1. Jennifer's Body Released:18thth September, 2009 Directed by: Karyn Kusama Cast: Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Simmons, J.K. Simmons, Amy Sedaris, Adam Brody Genre:Comedy,Horror Trailer:Click Here When small town high school student Jennifer (Megan Fox) is possessed by a hungry demon, she transitions from being âhigh school evilâ - gorgeous (and doesnât she know it), stuck up and ultra-attitudinal - to the real deal: evil/evil. The glittering beauty becomes a pale and sickly creature jonesing for a meaty snack, and guys who never stood a chance with the heartless babe, take on new luster in the light of her insatiable appetite.
