Thanksgiving 2 Will Have A Lot To Live Up To

Directed by Eli Roth from a script by Roth and Jeff Rendell, Thanksgiving stars Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae, Jalen Thomas Brooks (“Walker”), Milo Manheim (Zombies), Nell Verlaque (“Big Shot”), Gina Gershon (“Chucky”), Tim Dillon and Rick Hoffman (Hostel). It is an extension of Roth’s fake trailer from 2007’s Grindhouse, which stole the show for some. We have been clamoring for the film to be made ever since, and Roth has kept his promise to make it, and I loved it. Now, do I love the idea of this becoming a franchise? No. But I could be wrong; maybe lightning will strike twice. This is Roth’s best film as a director; maybe he will be just as inspired by a sequel.

Thanksgiving getting a sequel proves that if a horror film succeeds, it will become a franchise. That gets to be annoying, as not every story needs a sequel. Slashers have always gotten sequels, though, and The Carver was a good one. How he made it to the next one will take some clever writing, but if anyone can pull it off, it is Roth and Rendell.
