The Neon Demon is a horror film about a young model, played by Elle Fanning, who navigates the heightened glamor and extreme depravity of the fashion industry. The film has a canny meta quality that blends modeling's fetishized violence against women with the standard tropes of horror films. All of this violence is stylized as if it were a magazine shoot. The models engage in the jealous cattiness that often consumes young women in a fickle industry, culminating in gorgeously filmed murder scenes. There are artfully shot sequences featuring the aspiration and destruction of eating disorders, imagined with as much gore as possible. Jena Malone appears as a makeup artist, and Mad Men's Christina Hendricks plays an older industry professional. The models themselves ease past all of the murder and violence they observe, being too jaded and bored to be surprised by the extreme thrust upon them or even the larger statement that this film makes.
