Can someone explain to me my odd fondness for Amy Smart? I mean, besides her whoopty-fucks in the Crank films? I’ve dug on Ms. Smart since her arc on “Felicity,” and she was great — though terribly miscast — in the short-lived “Smith.” I think she has a certain comfort factor, like Michael J. Fox or Alyson Hannigan or Sarah Chalke. She’s just likable, damnit. With or without clothes. And yet she’s usually relegated to second and third tier romantic comedy roles (Just Friends, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton).
Now, she’s headlining a couple of really bottom-dwelling flicks. Last week, we presented the trailer for the really spectacularly awful, but must-see-it anyway adult dance flick, Love N’ Dancing, alongside Billy freaking Zane. And now we have a trailer for another film that, like Love N’ Dancing, has been on the shelf for a bit (probably waiting for Crank 2 to elevate her status): Seventh Moon. It’s a horror movie that looks … I dunno. Not so good. The only item of note about the movie is that it’s directed by Eduardo Sanchez, who directed the original Blair Witch Project, and then kind of disappeared after Lions Gate ran the franchise into the dirt (anyone see Blair Witch 2)?
Here’s the trailer for Seventh Moon. It’s redband, though I don’t really know why.
