'Grindhouse' trailers to become full features

Thanksgiving copy

Last year, we wrote about rumors that Machete, a fake movie whose trailer was featured in Grindhouse, would be turned into an actual full-length feature. Now, not only is Machete in production, but another movie advertised in a Grindhouse trailer is on the road to reality. Gore guru Eli Roth tells Cinematical that he's ready to start work soon on Thanksgiving, a slasher flick that harkens back to the holiday-themed horrors of the 1980s. (You can watch Roth's original trailer, packed with nudity and ultraviolence, over on IGN.) If these films end up slaying at the box office, I'm sure it won't be long before we hear from Rob Zombie's Werewolf Women of the SS, Edgar Wright's Don't or the fan-created underdog, Hobo With a Shotgun.
