HELL FEST Trailer Drops And Looks Absolutely Bonkers Fun
CBS Films and Lionsgate have dropped the official green band trailer for Hell Fest, which looks like it's going to be a blast. As time moves on, the immersive scare event has been ramped up and become more and more prevalent. I mean, Universal builds an entire season around it in two different states. So Hell Fest is capitalizing on that success and going bolder and bigger. The film is about an entire amusement park that is horror themed.
Aw, the dream.
The main idea of the movie is that a killer has inserted himself into the park and people are unaware due to the nature of the theme park. It's similar to it's predecessors The Houses That October Built and The Funhouse Massacre, but with a glossy sheen and some beautiful set design, Hell Fest looks like it has the potential to be the teen scream we all want and need. Check out the full synopsis and trailer below!

A masked serial killer turns a horror themed amusement park into his own personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends while the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show.
College student NATALIE (Forsyth) is visiting her childhood best friend BROOKE (Edwards) and her roommate TAYLOR (Taylor-Klaus). If it was any other time of year these three and their boyfriends might be heading to a concert or bar, but it is Halloween which means that like everyone else they will be bound for HELL FEST – a sprawling labyrinth of rides, games, and mazes that travels the country and happens to be in town. Every year thousands follow Hell Fest to experience fear at the ghoulish carnival of nightmares.
But for one visitor, Hell Fest is not the attraction – it is a hunting ground. An opportunity to slay in plain view of a gawking audience, too caught up in the terrifyingly fun atmosphere to recognize the horrific reality playing out before their eyes. As the body count and frenzied excitement of the crowds continues to rise, he turns his masked face to NATALIE, BROOKE, TAYLOR and their boyfriends who will fight to survive the night.
A terrifying thrill ride from iconic horror producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator), Tucker Tooley (Limitless, Den of Thieves) and director Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, Editor – Get Out, Happy Death Day), this September, audiences will discover that it’s fun going in… but it’s hell getting out.
