Lucky Bastard, the NC-17 “found footage” horror-thriller film set against the backdrop of the adult film industry, will be released on February 14 in New York and March 7 in LA.

Lucky Bastard is a found footage thriller about a porn website run by Mike (Don McManus). Jay Paulson plays Dave, an eager young fan given a chance to sleep with the fabulous Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue), but everyone gets more than they bargained in the seemingly mild-mannered Dave…to gruesome results.

Gotham-based indie film distribution company CAVU Pictures will be releasing the film, which stars Jay Paulson (“Mad Men”), Don McManus (Grand Piano, Lovelace, The Congress), and Betsy Rue (My Bloody Valentine). It will be released at the Cinema Village in New York and at Laemmle’s NoHo 7 in LA, and will expand into additional cities throughout the spring.

Check out the trailer and poster inside.

“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.

Lucky Bastard is rated NC-17 by the MPAA for explicit sexual content.

    I like the premise, and the first third of the trailer was pulling me in. But it’s the porn backdrop for me that literally pulls me right back out. I just can’t take it seriously. It’s like watching another bad MTV reality show.
