About the Movie

CHEAP THRILLS follows Craig (Pat Healy, COMPLIANCE), 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, EMPIRE RECORDS). The two friends are roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner, ANCHORMAN 2) along with his mysterious wife (Sara Paxton, THE INNKEEPERS). 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: You should watch it as a twisted comedy. Those who do will be rewarded, especially by the film's outlandish final image. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Mar 27, 2014

Fresh: Let's just say it takes a dim view of human nature that seems well supported by the evidence, and that if you have an appetite for fatalistic, dirty-minded gore you won't be disappointed. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Mar 28, 2014

Fresh: This is not a movie for everybody, but that assessment is not exactly intended as a thumbs down. Alarming thrills are guaranteed. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Mar 27, 2014

Fresh: Screenwriters David Chirchirillo and Trent Haaga pose a simple question -- how much will a person degrade himself to make ends meet? -- but it's a potent one, at least for those of us who ponder it every Monday through Friday. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Apr 10, 2014

Starting at about the 10 minute mark, the whole film kicks into gear… and from that point on, it’s a joy ride… you’ll need to be ready for some DARK material - but it’s fun as hell.

Crazy/Creepy/Dark Film that Rox!!!

The Best Film!! If you like dark films or dark comedies this is it! You won't regret renting or buying it... I'm speechless... The Director & Actors Rock!!!!! A Crazy/Creepy Film That Definitely Keeps Your Attention! Keeping an eye on the director for more in the future...!!!!

Good but be ready

seeing it called a Comedy I went into this thinking something TOTALLY different than what it was. I was expecting a bunch of wacky, funny dares for money. It is without a doubt a drama and a thriller before its a comedy. Actually I can’t remember a funny part in the movie. But that doesn’t mean its bad, it def had me glued to my seat. Just don’t be fooled like I was thinking it going to make me laugh
