Upcoming slasher film ‘Hell Fest’ sets a masked killer loose in a theme park haunt
Every Halloween, thousands of people flock to events like Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights, Busch Gardens’ Howl-O-Scream, and other haunts to be properly scared…but what if there was a real killer pretending to be another part of the show?
Welcome to “Hell Fest,” a new amusement park slasher film out from Lionsgate and CBS Films on Sept. 28.
In the film, college student Natalie (Amy Forsyth) is visiting her best friend Brooke (Reign Edwards) and her roommate Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus) during Halloween. The three girls and their boyfriends head out for Hell Fest, an all-too-familiar theme park event comprised of rides, games and haunted houses.
For one event-goer, this isn’t just a haunt – it’s a hunting ground. A masked killer lurks around in the night, looking to slay their victims in plain view of an audience that will never realize that the horror is real until it’s too late.
This film is produced by “The Walking Dead” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, and directed by Gregory Plotkin, whose previous directing credits include 2015’s “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension.”
