Lucky Bastard (2014) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review[ Movie Page: Lucky Bastard (2014) ]
Lucky Bastard (2014) is the first movie that Robert Nathan directed. He is mostly known for his work as a writer and producer. I am sorry but I think this director needs more practice at directing off screen before he directs another movie. This movie contains full on nudity scenes, a lot of sexual talk regarding oral and anal sex, gore, violence, bad language and some gruesomeness.
Lucky Bastard is a found footage film about a website named Lucky Bastard that gives the viewers an opportunity to have sex on screen with one of the actresses on their web site. Mike (Don McManus - Under the Hollywood Sign, Dark Around the Stars, The Maze Runner) is the person who runs the website and also is one of the people who helped Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue - Book of Fire, The Mentalist, Groupie) pick the winner. The lucky bastard who wins will have sex with her while being filmed. Ashley is hesitant about having sex with a complete stranger but Mike talks her through it and reminds her that the money will be worth it.
Dave (Jay Paulson - Burning Annie, Waiting River, Imaginary Heroes) is the lucky winner and gives the Lucky Bastard team more than they imagined. Dave got embarrassed during a filming session when he unexpectedly ejaculated while Ashley touched his leg and kissed him. Everyone in the room laughed at him because they did not begin to have intercourse at that point. Soon after Dave lets out his other side which is captured on all the cameras in the house. Death came unexpectedly to almost everyone in different ways. Who survived? Dave turned out to be a lunatic after all and not a shy guy that everyone thought he was.
It was too erotic for me. I am not into these style movies with full on sexual scenes. I like that this found footage film does not have the shaky hand effect to it and it seems like a movie. I also like that there was a lot of attention to details while filming the movie but the script was done poorly or maybe the script was good but the movie was executed poorly. Either way, the movie failed for me. Some may like this movie but then why watch this movie with murder included when you can just get a straight out sexual movie of your liking.

Lucky Bastard is a "found footage" thriller about a porn website run by Mike (Don McManus) that invites fans to have sex with porn stars. Jay Paulson plays Dave, an eager young fan given a chance to have sex with the fabulous Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue). But everyone gets more than they bargained for in the seemingly mild-mannered Dave... with gruesome results. The film is captured by the "Lucky Bastard" porn cameras for a fresh take on the "found footage" genre.
