What happens when you put several rich twenty-somethings in a remote mansion during a storm with no cell service? A lot of mayhem. The kids, out of boredom decide to play a dark-styled game “bodies bodies bodies” (think a more perverted version of hiding and seek), and things soon spiral out of control. With a murderer in their midst, trust and relationships between the “friends” plummet as the search for the real killer commences. Bodies Bodies Bodies is chock-full of awkward interactions, betrayals, fake friends, and agonizing social dynamics as the movie is primed to bring an equal share of laughs and unbridled terror to your screens.
Dutch actress, writer, and director Halina Reijn is behind the film, while the screenplay is written by Sarah DeLape. David Hinojosa and Ali Herting serve as executive producers. In a bid to make your viewing experience a lot less complicated, we’ve come up with a guide for the most important characters in the film. Enough said, let’s get to it!
Pete Davidson as David
Pete Davidson’s full star power is on show here in the role of David, a rich kid. It’s his character who decides to invite his group of friends to his father’s secluded mansion for a night of partying, drugs, drinking, and frolicking. In an attempt to beat off the raging storm outside, the attendees decide to play a game “bodies bodies bodies” which would ultimately turn out to be one of the worst decisions they could have made.
When Pete Davidson isn’t getting tattoos in the name of love or globe-trotting, he is hard at work as a comedian/actor. He is best known for co-writing and starring Scott in the semi-autobiographical film The King of Staten Island. Davidson is also famous for the eight-season NBC late-night sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live. He has also appeared in leading supporting roles in films like The Suicide Squad, Set It Up, The Dirt, Big Time Adolescence, What Men Want, and I Want You Back.
Amandla Sternberg as Sophie
Amandla Stenberg embodies the role of Sophie to perfection. Seen as the keeper of the rules to the game “bodies bodies bodies”, the freshly sober Sophie arrives uninvited with her new girlfriend Bee to find her friends perched poolside at the mansion. Stenberg spoke to Our Source about her character saying:
“Something that I admire about my character is if she’s feeling something, if she wants something, if she wants to say something, she does it. She goes for it, with not a ton of thought, necessarily. But I think that makes her very passionate and open and honest, and it can also be a double-edged sword. It can also be very dangerous.”
Amanda Sternberg is well known for her role as Alana Beck in the film Dear Evan Hansen which was adapted from the musical. She was first thrust into prominence for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games and later would star in films like the YA romance Everything, Everything, and the timely drama film The Hate U Give.
