Happy Thanksgiving Eh from Eli Roth

As part of the Grindhouse Double Feature out a few years back featuring Tarantino’s Deathproof & Rodriquez’s Planet (Squib-ville) Terror, noted directors were asked to submit faux trailers for films to be sandwiched between the two feature length films. The best of this batch, which really captures the early 80’s slasher genre in budget, music, narration and masked killer is Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving.

Roth has recently confirmed that he is moving forward on a script based on his Gobble Slasher opus. So perhaps in the next few years, Thanksgiving can finally be added to Holidays exploited by the horror genre. I mean if they can do a movie about April Fool`s Day and Groundhog Day, why not the long weekend of dry turkey, pumpkin pie and unwanted visits by freeloading relatives.

The horror, the horror.
