TGB Interview: 'Cheap Thrills' Director E.L. Katz & Star Pat Healy

Cheap Thrills TGB Interview

One of our favorite films from Fantastic Fest 2013 was E.L. Katz's Cheap Thrills (Jeremy's review). The film is visceral, hilarious and painfully dark at times, but boy do we love it. In Austin last year we had the chance to sit down with director Evan "E.L." Katz and star Pat Healy along with guests Ethan Embry and David Koechner to chat about what makes Cheap Thrills such a special little flick. We went over some of the themes of the film with Evan, talked through the process of building suspense while maintaining tone, and got into the grit of the relationships. Listen to the full-on 30-minute TGB interview from Fantastic Fest.
