It was a time of high hair, bad clothes, and 99 red balloons. Everybody wanted to rule the world, and we could dance if we wanted to. Hell, we can even leave your friends behind, providing they don’t dance. Take my hand, take on me, and let’s enjoy a throwback trailer for Gregory Plotkin‘s Hell Fest!
The film is directed by Plotkin from a screenplay written by Seth M. Sherwood, Blair Butler, and Akela Cooper and a story by William Penick, Christopher Sey, and Stephen Susco. It’s produced by Gale Anne Hurd and Tucker Tooley and scored by legendary composer Bear McCreary (“The Walking Dead,” 10 Cloverfield Lane, Happy Death Day).
Hell Fest stars Amy Forsyth (“Channel Zero: No-End House”), Reign Edwards (“Snowfall”), Bex Taylor-Klaus (“Scream: The TV Series”), Christian James (“Nashville”), Roby Attal (“The Long Road Home”), Matt Mercurio (“Black Lightning”), and Tony Todd (Candyman). CBS Films and Lionsgate will release Hell Fest in theaters September 28th.
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.
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 continue to rise, he turns his masked face to Natalie, Brooke, Taylor, and their boyfriends, who will fight to survive the night.
