Storyline

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 Timo Benthem

Trivia

An interesting omission in this film is that although Jason's mask has been replicated to be as close as possible to the classic hockey mask worn by Jason since him acquiring it from Shelly posthumously in Friday the 13th: Part III (1982) (even though the mask itself changes size, color and damage markings between films), it does not have the signature three red chevrons on the lower forehead and cheekbones. Canonicly Jason's mask is a Detroit Red Wings hockey mask as indicated by it's design and aforementioned chevrons. See more »

The Little "Fan Film That Could"...And DOES!
15 November 2019 | by dcscribe8860See all my reviews

(This film was featured at the Third Annual Sin City Horror Fest.)

Say the phrase "fan film", and usually it's enough to inspire cringing and lots of eye-rolling responses, especially when they're as awful as they can possibly get. But good news! NEVER HIKE ALONE isn't one of them!

A pleasant diversion from the recent legal SNAFUS entangling the FRIDAY franchise, director Di Santi's "love letter to Jason Voorhees" stars DREW LEIGHTY as social media sensation "Kyle McLeod", whose specialty is taking on the Great Outdoors, and photographing his adventures for his fans in real time. His latest hike takes him into uncharted territory, where he decides to cut his traveling time in half, through an area clearly marked with a "NO TRESSPASSING" sign. (There's Red Flag Numero UNO.) It gets really dicey, once he realizes that the actual place he's ventured into is...the spot where a certain camp was once located, and has been attached to some pretty gruesomely legendary stories...stories which he soon discovers were all too true.

With a minimal cast (including a franchise icon whom fans will love seeing), Di Santi manages to keep the suspense taut and gets maximum scares out of the scenario that don't feel cheap or unearned. He also does triple duty here, not just by writing and directing, but also by putting his own spin on Jason, in a way that other "Jason" actors (especially Kane Hodder) would gladly stamp with their 'Seal Of Approval'. And the ending implies a possible sequel...one I personally wouldn't mind seeing one little bit. New Line could do a lot worse than to give Vincente a shot at doing whatever the next installment in the franchise is...he's certainly proven himself with a film that excels beyond what normally passes for a "fan film".
