Leave room for pumpkin pie.
Thanksgiving–the Eli Roth horror pic based on his fake trailer that appeared in 2007’s Grindhouse double-feature–hits theaters today–Nov. 17–and the acclaimed filmmaker is already looking ahead to a possible bloody future.
Of course, a lot depends on how horror fans accept–or reject–this first film. “I would love to (do a sequel),” Roth told The Boston Globe. “I had such a great time in that world. I have a lot more to say–but that’s up to the fans.”
With Thanksgiving, Roth said he wanted to “fill the November movie gap. I remember being so depressed Nov. 1 when all those Christmas movies started. I had to wait until January or February for another horror movie to come out.”
Roth added that “if people come out and see the movie, I will dive back in and I will try to outdo myself with a sequel.”
Thanksgiving–directed and produced by Roth from a screenplay he wrote with Jeff Rendell–follows a mysterious killer known as John Carver as he stalks the streets of Plymouth, Mass. And, now that Thanksgiving has arrived, Carver wants to make a bloody carving board out of the local residents. That’s not cranberry sauce.
