What with the ongoing legal battle over who owns the rights to the franchise, it’s no wonder that an increasing number of Friday The 13th fan films are being made. The latest is called Jason Rising, which follows:
“Wessex County police officer Pete Daltry along with two local bounty hunters, Jed and Bear, hot on the trail of three escapees from the Wessex County Corrections Farm. Soon after realising their chase has led them onto the cursed grounds of Camp Crystal Lake, Daltry and his men quickly discover they are the ones being hunted.”
If the trailer below whets your appetite, then why not click here and pitch in. Frankly, I’m all for keeping Jason Voorhees slaying on our screens even if they’re not cinema ones and the films aren’t ‘official’, so I might just contribute myself.
Jason Rising is directed by James Sweet, written by Robert Blanche, Maurice J Cardwell and Vincente DiSanti, and stars Dan Kyle, Jason Reynolds, Jerry Bell Jr, Kristina Haddad and Kyle Vahan Kyle Vahan.
