Jennifer's Body (with director Karyn Kusama in person!)

Co-presented by Blumhouse

“In this movie, hell is actually two girls, embroiled in the fiendish complexity of a deep female friendship. The fact that one of them is a boy-eating demon is, believe it or not, secondary.” – Mary Pols, Time Magazine

Karyn Kusama’s Jennifer’s Body stands as one of the aughts most fun horror outings, and a strong exploration of female empowerment and sexuality. Inspired by the high school horror comedies of the 80s, the film concerns the relationship between teenage besties (Megan Fox and the luminously vulnerable Amanda Seyfried), one of whom is possessed by a demon after partying with an emo rock band. Armed with a crackling Diablo Cody script and rife with quotables, Kusama brings a pitch-perfect sense of direction, knowing just when to back off the laughs and bring on the suspense, violence, and horror. Smart, sexy, and scary as hell, Jennifer’s Body is a future cult classic and well deserving of your re-inspection.

Dir. Karyn Kusama, 2009, 35mm, 102 min.
