Flashdance vs. the Devil

Man this is going to tick off the Devil

77225_aaSo, who is up for a Christian fundamentalist dance movie? Surprisingly, it doesn’t star or have anything to do with Kirk Cameron. This time around, the dancer isn’t trying to save the rec center from the evil developer; she’s trying to save your soul from the fires of Hell. Which is kind of funny because many fundamentalists think dancing will lead to Hell. Prepare to be blown away by the acting. Feast your eyes on C Me Dance: A dance that shines through darkness.

C Me Dance is about a ballerina named Sheri who has a life-threatening rare blood disease that gets healed through prayer. After Sheri gets her miracle she has the ability to lead people to God, but this doesn’t sit well with Satan.

 

If Sheri is going to defeat the Devil with dance, she is going to need to be a maniac, maniac on the floor.  She’ll have to dance like she’s never danced before. God help her, she may even need to lock the rhythms to the beat of her heart, changing woman into life. She’ll need to dance into the danger zone when a dancer becomes a dance. But if she’s not careful it will cut her like a knife, when the gift becomes the fire. Sheri could easily find herself on a wire between will and what will be.

OK, I’ll stop now. I say we skip this turd and go watch Flashdance again.

I don’t care if she didn’t do the dancing, I still love me some Jennifer Beals.

  1. From the preview, it looks like a whole generation of fans who didn’t get to watch Buffy, may actually enjoy it.

  4. ha! awesome Lava!

    She didn’t do ANY of the dancing? Then who’s awesome ass was that?

    Also, I’m pretty sure (in the music video) the only other woman there was the chick from Dirty Dancing. You know, Johnny’s partner? She’s actually a dancer in real life…

    I want to make a chart of six degrees of separation just for dancing movies…

  8. Actually it was a actress named Marine Jahan who body doubled Jennifer Beals for most of the dancing. They shot Jennifer Beals for the close up shots and some of the simple dance moves.
