[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jennifers_body_ver2.jpg]]

'''''Jennifer's Body''''' is an 2009 [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror Comedy Horror]] film 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 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.

The name of the film is taken from the song "Jennifer's Body" by Music/{{Hole}}. Oddly, the song does not appear in the film, although another track from the same album does.

----
!!This film has examples of the following tropes:

%%* AdrenalineMakeover
* AdultFear: Imagine being in the shoes of Jennifer's mother. [[spoiler: You come into your daughter's bedroom, not suspecting a thing is wrong, only to find that she's been (or so it seems) murdered by her best friend.]]
** Jonas and Colin's parents have to deal with the fact that their sons were brutally murdered and eaten.
** Imagine also being Ahmet's parents. [[spoiler:Your son goes on an exchange trip to a foreign country, only to presumably die in an out-of-control fire... except he's actually been eaten alive.]]
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Jennifer's a cheerleader, and almost every guy in the school wants to bang her. She uses this to her advantage after being possessed.
* AlphaBitch: Jennifer was like this even before she turned into a demon. Needy just seems to be somewhat safe from her more overt {{jerkass}} tendencies. Jennifer's AlphaBitch slowly begins rearing its head towards Needy when she notices how close friends Needy was with Colin and later how in love Needy and Chip were [[spoiler: and decides to eat first Colin and then later Chip just because she wanted to take what Needy had.]]
* AmbiguouslyBi: Anita "Needy" Lesnicki has a boyfriend, whom she cares about very deeply. She also makes out with Jennifer, and seems to be really into it before she breaks it off. Jennifer herself has been intimate with lots of boys, but she also passionately makes out with Needy.
* 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.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Chip's little sister Camille.
--> You're penis cheese!
* AntagonistTitle: Jennifer becomes the main antagonist after her possession. Needy is the protagonist.
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Low Shoulder really had it coming.]]
* BadassBoast: "I am going to eat your soul ''and shit it out, Lesnicki''!!"
* BaitAndSwitchLesbians: The earliest trailers showed Jennifer and Needy in intimate situations and despite their making out in the movie, both of them have male love interests(if you can call Jennifer's victims love interests). However, there is enough LesYay in the movie for someone to reasonably assume that the two girls were at least bisexual. The argument could even be made for Jennifer being an outright lesbian, since all of her male interests were either the result of jockeying for social position, or trying to keep Needy for herself. In fact, after a scene of Needy gazing a little too blissfully at Jennifer another girl says to her point blank: "You are totally [=LesbiGay=]."
* BigBadFriend: Jennifer. She even tries to stay "[[FriendlyEnemy friends]]" with Needy... kinda.
* BigNo: Needy lets out several after [[spoiler:Chip's death]].
* BiggerBad: Jennifer may be the main antagonist, but it was the actions of Low Shoulder that turned her into a monster.
* BlackComedy: Jennifer asking Needy for a tampon [[spoiler: to plug her gaping stomach wound]].
** Jonas' grief-stricken father loudly declaring that he's going to find his son's killer, [[GroinAttack chop off his balls and use them as a door knocker]].
** When Needy and Chip are having sex for the first time, the former starts sensing Jennifer's murder of Colin and freaks out appropriately. Chip, on the other hand, mistakes her gasps for pleasurable ones and looks extremely pleased with himself.
** Jennifer's reaction [[spoiler: when Needy stabs her through the heart]]? "[[MajorInjuryUnderreaction My tit]]!"
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: While not the first death shown on-screen, [[spoiler:Jennifer's first victim is Ahmet, the Indian exchange student]].
* BodyHorror: As a horror movie involving a girl shifting into a demon would require. See NightmareFace for more details.
* BrainyBrunette and DumbBlonde: Inverted. The brunette Jennifer is an [[BrainlessBeauty airheaded]] AlphaBitch (though it's implied that she's [[ObfuscatingStupidity just playing dumb]]), while the blonde Needy is a HollywoodNerd.
