Synopsis: Set three months prior to “Never Hike Alone,” “Never Hike in the Snow” follows the strange disappearance of Mark Hill (Courtlan Gordon), a Crystal Lake resident who went for a hike in the dead of winter and never came home.
As Local Wessex County Sheriff Rick Cologne (Vinny Guastaferro) and Deputy Allen Mabry (Bryan Forrest) search for answers, town local Tommy Jarvis (Thom Mathews) believes that his old nemesis Jason Voorhees (Vincente DiSanti) is to blame. Will Diana Hill (Anna Campbell) ever see her son again, or will her son become another lost victim of the cursed camp?
Review: Never Hike Alone was a tension filled fun ride, it was the ultimate tribute to a legendary character and franchise. In all honesty, it was the sequel/reboot/re-imagining we needed.
Creator of the Never Hike series, Vincente DiSanti delivers us another entry that may just be better than some of the movies in the main franchise.
Vincente done one of the things every Friday The 13th fan wanted, he put Jason into a winter setting. Seeing Jason in the snow is going to have every fan talking for time to come.
Vincente has got fan favourite Tommy Jarvis back in the mix, played once again by the great Thom Mathews. Having Thom comeback to such an iconic role is a total hook especially as his original turn as Tommy in Jason Lives is a favourite among the audience.
Another Jason Lives alumni, Vinny Guastaferro returns as Rick Cologne. This time around he is Sheriff rather than deputy. His character arc is going to be interesting to explore.
Never Hike In The Snow is only 30 minutes long which is a shame as it’s such a gripping, fast paced story. Once the credits role the audience will no doubt want their next fix of the Vincente incarnation of Jason.
Vincente really knows what makes a great Friday The 13th movie and you can clearly tell he is a huge fan of the franchise. The opening of the movie features a gory kill that has such great effects, Tom Savini would love it. It’s very memorable and haunting.
In this entry Jason is very scary, he would be very reminiscent of Jason in part 6, but more menacing. This Jason is brutal, fast and unstoppable.
Overall Never Hike In The Snow is the Friday The 13th movie we have all wanted. Jason is back, more brutal than ever. With a merciless memorable opening sequence Never Hike In The Snow leaves you with the chills! This movie is a 5 star must see!!
For the next feature movie Hollywood need too take note of where to come for story and direction as Vincente has more than proved he truly owns this franchise.
