Jennifer's Body (2009)

Director: Karyn Kusama. Cast: Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Simmons, Adam Brody, J.K. Simmons, Lance Henriksen. 102 min. Rated R. Horror/Comedy.

Girl goes on a murderous rampage, tearing a testosterone-fueled teenage dominance to pieces. I'm always suspicious of movies that are specifically written for a certain actor/actress (in this case, Megan Fox), but since Diablo Cody (Juno) is the writer, the filmmakers are able to get away with it ("The Big Dance is going to be an all-you-can-eat boy buffet!"). There are some vague references to 9/11, but the connection to the subject matter is beyond me. The ending definitely leaves room for a sequel. For a better rendering of the subject, I recommend Teeth.
