In this campy teen horror, small-town cheerleader Jennifer (Megan Fox) is possessed by a bloodthirsty demon after a satanic ritual goes awry. As she begins picking off boys at her high school, it is up to her best friend Needy (Amanda Seyfried) to stop the carnage. Once unfairly maligned by critics and audiences, Jennifer’s Body has since been reclaimed as a certified cult classic, bolstered by Diablo Cody’s quick-fire dialogue and Karyn Kusama’s unexpectedly subversive direction.

About The Lazy Girls Film Club
The Lazy Girls Film Club seeks to shine a light on unconventional women throughout cinema history, with a particular focus on representations of ‘aimless womanhood’. While depictions of men as drifters, slackers, and underdogs have long been romanticised and celebrated, comparable female characters are often overlooked and undervalued. Lazy Girls aims to provide an open and inclusive space to explore the compelling world of alienated, frustrated, complicated women in film.
