Bodies Bodies Bodies

Bodies Bodies Bodies directed by Halina Reijn leaves many fans flabbergasted and perplexed from intro to conclusion.


Popular filming studio A24 shook the very foundation of the movie industry with “Everything All At Once” returns with its latest project – Bodies Bodies Bodies which was released on the 5th of August 2022.

In this film, we follow a group of friends around the ages of 20-something stuck at a mansion in a remote area during a hurricane.

When one friend suggests they play Bodies and a dead body is discovered as a result of this game, friends reveal their true colors, turning on one another and revealing shocking truths whilst trying to survive the night.

Right off the bat, Bodies Bodies Bodies gave me uncomfortable vibes with its introduction, imagine a child coming home after school only to find their parents swapping tongues at the front door.

The trailer indicates that this would be a slasher genre movie but honest to god, there is no such thing. Instead of a slasher, we get a couple of kids that are obsessed with drugs and alcohol.

There’s no shying around the corner with this film, it showcases the many issues that today’s generation has to deal with such as drug abuse, alcohol substance, mental health, and social status.

I applaud the film for how it keeps the audience guessing as to who can be the killer while also creating a killer right in front of our very eyes but not necessarily pointing to the fact that they could be the first killer.

The characters aren’t anything special to speak about and I found it hard to relate to either one of the characters as all I could take from this film is that stupidity is contagious amongst friends.

Though I have a feeling that today’s generation that went to see the film – Bodies Bodies Bodies, may have come to a different conclusion in which that they found it compelling and profound.

Sophie played by Amandla Stenberg and Greg played by Lee Pace gave the most powerful performances amongst the cast whereas I found the rest to be mediocre and tedium.

At the end of the day, it’s concerning to see the degree to which the younger generations have decided to live their life with no productivity but instead chosen to indulge and promote things that don’t bring value in their lives.

Not to mention, the reveal at the end of the film translates to everything about today’s generation, in the hopes of making a video for whichever social media platform and getting likes.

A mistake was made which lead to the murder of many because of the stupidity of one person, how ironic.

Overall, Bodies Bodies Bodies is a new-gen murder mystery targeted at the younger audience, it reminds of Scream but with a different twist and without the slasher, I have to elaborate on this.

The pacing and buildup don’t necessarily reward you for making it through ninety minutes of the film, maybe that’s due to the reveal at the end but you’ll have to see it for yourself to understand.

"In the first version, I did like the game a lot, because I used to play the game with my friends a lot. We call it Werewolf... or mafia or whatever. And I would always end up being very emotional about it and feeling left out and all of that."

When a group of friends get stuck in a mansion during a hurricane, and party game gone wrong ends with a dead body on the ground results in fake friends at every turn as they try to find the killer among them.
