Crazy red-band trailer for black comedy Cheap Thrills is like The Hangover meets Saw

Well, this looks suprisingly fun.

I hadn't heard of CHEAP THRILLS until today, but after seeing the trailer it looks like it could be a dark horse for early 2014. Starring David Koechner (ANCHORMAN), Pat Healy (RESCUE DAWN), Sara Paxton (THE INNKEEPERS), and an almost unrecognizeable Ethan Embry (CAN'T HARDLY WAIT), this black comedy/thriller looks like a mash-up of "would you like to play a game?" SAW and the excessive antics of THE HANGOVER, which makes for a pretty compelling premise. Take a look and then we'll talk about this.

Dollar if you watch this:

Yeah, it's got some low rent qualities, but that might actually work in its favor. The film debuted at SXSW earlier this year and has garnered some good buzz since then. I dig the whole "what would you do for money" aspect, which starts off as a fun dare game and turns into a much deadlier one with higher stakes. I don't know that CHEAP THRILLS will change lives, but if it can live up to what it teases, then I'm game for a 90-minute distraction.

CHEAP THRILLS is set for release on March 21, 2014.

I'm in, that looks like it could get pretty dark with some comedy mixed into it.

Saw "Cheap Thrills" last August during the Fantasia Festival in Montreal! It's pretty damn good! There's a bunch of comedic elements but also some darker tones in this.
