The premise of “Bodies Bodies Bodies” is simple enough: A group of 20-somethings gather at a mansion for a “hurricane party” in which a natural weather phenomenon is sufficient excuse to consume copious amounts of alcohol and other drugs. The group soon decides to play the film’s titular game, a cross between Mafia and hide-and-seek, in which a “killer” picks people off in the dark. When one of the players is found with their throat slashed, however, the partygoers realize a real-life murderer is among them.
The 2021 Oscar nominee is a refreshingly modern tale of life and love.
