Step right up to see the terrifying Hell Fest trailer from Lionsgate and CBS Films! We’ve all imagined what it would be like if that masked freak following you at the Halloween haunted house turned out to be a real, bona fide psychopath. With all the orchestrated chaos and scares, how would you know if it wasn’t all part of the act?
That is the fear the Hell Fest trailer is preying on as it shows just what an ideal playground Halloween carnivals and haunted houses would be for a killer to blend in. Director Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension) is helming the film, which stars Amy Forsyth (Channel Zero, The Path), Reign Edwards (MacGyver, Snowfall), and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Scream, The Killing). There is even an appearance by horror legend Tony Todd (Candyman, Final Destination), who looks to be playing the carnival ringmaster!
Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) is producing the film under her company Valhalla Motion Pictures. The screenplay is provided by Seth M. Sherwood, Blair Butler, and Gary Dauberman, with the story by William Penick, Chris Sey, and Dauberman. Stephen Susco has writer credits as well.
Here’s the official plot synopsis via IMDB:
A masked serial killer turns a horror themed amusement park into his own personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends while the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show.
The concept is reminiscent of Stephen Cognetti’s underrated found-footage film Hell House LLC, where a Halloween haunted house attraction turns out to actually be haunted. Hell House LLC is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime, and should also be added to your Halloween movie marathon list this year. But I digress…
The trailer for Hell Fest is filled with vibrant colors, mischievous holiday festivities, and a visceral night of murder and mayhem. The movie looks like a spooky urban legend come true, and combining it with our favorite holiday only makes it that much more enticing.
Hell Fest will hit theaters September 28th, 2018, just in time to kick off the Halloween season with a bloody good time!
