Bodies Bodies Bodies combines comedy with horror

Director Halina Reijn’s latest comedy-horror film “Bodies Bodies Bodies” is filled with twists and turns that will leave viewers speechless. 

The movie begins with the main character Sophie (Amandla Stenberg) going to visit her friends, who she hasn’t seen since she had been in rehab. 

It then proceeds to show Sophie bringing her current girlfriend Bee (Maria Bakalova) to meet her friends at a party. The party is hosted by Sophie’s old friend David (Pete Davidson) at his remote family mansion. While some friends seem happy to see her, others don’t. 

As the tension rises, Sophie and her friends decide to play the game “bodies, bodies, bodies” to squash it. 

This game involves there being a killer. Once the lights go out, the person who is the killer has to choose their victim. 

Once they have chosen their victim, you flip the lights on and yell “bodies bodies bodies,” and everyone has to try and guess who the killer is. 

However, things take a grim turn, as real murder victims begin turning up. Everyone starts turning on each other, trying to figure out who the murderer is. 

As bodies keep being found, things begin to connect and the ending will leave viewers shocked. 

Along with a believable plot, the acting was great. Most actors looked genuinely scared.

Generally, the film was well structured with the suspense gradually growing.

“Bodies Bodies Bodies” is a gory movie, but it wasn’t to the point where you would want to stop watching it; there was just the right amount of it. 

Each character had distinct traits, which benefited the movie by making it funnier. 

It also made references to popular culture and vernacular such as “gaslight and ally,” which probably appeal to younger audiences. 

This film is overall a must-see and will have you hooked from beginning to end – it’s funny, not too scary, and just the right amount of drama for you to be left wanting more.
