The United States observes Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday. In 2023, Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 23. One of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies is recognized to have taken place in 1621 when the English colonists from Plymouth and the Native American Wampanoag people celebrated an autumn harvest feast.
Thanksgiving At Alamo Drafthouse!
This year, Thanksgiving arrives early at Alamo Drafthouse. The movie theatre chain's Fantastic Fest Presents series, which honours horror films all year long, will screen Eli Roth's upcoming slasher picture two days before it opens wide on November 17. Austin, Texas theatregoers may already purchase tickets for the early showing, which includes the movie, a pre-recorded greeting from Roth, and souvenir masks for anybody who shows up for the event.
Crazy Town Of Plymouth!
Based on Roth's 2007 fake trailer for Grindhouse, Thanksgiving is a gory vintage slasher with a contemporary paint job. The film is set in Plymouth, Massachusetts, over Thanksgiving, when a Black Friday brawl turns tragic. An unexpected visitor interrupts the celebrations and begins a string of savage killings that threaten to destroy the festive mood. Until the killer's insane scheme is made public and the locals are left reeling from the devastation, there isn't much of a reason why these revenge killings are occurring. There won't be any leftovers when a good number of individuals wind up seated at John Carver's twisted dinner table.
Thanksgiving Is One To Watch Out For!
Thanksgiving is a killer to beware of because of the inventive and disorganized manner in which he arranges his killings. From his unsettling Hostel flicks to his 2002 feature debut Cabin Fever, among other works, Roth has a fascination for horror. As he stated in a recent featurette, bringing JohnCarver to life was a true passion project for him. He wanted to make a fun slasher that combines memorable killings with a mystery around who is behind the mask, a la Scream. With killings centred on many of your favourite holiday food prep utensils and other Thanksgiving-related goods, it also enthusiastically embraces the trimmings of holiday horror.
Fake Grindhouse Trailer For The Film!
Along with frequent colleague Jeff Rendell, who also contributed to the writing of the film's fictitious Grindhouse trailer, Roth co-wrote the Thanksgiving script. They had long-term aspirations to turn the trailer into a full film, so they had to go a long way before they could eventually bring this vision to life. For years, the "totally bonkers" movie was stuck in development hell, with Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford originally slated to co-write. Roth enlisted a talented cast - Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae, Milo Manheim, Gina Gershon, Jalen Thomas Brooks, Nell Verlaque, Rick Hoffman, Tim Dillon, Jenna Warren, and Amanda Barker, among others to help realize his fantasy horror film.
