Fan films are getting a lot of attention these days. One of the films we’re keeping our eye on is Jason Rising whose trailer has just arrived. It gives off the same type of feel as the original Friday the 13th. It’s like taking a trip back in time to the 1980s, the golden age of horror films.
With the lawsuit over the Friday the 13th franchise being sort of over, Victor Miller (the original film’s writer) is reportedly aiming for a reboot. Hopefully, Jason Rising will tide you over until the next official film happens.
Karl Whinnery, James Sweet, and Robert Blanche are currently crowdfunding the project whose plotline involves cops and robbers.
In Jason Rising Officer Pete Daltry is on the hunt for a fugitive on the run after escaping from the Wessex County corrections farm and headed in the direction of Camp Crystal Lake. He is accompanied by two agents from the fugitive recovery team but when they enter the hallowed grounds of the camp they find out they are the hunted.
Robert Blanche, Jason Reynolds, Kyle Vahan, and Jerry Bell Jr. star. Dan Kyle is putting on the hockey mask as Jason Voorhees.
