Gregory Plotkin’s slasher Hell Fest is a movie that I somehow missed when it stalked and slashed cinemas this past summer, but I look to snag it once it hits Blu-ray, for sure. But when will that be?
Well, today we have word via Lionsgate that the amusement park slasher film will be hitting Digitally this December and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD via Lionsgate this January!

Hell Fest hits digital on December 28th and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on January 8th.
A group of friends is bound for a horror-themed Halloween event at a local amusement park — a sprawling labyrinth of rides, games, and mazes that travels the country and happens to be in town. But for one visitor the ghoulish carnival of nightmares is not the attraction — it is a hunting ground.
On the night the friends attend, a masked serial killer turns the amusement park into his own playground, terrorizing attendees while the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show. As the body count and frenzied excitement of the crowd continue to rise, who will fight to survive the night?
