At RTX 2017, Rooster Teeth’s annual expo in Austin, Texas, they announced their newest project, Blood Fest, a horror comedy. While they weren’t able to say much more than they had begun work on the project at the time, co-founder and CEO, Matt Hullum, released more information in a blog post a few days ago. Blood Fest is “wild, funny, and terrifying love note to horror”.
According to Hullum, the plot goes a little something like this:
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.
The newest project from Rooster Teeth was written and directed by Owen Egerton, who also wrote and directed the films Follow and The Axe Murders of Villisca. Hullum went on to say that the company is more than excited to be working with such a unique, local talent. The director isn’t the only recognizable talent either! As of right now, the cast list includes Jacob Batalon (Spiderman: Homecoming), Tate Donovan (A Man In The High Castle), Robbie Kay (Heroes: Reborn), and some familiar faces like Barbara Dunkelman (RWBY, Day 5) and Nick Rutherford (Crunch Time). And, as always, we can expect to see some of the other Rooster Teeth personalities throughout the project as well.
As of right now, there is no release window for Blood Fest, but it will be released to Rooster Teeth FIRST members, their sponsorship program, before anyone else.
