A horror park becomes deadly for real in HELL FEST, from veteran genre producer Gale Anne Hurd. Get an explicit taste of the thrills from the red-band trailer you can see past the jump, along with the latest poster.

CBS Films and Lionsgate release HELL FEST September 28. Gregory Plotkin (editor of GET OUT, HAPPY DEATH DAY and others) directed from a screenplay by Seth M. Sherwood and Blair Butler and Akela Cooper; Amy Forsyth, Reign Edwards, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Christian James, Roby Attal, Matt Mercurio and horror icon Tony Todd star. The synopsis: “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.”
