BODIES BODIES BODIES

The picture manages to stand out by more closely adhering to a youthful, soapy drama than to the rules of the horror genre.


On the surface Bodies Bodies Bodies is just another slasherfilm with a bunch of young people stranded in a remote villa during a nightly hurricane, with one of them likely to be the killer that picks them off one by one.


Yet the picture manages to stand out by more closely adhering to a youthful, soapy drama than to the rules of the horror genre. A lot of the credit for this goes to screenwriter Sarah DeLappe, who not only keeps you interested throughout with some nifty developments, but also because she manages to write dialogue that actually sounds like it could be plucked straight from the social media feeds of a twentysomething.


Director Halina Reijn and cinematographer Jasper Wolf complement this with eye-catching visuals, even if they sometimes fumble the chaotic suspense scenes, but there they can rely on a game cast including Amandla Stenberg , Maria Bakalova and Pete Davidson.


But the best thing about Bodies Bodies Bodies might be its twist ending, which is surprising and gleefully sardonic in all the right ways.
