It’s a difficult time we’re living in, as the Friday the 13th film franchise remains in legal purgatory. Without any new films in development, however, some fans have been taking matters into their own hands. For example, Womp Stomp Films has taken the liberty of producing their own line of Friday the 13th fan films, all of which have so far showcased an incredible amount of quality and attention to detail. In fact, many fans have considered their first fan film, titled Never Hike Alone, to be a true sequel to Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives. It doesn’t hurt either that it actually features actor Thom Mathews, who played Tommy Jarvis in Jason Lives. Now Mathews and Womp Stomp Films have put their heads together for another new fan film – this one set 3 months before the events of Never Hike Alone. This time we see Jason Voorhees placed into a winter setting, in a fan film that’s appropriately titled Never Hike in the Snow.
It’s a real treat for fans that have been wanting to see Jason Voorhees stalk Crystal Lake during the winter months. While it’s not exactly the theatrical reboot that everyone is hoping for, it’s certainly the next best thing.
In the new fan film, Never Hike in the Snow…
“Set three months prior to “Never Hike Alone,” “Never Hike in the Snow” follows the strange disappearance of Mark Hill (Courtlan Gordon), a Crystal Lake resident who went for a hike in the dead of winter and never came home.
As Local Wessex County Sheriff Rick Cologne (Vinny Guastaferro) and Deputy Allen Mabry (Bryan Forrest) search for answers, town local Tommy Jarvis (Thom Mathews) believes that his old nemesis Jason Voorhees (Vincente DiSanti) is to blame. Will Diana Hill (Anna Campbell) ever see her son again, or will her son become another lost victim of the cursed camp?”
The fan film was produced, written, and directed by Vincente DiSanti – and you can watch it below.
