This should tide us over until the official reboot actually happens.
We recently asked you guys over on Twitter what you’d like to see most here on Bloody Disgusting in the months and years to come, and many of you replied that you’d like for us to share more fan films. Let’s be honest here. Most fan films are crap, and totally not worth sharing, but since you’re hungry for quality ones, we promise to keep our eyes peeled and share when we find them.
Speaking of which, Never Hike Alone looks pretty damn awesome.
Directed by Vincente DiSanti, Never Hike Alone is a 22-minute Friday the 13th fan film that’s headed our way this summer, and it’s set at the infamous Camp Crystal Lake. The short follows Kyle McLeod (Andrew Leighty), an avid backcountry hiker who, while on a solo backpacking trip, discovers the long lost remains of, you guessed it, Camp Crystal Lake. Ignoring the campfire ghost stories from his childhood, Kyle’s curious nature draws him in to see what is left of the camp since it was closed after the infamous Friday the 13th murders that took place in 1980.
Of course, there’s someone else out there in the woods…
Stranded alone in the middle of the wilderness, with a legendary mass murderer on his heels, Kyle’s survival skills will be put to the test like never before. Will he make it out of the woods alive or become another victim of the cursed camp?
Never Hike Alone is almost finished, and you can check out the trailer below.
