11:30pm - Friday, Oct 14, 2022
In director Karyn Kusama's (GIRLFIGHT, AEON FLUX) 2009 cult horror-comedy JENNIFER'S BODY, Megan Fox stars as newly-possessed hottie high-school cheerleader turned succubus Jennifer, who specializes in killing her male classmates. While this she-demon satisfies her appetite for human flesh with the school's male population, her nerdy friend, the aptly named Needy (Amanda Seyfried), learns what's happening, and vows to put an end to the carnage. Featuring the sharp, funny, and clever dialogue of Oscar-winning scribe Diablo Cody (JUNO), JENNIFER'S BODY is a perfect fit into the Rio Theatre's Friday Late Night Movie series on October 14. Also starring Adam Brody, J.K. Simmons, Amy Sedaris, Chris Pratt, Johnny Simmons.
"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." (Polygon)
"Unfairly maligned upon its initial release, Jennifer's Body proves to be a pitch-perfect blend of horror and comedy." (Horror Queens Podcast)
"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." (Film Companion)
