Did you just fucking shoot me?!
A classic whodunnit but with a unique spin that never takes itself seriously. Full of subtle laughs with clever character development, dialogue and performances that just steadily get more and more infectious as these young group of people who love to party hard try to lie and scheme their way for sole survival without a second thought, yet ultimately leads to some of their downfall. Not to the mention the mysterious killer at large lurking in plain sight! 👀
Really dug the score, while the film is settled in with it's somewhat tongue-in-cheek theme, the score and clever use of camera work in the dark it isn't afraid to remind you that this is still a horror movie, and the idea of potentially being followed by a killer in the dark at a mansion during a hurricane no less who could be one of your friends is a little thought-provoking. I'd be ready to dropkick any motherfucker who comes near my hiding place!
The teenager undertones surrounding the title Bodies Bodies Bodies could mean a few things and I like how it's interpreted in the story with our characters. Hot gossip and twists are revealed throughout regarding who's fucked who and who wants to fuck who and the jealousy, hidden motives and over the top teenage drama with their selfish and self-absorbed behaviour just looking for a body count and will do anything to lie their way through whilst drenched in blood reeking of their own stupidity just hit another mark I wasn't expecting. It owns it's ridiculous nature all for the better. To the point you're invested in everyone's claim right up until the closing moments.
Bodies Bodies Bodies is so entertaining and while not overly scary, delivers all the satisfying bloody moments you might be looking for. Pokes fun at the rich youth of today as well trigger words we learn to describe toxic people like "narcissist" or "gaslighting" to try and sound smart. When in some cases, it just isn't that deep. Fast moving and chaotic, with a ton of flavour with its clever writing and ambitious approach on the social status quo. Lastly the main end twist is hilariously amazing and honestly I think a first I've ever seen 😂 which compliments everything that came before beautifully. Not horror movie of the year, but Bodies Bodies Bodies is absolutely memorable that's ripe for a positive fan following. 🖤
