Take a look at the red band trailer CBS Films has unveiled for upcoming horror film Hell Fest.
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension director Gregory Plotkin helms this very familiar-looking, yet potentially entertaining, slasher-horror flick. The unsuspecting young victims are played by Amy Forsyth, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Reign Edwards and Tony Todd, a group of friends that head to the titular amusement park for some fun scares on Halloween. What they think is all part of the show is soon revealed to be much, much more sinister, and… cue that body count.
You’ll know quickly with the red band trailer below if this one’s for you or not. If the energy is right and there are some smarts behind the tongue-in-cheek horror, there could be some on offer here. We’ll see.
Hell Fest will open in US cinemas on September 28.
Extended synopsis for Hell Fest:
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 continues to rise, he turns his masked face to NATALIE, BROOKE, TAYLOR and their boyfriends who will fight to survive the night.
A terrifying thrill ride from iconic horror producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator) and director Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, Editor – Get Out, Happy Death Day), this September, audiences will discover that it’s fun going in… but it’s hell getting out.
