Eli Roth‘s Thanksgiving is a Plymouth-based slasher adapted from his memorable mock trailer featured in the Grindhouse double feature. The horror film stars Patrick Dempsey as the town’s sheriff and marks the first collaboration between Dempsey and Roth. The film also marks another first for Dempsey, and it’s kind of surprising. According to Roth, Dempsey’s Thanksgiving New Englander accent is no acting job, and the film is the first time the actor uses his native accent on-screen. If you need clarification on what that accent sounds like, think of Jeremy Renner in The Town, Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting, or Jack Nicholson in The Departed.
