Have fun and face your fear with the new Hell Fest featurette
CBS Films and Lionsgate have released a new featurette video (via IGN) for their upcoming horror slasher film Hell Fest starring Amy Forsyth (The Path, Rise), Emmy-nominee Reign Edwards (MacGyver, Snowfall), and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Here and Now, Arrow). The video features The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd talking about the inspiration behind the horror film. Check out the video below!
College student Natalie (Forsyth) is visiting her childhood best friend Brooke (Edwards) and her roommate Taylor (Taylor-Klaus). If it was any other time of year these three and their boyfriends might be heading to a concert or bar, but it is Halloween which means that like everyone else they will be bound for HELL FEST – a sprawling labyrinth of rides, games, and mazes that travels the country and happens to be in town. Every year thousands follow Hell Fest to experience fear at the ghoulish carnival of nightmares.
But for one visitor, Hell Fest is not the attraction – it is a hunting ground. An opportunity to slay in plain view of a gawking audience, too caught up in the terrifyingly fun atmosphere to recognize the horrific reality playing out before their eyes. As the body count and frenzied excitement of the crowds continues to rise, he turns his masked face to Natalie, Brooke, Taylor and their boyfriends who will fight to survive the night.
The film is directed by Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, Editor — Get Out, Happy Death Day) and produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, Aliens).
Hellfest is set for release on September 28 of this year.
