No other horror franchise has spawned more fan films than Friday the 13th – I have no solid facts to back that up, just making a statement based on the amount of them that have crossed my desk over the years. Something else I’ve noticed is that the quality of the productions has steadily improved as well.
This brings me to the reason for this post.
A new fan film just recently landed – titled JASON RISING and it brings one of the franchise’s classic final girls back for another round with Jason and his mom. That final girl would be none other than Alice Hardy – once again portrayed by Adrienne King. Sure – she was killed off in Part 2 but for the purposes of this film, she’s still alive and looking to kick some Vorhees ass.
The cool thing is – you can watch the full film right now – for free – check it out below. It’s just under an hour long and I hereby declare it worthy of your time.
If you want all the facts about the flick – got you covered – here’s everything you need or want to know:
Jason Rising: A Friday the 13th Fan Film | Full Film | (2021) HD A fan tribute to Friday the 13th, JASON RISING follows Wessex County Police Officer Pete Daltry (Kyle Vahan) and his Deputy Eve Glover (Anna Campbell), along with U.S. Marshals Jed (Jason Reynolds) and Bear (Jerry Bell Jr.), hot on the trail of three escapees (Lisa Sorenson, Jennie Vaughn, Elizabeth Garrett) from the Wessex County Corrections Farm. Soon after realizing their chase has led them onto the cursed grounds of Camp Crystal Lake, Daltry quickly discovers that they are the ones being hunted by the undead mass murderers Jason Voorhees (Dan Kyle) and his deranged mother Pamela (Alyxandria McCormack).
