About this deal

Yet if this seems a moment of arresting intimacy and close connection, the effect is immediately undermined by a cut to the same pair in an SUV, deeply absorbed in their respective smartphones. Now that its theatrical run has ended, here are all the details of how and when you can stream and rent the movie. In April 2021, it was reported that Amandla Stenberg and Maria Bakalova were set to star in the film, while Pete Davidson and Myha'la Herrold were in talks to join the cast, with Halina Reijn now set to direct. Sophie (Stenberg) and her new girlfriend Bee (Maria Bakalova) travel along winding hillside roads to a hurricane party at a remote mansion hosted by Sophie’s best buddy David (Pete Davidson) and her coterie of rich friends. Bee, a working-class young woman from Eastern Europe, travels with her wealthy girlfriend Sophie to a " hurricane party" at a mansion owned by the family of David, Sophie's friend.

Gleiberman described the film as " And Then There Were None staged by John Cassavetes for the age of Instagram. Tad The Lost Explorer And The Curse Of The Mummy unravels at a breathless pace, contriving conflict between Tad and his crew before a pithy distillation of life lessons about friendship and self-sacrifice. White New York Times Critic Removes Social Media After Criticizing Amandla Stenberg in 'Bodies Bodies Bodies' ".How do you solve a problem like microplastics – tiny particles created for commercial use or broken down from discarded single-use items in the environment – and mitigate their impact on delicate marine ecosystems? Sure enough, for all the paranoia-inducing tensions, brutal recriminations and bloody body count of Bodies Bodies Bodies, it is also very funny, nailing with every perfectly pitched line of dialogue these characters’ vanity, viciousness and vapidity. As the industry has continued to fight to regain its feet after Covid, we’ve been treated to a mixed bag of belters during blockbuster season.

Focusing on working-class Bee as she struggles first to find her place in this dysfunctional coterie and then to survive the night, Reijn’s second feature (following Instinct, 2019) plays out as both parlour game and murder mystery.

Here, surgery is “the new sex” and self-mutilation is elevated to an orgiastic artform: a rush of blood to the head and loins that renders obsolete old-fashioned expressions of intimacy. Eileen Jones of Jacobin gave a negative review of the film, summarizing: "Like so many horror films attempting to be subversive, Bodies Bodies Bodies tries to satirize the upper class. Bodies Bodies Bodies has been described as a "satire on class and privilege, all mediated by new technology, the language of progressive politics and youth culture, and Gen Z identity itself". Her script brilliantly captures the vapidness of a self-absorbed generation, which lives and dies by social media and its own relentless self-promotion.

In many ways it’s very generic, and does occasionally descend into a flurry of online buzzwords, but the performances are memorable and the film does a good job of mocking the very generation it’s representing, and the perpetually online culture they’ve found themselves wrapped up in. Even the two nominal leads, Sophie (Stenberg) and Bee (Bakalova), are not being entirely truthful with everyone.

Meghan Currier was credited as the music supervisor for the film, which contains 15 credited songs from a wide variety of artists including Shygirl, Kilo Kish, Princess Nokia, Azealia Banks, Slayyyter and Tommy Genesis. A hurricane party at a remote mansion for a group of privileged friends turns deadly when a murder mystery game results in an actual body count. If one was looking for a quick and easy catch-all to represent the group, look no further than Jean Ralphio’s description of his sister in Parks and Recreation: “She’s the wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooorst!

She continued, "The only thing that really sets 'Bodies Bodies Bodies' apart is its place in the A24 hype machine, where it doubles as a 95-minute advertisement for cleavage and Charli XCX’s latest single. A biting new take on the slasher genre aimed at Millenials and Gen Z, Halina Reijn’s Bodies Bodies Bodies is a horror where the real threats are self-indulgence and Twitter buzzwords. Lurking paranoia, bloody murder and vicious accusations deliver the jump scares and barefaced lies bring the laughs in a horror comedy that confronts the fakery, mistrust and desperation of modern times. IndieWire said they “just love the idea that without wifi, we'd all descend into murder,” as if we didn't already know what kinda film to expect.

Reelgood is the most extensive streaming guide in the US and UK, with every TV show and movie available online. For the seven housemates decide to play ‘Bodies bodies bodies’, a variant on ‘Murder in the dark’ that always brings tensions and trust issues bubbling to the surface – but as a hurricane raging outside brings the lights and Wi-Fi down, and as one of their number turns up very literally dead with a bloody slash to the throat, the rest find this game brought to life, with a killer – or killers – in their midst, treachery at every turn, and the cadavers quickly piling high. When a group of rich 20-somethings plan a hurricane party at a remote family mansion, a party game turns deadly in this fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends, and one party gone very, very wrong. Principal photography began in May 2021, [7] with filming taking place at a Georgian stone manor house in Chappaqua, New York.

I was also very inspired by Heathers, which is a horror movie that also has a slightly lighter tone. Milder terms include ‘pussy’, ‘bitch’, ‘n***a’, ‘dick’, ‘asshole’, ‘pissed’ and ‘shit’, in addition to use of the ‘middle finger’ gesture. Stripped of the group chats and podcasts, the Twitter and TikTok that define them, these young people are confronted with their unmediated selves, and no one will come out looking pretty. Host David (Pete Davidson) greets them with little enthusiasm, and there’s an undercurrent of suspicion between the group and Sophie that works well to keep the viewer guessing as to who the killer is and what their motives are. As a whodunnit, it will certainly keep viewers guessing – and perhaps even questioning where the boundaries of the slasher lie – but it also entertainingly skewers these Zoomers’ disconnection from both truth and reality itself.
