"This will not end well." See what happens when the adult film industry and "found footage" mix in two trailers for Lucky Bastard, the upcoming NC-17 horror-thriller from CAVU Pictures. When the adult website Lucky Bastard runs a contest giving the winner a night with a hot porn star, the outcome turns from fantasy to horror in a deadly nightmare no one could possibly have expected. The film will be released in limited theaters on February 14th in New York, March 7th in LA, and will expand into additional cities throughout the spring. In addition, you can also take a look at the latest poster.
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.
