A cool classic-horror throwback style trailer has been released for the upcoming slasher flick Hell Fest.
Hell Fest follows a group of friends that visit a horror-themed amusement park, only to find out that one of the attractions is, in fact, a real serial killer.
The friends are then, as expected, murdered off one by one in various fashions while the rest of the park’s patrons believe the horror is just part of the show.
It’s probably the least original premise for a slasher-horror film, however, these films always tend to have audiences coming back, usually to see how far the filmmakers can push the murder scenes.
Usually, if the film’s writers can get inventive with the death scenes, then films like Hell Fest can garner a bit of a cult following, and on the rare occasion, actually become sleeper box office hits.
This new trailer outlines the film’s plot in a particular throwback style that pays tribute to horror film trailers of the 60’s and 70’s, even referencing grindhouse cinema in its style.
It’s a nice touch to gain attention for a film that will likely be underwhelming but may still prove entertaining.
It does appear to have some nice production design, however, which is a bonus.
It stars Bex Taylor-Klaus, Reign Edwards, Amy Forsyth and horror movie veteran Tony Todd.
The film is due out in cinemas on 28 September, check out the cool new trailer below.
