In most horror movies, beautiful girls get chased by crazy serial killers. But in the new film Jennifer’s Body, the tables are turned, and Megan Fox plays a gorgeous high schooler who gets possessed by the devil and starts terrorizing her male classmates.

Megan Fox is best known for being the babe in the Transformers movies. Her beauty and sex appeal have earned her comparisons to Angelina Jolie, but Jason isn’t sure she can really act. Find out why Devan thinks Jennifer’s Body might be the movie to change his mind.

Devan:  So Jason, have you joined the cult of Megan Fox?

Jason:  I haven’t yet joined that cult. I don’t know. I don’t feel like she’s necessarily the next Angelina Jolie, etcetera.

Devan:  Do you think what separates her…like do you think she’s as attractive as Angelina Jolie, or is it the acting skills?

Jason:  It’s the acting skills, and I just feel like she hasn’t reached her full potential yet. Like I’m interested in Megan Fox, and I’m really psyched to see Jennifer’s Body. But I think from the clips of it that I’ve seen, it seems like she may be able to mature yet.

Devan:  Yeah. I mean this definitely is a bit of a breakthrough for her because she’s just been in those Transformers action films but this one’s got a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor, and she gets to play this stuck up babe who turns out to be a man-eater, you know…

Jason:  Right. Literally.

Devan:  Literally a man-eater. But it’s supposed to be really funny, so maybe we’ll get to see a little bit of the potential in Megan Fox.

A lot of people love Megan Fox and think she’s the next Angelina Jolie. But Jason doesn’t believe she’s reached her full potential yet. According to Devan, Jennifer’s Body shows off more of her acting skills. The movie is an interesting combination of horror and comedy. It includes lots of tongue-in-cheek humor. Fox’s role in the film is more challenging and complex than anything she’s done before.

In the film, Fox plays a possessed high school student who murders her male classmates and eats their flesh. (Gross!) A beautiful woman who treats men poorly is sometimes called a “man-eater.” But in this movie, Fox’s character actually eats men. She is truly a man-eater!

Do you think Megan Fox has the potential to become a great actress? Have you reached your full potential yet?

@miss royalito, I added you, just confirm it. When I say "it doesn't hit the theater yet" it means that, the Jennifer's body is not in the theater yet. it's coming soon, all of us(in my place) haven't seen it yet.  Hope you understand, I have a big problem on my english too:( sorry for the late reply.
