For horror fans, the wait is finally over as Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving slasher film is set to release on November 17, 2023, just in time for Thanksgiving. Fans of the genre have been eagerly anticipating the release of the feature expansion of the faux slasher trailer that Roth created for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse sixteen years ago. And now, TriStar Pictures and Spyglass Media Group are backing the theatrical release of the movie, which has been a long time coming for Roth.
The screenplay was written by Roth and Jeff Rendell, who played the homicidal pilgrim in the original trailer, twelve years ago. Spyglass Media’s funding has finally made it possible for Roth to bring his vision to life, and he is thrilled to be producing the film with Roger Birnbaum, while Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre serve as executive producers alongside Kate Harrison of Cream Productions Inc. The movie will be directed by Tim Miller, who is well-known for his work on Deadpool and Terminator: Dark Fate, and who took over the reshoots for Roth’s video game adaptation, Borderlands.
The cast of the movie includes a mix of rising stars and seasoned actors, such as Addison Rae (He’s All That), Jalen Thomas Brooks (Walker), Nell Verlaque (Big Shot), Milo Manheim (Z-O-M-B-I-E-S), Gina Gershon (Bound), comedian Tim Dillon (who was in a TV show called Thanksgiving), Rick Hoffman (Hostel), Gabriel Davenport (Mistletoe Time Machine), Tomaso Sanelli (Titans), Jenna Warren (The Young Arsonists), and Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy) in the role of the town sheriff.
The plot of the movie is still shrouded in secrecy, but sources suggest that it centers around a slasher who invades a small Massachusetts town with the intent of creating a Thanksgiving carving board out of its inhabitants. Fans of the original Thanksgiving trailer can expect a blood-soaked, suspenseful movie that will be a perfect fit for the holiday season.
As the release date approaches, horror enthusiasts can look forward to an exciting addition to the slasher movie genre. This much-anticipated film promises to deliver a unique and thrilling experience that fans won’t want to miss. Don’t forget to catch Thanksgiving when it hits theaters in November 2023!
