Gleefully nasty and darkly hilarious, Cheap Thrills lives down to its title in the best possible way.
A thoroughly nasty piece of work, which doubtless will be the strongest selling point for this worst-case scenario about steadily escalating dares and degradations
—Joe Leydon, Variety
One of the most involving works of cinematic misanthropy in years.
—John Defore, The Hollywood Reporter
Cheap Thrills breezes by on a twisted idea, a fantastic cast, and a bunch of ethical quandaries that are both eerily uncomfortable and slyly fascinating at the same time.
—Scott Weinberg, Fearnet
