‘Black Friday’ Trailer: Bruce Campbell and Devon Sawa Help Spread the Christmas Fear!
October 25, 2021
George A. Romero took on American consumerism with his masterpiece Dawn of the Dead and now filmmaker Casey Tebo looks to put a modern spin on it with Black Friday, which kicks off the holiday season by spreading some Christmas fear.
Bloody Disgusting scored an exclusive world premiere of the film’s first trailer and poster art, which highlight horror favorites Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead films) and Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Syfy’s “Chucky”) stuck in a toy store with a horde of “demonic” shoppers.
“On Thanksgiving night, a group of disgruntled toy store employees begrudgingly arrive for work to open the store at midnight for the busiest shopping day of the year. Meanwhile, an alien parasite crashes to Earth in a meteor. This group of misfits led by store manager Jonathan (Campbell) and longtime employee Ken (Sawa) soon find themselves battling against hordes of holiday shoppers who have been turned into monstrous creatures hellbent on a murderous rampage on Black Friday.”
The cast also includes Ivana Baquero (Pan’s Labyrinth), Ryan Lee (Goosebumps), Stephen Peck, and Michael Jai White (Spawn). The film was composed by Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump.
Screen Media is set to release the horror-comedy timed with the holiday season, releasing it in theaters on November 19th and on VOD platforms November 23rd.
