TV Guide Online points out that the horror movie The Forsaken, which stars Kerr Smith (Dawson’s Creek, The Broken Hearts Club) and Brendan Fehr (Roswell), seems to have a decidedly homoerotic subtext. Smith insists that “there’s no gay twist in the movie,” yet the female love interest, played by Izabella Miko, has hardly any lines, while Smith and Fehr apparently get lots of eye contact and say things like “I heard a noise, and I was worried about you.” Further eye candy is provided by Johnathon Schaech (That Thing You Do!) and Simon Rex (Jack & Jill, not to mention Young, Hard and Solo #3). Smith continues to insist, “There’s nothing like that. It’s not a bad thing—I’m just saying, that was not our intention.”
