"Bodies Bodies Bodies" is a horror-comedy. It's also a movie about what happens to society when trust evaporates. The film does everything a social satire should do -- it entertains, it makes you laugh, often uncomfortably, and it cuts, often literally. Most importantly, it refuses to leave your mind, long after you see it.
I've been thinking about "Bodies Bodies Bodies" since I saw it on August 15th (an entire month ago)! In addition to a standout performance by Rachel Sennott, the film offers twists, turns, and an amazing ending -- plus some of the funniest dialogue I've heard this year.
The filmmakers commit to the journey, which makes it easy for you to do it, too. As an audience member, you are just as involved in the murder mystery / fight for survival as the characters are, even though you kind of hate the characters.
But the movie isn't a hate watch, and to me, that's what makes it great.
About halfway (maybe two-thirds of the way) through, you start to get what director Halina Reijn is going for. Once you do, you really start to feel for the Gen-Z caricatures, as if they're young people you know.
By the end of the movie, you will be asking questions -- and worrying -- about society.
The film is smart and it rewards smart viewers.
So, what are you waiting for? Go watch it! And let me know what you think.
