News broke recently that 2008 AVN Female Performer of the Year Sasha Grey will again be infront of the camera, but this time with her clothes on. Now, when I get news alerts rotating past my desk, when I see both “porn” and “horror” in the same title, I jump on that like Samuel L. Jackson on a paycheck.

Grey will play a TV news persona who is investigating the death of her stripper older sister. The flick will be titled Smash Cut and be directed by Lee Demarbre. The director has said that Grey will remain fully clothed throughout the film and that the only penetration will be from “knives and axes.”

The film will also star recognizable horror faces David Hess, Michael Berryman, Ray Sager, and Herschell Gordon Lewis. Plans are for the film to be seen on the Indie Film circuit before going to theaters in 2009. Now, not to be a Negative Nancy, but I think the odds of this thing finding any wide release are almost non-existent. Now, I’m more familiar with Grey’s previous work than I should be, and while she’s a hell of a porn star, I can’t say much about her acting. And the fact that she’ll remain fully clothed the entire time? Monumental mistake. That’s like the biggest mistake of all time. That is Japan attacking Pearl Harbor bad. I mean, wow. She’s a porn star. That’s like casting a ninja and not letting him kick someone in the face. That’s what they do!
