The full trailer for director Paul Schrader's indie thriller "The Canyons" has been released. The film stars Lindsay Lohan as the girlfriend of a controlling movie producer, played by porn actor James Deen, who begins an affair with a young actor from her past. The film is a pulpy story of sex and violence written by Bret Easton Ellis ("American Psycho"), but the blend of experimental/exploitation style and horrible acting doesn't really feel like it's going to win the film its intended cult status. "The Canyons" will be available on VOD and iTunes on August 2nd. It will also receive a limited release in theaters.
Watch the trailer after the jump.
"Christian is a young LA trust-fund dude who’s financing a horror film simply to keep his dad off his back about doing something with his life. He has been dating Tara for about a year — she was an aspiring actress/model who settled down with him when the reality of the business became apparent to her. She’s now just Christian’s bored plaything. Christian’s assistant Gina is casting the film with assistance from Tara. Gina is pushing Ryan, her boyfriend and struggling actor, for the lead. Unbeknownst to either Christian or Gina, Ryan and Tara were a couple three years ago. When Ryan came back into Tara’s life during the auditions for the movie, they reignited their affair. But Christian, a dangerous control-freak, finds out about the affair and starts playing cruel mind games with both Tara and Ryan, which escalate into an act of bloody violence."
