‘Friday the 13th’ Fan Film Heads To DVD, Shows Popularity Of Franchise

Published

on

Paramount pictures better pull their collective heads out of their asses. Once again, proof has popped up that the ‘Friday the 13th’ franchise is in high demand and that fans want a brand new film.

A ‘Friday the 13th’ fan made film, entitled ‘Never Hike Alone’, is a 50-minute short that proved that not only can the franchise birth a successful film based off of it’s popularity, but that a film can be suspenseful, thrilling, gripping and scary without a high-budget production budget (hey, Platinum Dunes, you can learn a thing or two).

The fan-funded short is now headed to Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and limited edition VHS all thanks to a wildly successful Indiegogo campaign that launched on Thursday and, as of this writing, has raised over $22,000. It far exceeded the $13,000 goal.

Further illustrating the point, $13,000 was raised in just 20-minutes today, according to Bloody-Disgusting.

So, Paramount, if a fan-made film can prove to be successful, and the wildly popular ‘Friday the 13th: The Game‘ continues to show that there is fan interest, don’t you think it’s about time for a new movie?

If you’re not going to do anything about it, then sell the rights to someone who will.

By the way, here is the fan-made movie that is making all this noise.

The Last Thing Mary Saw

Shudder has released a new clip for the upcoming period horror movie ‘The Last Thing Mary Saw’, which was acquired by the streaming platform last year and is set to arrive on Thursday, January 20th.

Isabelle Fuhrman, Rory Culkin, Stefanie Scott, and Judith Roberts star in the film, which is set in 1843, written and directed by Edoardo Vitaletti.

According to the synopsis: “As the story jumps back in time, we witness Mary, raised in a repressively religious household, finding fleeting happiness in the arms of Eleanor (Isabelle Fuhrman), the home’s maid. Her family, who believe they are seeing, speaking, and acting on God’s behalf, view the girls’ relationship as an abomination, to be dealt with as severely as possible.

“The couple attempts to carry on in secret, but someone is always watching, or listening, and the wages of perceived sin threaten to become death, with the tension only heightened by the arrival of an enigmatic stranger (Rory Culkin) and the revelation of greater forces at work.”
