The American film company A24 has made a sensational rise in recent years: “Ex Machina”, “The Black Diamond” and “Hereditary”, “Lady Bird”, “The Lighthouse’ and ‘Minari’, ‘A Ghost Story’, ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Midsommar’ – all of these extraordinary and great films and many, many more are A24 titles.
Most recently, they celebrated further successes with “Everything Everywhere All At Once” and “Marcel The Shell With Shoes On” and received a lot of praise from press and audience. So it’s fair to say that a new A24 film is always eagerly awaited by film fans – and that includes the new slasher genre mix “Bodies Bodies Bodies“.
“Bodies Bodies Bodies’ also premiered at the famous SXSW (South By Southwest) film festival and was acclaimed by the audience there and overwhelmed with rave reviews – the next big horror hype of 2022, after “X” had already caused similar reactions in May of this year.
In the meantime, however, there have also been some somewhat less enthusiastic reviews of “Bodies Bodies Bodies’ sunk in. Despite it The slasher crime comedy still has 92 percent positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes (average rating: 7.6 out of 10) and a good 68 out of 100 points on Metacritic. Especially for a genre film very respectable!
In “Bodies Bodies Bodies’ young Sophie (Amandla Stenberg) travels with her friend Bee (Maria Bakalova) to a celebration at a secluded forest estate. There, the couple meets some of Bee’s longtime friends and their current partners.
When alcohol and drugs aren’t enough to keep the spirits high as the hurricane approaches, the troupe ventures into a party game. But soon the fun turns into bloody seriousness and the first death occurs. Was it the inscrutable host David (Pete Davidson) or Greg (Lee Pace), who was actually completely out of place at 40? Or maybe the attention-seeking Emma (Chase Sui Wonders)?
“Bodies Bodies Bodies“ will be in German cinemas on October 6, 2022 – just in time for Halloween. You can watch the trailer in English below:
