Jennifer’s Body (2009)

When a demon takes possession of her, high-school hottie Jennifer (Megan Fox) turns a hungry eye on guys who never stood a chance with her before. While evil Jennifer satisfies her appetite for human flesh with the school’s male population, her nerdy friend, Needy (Amanda Seyfried), learns what’s happening and vows to put an end to the carnage.

Note on Costumes

Costumes are very much encouraged! However, please make sure that your costume does not portray a stereotyped image of a culture or group of people (aka cultural appropriation). This includes but is not limited to things like appropriated ceremonial regalia and cultural hairstyles (dreadlocks, afros, etc.). In addition, please avoid costumes that may be offensive or triggering to any racial, ethnic or religious group, or people with disabilities or illnesses.

We believe in your unlimited creativity, and we want to host spaces where everyone feels as safe and supported as possible. If you’re unsure if your costume crosses these lines, please get in touch with us and we’d be happy to provide some guidance. We reserve the right to deny entry to people who violate these boundaries.
