Evan Katz's Cheap Thrills (2013) is his first debut as a director and the horror film will be hitting movie theaters and VOD this upcoming March 21, 2014. If you can not wait till then, Movies.com broke the news that the horror movie wil be available on Movies on Demand (Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks) on February 21, 2014. Check out Pat Healy, Ethan Embry and Sara Paxton as they star in a rather disturbing movie where a wealthy eccentric is willing to pay two guys to do morally compromising and life endangering things to say the least. This movie looks totally sick.
Synopsis: 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 Inkeepers). 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.
