Once more, A24 adds a win to their all-timer 2022 slate. Bodies Bodies Bodies doesn’t break much new ground for slasher flicks or murder mysteries, but it’s hard to recall the last time a film like it was this much fun and full of energy. Every new victim sends the delightfully messy cast of characters on a roller coaster ride of allegiances, betrayals, and mistrust, complete with hyper-Gen Z panic and brilliant improvisation. Each member of this terrific ensemble cast has pitch-perfect chemistry with the entire group, though it’s Rachel Sennott who emerges as the film’s ultimate MVP.
I definitely wanna play Bodies Bodies Bodies because this Gen-Z murder mystery is packed for one hell of a fun time. It’s ridiculously funny and unnervingly tense at the same time. The movie constantly has us guessing, and the cast is perfectly suited to the craziness that ensues on screen, especially Rachel Sennott, who steals every scene she’s in. Where the film really succeeds, though, is in its satire, showing off the faux care and inherent narcissism of Gen Z a little too accurately. Bodies Bodies Bodies continues A24’s 2022 winning streak.
A24 is fucking killing it this year! Bodies Bodies Bodies is a bloody bloody bloody good time and a summer essential that should be on your must-watch list. It’s a hilarious, top-notch whodunnit that is phenomenally written and directed, not to mention the spectacular cast that portrays their characters perfectly. Plus, the best part is that the film maintains tension from start to finish. Overall, this is another great movie to add to A24’s successes in 2022, and I honestly think this movie was made just for me!
