You know, this will probably be taken off the ballots. It's at 39% at RT, which isn't BAD bad, while Love Happens is at 14%. Technically, this is an improvement over Megan Fox's performance in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
You think you know, but you have no idea.

But shock value is what horror movies are all about, so of course there will be politically incorrect dialogue and an uncensored edge in a movie about a girl who is turned into a murderous demon. And critics can usually see right through that shock value and the camp to see that there's not much to the movie besides that.

watching the preview, you can tell Diablo Cody had a blast writing the
material.

I think most "Juno" fans would be marking their calenders for when "Juno 2" is set to be released, not for a slasher movie starring Megan Fox in the role she was born to play: a demonic, man-eating slut.

I as well as most Juno fans will be marking our calenders.

Megan Fox is really not a huge draw for me, I guess. Maybe it's just because she's not my type. But Diablo Cody is. If she were in it, I might be more interested.

I was thoroughly disappointed to see this movie's lukewarm reviews on RT. I mean let's face it: if Megan Fox is playing a demented cannibalistic psychopath in a slasher movie written by Diablo Cody, I (as well as most Juno fans) will be marking our calendars.

Diablo Cody and the director of this both showed skill with "Juno" and "Girl Fight." But leave it to H-Wood to take emerging talent and water it down. Then throw in Fox, a studio with no talent to speak of.

Campy cult classic in the making? Yep. Megan Fox a lock for a Worst Actress nod? I'd hafta say...YEP!

I was kinda hoping for another good movie from Diablo Cody (cuz she's hot), and at first this didn't look that bad. But as the trailers trickled in...not so much. And that "I go both ways" joke? It's l-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-me!

GIVEN THAT ITS SCRIPT IS by an OSCAR® WINNING SCREENWRITER, IT WAS DIRECTED by a WOMAN, and ITS TV ADS SUGGESTED IT at LEAST HAD a SENSE of HUMOR ABOUT ITSELF, WE HAD PLANNED to HOLD OFF on ADDING a FORUM for JENNIFER'S BODY 'TILL the LAST MINUTE, JUST in CASE IT TURNED OUT NOT to be a LIKELY RAZZIE® CONTENDER...

THEN WE SAW an MTV BEHIND-the-SCENES SPECIAL on IT, WHICH SERVED to PROVE THAT, WHILE SHE MAY INDEED HAVE a SMOKIN' HOT BOD, STAR MEGAN FOX MAY WELL HAVE NOTHING MORE SUBSTANTIAL THAN SMOKE BETWEEN HER EARS...

AND THEN, MORE DECISIVELY, the REVIEWS STARTED COMING IN. THE FIRST HALF-DOZEN PLACED BODY SQUARELY in RAZZIE® TERRITORY -- and ANY ADDITIONAL REVIEWS ARE UNLIKELY to ELEVATE IT OUT of "ROTTEN" TERRITORY at R.T.

IF YOU WISH to DEFEND THE FILM, YOU CERTAINLY MAY -- BUT OTHER THAN at the BOX OFFICE (WHERE WE EXPECTED IT WOULD DO BERRY WELL -- and DIDN'T!) WE EXPECT THIS to BE ONE BODY LIKELY to ARRIVE D.O.A. (DISSED ON ACCOUNT) COME RAZZIE® NOMINATIONS TIME...

FOX: "Okay, who splattered RAZZberry jam all over my prom dress?!? You kinda jumped the gun, you know -- I'm technically NOT a Worst Actress 'winner'...yet!"
