Attention all shoppers! Be careful of the spilled blood in the front of the store!

Black Friday–a feature film that shows the true horrors of a shopping spree–was picked up by Screen Media this week for distribution in November, according to a report in Variety. No specific debut date has been set at this time, but since the actual Black Friday is Nov. 26 this year, that seems like a safe bet.

The film–which boasts an all-star genre cast of Bruce Campbell, Devon Sawa, Michael Jai White, Ivana Baquero, Ryan Lee and Stephen Peck–is directed by Casey Tebo from a screenplay by Andy Greskoviak.

Black Friday, set on the busiest shopping night of the year, follows a group of “disgruntled toy store employees” who must defend themselves against “legions of holiday shoppers when a mysterious alien parasite turns them into monstrous creatures hellbent on a murderous rampage,” according to the official synopsis.

Director Tebo described the script as “such a blast,” adding that it reminded him of such holiday horror favorites as Gremlins or Krampus. “It’s imaginative, original, scary, fun and the right bit of ridiculous–and that’s all the things I want to see in a movie,” he said.
