Colyn n Morris,
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
A hiker runs through the woods and run into the remains of recreational camp Crystal Lake, the camp as we all known as the home for the Friday the 13th episodes throughout the years. Apparently Jason still resides there as the hiker soon discovers. After that its Jason at its best again, as he joins up with his favorite weapon, the machete. Will the hiker survive or not, that's the question. So far only one ever did, not even Freddy Krueger.Written by
Calculating Jason's age from his birth date of 13th June 1946 (a Thursday the 13th) and accept the film takes place on the films release date 13th October 2017 (a Friday the 13th), Jason would be 71 years, 4 months and 1 day old in this film. The film acknowledges the Pamela Voorhees murders occurring in the early 1980's according to Kyle's recollection (Friday, June 13, 1980 in the original Friday the 13th (1980)), but does not clarify which other entries it acknowledges if any. This is pertinent to whether Jason is alive or undead as he is from Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) onwards. The film leaves it vague and leaves his canon/mortality up to the viewer as Jason's makeup could be taken either way and does not indicate any canon scars or identifying marks such as the axe-mark on the left forehead acquired in Friday the 13th Part III (1982) and included in every film thereafter, (including pre-placed on the replacement mask in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) after the original mask from Friday the 13th Part III was destroyed at the end of the preceding film Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988).)

Not that you'd know by the cover but Never Hike Alone is a Friday 13th fan film, in fact it's hard to believe since the whole thing looks so darn professional.
It tells the story of a guy making a video for his social media site, he's travelling through the forest and comes across the remnants of an all too familiar camp. Before he knows it he's being pursued by everyones favorite hockey mask wearing psychopath.
Now again let's be clear this doesn't look like a fan film and if you didn't know better could almost be confused with being an actual entry into the franchise.
Standing at around the 50 minute mark with fantastic production quality and including the return of Tommy Jarvis (Played by franchise alumni
Thom Mathews) this is very impressive.
As much as I like Jason I've tended to find the Friday 13th series quite underwhelming. For the most part I've never thought they were bad, just not as monumental as most believe themselves. This however is very respectable and I'd love to see the creators get their hands on funds to make a feature movie (Even if it is about Jason).
The cast do a solid job, it's well scored and I'd consider it essential viewing for fans of the franchise.
Looks and sounds considerably too good to be a "Fan film"
Jason was far too small
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Recording yourself breaking the law and then uploading it onto your social media page for the world to see makes perfect sense
We need more chokeslams through tables in the movies
