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.
A taut, smart and nasty little film that gets us to fall in love with it before really twisting the knife.
Body creaks along to a disappointingly bland conclusion, the mini-narratives never quite coalescing into either a series of salient character studies or a coherent critique of contemporary Polish mores.
With a generic title and a unsensational storyline, Body might not be remembered as readily as some other films, but that doesn't mean it's not worthy of standing out.
Body mines heaps of tension from Cali and Holly's moral back-and-forth-but their dilemma might have cut deeper with better, less predictable characterization.
Despite a couple of clever twists to keep the plot churning, the characters lack sufficient depth to generate sympathy.
Women's friendships in dangerous situations are not something we see a lot of onscreen. But this ends up not really being about the women at all.
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.
