Which they do. »

Running Time: 88 minutes
What would you do for money? How far would you go? That’s the simple idea that Cheap Thrills takes and runs with. It’s an easily relatable hook and one that everybody will consider throughout the running time of this gross but wonderful film that takes a disparaging look at the human race. There are many films that have taken the basic idea of posing questions and acting them out, but few have done it with as much glee and twisted enjoyment as Cheap Thrills.
Pat Healy plays Craig Daniels, a man who finds himself out of a job and risking eviction. One night he stumbles across an old friend, Vince (Embry), as well as a wealthy couple (Koechner and Paxton). The couple start daring the old friends to act irresponsibly »

Here are the most shocking stars who didn’t last on SNL: 1. Robert [...] »

Josh Stolberg's Crawlspace is now available on Hulu and we've got a clip to share featuring co-star David Koechner (Anchorman, Final Destination 5) feeling the wrath of Steven Weber. Check it out in the player here! And, if you're wondering how the film is, we reviewed it earlier this week - click here. Directed by Josh Stolberg (writer of Piranha 3D and Sorority Row), the film is the story of a banker who moves his family into a foreclosed home with an eerie, dark past. What occurs next is a high action thriller as the family is terrorized.

David Koechner is best known for playing the Ron Burgundy-obsessed Champ Kind in the Anchorman movies. But the comic actor is becoming something of a horror genre regular, thanks to his appearances in Piranha 3Dd, the not-exactly-a-horror-movie-but-still-plenty-horrific Cheap Thrills, the forthcoming Scouts vs. Zombies, and Crawlspace, which is now available to watch exclusively on Hulu Plus.
Directed and cowritten by Josh Stolberg (who also copenned Piranha 3D) and starring Steven Weber and Lori Loughlin, Crawlspace concerns a banker who, according to the official synopsis, “moves his family into a foreclosed home with a dark, eerie past.” Cue: gore and gruesomeness. »

Horror films are like a mischievous child with a wooden stick: they prod and probe at our subconscious, searching for the sensitive spots that make us jump or recoil in fear and disgust. Yet while the horror genre's main purpose is to reflect our phobias and anxieties, it can also, on occasion, say something wider about society or human nature.
By a strange cosmic coincidence, the 6th June saw the release of two wildly different horror films which both attempt to do something more than chill our bones: El Katz's blackly comic Cheap Thrills, and Ti West's faux documentary The Sacrament. The first delves into such themes as class, poverty and reality TV, while the second touches on belief, »
Wow. Just a month in and this regular post dedicated to the - shall we say - more idiosyncratic, less delicate of movies (or shall we just say “gory horrors and not-quite-b-movies”) has the splendid fortune of getting to review Stuart Gordon’s tongue-in-cheek classic, Re-Animator.
Produced by Brian Yuzna, the warped individual behind the brutal class satire/mutant cannibalism jaunt Society, and starring that rubber-faced icon of the midnight movie, Jeffrey Combs, this remains one of the crowning glories of 80s cult film-making. Re-Animator's essentially an outlandish, sillier take on Hp Lovecraft’s spin on the Frankenstein mad-scientist story, and Combs, who you’ll undoubtedly know from such box-office juggernauts as Doctor Mordrid and Cellar Dweller (reviewed here next month), plays brilliant-if-misguided medical student Herbert West. »
We’ve all been there: a group of friends sitting around a table, someone asks if you’d do such-and-such for a million pounds, some unspeakable act. Awkward glances are exchanged until one daredevil pipes up and proudly proclaims that it would be easy, knowing full well that he’ll never actually be faced with that kind of dilemma. El Katz’s debut feature is a demonically dark comedy that asks these questions of its protagonists again and again, and as the stakes rise Cheap Thrills makes its audience feel disgustingly voyeuristic. Intriguing and vile in equal measure, it’s like a Michael Haneke film except.. .Y’know… Fun. Taking place over one eventful night, the film opens with Craig (Pat Healy) losing his job as a car mechanic. Timid and bespectacled, Craig comes across as a perennial underdog and, instead of going home to face his wife, young child, »

Relish the shocking black comedy Cheap Thrills the same day as cinema - in Sky Store. When a struggling family man (Pat Healy) loses his lowly-paid job he drowns his sorrows with an old buddy (Ethan Embry). Sitting in a bar, the two friends are roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner, Anchorman 2). »
What would you do if someone waved a bunch of cash in your face, and offered it you in exchange for doing progressively more degrading things? It's a simple question, that's explored in considerable detail in the usually smart, sometimes plain cruel Cheap Thrills.
The film is centered around Craig, played by Pat Healy, who's facing eviction from his home as he struggles to meet the rent. Life is further complicated by the fact that he and his wife - Audrey - have a young child. How can it get worse? Well, by turning up to work and finding out you're losing your job.
In despair, and unsure how he's going to break the news at home, Craig hits a local bar, and meets up with an old high school colleague, »
