Jennifer's Body

Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno) presents her sophomore effort with Megan Fox as a possessed, murderous cheerleader.

Jennifer is a small town high school hottie possessed by a demon. This fair beauty becomes a pale and sickly creature, taking aim at the gushing guys who never stood a chance. They take on new luster in the light of Jennifer's insatiable appetite. As the death toll rises only her best friend (Amanda Seyfried from Mamma Mia!) can stop her. 

Director Karyn Kusama was lauded to the skies for 2000's Girlfight but has since done little of note. She won't get a better chance to regain her relevance than working with one of Hollywood's biggest up and comers in Cody.

This high school horror romp tackles its bad-girl-gone-really-bad premise with eye-rolling obviousness and, fatally, a near-total absence of real scares.

The movie deserves -- and is likely to win -- a devoted cult following, despite its flaws.

It's not art, it's not “Juno,” it's not “Girlfight,” for that matter, but as a movie about a flesh-eating cheerleader, it's better than it has to be.

Not a bad idea, but it's let down by an odd mix of humour and horror that fails to entertain.

Diablo Cody's glib teen-hip dialogue mostly feels like self-conscious splatter over a sorely lackluster scare flick.

A campy pastiche of horror and high-school movie cliches, the film only rises above standard-issue scare fare by dint of Cody's sneaky sense of humor.