* BreakTheCutie: Poor, poor Needy. She starts out as a cheerful if [[ExtremeDoormat easily pushed around]] young girl with a caring boyfriend, but after everything she goes through she becomes angry, violent, unstable [[spoiler:and vengeful]].
* BreastAttack: [[spoiler:"My tit!" Justified, seeing as Needy has to stab through Jennifer's breast to get to her heart.]]
* BuffySpeak: Creator/DiabloCody wrote this movie... [[Film/{{Juno}} and it shows]].
* 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.
* CatholicSchoolGirlsRule: See the poster.
* TheCheerleader: Vapid, skanky, and bullying... and that's before she gets possessed.
* ChekhovsGun:
** [[spoiler:The BFF necklace that Jennifer wears.]]
** The whirlpool beneath the falls. In Act I, Needy says that no one knows where it empties out at. In Act III, she finds out, finding Chekhov's Gun number 3:
** [[spoiler:The knife that Jennifer was sacrificed with.]]
* ComingAndGoing: Chip and Needy having sex for the first time, juxtaposed with Jennifer killing and eating Colin.
* ContagiousPowers: [[spoiler:Being bitten by a demon and surviving gives you some of its power.]]
* CursedWithAwesome: Jennifer believes that her possession is essentially this (in a deleted scene, she is openly amused when Needy speculates about a possible cure for Jennifer's curse). [[spoiler:Needy herself becomes CursedWithAwesome at the end of the movie.]]
* DealWithTheDevil: Low Shoulder tries to do this in order to become successful.
* DeathBySex: Played so straight it's likely a parody of this trope -- Jennifer uses the promise of sex to lure boys into places where she can eat them.
* DemonicPossession: Jennifer, after being sacrificed by a band. Interestingly, the demon doesn't seem to take over her entire personality, but amplifies her {{Jerkass}} tendencies UpToEleven. She also suffers from a nasty HorrorHunger, and gains supernatural powers such as [[SuperStrength increased strength]] and [[HealingFactor healing]], [[PowerFloats levitation]], and [[OffscreenTeleportation teleportation]].
* DepravedBisexual
-->'''Needy:''' I thought you only killed boys?
-->'''Jennifer:''' I go both ways.
* DidYouJustHaveSex
--> '''Jennifer:''' It smells like Thai food in here. Have you guys been fucking?
* 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.
* DownerEnding: Some of the main cast are killed [[spoiler:(Jennifer and Chip)]], and Needy gets put in an insane asylum. [[BittersweetEnding On the plus side]], KarmaHoudini was averted since [[spoiler:Needy gained some of Jennifer's powers (super strength and levitation, at the least) and proceeded to escape and murder all of Low Shoulder.]]
* DramaticNecklaceRemoval: [[spoiler: Needy does this to Jennifer.]]
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Jennifer really enjoys her new powers after becoming possessed and seems to revel in the murders she commits.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Chip's [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impalement]] of Jennifer.]]
* EnemyToAllLivingThings: When Jennifer is about to attack, animals all around her start fidgeting and screeching.
* 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.
* EvilTastesGood: Jennifer describes the post-feeding "buzz" like this:
-->'''Jennifer:''' "You know when you kiss a boy for the first time and it feels like your entire body is on vibrate."
-->'''Needy:''' "Yeah."
-->'''Jennifer:''' "It's that good."
* ExtremeDoormat: Needy to Jennifer, at the beginning.
* FakeBand: Low Shoulder.
* FanDisservice: Yes, it is MeganFox, but it is somewhat difficult to find Jennifer sexy when she's covered in blood, has a mouthful of sharp piranha teeth, and is acting creepy as hell. Not to mention the way her [[FacialHorror cheeks split open]] when she feeds.
* {{Fanservice}}: The entire marketing campaign was built on [[MsFanservice Megan Fox's]] hotness.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Low Shoulder might be considered this, especially the lead singer Nikolai. He chats to Jennifer in an almost friendly manner and jokes around as [[spoiler: he's preparing to sacrifice her to Satan.]]
