• “LUCKY BASTARD”: Terror and Porn Clash in NC-17 Horror Show


    When a porn site holds a contest that promises wild, on camera sex with one of its stars, Ashley Saint, as the prize, you can only imagine the gaggle of characters that apply for such an honor. The offers pour in like lava erupting from the Kilauea volcano, filling their inbox with a wide assortment of sexed up applicants. In an attempt to play it safe, they go with a down on his luck guy named Dave. He just lost his brother to cancer, served his country in the military and seems as good-natured as Doctor Dolittle in a fur-filled forest. What could go wrong?
