Believe the hype, folks...CHEAP THRILLS lives up to the promise of its title.
Now available on the Movies On Demand platform of Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks, and hitting select theaters and digital VOD platforms on March 21, the E.L. Katz-helmed CHEAP THRILLS is a dark, disturbing and, at times, hilariously twisted gem of a film that won over fans and audiences alike during SXSW that truly deserves the acclaim it has garnered, and today we have a new slap-happy clip from the film to share with you below.
So would you slap a strippers ass for $200? You don't have to answer that...you've probably done it for free! But in this latest clip from CHEAP THRILLS we see stars Ethan Embry and Pat Healy being urged to get a bit naughty by David Koechner, which leads to some trouble for Mr. Healy's character Craig.
Starring Pat Healy, Ethan Embry, Sara Paxton and David Koechner, CHEAP THRILLS goes like this:
Cheap Thrills follows Craig (Pat Healy, Compliance), a struggling family man who loses his low-wage job and is threatened with eviction. In an effort to delay facing the music at home, he heads to a local bar and encounters an old friend (Ethan Embry, Empire Records). The two friends are roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner, Anchorman 2) along with his mysterious wife (Sara Paxton, The Inkeepers). The couple engages the two friends in a series of innocent dares in exchange for money over the course of the evening, with each challenge upping the ante in both reward and boundaries. It seems like easy and much needed money, but the couple's twisted sense of humor pushes just how far Craig and his friend are willing to go for money and cheap thrills.
