Jennifers Body seeps into your heart. Its commentary is moving and its comedy is witty and memorable. Jennifers Body is a poignant exploration of reclaiming your power, discovering yourself, and fighting back

Episode 51: Jennifer's Body / One Cut of the Dead / Nosferatu the Vampyre

It's bleakly funny - campy and witty, like screenwriter Diablo Cody's previous hit Juno, but with gruesome turns that make it a perfect spooky season watch.

I did not love Jennifer's Body. It's very "almost."

Confusion between friendship and love, the relationship between desire and fear, and bold, feminist strides. All of this was wrapped up in a fun, tense, and poignant story.

Unfairly maligned upon its initial release, Jennifer's Body proves to be a pitch-perfect blend of horror and comedy.

It's not just a feminist thumbs down, it's like a... movie thumbs down.

The film doesn't have a large enough body count for a slasher, not enough high school angst for a teen dramedy, and not enough debauchery for exploitation.

Like an attention-seeking teenager, Jennifer's Body desperately wants to be cool. But the strain shows, which is decidedly uncool.

What I love about this movie is, surprisingly, that Megan Fox is excellent.

I'm pleased to report that Jennifer's Body was exactly the delightfully campy feminist black comedy I thought it would be - and also a wonderful snapshot of 2009 high school life.

Kusama blends Cody's knowledge of teen movies, the horror genre, and rape-revenge tales into a piece that proves to be as emotionally realistic as it is self-aware.

Cody only subverts the genre after covering all her bases with a good story, and she seems to know her stuff.

Unfortunately, Jennifer's Body is a horror movie, and the inevitable girlfright devolves into senseless bloodbath, which doesn't suit the talents of either Cody or Kusama.

As Jennifer rampages the town, lame digs at pop culture targets such as Miley Cyrus and Aquamarine ensue, leaving us to wonder how much time Cody spent on her script once she came up with its first line.

Not without its problems, but it is an enjoyable romp.

[T]his film feels more like a comedy than it does a contemporary horror movie, and I'm sure those who might end up liking Jennifer's Body, will appreciate the humor over the scares/gore.

The real shame is that, devoid of proper context, the dialogue now really does seem - as the Cody- haters contend - like little more than a series of unattached, curled-lip one-liners.

While "Jennifer's Body" doesn't always connect -- particularly when it tries to build horror-movie tension -- it's still an obvious labor of movie-geek love.

But while the movie is almost always pleasing, it never develops very much momentum.
