Directed by E.L. Katz
After down-and-out family man Craig (Pat Healy, COMPLIANCE) simultaneously loses his job and is served an eviction notice, he runs into his long-lost deadbeat pal Vince (Ethan Embry, EMPIRE RECORDS) at a local dive bar. As the two drink their troubles away, they are lured by a couple celebrating a birthday (ANCHORMAN’s David Koechner and THE INNKEEPER's Sara Paxton), who shell out obscene wads of cash to Craig and Vince in exchange for taking on harmless bets.The party continues to a strip club and eventually to the couple’s home, where the cash payoffs increase wildly as the challenges become more outrageous, hilarious, illegal and even downright inhuman.
A darkly comic thriller, CHEAP THRILLS follows the one-night descent of two friends participating in a series of escalating paid dares to entertain a wealthy couple with a twisted sense of humor.
Cast: Pat Healy, Ethan Embry, Sara Paxton, David Koechner
my new favorite
I could not take my eyes off the screen. Such gereat acting you al most forget its a movie!
great all around movie straight to the point so great plot great acting great script=5/5 skulls.
Loved this, it's got a very dark sense of humour, the cast are brilliant and there's a real tension to not knowing just how far things are going to go (plus the thought experiment of trying to figure out where your own lines would be). Brilliant, and one of the best things on Shudder.
That was wild as hell.