* FilleFatale: Jennifer [[ReallyGetsAround really gets around]].
* FingerSuckHealing: In a flashback, Needy did this for Jennifer when they were children. It is implied that this is why Needy is able to sense when Jennifer is about to kill someone.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: At the very beginning, Needy kicks an orderly at the psychiatric institution with such force that she ends up flying across the table and even [[TheToothHurts knocks out one of her teeth]]. [[spoiler:It later turns out that she gained some of Jennifer's demonic powers, such as SuperStrength.]]
** When the teacher is mentioning the victims of the Melody Lane fire, Jennifer giggles after he says the name of Ahmet, the Indian exchange student. [[spoiler:As it turns out, Ahmet was Jennifer's first victim.]]
* GigglingVillain: Jennifer indulges in some very creepy giggling shortly after her possession.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Is there any other reason why this film has a minute-long scene of Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried making out?
* GlasgowGrin: Jennifer's face when she feeds has shades of this. When she opens her mouth to eat Jonas, her cheeks visibly split open.
* AGodAmI: After realizing her newfound healing ability, Jennifer burns her tongue with a lighter then loudly declares "I am a god."
* GodivaHair: Jennifer, before she eats Jonas.
* GoneHorriblyRight: Low Shoulder's "virgin" sacrifice. It got them fame and fortune (and drugs and hos) but it ''also'' brought back a man eating demon.
* {{Gorn}}: Jonas' corpse is briefly shown, entrails hanging out for all to see. We later see Colin's messy corpse, but it isn't nearly as graphic as the state Jonas was left in.
* GoryDiscretionShot: For most of the deaths, although we do get to see their messy remains afterwards.
* {{Goth}}: Colin.
* GreatBigLibraryOfEverything: Parodied when Needy discovers the truth about Jennifer's demonic possession from books found in the school library.
--> '''Chip''': We have an ''[[LampshadeHanging occult section]]'' in the library?
--> '''Needy''': Yeah. It's really small.
* GreaterScopeVillain: None other than {{Satan}}.
* HappyFlashback: There are several {{flashback}}s about Needy and Jennifer's childhood. These scenes have [[FlashbackEffects bright colors]] compared to the rest of the movie.
* HealingFactor: Jennifer gains healing powers upon her possession. The healing is faster after she's recently fed - when she's weaker, the healing is slower.
* HeartInTheWrongPlace: Jennifer places Jonas's hand above her left breast and asks him to feel her heart.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard / KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Needy murders all of the members of Low Shoulder using the same knife they sacrificed Jennifer with. To further add insult to injury, she leaves the knife embedded in Nikolai's chest.]]
* HollywoodHypeMachine: From the marketing, to even the movie poster at the top of the page, this movie was pretty much an attempt to cash in on Megan Fox's status as an "It Girl." It backfired.
* HollywoodSatanism: Low Shoulder.
* HornyDevils: Jennifer - a type of succubus, to be exact.
* HorrorHunger: For everyone else involved, Jennifer seems to have no qualms about her new diet whatsoever.
* HowWeGotHere: The film starts with Needy in a psychiatric hospital, and most of the film consists of her showing us how she got to that point.
* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: Devil's Kettle.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Jennifer uses this to get drinks, despite being underage. She explicitly calls Needy's tits "smart bombs" for their destructive power.
* IconicOutfit: Jennifer likes to sleep in a 3/4-sleeve shirt, short underwear, and either knee-length socks or legwarmers.
* ImAHumanitarian: Jennifer butchers and devours her victims.
* ImpactSilhouette: [[spoiler: When Needy escapes the psychiatric institution at the end, she walks straight through the wire fence, leaving a large hole in her wake.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Chip impales Jennifer with a large pole just before he dies. It doesn't kill her, but he deserves points for trying.]]
* ImperfectRitual: Another "sacrifice is not a virgin" example: the rockers sacrifice Jennifer thinking she's a virgin, but since she's not, a succubus takes over her body.
