Think Mean Girls making out with Teen Wolf on the set of The Faculty. Or something.

With women calling the shots on this production, I'm sure we're supposed to think this is empowerment, but I'm not sure this is what feminism is really about.

Diablo Cody and director Karyn Kusama seem less interested in cheap scares than in something more substantive: exploring the purgatorial existence of teens caught between being kids and adults.

The film is not without merit and has more corpses and red corpuscles than the anaemic Twilight series of vampire flicks.

By tapping in to the same vein of 'hormonal horror' as the excellent 'Ginger Snaps', this offers a witty, subversive look at the darker side of teen friendship.

November 6, 2009
Jennifer's Body has more to say about the dynamics of teenaged female friendship, sexual power games and the trials of adolescence than many a more self-consciously worthy film.

A genre high-school horror flick with a satirical edge.

Funny, sexy, cool and destined to become a cult classic.

Likely to strike a chord with the turbulent teens Cody captures so well, this vividly lurid tale has cult movie written all over it and may well enjoy a healthy afterlife if it stiffs at the cinema.

Not likely to wow die-hard gore fans or anyone looking for the originality and wit of Juno, but it won't break your heart like, well, Jar Jar Binks. It's just hot, bloody, dirty, disposable fun for a Saturday night.

While George A Romero certainly won't be losing any sleep, failsafe ingredients - gore, guts and hotties making out with each other - make this a movie bound to appeal to teenagers everywhere.

[Diablo Cody's] salty dialogue is the saving grace of Jennifer's Body, a gleeful, old-fashioned mix of gore and giggles that feels awfully pleased with itself.

Occasionally aimless direction is saved by a witty script from Diablo Cody.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Fox is fun as a demonic harpy, but sadly the meeting of Hollywood's two rock'n'roll queens is closer to safe studio product than slash-and-burn envelope-pusher.

An enjoyable teen horror with terrific performances and a nice line in jet-black humour thanks to Diablo Cody's excellent script.

Shadows on the Wall
November 5, 2009
A snappy script and a lively approach to the genre make this a gleefully grisly teen horror movie thoroughly entertaining

Eye for Film
November 4, 2009
Occupying similar territory to Heathers (1988), Ginger Snaps (2000) and Teeth (2007), Karyn Kusama's film is sharp, witty and diabolically funny
Maitland McDonagh
Horror Hacker
November 3, 2009
It's more clever than funny ha-ha, and has a handful of seriously creepy moments ... the movie a smarty-pants horror buff cooks up while ticking off grade-Z slasher clichés.
