It’s been 16 long years, but the wait is over! Eli Roth teased us with some exceptional grindhouse glee in 2007 when he cobbled together a faux trailer for Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse.
Even the original poster (yes, there was a poster created for the fake trailer) had a joyous cut at the sleazier side of cinema history. Eli Roth was on to something back then and it wasn’t just his penchant for great horror story telling. Oh no, he knew full well that the world had moved on from the grimier elements of New York’s 42nd street and Thanksgiving was the perfect way inject audiences with this gory greatness.
While the details of this year’s Thanksgiving are a little hazy — maybe it’s the tryptophan — what we do know is that the film focuses on the events “After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts – the birthplace of the infamous holiday.” Black Friday riot? Thanksgiving-inspired killer? Eli Roth? SIGN. US. UP.
With Patrick Dempsey and Gina Gershon signed on to the project it’s time to bust out Grandpa’s best carving knives and get to slicing! While the Scariest Things Podcast has HIGH hopes for Thanksgiving, we’re also hoping that Mr. Zombie doesn’t get any bright ideas about bringing Werewolf Women of the S.S. to the silver screen.
While we wait for the film’s release on November 17, we can just bask in the glory of the recently released poster and the 2007 poster that was tied to the faux trailer.