* IndecisiveParody: One common criticism of the movie is the fact that it flops back and forth between being intentionally silly and seeming to take itself seriously.
* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: Just try saying "Jennifer's Body" in a casual conversation without adding the words "the movie" before it. See what happens.
* {{Irony}}: Near the end of the film, a road sign warning about low shoulder is shown.
* JabbaTableManners: Jennifer, when she tries to eat the chicken from Needy's fridge.
* {{Jerkass}}: Jennifer starts out as one, but [[TookALevelInJerkass she becomes]] [[KickTheDog a lot crueller]] [[DemonicPossession after her possession]]. Also [[FauxAffablyEvil Nikolai]].
* JumpScare: Used a few times, most notably when Jennifer is suddenly standing ''right'' behind Needy shortly after her murder and possession, and then later in the same scene when she suddenly lets out a demonic roar. Also used when a bird frightens Colin when he is trying to find Jennifer in the partially-constructed house.
* KickTheDog: Jennifer loves doing this, particularly after her possession.
* MamaBear: Needy's mother invokes this.
--> I dreamed some bad people were trying to nail you to a tree with hammers and big stakes and shit. Just like [[Literature/TheBible J.C.]] But I didn't let 'em get to you, 'cause I'm a hard-assed, Ford-tough mama bear.
* ManipulativeBitch: Jennifer is an example of the type that ''doesn't'' have some big, complicated plan. Even when she starts killing people, her transparent playing on Needy's insecurities is closer to simple AlphaBitch bullying than towards any actual goal.
* ManlyTears: Jonas, after his best friend dies in the fire.
* MeaningfulName: The title.
** You'd never guess what Needy's defining trait is.
** The town too. Of course a demonic sacrifice would happen in a town called "Devil's Kettle".
* MenAreTheExpendableGender: Well, according to Jennifer, they are. [[spoiler:She decides to make an exception for Needy, though. Nice of her, wasn't it?]]
* MoodWhiplash: Intentionally invoked in the scene that jumps between Jennifer seducing, then devouring some poor schmuck and [[spoiler:Needy and Chip's {{WAFF}}y sex]].
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Jennifer has lots of sharp little piranha-style teeth when feeding on people.
* {{Motifs}}: A "cross" symbol shows up multiple times: on the bottom of the isolation cell Needy is placed into, crosses are drawn onto the hands of Melody Lane patrons, and, at the end, [[spoiler:Needy slashes a cross shape into Jennifer's torso]]. This also extends to the dialogue ("Boo, cross out Needy").
* NerdGlasses: Needy wears them.
* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailer contained some great one-liners cut out of the actual movie.
* NiceGuy: Chip and Colin. Needy was a NiceGirl before the events of the movie totally [[BreakTheCutie broke her]].
* NightmareFace: Jennifer, when feeding. She gains sharp little piranha-like teeth, her mouth splits open extremely wide, GlasgowGrin style, and she gains HellishPupils.
* NinjaPirateRobotZombie: Chip invokes this when he says this about Jonas' mother: "She's staring out the window like a zombie mannequin robot statue."
* NothingIsScarier: Used to great effect shortly before Needy discovers Jennifer in her house.
* ObviouslyEvil: Nikolai, Low Shoulder's lead singer, is this in Needy's eyes.
--> I watched her get into that van and I knew something awful was going to happen. He was skinny and twisted and evil like this petrified tree I saw when I was a kid.
* OddFriendship: Jennifer and Needy. They have nothing in common but have been best friends since they were very small. Unfortunately, Jennifer is a pretty toxic friend even before she gets possessed.
* OffscreenTeleportation: With a bit of creepy echoing whispers too.
* OutOfCharacterAlert: While not the nicest person before her possession, Jennifer's callous disregard for the deaths that resulted from the Melody Lane fire absolutely shocks Needy and is another tip-off that something is horribly wrong with her friend.
