New CANYONS Trailer Reveals a Terrible Movie with Lindsay Lohan and Porn Star James Deen

I was willing to give indie sexual thriller The Canyons after its first trailer promised a gritty, grindhouse feel, but the follow-up trailer for director Paul Schrader’s picture takes a whole new spin on things by playing up a 1950s melodramatic tone. Both trailers are clearly poking fun at the film itself with the first being more successful because it didn’t show any actual scenes of dialogue. They should have stuck with that plan. Principal actors Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen are unbearable for even this ninety-second trailer, so I can just imagine what sort of torture is in store for audiences when the indie film debuts “on an internet server of your choice.” Hit the jump to see for yourself.

Check out the new trailer below (via Heat Vision). If you make it through the whole thing, let me know how it ends:

Here’s the synopsis for The Canyons:

THE CANYONS is a contemporary L.A. noir from director Paul Schrader, writer Bret Easton Ellis, and producer Braxton Pope about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20′s and how one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence.
