I know a red-band trailer [via ShockTillYouDrop] for “Jennifer’s Body”, the new comedy-horror flick written by Diablo Cody and starring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried should get me all tingly but…it’s not. If anything, it looks way too incongruous, as if director Karyn Kusama (“Aeon Flux”) has kept Cody’s dialogue and story but failed to match it in tone. All of the shots look like Generic Horror 101 and the trailer randomly introduces Adam Brody’s satan-worshiping rock band without mentioning that they worship satan and how they’re connected to Jennifer (Fox) or Needy (Seyfried). It’s more like “Hey! Adam Brody’s in this movie! You kids like him, right?”
I’m still excited for this flick but I’m starting to get the feeling that backlash towards Cody and Fox coupled with Kusama’s poor direction may spell disaster for this flick. Hit the jump to see the trailer and judge for yourself. “Jennifer’s Body” hits theatres on September 18th.
