Never Hike Alone

Womp Stomp Films is excited to announce the launch of a new Kickstarter campaign for it’s Friday the 13th fan film, Never Hike Alone!

Director Vincente DiSanti has partnered with producers Barry Jay, Kyle Klein, and Daniel Evans to create a unique, high-quality take on the Friday the 13th universe. The film will star Andrew Leigthy, with DiSanti tackling the roll of the legendary Jason Voorhees.

Intended to be a 22-minute short film, Never Hike Alone will follow the story of Kyle McLeod (Leighty), an avid backcountry hiker who, while on a solo backpacking trip, discovers the long lost remains of Camp Crystal Lake. Ignoring the campfire stories from his childhood, Kyle’s curious nature draws him in to see what is left of the camp, which has been closed ever since the infamous 1980 Friday the 13th murders.

Kyle’s search of the camp turns deadly when he is attacked by Camp Crystal Lake’s last remaining resident, Jason Voorhees. Stranded alone in the middle of the wilderness with a legendary mass murderer on his heels, Kyle’s survival skills will be put to the test like never before. Will he make it out of the woods alive or become another victim of the cursed camp?

Founded in early 2016, Womp Stomp Films was created by Vincente DiSanti as an avenue to pursue live-action genre entertainment. Never Hike Alone marks DiSanti’s second directorial
effort after serving many years as a story consultant and directors assistant on projects such as Free Birds (2013), The Red Room (2015), Rock Dog (2017), and Duck, Duck, Goose (2017).

With a fundraising goal of $13,000, funding from this new campaign will allow Womp Stomp to complete the final scenes of principle photography, which include a high quantity of special make up effects, and a variety of post production services.

In exchange for financial pledges, they’re offering a number of valuable rewards, stickers, pins, t-shirts, posters, producing credits, props from the film including Jason’s costume, and even a special guest role in the film. The Kickstarter campaign for Never Hike Alone will come to a close on Friday, February 17, 2016.

Their new trailer, which you can see below, consists of mostly never before scene footage, including the first big reveal a 30+ year old abandoned camp. As a product of fan fiction, Womp Stomp Films is acting independently outside the official Friday the 13th franchise.

DiSanti and his crew are diligent about complying with all rules set by the common fan fiction restrictions, including making Never Hike Alone a non-profit venture. Upon completion of the project, they will be donating all remaining funding to the Penny Pines Reforestation Program.
