Body Review


A night out turns deadly when three girls break into a seemingly empty mansion.

Body (2015) is an American psychological drama thriller movie that has a very small cast and is also known as Ceset. Directors, producers and writers Dan Berk (Block (2011), Dispatch (2014), Revenge for Jolly! (2012)) and Robert Olsen (Dispatch (2014), Armageddon Outta Here! (2008), Indigo Children (2012)) did a great job working together. Dan and Robert executed their first full-length movie extremely well with not many blemishes. The movie will make movie viewers think about if they were faced with the same situation as the girls, what will they do? I hope Dan and Robert continue to work together to bring their fans spectacular movies because there are not many people that can make amazing movies together.

Body revolves around three college friends who party a little too much on Christmas Eve and soon realizes that they are in a deep load of trouble. Holly, Cali, and Mel (Lauren Molina - Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011), Only a Switch (2015), One Another (2011)) are three college students. Cali (Alexandra Turshen - Boy Meets Girl (2014), The Handout Saint (2011), Grand Theft Auto V (2013)) persuade Holly and Mel to have a party at her uncle’s house after they becomes majorly bored while home on vacation. Holly (Helen Rogers - Jack Attack (2013), Block (2011), How to Be a Man (2013)) soon discovers clues that say Cali is not related to the owner. Cali admits to her friends that it is not her uncle’s house/mansion but, in fact, a family’s home that she babysits for. The girls concluded that they will stop smoking their pot, drinking wine, stop playing scrabble and leave the house. The groundskeeper Arthur (Larry Fessenden - Habit (1995), The Last Winter (2006), I Sell the Dead (2008), Stake Land (2010)) appears falls down a staircase after having an altercation with the girls. Guess what, Arthur dies, and so we have “Body.” The three girls are hysterical but come together to cover up the accident. Things soon began to take a turn as Arthur is not as dead as they thought, and the friends began disagreeing. The girls keep on making decisions that lead to a wrong turn with another problem following.

This psychological movie that introduced us to the characters so that we can connect with them and know who they are. I appreciate the few twists in the movie and how it shows what a person can do to stay out of prison. The movie also tests the bond of a lifelong friendship. The three girls have different perspectives on how to handle the situation they are in. The movie only has one jump scare, but it might leave you questioning your morals and values. The actors gave excellent performances in their own unique way. I gave this movie a seven because there was goofs, plot holes, and the storyline has been told many times although this storyline has a few events that set it apart from others.
