You may recognize him from Inglourious Basterds, The Idol, and more, but Eli Roth fans know he’s a filmmaker first and foremost. Such R-rated cult classics like Cabin Fever and Hostel come from Roth’s arguably (and wonderfully) twisted mind, and now he’s back with yet another blood-soaked horror entry, known simply as Thanksgiving. Does the name sound familiar? Maybe you tuned into Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse double-feature back in 2007 and saw that gloriously horrific faux trailer of the same name, which featured a masked serial killer terrorizing a Massachusetts community on Turkey Day. How about that epic trampoline kill? Oof.
The iconic filmmaker spoke to MovieWeb about his thrilling new B-movie starring Patrick Dempsey, who was finally able to use his New England accent.
