Review: Masters of Horror: Jenifer (2005)

Masters of Horror
IMDB rate: 6,4
Genre: Monster

Time for another Masters of Horror movie! This time it's the movie Jenifer (isn't it bothering that it isn't called Jennifer instead of Jenifer?). Jenifer is officially the fourth episode of season 1 of Masters of Horror, but again, my DVD's are in a different order than the episodes are. So I guess this is the fifth movie for me! 

While parked in a remote spot lunching Chinese food with his partner, Detective Frank Spivey saves a disfigured woman called Jenifer from being sliced with a meat cleaver by a deranged homeless man. He flees sorry for the retarded Jenifer, and takes her from an insane asylum and brings her home. Frank becomes obsessed for Jenifer, feeling lust and attraction for her lascivious body. When he realizes that she is a human beast, he moves with her to an isolated old cabin in the woods, with tragic consequences.

Well now my thoughts about this movie... it was a very weird movie, and I'm not really sure what to think of it. The acting is not very good. The main actor is not too bad, the girl Jenifer neither, but the other actors are horrible. Your cat just got eaten by a weird girl, your reaction should be a bit different.
The worst thing about this movie are the reactions of the people, it's just not very natural. That a girl is disfigured it's possible, but those eyes are definitely not human. But everyone in this movie seems to fail realizing this.

The thing I liked about this movie was the music, it was very scary. It was perfect for the scene, the girl was seducing a guy without showing her face, and there was a very creepy "lalala lalala" going on, definitely perfect for the scene because you knew what would happen.

The make-up of the girl was done amazingly, I had to search for the actress (Carrie Fleming) to find out what she really looked like, because her make-up didn't give anything away! Her voice is a bit weird, she sounded a bit like a Pokemon, unless she had sex, then she was the hulk.

I'm not quite sure what the story's purpose is, the girl is scary and is not very human. She does like sex though, that's for sure. Other than that, I think that the moral of the story is that guys think with their dick.

Jenifer is not a very special movie. It's kinda boring and there are only two or three good moments in it. It's has some good gore in it, and a few shocking scenes but overall the story is kinda dumb. 

My personal rate: 5/10
