Bodies Bodies Bodies may be the first horror movie truly made for a Gen Z audience. Filled with buzz words, social media references, and memes that will make some viewers laugh and others groan. But in between those references and the ever-growing want to throttle some of the characters in the movie – is a movie that is almost a guilty pleasure.
The movie follows a group of rich twenty-somethings who get together to have a Hurricane Party when the group decides to play Bodies Bodies Bodies. The game is based loosely on the game Werewolf, where one player is the murderer and the rest have to figure out who did it. But while they’re playing one of the players is actually killed – and the game quickly turns darker. Not only are they fighting against the elements, but each other throughout the night.
With characters who are more enemies than friends, buzz words, and even cringeworthy moments – the movie makes you question who the killer really was. The movie doesn’t seem to take itself seriously, it’s one of those off-the-wall horror/thriller films that will leave you questioning if they actually found the killer – until they reveal who it is at the very end.
The characters in the film seem to be written to be the worst versions of themselves, and to lean into the stereotypes of all of Gen Z. It makes you laugh, and roll your eyes and it seems to mock itself at times as well as assumptions about other people.
Bodies Bodies Bodies is enjoyable, even if goofy, and may make older viewers feel not only uneasy about their age but the amount of money in their bank account. It doesn’t take a lot of commitment to follow the story, and while it seems to get even more ridiculous as the movie goes on. But it seems to have an appeal to it that will win viewers over and will most likely get a small cult following. The movie is currently in theaters, and while it hasn’t had a large publicity campaign, it will end up with a cult following.
