After witnessing it blow away the late-night audience at last year’s Film4 FrightFest in London, it’s a bit of a thrill in itself to hear that director E.L. Katz’s wonderful Cheap Thrills (review) will be dishing out the punishment across the UK this May 2nd.
From the Press Release:
E.L Katz makes a masterful initiation at the directorial helm in this black comedy masterpiece – a gritty and brutal critique on society and a satirical comment on the true value of money. This SXSW award winner is sure to be the indie hit of 2014.
Unemployed and down on his luck, Craig (Pat Healy) finds himself drowning his sorrows in an attempt to forget the mounting debts threatening to tear his family apart. When a chance meeting with an old friend (Ethan Embry) leads to one drink after another; the pair find themselves drawn into an innocent game of dare by a thrill-seeking couple with money to burn: Violet (Sara Paxton) and Colin (David Koechner).
As the night progresses, both Vince and Craig become the victims of their own greed as the initially fun game escalates into something far more sinister. When the money is on the table, how far will two friends go to ensure their futures?
