With Jenifer in the house things quickly fall apart for the detective's family life. Then he discovers that Jenifer has a very active libido and has targeted him. Then more of Jenifer's nature becomes apparent as she eats the family dog. Things continue to go downhill as the detective is both repulsed by Jenifer's behavior and enslaved to her passion. The downward spiral continues until the inevitable ending.
This is one of the best of the Master Of Horror series and may be the best of them all. The story is dark and disturbing. It is missing the cuteness that ruined some of the others in the series. The script is true to the original except the detective is given a happier home life so that he call fall even further during the story. There is a large amount of nudity and sexuality in this film. Had this been a theatrical release there would probably have been talk of an NC-17 rating for a couple of the scenes. All in all this is a very good horror film that gets to the viewer on multiple levels. Definitely check it out.
I could not help but notice the many similarities to David Cronenberg's Crash. There is an emphasis on the weird attraction we may feel towards some things that should repulse us. The nude & sex scenes show a heavy contrast between what is beautiful and what is disgusting and as it turns out, there is a thin line between the two.
I have read some other reviewer's opinions and they seem to state that their interpretation of Jenifer is as a monster or severely disfigured woman. Some even called her an "alien". My personal opinion is that she is none of the above. I think that would be missing the point of the film. I believe that Jenifer is not a human, but rather a manifestation of man's desire. Inevitably, all the men lose their wives, children, jobs, freedom, and eventually their lives. It is a cautionary tale to all stupid men, uh, well, I guess all men. The good news is that Frank pays for his stupidity in the end. Actually, things come around full circle. And I have to admit, I laughed.Read more ›
Directed by Dario Argento, the mastermind behind classics such as "Suspiria", "Inferno", and many other outstanding, timeless horror films, "Jenifer" is one of his best titles to date and is a great addition to his already stellar catalog of films. "Jenifer" begins by depicting a team of officers enjoying a delectable lunch in their police vehicle. Suddenly, Frank Spivey's lunch is interrupted when he witnesses a man dragging a young woman and attempting to decapitate the girl. Frank warns the man to cease in his actions, but the man refuses, simply stating "You don't know what she is" while proceeding to raise his weapon. Frank is left with no option other than to shoot the man. The only thing the man says before dying is "Jenifer".
Down at the station, no one is capable of gathering any information in regards to the young lady who Frank saved. The only information they have lies within a note the man had in his pocket that simply read "Jenifer". Jenifer appears normal when the viewer is only capable of seeing her body, a very fine toned, slender, attractive body; however Jenifer is not normal at all. All of the officers are shocked by Jenifer's appearance, stating that the girl must be deformed and mentally impaired, seeing how she is not capable of speaking and relies on simple grunts to communicate.Read more ›
