Yes, you are correct. It is a Thanksgiving horror movie. It’s a comedy-horror movie, but so awful. If you enjoy laughing at a bad movie, definitely add this one to your list. A gem of its own kind. 

Hannah and Her Sisters 

This Woody Allen film is set mostly in the time between two Thanksgivings. It remains one of Allen’s best films.
