E.L. Katz's directorial debut CHEAP THRILLS is making its way to VOD tomorrow, March 21st, and we've got an all new trailer to celebrate the occasion—you an dig on that below! It's a fantastic film that shines a light on just how far some people are willing to go for a few bucks; some of the shit that these guys do for some quick cash will make your stomach turn. Definitely give it a watch when you get the chance, it's a hell of a flick.
CHEAP THRILLS stars Pat Healy, Ethan Embry, Sara Paxton and David Koechner. It goes like this:
Cheap Thrills follows Craig (Pat Healy), 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). The two friends are roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner) along with his mysterious wife (Sara Paxton). 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.
CHEAP THRILLS was acquired by Drafthouse Films, in partnership with Snoot Entertainment, following its world premiere at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the "Midnighters Audience Award." Cinedigm holds the home entertainment distribution rights, including DVD, Blu-ray, VOD, and digital platforms.
