But uninvited guests ruin the carefully planned evening, toppling the carefully built artifices of personality constructed around us.

The lazy Susan is set and the table is waiting for you to join us for this retro tinged homespun slice of holiday stalk'n'slash, replete with Turkey Day Terror.
Meet the Brimstons. They're a normal American family. They have normal jobs. Live normal lives. Except every November, they hunt down anybody who doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving. Lisa-Marie is a moody college dropout living at home with her annoying parents. Tasked with working on Thanksgiving, she and the other employees of the local greasy spoon are united in their shared misery over tending to an empty restaurant over the holiday. Unfortunately for the diner’s wait staff, an already shitty holiday is about to get worse thanks to the Brimston clan, who are seeking unwilling guests for their yearly ritual of harvesttime cannibalism and slaughter.
Who will survive? And what will be left for DINNER?
