16. AND SOON THE DARKNESS (2010)The marketing team that worked last year’s straight-to-DVD crapfest And Soon The Darkness knew exactly what they were selling.
Before any trailers debuted or critics’ screenings were scheduled, promotional images of stars Amber Heard and Odette Yustman palling around in teeny two-piece bikinis were circulated throughout the film blogosphere. As a result, a publicist could’ve told us that And Soon The Darkness was a musical choreographed by Richard Simmons and we still would’ve been clamoring to see it for ourselves.
Turns out, it’s merely another shitty genre remake devoid of fresh ideas and made by folks unwilling to dupe the ridiculously hot actresses into doing nudity for “artistic” reasons. Just look at the pic above; has the movie’s director, Marcos Efron, never heard of topless sunbathing?
