Fans of the Friday the 13th franchise is fully aware that Jason Voorhees doesn’t stay dead for long, but sadly he has been dead and buried since 2009 (unless you count the video game) due to lawsuits and other conflicts. Cody Faulk (Three Bodies One Grave), Chris Plaushin (Three Bodies One Grave) and Wet Paint Pictures have decided to resurrect one of the most notorious cinematic serial killers with their fan film Voorhees.
Voorhees stars Danielle Sandler (Zeke), Jeremy “Ogre” Amos (Bigfoot!), Eileen Sugameli (A Witch in Salem) and more. Unlike every other film to include Mr. Voorhees, the identity of the actor portraying him is being kept a secret this time.
A crime has been committed…
Criminals have stolen a small fortune from a bank. Instead of trying to outrun the police they plan to lay low in a remote location with a notorious past until the heat is off. Their efforts to find sanctuary become complicated when they cross paths with a sinister force that has long been forgotten.
“Voorhees” is an independent horror fan film that brings a dark and sadistic vision to the iconic Friday the 13th franchise. This film stays true to the horror that has thrilled fans for many decades while bringing our own unique story line.
Our talented cast and crew have worked tirelessly to bring this story to life. “Voorhees” promises old school horror, bloody practical effects, and a Grindhouse cinematic look and feel.From the ‘Voorhees’ Indiegogo
Anybody catch the nod to Freddy vs Jason?
The folks behind Voorhees have launched an Indiegogo campaign to help finish funding the film (like other fan films, all money raised will be going to covering the costs of the film). This is where you will get a chance to win a screen used hockey mask signed by Voorhees and Cody Faulk. All you have to do is pledge $10 to be entered into the raffle.
No official release date has been set, but the Indiegogo Blu-ray perk says they are expected to ship in March of this year, but only time will tell.