* PopularIsDumb: Jennifer, who is clearly far ditzier than the less popular Needy.
* PowerFloats: Provides the page quote, too!
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Jennifer [[spoiler:loses her ability to levitate]] when Needy [[spoiler:rips off her BFF necklace]].
* PragmaticVillainy: At first, Jennifer only feeds when she absolutely ''has'' to, going at least a month inbetween killing [[spoiler:Jonas]] and [[spoiler:Colin]]. However, she [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope eventually]] starts killing simply for the hell of it...
* PreMortemOneLiner: Kind of, since it's not said to the victim (but precedes the credits in which the act is shown).
-->'''Passing Motorist''': So, why are you headed east?\\
'''[[spoiler:Needy]]''': I'm following this rock band.\\
'''Driver''': Must be one hell of a group.\\
'''[[spoiler:Needy]]''': Tonight's gonna be their last show.
* PsychicLink: It is strongly implied that Jennifer and Needy have one, following an incident when they were children in which Needy sucked the blood from a puncture on Jennifer's hand.
* RealityIsUnrealistic: The Devil's Kettle is a real waterfall. Half the river really does disappear into the ground. Scientists have ''no idea'' where it comes back out. (The town in the movie doesn't exist, however.)
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler:After discovering that she has gained some of the demon's powers, Needy uses them to escape the mental institution, so she can track down and murder all of Low Shoulder.]]
* RockMeAsmodeus: Low Shoulder, the indie band that tries to sacrifice Jennifer in order to get a record deal.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: Jennifer and Needy, although the trope is [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]].
--> '''Needy:''' Sandbox love never dies.
* RuleOfPool: Just before Jennifer [[spoiler:eats Chip, Needy's boyfriend, she tosses him into a pool while he is wearing ''formal wear''. She then proceeds to jump in after him. Followed soon by Needy.]]
* RunningGag: One character constantly refers to Devil's Kettle as "[[AccidentalMisnaming Devil's Lake]]".
* SceneryPorn: The scene where Jennifer is swimming naked in a lake. The first shot of the scene is actually a wide-angle overhead shot with Jennifer's body only a tiny speck -- she's actually quite easy to miss, so for that shot at least the lake is the emphasis.
* SelfMutilationDemonstration: Jennifer burns her own tongue with a cigarette lighter, and slashes herself in front of Needy when she decides to share her 'secret' with her.
* SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll: Low Shoulder is living this lifestyle when we see them on tour at the end of the movie.
* SexSells: Just watch the film's ad campaign. Heck, the film's title is named after it.
* ShadowDiscretionShot: When Jennifer [[spoiler: kills Colin]].
* ShesGotLegs: Most of the movie posters.
* SickeningCrunch: Heard when Jennifer brutally snaps [[spoiler: Colin's]] arm before she kills him.
* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: Amanda Seyfried ''does'' appear in the trailers, but apart from her name on top, she is absent from all the posters, which focus exclusively on Megan Fox.
* SlasherSmile: Jennifer displays one at various times. [[spoiler:Most notably after she first becomes possessed and when she appears in Needy's vision sitting on top of the chair watching her and Chip have sex.]]
* SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror: Slides all around this. Scenes go from funny to shocking to funny, then back to shocking. Usually with quite a bit of sexy in the middle.
* SlumberParty: Discussed when Jennifer appears in Needy's bed and reminisces about the sleepovers she had with her. Jennifer also tries to invoke this by appearing in said bed and then suggesting she and Needy "play boyfriend and girlfriend like [they] used to".
* SoundtrackDissonance: Tracks like Panic! at the Disco's "New Perspective" and Florence and the Machine's "A Kiss with a Fist" seem a bit light for a horror movie.
** Not to mention an in-movie example when Low Shoulder sings Tommy Tutone's '867-5309/Jenny' as they murder Jennifer.
* StealthParody: A flimsy plot held together with [[{{Squick}} squicky]] {{Fanservice}} and generous helpings of [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall self-aware]] BuffySpeak.
