What if the characters in horror movies came to life? Would you be able to survive the cinematic killers and unforgiving rules to surviving a scary movie (for reference, watch Randy's house party speech in Scream)? A horror festival becomes all too real for a group of teenagers in the first teaser trailer for Blood Fest, which debuted on EW ahead of its world premiere at SXSW.

Written and directed by Owen Egerton (Follow), Blood Fest was produced by Rooster Teeth and will make its world premiere on March 9th at the SXSW Film Festival. According to EW, the movie's cast includes Robbie Kay, Seychelle Gabriel, Jacob Batalon, Barbara Dunkelman, Tate Donovan, Nick Rutherford, Chris Doubek, Rebecca Wagner, and Zachary Levi.

We'll be providing live coverage of SXSW in Austin later this month, so be sure to check back for more updates on Blood Fest, which sounds like it should be right up your alley if you enjoyed The Cabin in the Woods, The Final Girls, or Bryan Smith's The Late Night Horror Show.

"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."
