Based on the mock-trailer from Grindhouse (2007) Eli Roth directed the Thanksgiving trailer to be shown between the films DeathProof and Planet Terror when shown as a double feature. It’s not the first of those mock trailers that were made into feature films with Robert Rodriguez; ‘Machete’ having been made into a film and two sequels. (there was also a trailer by Edgar Wright that is surely begging for a feature film too). Co-written by is Eli Roth & Rick Hoffman’s it’s their first collaboration since Hostel in 2005. Now with a bigger budget the gore quotient promises to be high
After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorises Plymouth, Massachusetts – the birthplace of the infamous holiday.
The film stars Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae , Milo Manheim, Jalen Brooks Thomas, Nell Verlaque, Rick Hoffman and Gina Gershon and is a return to full on gory horror by Roth after a foray into documentaries and family friendly film, ‘The House with a Clock in its Walls’.
Thanksgiving is in cinemas from 17th November 2023
