Halloween Slasher ‘Hell Fest’ Gets ’80s Throwback Trailer

We are only days away from Hell Fest arriving in theaters and CBS Films has just released an insanely awesome retro “Throwback Trailer” that makes the film, about a costumed killer terrorizing a theme park during Halloween, look just like one of your favorite classic slashers from the 1980s.

After following the development of this project for years, I couldn’t be more excited to finally see it on the big screen when it premieres at our local theater this Thursday night, and this final trailer is simply glorious.

The official synopsis: A masked killer turns a horror themed amusement park into his own personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends whle the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show.

The film stars Bex Taylor-Klaus (Scream: The TV Series, Arrow), Amy Forsythe, Reign Edwards, Christian James, and genre icon Tony Todd (Candyman, The Crow, Final Destination, Hatchet), directed by Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension; editor of Get Out, Happy Death Day) and executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead).

Hell Fest opens in theaters this Friday, September 28.

You can watch the ’80s throwback trailer for Hell Fest below.
