Cheap Thrills
E.L. Katz, 2013
USA | 85 minutes

New York Premiere!

Just when it seems like his day couldn’t possibly get any worse—he’s already been served with an eviction notice and laid off—new-dad Craig (Pat Healy) and an old schoolmate (Ethan Embry) are approached at a bar by a pair of filthy-rich thrill-seekers (David Koechner and Sara Paxton) looking to spice up their anniversary celebrations. What begins as a night of innocent enough boozy fun devolves into a series of increasingly disturbed "games." While not a horror film in the conventional sense, this memorably twisted and darkly hilarious portrait of the extremes to which down-on-their-luck people will go for quick cash is actually quite terrifying. A Drafthouse Films release.
