Cheap Thrills was one of my favorite films to tour the festival circuit last year and now it's arriving in cinemas March 21st. But not before hitting VOD first…this month! In anticipation of this announcement, we've received a handful of new images to share, which you can find here
Drafthouse Films and Cinedigm, in partnership with leading Movies on Demand distributor iN DEMAND, announced today the film will be made available exclusively on the Movies On Demand platform of Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks cable systems beginning February 21st.
The directorial debut from E.L. Katz, 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.
