At RTX Austin last month, I announced that Rooster Teeth will be making a horror-comedy movie called Blood Fest. That was all I could say about it at that time, but I’m back to give you more details. Get ready, because cameras are ready to roll.
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 community and new audiences. Blood Fest is written and directed by a great guy named Owen Egerton. His screenplays have been on the industry-famous Black List two times, and he wrote and directed the films Follow and The Axe Murders of Villisca. We’re really excited to be working with him.
You already know that Blood Fest is a horror comedy, but we can finally elaborate on that. Here’s the official description:
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.
Blood Fest stars Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Robbie Kay (Heroes: Reborn), some random person named Barbara Dunkelman (RWBY), a scoundrel named Nick Rutherford (Crunch Time), and Tate Donovan (The Man in the High Castle). You’ll also see some familiar Rooster Teeth faces when you least expect them.
It’ll be released on Rooster Teeth FIRST at some point in the future. We can’t wait to share it with you.
