Would you do this for $500? Check out the first clip below from Drafthouse Films' critically-acclaimed Cheap Thrills, which is currently at 100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, on VOD now and in theaters March 21. Pat Healy and Ethan Embry star as Craig and Vince, who meet a wealthy couple (David Koechner and Sara Paxton) at a bar. These friends are offered money if they agree to perform a series of dangerous dares. Watch as Vince violates the "no-touching" policy of a strip club for $200, and Craig punches a bouncer for $500.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: The Legend Continues) 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.
Cheap Thrills was released March 21st, 2014 and stars Pat Healy, Ethan Embry, Sara Paxton, David Koechner, Amanda Fuller, Laura Covelli, Elissa Dowling, Val Emanuel. The film is directed by E.L. Katz.
