CBS Films and Lionsgate‘s Hell Fest is taking you back to a tubular time. Put on your Jordache jeans, buckle your fanny pack, slap on your bracelet, and lace-up your LA Gears! Check out the rad new ’80s trailer and poster to get in the Halloween spirit…
A terrifying new vision of horror from director Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator), Hell Fest opens on September 28 and stars Amy Forsyth, Reign Edwards, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Christian James, Roby Attal, Matt Mercurio, and Tony Todd.
In the film, 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. Ever 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.
