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

Its a mixed up film with some really great silly ideas. Love or hate Cody's writing its undeniable that she's got a lot of flair.
It's definitely not the soft porn B fest that people seem to assume. Unless soft porn scenes typically include a curious array of woodland animals as bystanders.
When the... More dialogue is great its really great.. but about 40% probably could have been replaced with less crafted speak, it doesn't always feel natural.
The title I think is making a point (in codys voice) "hey isn't it f**ed up how people are so freaked out by the idea of directly referencing female sexuality, even though even though the most banal advertising constantly bombards us with it?" - and the low box office takes would seem to prove that point well!
ps - co star Amanda Seyfried kicks Fox's ass in the hottie stakes, despite the best efforts to make her otherwise!Hide

This movie tried to be too many things in my opinion. Diablo Cody tries to get in lots of quirky dialogue but a lot of it feels forced instead of actually what the kids might say. It's not a horror movie either, so tries only for a couple of scenes to get a response. Then moves on to the next attempt at picking a genre for the movie. The movie needed to pick one thing and do it well... End of the day though, people will watch it for Megan Fox.
