What a Crazy Trailer

March 6th, 2010 | Jonathan Gray

Courtesy of The Huffington Post’s pre-Oscars “Worst Movies Ever Made” list, comes this spectacularly awful trailer:

HuffPo notes, “it sets you up to think you’re going to watch a teen film about dancing your way through the loss of a parent, but then it calls you a sucker and whips out some demons,” but the trailer doesn’t so much change directions as much as it adds a whole new layer. The result is a seemingly hilarious (and hilariously badly acted) genre hybrid of inspirational dance film and horror. The demons don’t interrupt the protagonist’s therapeutic dance, after all; they give it new (cosmic/spiritual) meaning.

I still don’t know why the title insists on spelling “see” with a “c”, either, though I’m wondering if they were paying whoever did the title card by the letter. Or maybe the film was pitched via text message. So gloriously bad, I’m almost inclined to watch it.

    Thankyou Chuck, for that link: there’s such a great selection of reviews there — one could teach a class on audiences with just that batch :-)

    It´s really a strange trailer. Who´s that movie made for? Who loves to see dancing young girls usually soesn´t want to see demons at the same time, and who likes horror doesn´t watch dance movies.
