Today marks the VOD release of E.L. Katz’ Cheap Thrills, and to celebrate Drafthouse Films has launched a fun “Share to Dare” challenge, which allows you – yes, you – the ability to make the film’s cast and crew perform outrageous stunts and engage in ridiculous acts.
How it works is that you share the film’s official website on Twitter, using the hashtag #CheapThrills, and when a certain number of shares are calculated, stars Ethan Embry and Pat Healy, along with others, will have no other choice but to do the silly things you’re encouraging them to do.
And yes, video and photographic evidence will be provided.
Here’s a rundown of the dares you can vote for them to take part in!

The acclaimed comic thriller Cheap Thrills is now available exclusively on the Movies On Demand platform of Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cox Communications, and Bright House Networks cable systems, prior to its March 21st theatrical and digital VOD release. Cheap Thrills joins a select few titles to receive pre-theatrical debuts exclusively on cable.
The directorial debut from E.L. Katz, Cheap Thrills was acquired by Drafthouse Films, in partnership with Snoot Entertainment, following its world premiere at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the “Midnighters Audience Award.” Cinedigm holds the home entertainment distribution rights, including DVD, Blu-ray, VOD, and digital platforms.
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.
