Fans flock to a festival celebrating the most iconic horror movies, only to discover that the charismatic showman behind the event has a diabolical agenda. As attendees start dying off, three teenagers with more horror-film wits than real-world knowledge must band together and battle through every madman, monstrosity and terrifying scenario if they have any hope of surviving.
“As we expand our film slate, we’re keeping our focus on fresh, ambitious projects like Blood Fest,” said Rooster Teeth co-founder and CEO Matt Hullum. “At Rooster Teeth, we’ve always prided ourselves on taking chances to support uniquely talented artists, and we’re excited to continue that tradition as we develop more films for our audience and beyond.”
I am thrilled to be collaborating with Rooster Teeth on this wild, funny and terrifying love note to horror,” said Egerton. “Rooster Teeth is a mind-blowing playpen of talent and energy. They are the perfect company to bring Blood Fest to life.”
