Lucky Bastard ( 2013 ) – Porn Horror Movie?

 

Porn Horror Movie

I sat down last night to watch a Found Footage film called Lucky Bastard – a film I had never heard of before but came highly recommended.

Turns out I was about to experience a porn horror movie in the Found Footage Style! I sat back and got comfortable…this was going to be a GOOD NIGHT…

Darn it!

My comfort was short lived as the site I picked to stream the film from decided to pile a ton of Malware on me setting off every alert I had in place on my computer!

Well, it seems I am not a lucky bastard!!!!

After a twenty minute break of making sure the Malware was not causing World War Three I got back to the film but streamed from a different site this time….

Originality

The film WAS set out as sort of a porn horror movie but please don’t let that put you off – the main emphasis is on a complete psycho.

It was a very original idea and this pleased me no end – nobody had really thought of doing this before.

The film starts off with your typical police crime scene video and there are a lot of bodies hanging about – shit’s gone down here!

The film then cuts into a private house camera system where two men are filming their own porno flick. A word of warning – it wasn’t a nice porno flick at all!!

To be honest it was a little to extreme for me and I thought the film was going to descend into a depraved sicko fest but thankfully it turned out to be nothing more than a muse!

This whole opening sequence was very original. Even though I felt a little disturbed by the scenes I still couldn’t stop watching it – this was good work from the director!

The Plot

Once the film gets over this initial shocking sequence of events it becomes a lot more engaging. It is based on a website ( named Lucky Bastard ) that is owned by a porn producer named Mike ( Don McManus ).

On this website a bunch of nerds are invited to apply for a competition in which one of them becomes a ‘lucky bastard’.

What this means is that one of them wins the right to nail a porn star actress on camera!

The winner of the competition this time around appears to be a nice and gentle man named of Dave ( Jay Paulson ). Now Dave wins the right to play about with Ashley ( Betsy Rue ) who is a well known internet porn star.

Ashley is not over the moon about this prospect as she has never done this sort of gig before. She likes to work with professionals and nothing less will do! She is offered a wad of cash and she agrees to take part in the film.

So we end up with the lucky bastard Dave and the porn crew travelling to a remote house to film a bit of naughty stuff – what could go wrong?

I Liked it!

This porn horror movie had guts and it wasn’t afraid to ‘bare all’ in it’s scenes. Yes there was quite a bit of nudity and porn but this didn’t take anything away from the film’s horror plot.

I’m not going to go into detail because I don’t want to hit any spoiler alerts but this film got pretty damn brutal.

I expected the acting to be much like the acting in the porn industry – crap! But it wasn’t and every character was really watchable. The interaction between the characters was believable and the humor was well thought out at times ( look out for the Psycho horror scene with a dildo instead of a knife! ).

It all came together well and made for a really enjoyable Found Footage experience!

Conclusion

Don’t get me wrong – I would never usually go for a porn horror movie of any sort. I like to keep my horror serious and as dark as possible.

But Lucky Bastard had a lot more to offer than just porn – it worked well as a film.

The camera work was great and the overall appearance of the film looked really polished. I didn’t once lose interest in the story line even when the ‘porn’ stuff was going down.

A well thought out Found Footage film – one of the most original I have come across so far!
