Hell Fest Synopsis: What Do We Know So Far?
The movie follows some friends that decide to go to “Hell Fest,” a carnival in celebration of Halloween with a horror theme. Natalie, Brooke, Taylor & Gavin are enjoying the night when they run into a woman who was trying to run away from “Other,” thinking that this is some game everyone ignores that.
“The Other” is actually a killer wearing a mask and is following the group with his “sinful” intentions. The killer successfully fits in with the Hell Fest because he was wearing a Halloween mask. The first victim of Other’s cruel killing spree is Gavin, using a mallet to smash his head.
At first, everyone is skeptical and unaware of the coming danger but then the killer starts to kill the group of friends one by one in a gruesome manner. The Other imprisons Natalie and Brooke in a maze as soon as people who were attending the event panicked and chaos broke out.
The police barge at a right time and save the girls while The Other escapes his suburban house. The movie ends on a very intriguing note as the audience finds out that the killer has a daughter, whom he gives a stuffed toy that he picked up from the carnival.
Hell Fest 2 Release Date: What Is Hell Fest 2 Renewal Status?
Even after garnering mixed reviews and surpassing the $5.5 million production budget at the box office, the movie wasn’t a big hit. Unfortunately, when a film performs poorly or flops at the box office, it doesn’t get a follow-up. Right now, it doesn’t seem likely that Hell Fest 2 will ever happen.
Even though there are various possibilities to follow the sequel and many requests from fans, there hasn’t been an official announcement regarding Hell Fest 2 renewal. Plotkin (director) in an interview said that there are numerous locations to shoot and plotlines that he can follow but that is not in his hands.
However, the makers can surprise fans by offering them a sequel. In that case, we can expect the arrival of “Hell Fest 2” around 2023 or later.
Hell Fest 2 Plot: What Can We Expect From The Sequel?
At the end of the movie, we find out that the killer has a daughter and unlike other slasher films where the killer is a psycho, The Other is a normal father living in a suburban home. We also saw that he had various masks in his cupboard which indicates that he often goes to these carnivals and murder people.
The villain in the movie kills because he can and he enjoys that fact. He has no personal grudge against the person he murders and even after committing many murders, he is able to live a normal life. How the hell?
There are various possibilities leading the storyline of Hell Fest 2. The movie can take off by answering questions like Will the murderer be captured? How many times has he committed the same killings? What drives him to commit murder, and why? Well, only Hell Fest 2 can answer these concerns.
