Hungry for a new Friday the 13th film? We think you’re gonna love this one.
In celebration of Friday the 13th yesterday, Womp Stomp Films and director Vincente DiSanti released the nearly feature length Never Hike Alone, a fan-funded fan film that we told you about earlier this year. We’ve been looking forward to this one for several months now, and we’re happy to report that it damn sure does not disappoint.
Suspenseful, scary and incredibly well made, Never Hike Alone is bar none one of the best fan films we’ve ever seen. It’s also the best thing to happen to Friday fans since Friday the 13th: The Game, effectively scratching the itch we’ve been feeling from Paramount’s 8-year inability to get another official movie off the ground.
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?”
Check out Never Hike Alone, which has a final act that’ll make you smile wide!
