Will the town uncover the killer and survive the holidays…or become guests at his twisted holiday dinner table?

When is Thanksgiving being released in cinemas?

The film will open in Australian cinemas on November 16th and U.S. cinemas on November 17th (appropriately close to Thanksgiving – November 23rd).
