I was worried for a while there that this new film was destined to be another PG-13 attempt at a slasher film (which has only ever worked in Blumhouse’s Happy Death Day) and so I’m glad to know this film will be super rated R.

You can give the bloody new trailer a look-see below and then let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Hell Fest is directed by Gregory Plotkin and produced by Gale Anne Hurd. It stars Bex Taylor-Klaus, Amy Forsyth, and Reign Edwards. Phillip Kobylanski is overseeing the project for Valhalla Entertainment. Alex Ginno and Mark Ross are overseeing the project for CBS Films. The film is set for release September 28.


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.  Every 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 continue to rise, he turns his masked face to Natalie, Brooke, Taylor and their boyfriends who will fight to survive the night.
