Details About the Film

This film is part of the series Extra Credit

Oil and water childhood bestfriends Jennifer and Needy struggle to navigate high school after Jennifer unexpectedly develops a taste for male human flesh. What follows is a subversion of coming-of-age tropes tackling girl-on-girl hatred, #MeToo politics (years before the terminology was coined), and a meta-examination of the Megan Fox mythos. Mis-marketed during its initial release as Twilight for boys, Jennifer's Body tells the story of a queer-coded succubus cheerleader who isn't just high school evil.
