A hurricane is always a good time to get together with a group of friends and have a good time. Not many people would think of doing such a thing, but I don’t know, maybe a well off bunch of friends that have nothing better to do would. It is that situation where you get the answer to the question, what happens when you put a bunch of rich 20 somethings in a house during a storm? The answer of course is nothing good.
Sophie (Amandla Staenberg) has been on the outs with her group of friends, but that won’t stop her from brining her new girlfriend (Maria Bakalova) to a party they are having. The party is taking place at David’s (Pete Davidson) house, where the alcohol and drugs are free flowing, and so is the backstabbing. The party’s guest list consist of Emma (Chase Sui Wonders), Jordan (Myha’la Herrold), Alice (Rachel Sennott), and her date Greg ( Lee Pace) all who are hitting it hard already by the time Sophie shows up. When she gets there everyone is surprised to see her, as she has been M.I.A. from the group for a while. These are the worst kind of friends, the ones who talk behind each other’s back at every opportunity and are always trying to one up each other. Those things though can’t get in the way of making some good TikTok videos along with some fun and games. However in a powder keg like this, it won’t take much to set off an explosion. That blast comes in the form of a game the friends play called, “Bodies Bodies Bodies” , in which they all hide and one of them is a killer, after an actual dead body is found, they must figure out who among them is the murderer. The solving of the crime brings up some fragility between the friends and setting the mood for what will happen next.
Written by Kristen Roupenian, Sarah DeLappe, and Chloe Okuno,while being directed by Halina Rejin , Bodies Bodies Bodies is wound very tightly as it makes you feel quite anxious during its complete runtime. That though is not the only feeling you get, as you will laugh a lot, because drama can be funny when it isn’t happening to you. Bodies Bodies Bodies is a murder mystery with Lord of the Flies DNA that reminds us of how madness can occur when there is chaos.
What this movie is most of all is fun, which in large part is due to its cast as they deliver the scripts sharp dialogue. As each death brings more questions as the remaining cast of characters all try and figure out who did it, the twist of an answer comes at the perfect time. Each of the group brings something to the table, but its Rachel Sennott, as Alice who steals the movie and seems to have been given the perfect thing to say each time. Bodies Bodies Bodies is one of those movies that is worth multiple viewings, and while you can question how some of this might age, who knows, but in the now, this is about as much fun you will have watching bloody murder.
