From the mind of Diablo Cody (who wrote the indie-success "Juno") comes the teen-horror film "Jennifer’s Body," starring "Transformers" hottie Megan Fox. The film sees Fox swap running from giant robots to preying on horny high school boys as a demon-possessed cheerleader.
Before the inevitable “safe” trailer for "Jennifer’s Body" comes out, the film’s writer (Cody), director (Karyn Kusama) and producer (Jason Reitman) sent Shock Till You Drop the exclusive red band trailer to show off the TRUE nature of the movie. Cody, Kusama and Reitman also sent the following little FYI note along with the exclusive:
“Fox is putting a trailer of Jennifer’s Body in front of Bruno this Friday. Great, right? Only problem is it’s not our trailer. It’s kind of a straight horror preview and while we’re sure it’ll appeal to many of you, we wanted to make sure you guys got to see our cut… Lets call it the “filmmaker’s cut”. We think it captures the comedy and scares of the horror films we grew up on - a kind of nostalgia for when horror films were fun. Can’t wait to show you the whole film… In the meantime, here’s the red band trailer we wanted our fans to see.”
- Karyn, Diablo, and Jason
"Jennifer's Body" tells the story of a seemingly-perfect cheerleader whose life is thrown into disarray when she gets possessed by a demon, begins eating boys in her small town, then faces off against her best friend and the Satan-worshipping band that made her evil.
It hits theaters September 18.
