Screen Media Will Release ‘Black Friday’ In November

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.
