In the black comedy Cheap Thrills, a rich couple played by David Koechner and Sara Paxton challenge a far more down-at-heel pair of acquaintances (Ethan Embry and Pat Healy) to perform ever more outlandish tasks for increasing sums of money. Directed by horror movie scripter-turned-first-time filmmaker E.L. Katz, the result was released earlier this year and is one of the more confident debuts this writer has seen in quite some time.
But was Katz confident when he was making the film? Apparently, not so much.
Cheap Thrills is released on Blu-ray and DVD on May 27 and will include a 45-minute making-of documentary. You can check out a somewhat frazzled-seeming Katz in the exclusive clip from the doc below – which, we should probably point out, also features depictions of violence, blood, and strippers.
