Eli Roth, a well-known horror film director, is returning to the genre with his latest film, Thanksgiving. The movie is an homage to the over-the-top slashers of the 1980s and tells the story of a slasher who terrorizes a small Massachusetts town with the intention of turning its inhabitants into a Thanksgiving carving board.
