Eli Roth is serving up a second Thanksgiving
November 30th, 2023 under Eli Roth. [ Comments: none ]

It took 16 years for Thanksgiving to go from a fake trailer in the Grindhouse double feature to being a real movie on the big screen. And good things come to those who wait.

Today, Eli Roth announced that we won’t have to wait that long for Thanksgiving 2. However, we will have to wait until 2025 because he wants to take a year off so that he and Jeff Rendell can “make it better than the first one.”

As a huge fan of Roth movies, who thinks Cabin Fever is one of the greatest Horror movies ever made, I think that Thanksgiving is his best film to date.

I just hope that he doesn’t do a Terrifier 2 and be gory just to be gory. There were some awesome kills in Thanksgiving, and he can top them, but it doesn’t have to be over-torturous.


Thanksgiving is going to be bloody this year

Are you sick of your family serving dry turkey on Thanksgiving? Well, this year, you can moisten it with blood instead of gravy, thanks to Eli Roth.

In 2007, Eli Roth created a mock trailer called Thanksgiving for the Grindhouse double feature. Now, 16 years, that film is becoming a reality, and the fourth Thursday of November will never be the same.

After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts – the birthplace of the holiday. Picking off residents one by one, what begins as random revenge killings are soon revealed to be part of a larger, sinister holiday plan. Will the town uncover the killer and survive the holidays…or become guests at his twisted holiday dinner table?

Thanksgiving stars Patrick Dempsey, Milo Manheim, Rick Hoffman, Addison Rae, and Gina Gershon, and will be released on November 17th.

Back in 2007, Eli Roth shot a fake trailer called Thanksgiving , which was included in the Grindhouse double feature.

On November 17th, 16 years later, that trailer is finally being released as a full movie that starts Rick Hoffman, Patrick Dempsey, and Milo Manheim.

Today, the teaser trailer was released for Roth’s upcoming film. And you know the saying, “Good thing comes to those who wait?” Well, it is true.

This looks so good. And I am so happy to have another Horror movie besides Thankskilling to watch on the fourth Thursday of November.

Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving is coming this Thanksgiving

Back in 2007, Eli Roth made a trailer for a fake movie called Thanksgiving that was part of the Grindhouse movies Planet Terror and Death Proof.

Sixteen years later, that trailer is becoming a reality. The movie is currently filming in Massachusetts and stars Patrick Dempsey, Rick Hoffman, Addison Rae, Gina Gershon, and Milo Manheim.

Not much is known, but Roth wrote this with the date announcement, “Arrive hungry. Leave stuffed. #ThanksgivingMovie only in cinemas November 17th. This year, there will be no leftovers. 🔪🦃”

This news makes me so happy because I watch Horror movies based on the holiday on the day of that holiday. And I desperately need a break from Thankskilling and Thankskilling 3. So, I hope this is good because there are not enough Turkey Day horror movies to choose from.

This is not the first fake trailer from the Grindhouse film to become a feature. In 2010, Robert Rodriguez released Machete with Danny Trejo.

Hear the stories of people who say A Ghost Ruined My Life
October 9th, 2021 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+, Eli Roth. [ Comments: none ]

Imagine you are living a normal life, and then all of a sudden, a ghost destroys everything? It happens more than you think, and Eli Roth is telling some of their stories about how A Ghost Ruined My Life every Friday on Discovery+.

Each week, the person whose life was ruined tells us their story while Roth reimagines what happened. For example, in the first episode, a mother of a young son moves into a house, and immediately the haunting begins. She calls in paranormal experts to help her, and they tell her to move. Since she can’t afford to do it, she stays. As time goes on, the entities get more and more evil and destructive. However, one day it goes too far. What will she do now?

In the second episode, a married couple is enjoying their life of wedded bliss until the father of one of the brides dies. After that, he starts to haunt his daughter-in-law, and he won’t leave her alone no matter where they go. Can their marriage survive? Can they convince him to move on?

Roth knows how to make docuseries interesting. He lets the story play out and doesn’t repeat everything like every two minutes. Plus, he knows how to direct the visuals, so you feel like you are experiencing what the haunted person was going through. That is the whole point of dramatizations, and he is a master of it.
