What began 16 years ago with a fake trailer for a Tarantino film will become reality in two days’ time. That’s when the bloody horror thriller Thanksgiving hits theaters
Movies start out in all sorts of absurd ways, but as fake trailers? It’s the same with Thanksgiving, whose trailer was once shown in the supporting program for Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof. Without the movie actually existing. However, that will change 16 years later, as the horror thriller is actually coming to cinemas in two days’ time.
Tarantino’s horror dream: Thanksgiving turns people into turkeys
Thanksgiving revolves around the small town of Plymouth in the US state of Massachusetts. After a mass panic there on Black Friday ends tragically, a stranger starts a gruesome series of Thanksgiving-themed murders
Watch the trailer for Thanksgiving here:
The idea for Thanksgiving began with the double feature of Death Proof and Planet Terror, whose B-movie concept was to be enriched by fake trailers for non-existent films. After a storm of enthusiasm from fans, some were actually made into feature films. Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun, for example, were released before Thanksgiving. However, a Nazi horror with Nicolas Cage is still waiting to be made
When is Thanksgiving coming to the movies?
Thanksgiving will be released in German cinemas on November 16, 2023. Among others, Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy) and Rick Hoffman (Suits) can be seen in front of the camera. The film was directed by horror expert Eli Roth (Hostel).
