This Thanksgiving won’t be one of joy and family if the new red band trailer for horror film Thanksgiving has anything to say about it. The film, directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) is based on a mock trailer Roth created for 2007’s Grindhouse and is a new holiday-themed slasher following a serial killer named John Carver.
“After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts – the birthplace of the infamous holiday,” the official synopsis reads.
Thanksgiving stars Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae, Milo Manheim, Jalen Thomas Brooks, Nell Verlaque, Rick Hoffman, Gina Gershon, Tim Dillon, Gabriel Davenport, Tomaso Sanelli, and Jenna Warren. The story comes from Roth and Jeff Rendell, with Rendell writing the screenplay. Roth and Rendell are also producing the film alongside Roger Birnbaum.
