When a film screen for press, the distributor shares a “press kit” with the writer. It’s filled with film details, cast information, quotes from the filmmakers and sometimes even more.
Drafthouse Films is set to release E.L. Katz’ Cheap Thrills in select theaters this Friday (it’s already on VOD platforms), and wants to bring you into the world of the press with the following “Vintage Press Kit,” inspired by one from the film Schizoid! Check it out exclusively on Bloody Disgusting!
“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.”
