Audience question: I watched this movie when I was 14, and it was kind of like the first time that I was like, “Oh, shit. I think I’m gay.” So I just want to ask, do you think this is also like a movie about sexuality and sexual exploration?
Karyn Kusama: It was so crucial that the reveal was that, actually, Needy and Jennifer had a sometimes-intimate relationship, and that that is part of why it’s so emotionally entangled. It’s not just BFFs. It’s kind of more complex than that. I felt like I got a lot of blowback for embracing the eroticism of that relationship, but for me that was part of the film’s identity. I’ve always embraced the idea of queerness, and I just feel like their relationship was not made more titillating for a young male audience. It was made more interesting for everyone and for the actors playing those characters, because they had a somewhat secret but deeply close relationship.
Megan Fox: I think for me at least, I knew that this scene was not going to be taken for what it was intended to be going into shooting. So there was the pressure of almost anticipating the disappointment. I think I said this on the press tour or before, that the entire trailer was probably gonna be just that scene of me making out with Amanda, and it would be clickbait like, “Megan Fox’s First Lesbian Scene!” So I think it made it hard to experience it the way I would have wanted to, because I was preoccupied with “What is this really going to be turned into?” Which, of course, it was. It was completely misunderstood. From the test, were screenings the bros were like, “Yeah!” and bro-ing out over it?
Kusama: The irony is that I think that the scene is both erotic and really scary, because at this point you see Jennifer’s power and so we’re not sure where this is exactly going.
Fox: Maybe that’s where they thought there should be more boobs.
Jennifer’s Body (2009) dir. Karyn Kusama

Bergman defines “The Hour of the Wolf” as
“The time between midnight and dawn when most people die, when sleep is deepest, when nightmares are most palatable. It is the hour when the sleepless are pursued by their sharpest anxieties, when ghosts and demons hold sway. The hour of the wolf is also the hour when most children are born.“

I've said this before and I'll say it again: it's more important to know and understand fully why something is harmful than it is to drop everything deemed problematic. It's performative and does nothing. People wonder why nobody has critical thinking skills and this is part of it because no one knows how to simousltansly critique and consume media. You need to use discernment.
