Actress Sara Paxton is currently playing a starring role on the big screen in the comedy thriller "Cheap Thrills" and she is leaving an indelible impression in the minds of casting agents, producers and directors in the world of Hollywood. She is known for her role as the blonde victim in horror films such as "Shark Night 3D" and "The Last House on the Left" but in her role as Victoria in "Cheap Thrills" she plays a woman who is incredibly flawed and basically a psychopath in her actions. Sara Paxton's performance demonstrated the dramatic range that has made her an actress whom many consider one of the more talented actresses in Hollywood.
In "Cheap Thrills" Sara Paxton plays the role of a bored housewife who along with her husband are willing to pay money to watch people engage in a series of dares and challenges. Into their world comes a failed author and auto mechanic as they are put in touch with him by a loan shark enforcer. Sara Paxton displays a gritty, flawed character that one does not usually associate with her characters and as a result has changed how many film professionals view her as an actor.
This role shows her reaching the dramatic potential that film insiders have long believed existed. She is the silent instigator in the film for the crazy challenges that she and her film husband, Colin, played by David Koechner have the unemployed mechanic Craig played by Pat Healy engage in as they push the limits of finding out what the need for money will push someone to do.
Sara Paxton has several projects that are in post-production or completed but do not be surprised if the movie "Cheap Thrills" is listed by some producers and directors in the future as the project in which her performance pushed her over the edge and made her an actress that they had to have in their films.