* StealthPun: That quick one-liner when Jennifer calls Chip "lime green jello," when calling him jealous.
* StrawFeminist: Jennifer has a bit of this trait, claiming that PMS was invented by "boy-run media to make (women) seem crazy". An unused exchange between her and Needy also has her trying to justify her murders thus:
--->'''Needy:''' You're killing people!
--->'''Jennifer:''' No, I'm killing ''boys''.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Chip.]]
* SuperStrength: Jennifer gains this power following her possession, enabling her to seriously overpower Jonas, who is described as "the biggest guy in school". She also throws Colin around like a rag doll. [[spoiler:Needy also gains this power after being bitten by Jennifer.]]
* TakeThat: Some to {{Goth}} and {{Emo}} subcultures:
** When Chip and Needy talk about Colin:
---> '''Chip:''' How are you friends with Colin Gray? I thought Colin Gray only talked to the Dead Girls.\\
'''Needy:''' I just am. We have Composition together. He's a really good writer. You know, he's so dark and emotional and all.\\
'''Chip''': Oh. I can relate. I'm also like that, even if I'm not all obvious about it like a poseur.
** Jennifer mocks Colin when his arm gets cut by a pair of hedgeclippers:
---> '''Jennifer:''' Oh! A puncture wound. God, that's ''so'' emo.
** She also says this about him:
---> '''Jennifer''': He listens to maggot rock. He wears nail polish. My dick is bigger than his.#
* [[ThatManIsDead That Woman Is Dead]]: After being [[BreakTheCutie well and truly broken]], Needy states in a narration that she doesn't know who Needy Lesnicki is any more.
* ThousandYardStare: After [[spoiler: Chip dies in her arms]], [[HeroicBSOD Needy returns home, lies on her bed, and just stares into space]]. She later has another, smaller one after [[spoiler: she kills Jennifer and the latter's mother walks in]].
** Jonas' mother takes to staring blankly out of her window after her son is murdered.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Needy, after gaining some of the demon's powers and becoming institutionalised.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: Jennifer [[AlphaBitch isn't the most]] [[{{Jerkass}} pleasant person]] [[WithFriendsLikeThese to be around]], but becomes a ''lot'' nastier after becoming possessed. Also, [[TraumaCongaLine every traumatic thing]] that happens to Needy turns her into a [[BreakTheCutie bitter, angry, violent shell of her former self]].
%%* TotallyRadical
* TouchedByVorlons: [[spoiler:Needy gains some of Jennifer's demon powers after being bitten by her. She uses them to break out of the mental hospital and kill Low Shoulder.]]
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: The [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence Jennifer-Colin and Needy-Chip sex scenes]] are made this way, with constant intercuts.
* UnusualEuphemism: Jennifer seems to make half her lines in this.
* UnreliableNarrator: One possible interpretation. The story is told as a flashback by Anita, who is a patient in a mental hospital. The story in the flashback appears to contain multiple supernatural aspects, notably that Anita's friend Jennifer has magic powers. At the end of the film, [[spoiler: Anita appears to use the magic powers that had supposedly been Jennifer's to break out of the asylum.]] Was all of it real? All the delusions of a lunatic? Not precisely real, but the truth as seen ThroughTheEyesOfMadness?
* VirginSacrifice: Low Shoulder tries to sacrifice Jennifer, thinking she's a virgin. Unfortunately, she's been [[ReallyGetsAround having sex since]] JuniorHigh. The ritual works as planned, but Jennifer gets possessed by a demon because she wasn't a virgin.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Whenever [[spoiler:Jennifer vomits up that [[{{Squick}} demonic, spiny black sludge]].]]
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Jennifer walks all over Needy, although the latter is in denial about it until the very end.
--> '''Needy:''' You know what? You were never really a good friend. Even when we were little, you used to steal my toys and pour lemonade on my bed.
--> '''Jennifer:''' And now, I'm [[spoiler:eating your boyfriend]]. See? At least I'm consistent.
