Ever wonder what it would be like to sleep with a porn star? On the surface it sounds fun, but think of the possible repercussions. Lucky for you there’s Lucky Bastard, the new NC-17 “found-footage” horror film from CAVU Pictures opening Valentine’s Day weekend at Cinema Village. Through it’s pseudo-documentary/reality television style Lucky Bastard lets you experience the thrill and fallout of such an event from the safety of your theater seat.

Don’t fret, FP will also be giving away a pair tickets at our event on Tuesday! Tickets will be good for any of the screenings during it’s run at Cinema Village.

A little more info on the film…

 LUCKY BASTARD is the found-footage story of a pornographic website that sponsors a contest for its subscribers—a contest in which the prize is having sex with a porn star. The entire film is shot from the point of view of the website’s cameras recording the on-screen and behind-the-scenes action. 

 
At the center of the story are: porn star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue); Mike (Don McManus), who owns the “Lucky Bastard” website; and Dave G. (Jay Paulson), the unsuspecting subscriber who wins the contest. The “Lucky Bastard” employees treat their work matter-of-factly. Mike once clearly had more serious artistic ambitions; now he shoots the “Lucky Bastard” website’s content. Ashley, his most popular performer, initially refuses to participate. She dismisses the contest as “sick,” knowing that the winner will eventually be humiliated by the experience. Ashley views herself as an entertainer supporting her two children; the contest is nothing she would call “adult entertainment.” Nevertheless, she gives in to Mike. The young contest winner, Dave G., quickly discovers himself to be a pawn in a game of commerce. When, as Ashley predicted, he becomes humiliated, his personality is transformed and he seeks revenge on his tormentors. In this world, where everyone is safe within its borders, an outsider poses the ultimate danger. Those who humiliated him will discover that humiliation as entertainment, now an American pastime, has consequences they could never have expected.

As a guy who managed an Adult Video store for 5 years, who also just so happens to be a huge horror fan, you can understand why this film speaks to me. I’m excited, to say the least!

Lucky Bastard is only playing for one week at the Cinema Village so make sure you mark your calendars!

FPNYC IDW Convention Sketchbook Twitter Giveaway

New York Comic-Con is coming up, and so are dozens of regional shows throughout the country.  And what’s the biggest thing going at conventions these days… other than cosplay?  Meeting and greeting our favorite creators!  For many of you, it’s also a chance to commission sketches by some of the most talented artists in the world as well.

These sketches tend to look kinda poopy when you hand the creator your grocery list and say to the artist, “Yo, draw the Punisher on the back of this for me.” Or something to that effect.  That’s why IDW Publishing created their own Convention Sketchbook.

Using the same high-quality paper from our prestigious hardcover collections, your sketches will look fantastic while being protected from creases and exterior contaminants.

On Monday August 20th 2012 we’re going to give away 5 of these sketchbooks to 5 Twitter followers!  How do you enter to win one?  Follow the simple steps below:

Hey @FPNYC Please enter me to win an @IDWPublishing Convention Sketckbook!

  • Um. That’s about it!

We’ll be picking five winners on Monday 8/20/12 at 5pm EDT.  Good Luck!
