Monsters are fake but terror is real in new retro Hell Fest trailer
CBS Films and Lionsgate pays homage to classic 80s horror movies by releasing a brand new retro slasher styled trailer for their upcoming horror slasher film Hell Fest ahead of its release this week. The Halloween-themed park inspired film stars Amy Forsyth (The Path, Rise), Emmy-nominee Reign Edwards (MacGyver, Snowfall), and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Here and Now, Arrow). 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.
