Canyons

Oh Lindsay. What happened? Such potential thrown away.

The Canyons is written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) and directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, American Gigolo) so from that you would expect it to have some watchability.

However, the trailer makes it seem like a made for TV movie and Lohan appears to be phoning this one in. Maybe it is just a bad trailer and the film itself will be something worth watching?

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.

The film also stars Gus Van Sant, Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks.

It is going to take a bit more convincing for me to want to see this.

Am I wrong? Do you think this looks good?

The Canyons” will open in New York City on August 2nd, and will also be available on the same day on VOD and iTunes.

Trailer is NSFW due to nudity.
