Bodies Bodies Bodies - Review
I Can't Believe You're Making This About You. 3 / 5
Released in UK Cinemas: 9th September 2022
Directed by Halina Reijn.
A group of rich 20-somethings decides to play Bodies Bodies Bodies, a game where one of them is secretly a “killer” while the rest tries to “escape”. Things take a turn for the worse when real bodies start turning up, setting off a paranoid and dangerous chain of events.
This glossy whodunnit for Gen-Z borders the line between unconventionally genius and borderline annoying as a group of friends gather to drink, party, and play Bodies Bodies Bodies
Over 95 minutes you get a front-row seat to watching the madness unfold. As friendships fall apart, the bodies begin to drop as they try to survive the night in a mansion only lit by glowsticks and phone torches.
It's a film that purposely tries to get a reaction from its audience. Playing Gen-Z vocab bingo in the hope that someone in the crowd will be just as triggered as much as the characters. The cast does a solid job as they compete for who can 1-up each other in hostility. Maria Bakalova shines as the new addition to the group, acting as the audience surrogate to their seemingly lavish lifestyle.
Soaked in style and attitude, Bodies Bodies Bodies strives for your attention but fails to do anything to stand out amongst other horror comedies despite its larger than life style.
