HELL FEST Continues Trend Of Stoking Horror Fans Up With 80's Aesthetic Trailer

Hell Fest from CBS Films is really coming out swinging. Not only did they team up with Six Flags to truly bring parts of the movie to life, incorporating some of the haunts from the film into a walkable reality, but they continue the trend of plucking at genre fan heartstrings with a new trailer.

The twist?

It’s remixed to look like it’s straight from the home video era of the eighties. Check out the new retro trailer below and catch the red band trailer after the synopsis. Hell Fest is a scant few days away now, hitting September 28th of this year, and looks like one hell of a ride.

Story by: William Penick & Christopher Sey and Stephen Susco

Scored by legendary composer Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Happy Death Day)

Starring: Amy Forsyth (Rise, Beautiful Boy), Reign Edwards (The Bold and The Beautiful, Snowfall), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Voltron, The Killing), Christian James (Nashville, Exposed), Roby Attal (The Long Road Home, Red Eleven), Matt Mercurio (Black Lightning, The Resident) and Tony Todd (Candyman, The Man From Earth). 

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 (LimitlessDen 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.
