In 2007, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez brought us Grindhouse, a gritty, blood-soaked double feature that tipped its hat to the low budget exploitation movies that played during the 1970’s. The film featured some really fun trailers for fake movies. Rob Zombie, Eli Roth, Edgar Wright, and Rodriquez were each responsible for one of the trailers.
The trailers were such a huge hit with fans that one of them has been turned into a movie. Machete (directed by Robert Rodriguez) hits theaters on September 3rd.
Now comes word that Eli Roth’s trailer for Thanksgiving will be made into a full length feature film. Roth confirmed the news with Cinema Blend, and said that the movie is in the beginning stages.
The Thanksgiving trailer features the town of Plymouth, Massachusetts celebrating the holiday while a serial killer dressed as a Pilgrim goes on a decapitation spree. It is deliciously gruesome and the voice over narration is to die for (pun intended.) This year, there will be no leftovers!
Roth has recruited friend Jeff Rendell to help pen the movie. Rendell appears in the trailer as the deranged Pilgrim. The two hope to write the story as soon as Roth finishes doing publicity for The Last Exorcism, which he produced. That film will be released this Friday, August 27.
Check out the trailer for Thanksgiving after the jump. Warning: very NSFW.
