Brief Synopsis:
A newly-possessed high-school cheerleader turns into a succubus who specializes in killing her male classmates. Can her best friend put an end to the horror?

This time with a brand new spanking soundtrack! And some other things.
I’ve always loved this film but I never liked the music all that much and it just a ran a little to long for my taste. Both of those are now changed to my liking.

I've also added back two deleted scenes that I feel like should never been cut.

During the editing I also just felt like some scenes were not needed or needed to be heavily trimmed. Essentiality I changed a whole lot more then I first started out. See my change list here for more detailed cuts.

Probably the biggest change I did was to cut out Jennifer's origin story cause that entire sequence just felt not needed to me. Not knowing is more fun then fully knowing everything but maybe that's just me.
Other Sources:
-Used Davinci Resolve for all of the editing / colour correction.
-Used YouTube for the new soundtrack.
Special Thanks:
To ArtisDead for the cover and insane amount of help for the overall edit, I could not have done it without him and his feedback and song suggestions.

You rule my dude.

To JasonFlippy for checking out an early cut and helping with his feedback.

I just finished watching Samael's edit, and I think they did an amazing job on it! The small story structure changes worked really nicely for this new version as did the minor edits to some of the dialog!

Where this edit really shines though is the incorporation of new music throughout the movie. The music changes were perfect and fit every scene they we added to!

Oh, and I have to give a special shout out to the inclusion of Near Dark as the show Jennifer is watching at the beginning of the movie. I love that movie and it seemed perfect for that scene!

I'm really glad I had the chance to watch this edit of Jennifer's Body, it was really impressive!

I did some previewing of Samael's edit and they were very receptive to feedback and made some small changes that kept the final product smooth and clean! Very impressive work.

The music changes are fantastic, my favorites being "Don't Fear The Reaper" at the beginning and "Heartstopper" at the end, but they're all really well chosen and work with the source.

If you weren't a big fan of Diablo Cody's dialogue, this edit does a pretty good job of minimizing the cringe factor and making this into a slightly scarier movie, while adding a very cool tone with the soundtrack.

Great edit, and easily replaces the original for me!
