Megan Fox has appeared in a few horror movies over the years, and here’s each one ranked worst to best. Outside of Megan Fox’s handful of horror movie outings, the star has been a well-known pop-culture figure for many years. Some of her more notable roles include the likes of Mikaela Banes in the Transformers movies or Reagen Lucas on the sitcom New Girl.
As of late, Fox’s name has mainly returned to the forefront in respect to her personal life. However, since her acting debut in 2001, she’s had a fairly busy career. In fact, she’s tried out a role in just about every genre. As such, Megan Fox’s TV and movie roles have been fairly diverse.
In addition to her aforementioned parts, she’s appeared in everything from the Olsen twin-led film Holiday in the Sun to a guest appearance on Two and a Half Men and the recent, live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies. Even so, arguably her most interesting roles have been in the horror movies she’s appeared in throughout her career, and here’s how they rank.
3. Rogue (2020)
Coming in last is the 2020 action-thriller Rogue. Directed and co-written by M.J. Basset, its main players are a group of seasoned mercenaries – led by Fox’s tough-as-nails Sam O’Hara. The team faces off against violent rebels and a ferocious lioness, though Rogue has more of an action vibe than one of pure horror. Still, the Megan Fox-fronted horror movie makes this ranking because of what the lioness-driven portion does for the story. It adds a monster movie layer, where the characters also have to fight for survival against the ever-increasing danger, made up of both humans and a very angry lion. Plus, the lioness seems to be an almost genetically enhanced or superpowered creature, posing much more of a threat than a real-life lion would. The Megan Fox action-horror movie offers some commendable social commentary on lion poaching and has some likable performances. But, overall, Rogue lacks substance and the depth it tries to achieve.
2. Night Teeth (2021)
2021’s Night Teeth ranks second on Megan Fox’s horror movies ranking. From director Adam Randall, it’s a vampire-themed thriller that follows a college student attempting to bring in some extra cash as an LA chauffeur. Of course, things don’t go as planned; his clients end up being vampires on a city-wide rampage. Megan Fox plays a small role vampire named Grace but only has a minor part in the film. She briefly appears around the midway point and is then never seen again. As many viewers have already noted, this Netflix horror movie leaves a lot to be desired. It lacks energy and invention, and it’s an odd creative choice for Fox’s Night Teeth role to be so small. After all, she’s a well-known actress and delivers one of the most engaging performances.
1. Jennifer’s Body (2009)
Despite originally receiving a negative reception, 2009’s Jennifer’s Body is easily Megan Fox’s best horror movie. Directed by Karyn Kusama, this dark comedy/horror flick sees Megan Fox play Jennifer Check, who slowly transforms from a popular teenage cheerleader into a demonically possessed, human-devouring murderess. One of the two main characters, she preys on male classmates after she is victimized by a rock group. In heavily satirical fashion, Jennifer’s Body uses symbolism and a purposely over-the-top tone to drive home themes about what it’s like to be and come of age as a woman in modern society. It also manages to be a very funny film – with sharp wit and irreverent black comedy sprinkled throughout. It’s a solid watch for horror fans, especially those who enjoy dark humor. Plus, Fox’s casting as Jennifer’s Body’s bloodthirsty, scheming and emotionally vapid namesake character is a perfect creative fit. It might just be her best performance to date and she really adds to the film’s distinct tone.
