A series of dares will get out of hand in this comedy thriller coming to Blu-ray in May. Pre-orders are now live.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cinedigm is preparing 'Cheap Thrills' for Blu-ray on May 27.
'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.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary with Director E.L. Katz and Star Pat Healy; The Making of Cheap Thrills: This 45-minute documentary chronicles the tight 14-day shooting schedule with a fly-on-the-wall perspective of the pressures and rewards of making a first feature on such a short schedule; Cheap Thrills at Fantastic Fest 2013; Trailers; and a 16-Page Booklet.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/Digital Copy combo pack is $24.95.
