Verdict on Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a horror thriller following a small town recovering from a tragic event. They are looking to celebrate the holidays again. However, a killer has come to town to get revenge on the people involved in the incident the year before.
This is a movie based on the trailer from the Grindhouse movies. The latest one to get the full feature treatment for Eli Roth. This is a movie that feels a lot like ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’, using the holiday incident for revenge. It is filled with graphic brutal kills, even if we find ourselves supporting the killer throughout the movie. The added mystery is who is behind the mask, even if a few scenes eliminate potential suspects.
We get a fantastic opening sequence with pure chaos, gnarly effects and showing the worst in humanity. This has an excellent effects team behind everything going on, as well as giving us unique kills. Overall, this is a treat that horror fans can enjoy on a yearly anniversary.
