Movie Info

It's a couple nights before Christmas and the three girls are bored out of their minds, sitting at Mel's parents house. As she is wont to do, Cali suggests they go out and have some fun. Her uncle owns a mansion one town over and happens to be out of town for the holiday. Better yet, he's given her permission to party there. Despite Holly's reservations, the girls head out. It's only after hours of partying and taking advantage of the home's many amenities that the girls discover Cali has lied to them. This is not her uncle's house. It belongs to a family that Cali used to babysit for. And it becomes quite clear that permission was certainly never granted to party there. Holly and Mel, infuriated with Cali, immediately head for the door. Unfortunately, before they can leave, the groundskeeper of the estate arrives. The girls attempt to flee, but wind up running into him on their way out. An altercation follows and in a freak accident, the girls push him down the stairs. He falls awkwardly, breaking his neck and ultimately dying. For the remainder of the film, we watch the girls slowly unravel as they decide what to do about the dead body in the living room. But covering their tracks might mean adding to the body count...

  • A shoestring house-of-horrors exercise that just sort of, well, exists, with no real purpose or artistic vision driving it forward.

  • "Body" may not be the kind of modern-day B-movie that wins awards, but it does exactly what it sets out to, and that's a fair amount. So go ahead: see this film for yourself. You won't know what hit you.

  • Mishaps and conflicts ensue, some scarier and more credible than others, and some just plain irritating.

  • On the surface a typical exercise in horror-film cliché, Body turns out to be a far more thought-provoking creature, a parable of adulthood and a stinging indictment of white-girl privilege.

  • The film is well-acted, slickly made on a shoestring budget, and blessedly efficient, with a runtime that inches just past the one-hour mark, credits included. It's also nearly devoid of surprises ...

  • An uninspired thriller that would barely squeak past an hour's length without its drawn-out final credits.

    I never like to think of what a movie could have been, but it is hard not to do so when you see an uninspired film like this that, despite a few good cynical moments, is generally superficial in its ambitions and hardly manages to be tense, engaging or anything beyond cliched.
