(2009) dir Karyn Kusama w/Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody, Johnny Simmons, J.K. Simmons, Amy Sedaris [102 min; tbd]

Back in 2009, Karyn Kusama (poised to storm this Oscar season with her Nicole Kidman cop drama Destroyer) and Diablo Cody (likely headed to Broadway with the A.R.T.’s Jagged Little Pill) joined forces to create this excellent feminist horror film. Nerdy teenager Anita (Seyfried) must delve into the world of the occult when her best friend, popular cheerleader Jennifer (Fox), develops an unholy taste for (male) human flesh. Anita races to discover what has led Jennifer to this fate in an attempt to stem the tide of blood that has taken over her town.

Tonight’s screening is presented by Strictly Brohibited and will be followed by a conversation about the film. Strictly Brohibited is a Boston-area screening series that encourages women and genderqueer movie lovers to engage with film both on the screen and behind the camera. In an effort to foster a supportive community, Strictly Brohibited regularly hosts screenings and discussions held without male-identified audience members. For this special screening, however, everyone is invited – though during the discussion to follow preference will be given to questions and comments from female and female-identifying guests.
