Keeping up with the ongoing SXSW Film Festival, Evan Dickson has posted his review of Cheap Thrills, the E.L. Katz-directed genre thriller that was just acquired by Drafthouse Films for a limited theatrical and VOD run later this year.
Starring Pat Healy, Sara Paxton, David Koechner, Ethan Embry and Amanda Fuller, the Trent Haaga and David Chirchirillo penned screenplay tells the story of a new father facing eviction who is reunited with a high school friend when a wealthy couple challenges them to the ultimate game of dare, testing the limits of physical pain and morality in exchange for cash.
“It’s the rare slow burn that maintains interest by gradually increasing speed rather than simply leaping from 0 to 60 in the final 10 minutes,” says Dickson. “A great horror satire that would incidentally make a great stage play, this is a 100% can’t miss film for any viewer that wants to be sickened, surprised and impressed.”
