About this event


		We Really Like Her: JENNIFER'S BODY (2009) image

This October, we've got a craving for women-directed horror and we're satisfying it with a screening of the shockingly mis-marketed horror comedy Jennifer's Body (2009)!

Written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) and directed by Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, Destroyer), Jennifer's Body follows cheerleader Jennifer Check (a perfectly cast Megan Fox) and her bespectacled BFF, Anita "Needy Lesnicki (Amanda Seyfried). After a night out with indie band Low Shoulder (lead by an especially emo Adam Brody), Jennifer starts thirsting for boy blood, leaving a nervous Needy wondering if her childhood pal has been possessed and, moreover, if her boyfriend Chip (Johnny Simmons) is next on her hit list.

Deemed a box-office failure upon its initial release (which included a totally gross marketing campaign that focused solely on its star's sex appeal), Jennifer's Body has rightfully been reclaimed as a queer cult classic. Twisting teen slasher tropes into a killer commentary on toxic friendships, consent and society's fear of women's sexuality, it is a film that absolutely deserves a second look — and not just because of that infamous makeout scene (which, yes, is still pretty hot).

So grab your prom dress and your pom-poms and join us in cheering on Jennifer, Needy, Diablo and Karyn this Halloween. We'll make sure the Revue makes the popcorn *extra salty* for you. <3 - EMILY GAGNE + DANITA STEINBERG, Co-Hosts of We Really Like Her!
