It seems like turkey isn't the only thing getting carved up this fall with a brand-new horror movie set to grace our screens later this year.
The slasher flick, Thanksgiving, is directed by Eli Roth and produced by Roger Birnbaum, from a screenplay written by Roth and Jeff Rendell.
Based on Roth's mock trailer of the same name from his, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s 2007 horror Grindhouse, the upcoming flick stars the likes of Grey's Anatomy's Patrick Dempsey and TikTok personality Addison Rae. Check out the official teaser trailer here:
While the flick misses Halloween and all the jubilations that comes with spooky season - it's clear a whole new holiday is up on the chopping block to be horror-fied.
In the original fake trailer, Roth stars while a mysterious slasher invades a small town in Massachusetts amid the Thanksgiving holiday season.
The voiceover teased: "From director Eli Roth: Thanksgiving. You'll come home from the holidays... in a body bag!"
The eerie logline reads: "After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts – the birthplace of the infamous holiday."
The teaser trailer shows a killer dressed up as a pilgrim who hunts down his unfortunate victims in a beyond grizzly manner including one particularly gruesome slash which takes place in a walk-in freezer of all places.
Now that's chilling.
Joining the likes of Dempsey and Rae, the rest of the cast includes; Milo Manheim, Nell Verlaque, Jalen Thomas Brooks, Dempsey, Rick Hoffman, Gina Gershon, Chris Sandiford, Tim Dillon, and Tomaso Sanelli.
Horror fans who have already caught wind of the trailer have since flocked to social media to share their reactions.
One X user penned: "Wait this looks really good..."
"Addison Rae Oscar incoming," claimed a second.
A third chimed in: "Can’t wait for it!"
"One for my list of horrors," wrote a fourth, with a fifth social media user exclaiming: "Finally a proper Thanksgiving horror movie!"
Another praised: "Eli Roth doesn’t miss with horror films."
"Considering how Thanksgiving actually started this movie actually makes sense!" pointed out a seventh.
"Hope it won’t disappoint," added another X user. "Looking forward to it!"
And final thriller fanatic declared: "This could very well be the horror movie of the year."
Well, I guess we'll all just have to hold tight to wait and see...
Thanksgiving will be released in theaters on 17 November.
