I know what you’re thinking, so I’ll address this right up front. Why in the world am I wasting your time with a trailer for another one of those “found footage” horror flicks? Truthfully, I have pretty high hopes for director Robert Nathan’s upcoming NC-17 genre effort “Lucky Bastard.” And, no, it has nothing to do with the fact that it’s set against the backdrop of the adult film industry. Okay, well, kind of. But not entirely.
I’m all for pushing boundaries, particularly since most horror flicks seem to offer up the same old thing time and time again. I’m not saying “Lucky Bastard” is one of those movies — after all, I haven’t seen it yet — but I think the premise is interesting enough to warrant a look. There you have it. I’ve justified to you why I write the things I do. I hope you’re happy.
Check out the official synopsis:
LUCKY BASTARD is the story of a shy young man who wins a contest to have sex with a famous porn star on an adult website. When the young man arrives at the porno house / set location, his every move is captured on the numerous reality television-style wallcams that are spread out everywhere in the house. It is the found footage from these cameras that tells the story of the inevitable and horrifying reality of what actually happened.
At the center of the story are: Mike (Don McManus), who owns the “Lucky Bastard” website; his top porn star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue); and Dave G. (Jay Paulson), the unsuspecting shy young man who wins the contest.
The “Lucky Bastard” employees treat their work matter-of-factly. Mike once clearly had more serious artistic ambitions, but now he runs the company and directs all of the “Lucky Bastard” website’s content. Ashley, the website’s most popular performer, initially refuses to participate because she knows the winner will be humiliated by the experience, but ultimately gives in when offered extra money. And the contest winner, Dave, an unassuming and shy young man, finds himself driven by shame and humiliation into committing the most horrifying acts imaginable.
Check out the NSFW trailer below. It’s a red band clip, so approach with caution if other folks are around. “Lucky Bastard” arrives in select theaters on February 14, 2014 — Valentine’s Day. A home video release should follow close behind.
