BLACK FRIDAY: First Look Images Assemble the Cast for the Holiday Shopping Day Gone Awry Comedy-Horror Film!

By: John M Jerva

When Black Friday was first announced, I was on board immediately. First of all, the cast is enough with Bruce Campbell, Devon Sawa and Michael Jai White and then add in the fact that they are battling mutated shoppers during the busiest shopping day of the year. It’s a winner no matter what in my book.

Well, Black Friday is set to debut at this year’s Fantastic Fest and we have some new images you can check out that features the cast in the gallery below which features White holding a staple gun so thumbs up to that.


A ragtag group of toy store employees get more than they bargained for when Black Friday shoppers mutate into violent monsters.


Everyone knows Black Friday is the worst day to work in retail. Something about a good deal turns even the sanest consumer into a wild animal. But the usual chaos and violence pales in comparison to what the employees of the “We Love Toys” store must face this time around.

Devon Sawa stars as a down-on-his luck father in the midst of divorce, lamenting his job as a low-level toy store employee. He and the other rambunctious, overworked crew of staffers are prepared for a typically exhausting Black Friday full of shoppers hungry for a deal, but they could never have expected the shoppers to turn into blood-hungry maniacs with only one goal: Come together to feed and combine their powers into something full-on Lovecraftian.

While Sawa continues his successful renaissance in the genre world with a refreshing turn as the cynical leader of the employees, it’s the inimitable Bruce Campbell who really surprises as the bumbling, uptight manager, Jonathan: a decidedly less heroic character than we’ve come to expect from him. Add in a healthy splash of outrageous gore and some ooey-gooey creature effects, and this is the soon-to-be-cult holiday horror movie you never knew you needed.

Casey Tebo’s horror-comedy is a delightfully entertaining, witty, and easily the best commentary on the dark side of capitalism since DAWN OF THE DEAD. We hope you find the deals you’re looking for this Black Friday, shoppers! (LOGAN TAYLOR)

Casey Tebo helmed the flick from a script penned by Andy Greskoviak. Also starring are Ryan Lee (Super 8), and Stephen Peck.
