Starring Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen, Lauren Molina, and Larry Fessenden
Directed by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen
Not exactly a horror film, Body gets its thrills from the ever-changing dynamics between the film's three young actresses. The film does a nice job of making the emotional shifts of all the characters relevant, believable, and critical to the plot. While the plot works, the three actresses themselves leave a little to be desired. None of them are particularly disappointing, but I couldn't help but think that in the hands of slightly more adept directors, the performances and the lensing of the film itself would've been a bit more crisp and clean. Even at a quick seventy minutes, the film takes a bit to get rolling which had me wondering if it would've fared a bit better as part of a horror anthology or something of the like. However, Body is still an enjoyable, fun romp, but I can't help but think it had the potential for something more.
The RyMickey Rating: B-
