I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Cheap Thrills yet, but I haven’t read a bad word about it, and many have hailed it as one of the best films of the year. Needless to say, I cannot wait for the films UK cinema release next Friday, and eventual DVD release on July 28th.
A behind the scenes clip has been released which may be a bit spoilery, but it certainly shows the immense fun everyone had making the film, and also gives an insight into the directors twisted intentions. Check out the clip below.
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?
Cheap Thrills is in UK cinemas from 6th June 2014, and arrives on DVD July 28th.
