goes a bit awry and Jennifer begins chowing down on her fellow
students in order to glut her demonic hunger. Directed by Girlfight and Æon Flux helmer Karyn Kusama, and co-starring Amanda Seyfried as “Needy” Lesnicky and Johnny Simmons as Chip Dove (sharing a character name with Matthew Modine’s rapist jock in Hotel New Hampshire), Jennifer’s Body appears an attempt to balance the kind of dark satire of high school society seen in Michael Lehmann’s Heathers with some outright genre thrills. Although whether the shocks contained within the movie itself can measure up to the horror of a soundtrack album featuring such haircut indie guitar goons as Black Kids, White Lies and Panic at the Disco remains to be seen.
