‘Thanksgiving’ is Eli Roth’s fake ‘Grindhouse’ trailer turned real slasher film

Depending on your family, Thanksgiving may already feel like a horror movie. However, the new teaser trailer for upcoming film Thanksgiving makes it a lot more literal.

Based on director Eli Roth’s mock trailer featured in 2007’s Grindhouse, Thanksgiving takes place in Plymouth, Massachusetts in the wake of a Black Friday that ended in disaster. Following the tragedy, a Thanksgiving-themed killer appears to dispatch terrified locals — and as the film’s tagline boasts, “there will be no leftovers.” The cast includes Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae, Milo Manheim, Jalen Thomas Brooks, Nell Verlaque, Rick Hoffman, and Gina Gershon.

From the looks of it, the question isn’t whether or not Thanksgiving will be camp. The question is exactly how camp this slasher horror will be.

Thanksgiving arrives in theatres on Nov. 17, just under a week before this year’s holiday.
