Next Friday will see the release of Hell Fest, the upcoming slasher that takes place in an amusement park. Not to be confused with Rooster Teeth’s Blood Fest, Hell Fest doesn’t want to make people laugh with its meta humor but rather wants there to be a body count where each death has weight and purpose.
To celebrate next week’s release, we got our hands not only on a wickedly fun new poster that you can see on your right but also a clip in which the mystery of a place called Orange Grove is brought up in the hushed tones that only a spooky urban legend warrants. Check that out above and get ready for a new slasher when Hell Fest hits theaters 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.”
Directed by Gregory Plotkin and produced by Gale Anne Hurd, Hell Fest stars Bex Taylor-Klaus, Amy Forsyth, and Reign Edwards.
