Diablo Cody's next movie project after her award-winning Juno is Jennifer's Body, a "horror-comedy" starring Megan Fox as a hot demon girl with a thirst for murdering boys. The trailer will appear before screenings of Bruno this weekend, but the filmmakers were reportedly not too psyched about the theatrical trailer and have put a red-band trailer online for all to ogle.
In some ways, it's cool that this is a female-led horror movie, but then again, I have to wonder how much of a female audience this will attract. It's a horror movie centered around a young hot chick — and basically centered around the fact that she's hot (so she can more easily prey upon unsuspecting smitten boys). It is cute to see Adam Brody and Amanda Seyfried, but I am starting to feel a bit of Megan Fox fatigue these days. And aside from a line or two here or there, I don't see too much comedy in this "horror-comedy" but maybe the movie will offer up more gems when it opens Sept. 18.
