Jennifer’s Body didn’t show legs at the box office this Fall, but Fox Home Entertainment is looking to get better traction over the holiday season with an Unrated Version of the Megan Fox frightener, available Dec. 29 on Blu-ray disc and standard DVD. While both editions include audio commentary from director Karyn Kusama and Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno), the film’s Blu-ray release is crammed with special bonus material, including video diaries, gag reels, deleted scenes (”Ass, Gas, or Grass” sounds particularly enticing), featurettes, and the wickedly funny Megan Fox “Peer Pressure” PSA.
Jennifer’s Body stars Megan Fox as a high school heartbreaker turned man-eater after a fateful encounter with a band of satanists. Amanda Seyfried plays her best friend and foil. Despite its quality kills and quotable dialogue (”It smells like Thai food in here. Have you guys been fucking), the horror-comedy failed to find its audience. To date, the film has only grossed $16 million.
Jennifer’s Body most likely took a beating at the box office its opening weekend for two reasons: 1.) the R rating forced the much sought after under 17 chronic masturbator market to buy tickets to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs to gain entry into the theater and consequently into Jennifer’s Body. 2.) Girls that don’t look like Megan Fox dragged their boyfriends to see The Informant.
Guys, listen to the teachings of Texas Tech coach Mike Leach. Don’t let your “fat little girlfriends” influence you. If you have the means this Christmas, I highly recommend you pick up Jennifer’s Body on Blu-ray.
