* EveryoneHasStandards: Dirk from Low Shoulder is against the idea of sacrificing Jennifer to Satan. Nikolai from the band then asks him if he wants to work the rest of his life in a coffee shop and be a big loser or " to be rich and awesome like that guy from Maroon 5". [[SubvertedTrope Dirk chooses the latter option]]. He's still not exactly happy with it, though, and can be seen looking away as Nikolai stabs Jennifer.

''Jennifer's Body'' is an 2009 [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror Comedy Horror]] film directed by Karyn Kusama and written by Creator/DiabloCody (the writer of ''Film/{{Juno}}''), and starring Creator/MeganFox and Creator/AmandaSeyfried. Jennifer is a high school cheerleader who goes to a rock concert, where the band tries to sacrifice her to {{Satan}} in order to get a record deal. It works, but [[CameBackWrong Jennifer gets possessed by a demon in the process, causing her to start seducing, killing, and eating the boys in her school]]. Upon finding out, Needy, Jennifer's "plain jane" best friend since childhood, sets out to stop her from wiping out the student body.

Upon finding out, Needy, Jennifer's "plain jane" best friend since childhood, sets out to stop her from wiping out the student body.



* AmbiguouslyGay: You could easily make a case for Jennifer being a lesbian -- she seems way more interested in Needy than she does in any guy, even kissing her at one point, and her rendezvouses with men seem shallow at best, maybe even just ploys for her social position. (Or for food.) This is a heavy contrast to her very passionate, very emotional friendship with Needy.


Added DiffLines:

* ConsumingPassion: The whole movie runs on this. There are sexual undertones to Jennifer [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything eating boys.]] And Jennifer's answer to Needy's question is often a statement used when saying someone is bisexual.
-->Needy: "I thought you only killed boys."
-->Jennifer: "I go both ways."


Added DiffLines:

* LiteralManeater: Jennifer. She seduces boys before eating them alive.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: [[spoiler: When Needy confronts Jennifer at the end, she's armed with a sharp utility knife. A knife for, in Needy's words, "cutting boxes". "Box" is also a euphemism for "vagina" - as is another [[CountryMatters certain insult]]. [[DontExplainTheJoke Needy is basically calling Jennifer a cunt]].]]

* CassandraTruth: Chip initially doesn't believe Needy's seemingly outrageous claims about Jennifer, not that you can blame him. Also, Needy is the only one who knows that Low Shoulder aren't the heroes everyone else thinks they are; no-one else believes her when she states otherwise, presumably because that's part of Low Shoulder's DealWithTheDevil.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Jennifer's abduction by Low Shoulder has some extremely rape-y overtones. They take advantage of her shock at the bar burning down to ply her with drink, bundle her into their van, and drive off with her into the woods. During the journey, a terrified Jennifer even outright asks if they're rapists, and doesn't get a straight response.
