Cheap Thrills

A rich man (David Koechner) looking for twisted entertainment for himself and his trophy wife (Sara Paxton) tempts two down-on-their-luck old pals (Pat Healy and Ethan Embry) to do increasingly bad things for money.  Of course things escalate and spiral out of control in this dark and violent gore-fest.  Unfortunately the thrills aren't the only things that are cheap, as the movie itself lacks decent production values.  And the fairly predictable script (at least by mid-way) makes this less fun than I would have hoped, particularly because the cast is good.

'Cheap Thrills' is now available on Video on Demand.

Grade: C+

Who is this movie for?  Those who enjoy violent and gory low budget midnight films billed as dark comedies, when in actuality there aren't any laughs at all.
