FIRST LOOK: ‘Hell Fest’ Promises a Horrific Ride July 13, 2018 by Hiko Mitsuzuka (@TheFirstEcho) Amy Forsyth in HELL FEST (CBS Films and Lionsgate) A slasher film about someone stalking teens at a horror-themed amusement park? Book us a ticket! Director Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) have teamed up to bring us some fresh frights this September with Hell Fest, a thriller about a masked serial killer turning a theme park into “his own personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends while the rest of the patrons believe that it’s all part of the show.” And we’ve got your first-look pics here (just in time to celebrate Friday the 13th): The synopsis: College student Natalie (Amy Forsyth) is visiting her childhood best friend Brooke (Reign Edwards) and her roommate Taylor (Bex 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. Ever 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 the girls and their boyfriends who will fight to survive the night.
