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
Much better than expected, and the “finger” scene had me watching through my fingers. Well paced, well acted, and definitely has some disturbing moments.
Once the fun starts it like REALLY starts....honestly as messed up as it was I like it. Nice find on Shudder!
I loved it from beginning to end!
Another good movie find from Shudder!
Not as nerve wracking as I hoped but all together a well acted and entertaining twisted little story. Left me wanting to know more about the couple and their background. I feel like they definitely lied about not doing this before; especially since they were so calm during everything.
