Jennifer’s Body: The Sexiest Horror Movie of All Time

Most Sexiest Horror Movie of All Time

Jennifer's Body is a 2009 American comedy horror film written by Diablo Cody and directed by Karyn Kusama. The film stars Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Simmons, and Adam Brody. Fox portrays a demonically possessed high school girl who kills her male classmates, with her best friend striving to stop her. The film premiered at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival and was released in the United States and Canada on September 18, 2009. As a tie-in to the film, Boom! Studios produced Jennifer's Body graphic novel, released in August 2009.

Working with Cody again following their collaborative efforts on the film Juno, Jason Reitman stated he and his producers "want to make unusual films". Cody said she wanted the film to speak to female empowerment and explore the complex relationships between best friends.

The film had a lackluster performance at the North American box office, making $2.8 million on its opening day and $6.8 million on its opening weekend, received mixed reviews, with its dialogue, emotional resonance, and performances being praised, while the narrative and uneven tone were targets for criticism. In the wake of the Me Too movement, the film has been appreciated as a feminist horror film and as a cult film.

‘Megan Fox as a man-eater’ is not just a tabloid-selling headline but is also the USP of ‘Jennifer’s Body. The film is every guy’s fantasy come true. Fox’s character Jennifer dies and returns from the dead with an evil agenda. She seduces guys and kills them after having sexual intercourse with them. The film is a low-brow sex thriller whose only purpose is to titillate the audience with suggestive images and well Jennifer’s body. And it works perfectly well for you if you are not looking for something more than that. Megan Fox is effortless in her role, but naturally. It was an official selection at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival which makes one wonder if the director was aiming at something higher than just providing cheap thrills. Whatever the intention was it clearly didn’t work out. All that stays with you is Megan Fox making weird (suggestive) faces and of course her kissing Amanda Seyfried.
