This review is NOT about pure hate, overall fanboying, or biased views but A PERSONAL and HONEST perception of the fan film Never Hike Alone! The rating system based on this review is based on a scale of 5 stars each point will be given an official rating, and to remind this is my opinion! I AM NOT A ROTTEN TOMATOES CRITIC I AM A FAN OF THE SERIES! I KEEP IT REAL!
THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE FAN FILM KNOWN AS JASON RISING! IF YOU DO NOT LIKE SPOILERS DO NOT READ THIS POST BELOW! THIS IS AND WILL ONLY BE YOUR WARNING! SO GO WATCH THE FILM FIRST AND THEN COME BACK AND MAKE UP YOUR OWN REVIEW!
Here is the simple summary:
Summary of Jason Rising wrote:A group of escaped fugitives is on the run which they are hunted by an elite group of trackers and bounty hunters but little do they know they are the hunted when they enter the hallowed grounds of Jason Voorhees at Camp Crysta Lake.
In my honest opinion, the "Fugitive" and "Prisoner" is something done within Voorhees and Vengeance, but mind everyone this isn't a bad thing it can work better for some and not others, but this one played it smart and didn't give them "Backstories" since we wouldn't be rooting for them anyway just gives us a motive of why we shouldn't like the prisoners and why we should root for Jason to off them quickly!
From the gunplay to the up close and personal kills/combat were amazingly choreographed! whoever idea was it to add the gun conflict, which was mainly seen in Part VI and Part X it's something we don't usually see and I love seeing just how directors/writers would make their interpretation of Jason looking invulnerable and unstoppable
The composer did their best to keep in-line within the theme of the franchise, its something most fanfilms have tried to do their best to keep it as suspenseful and omenious as possible and I believe in my own opinion they kept to what Harry Manfredini wanted for the franchise he help composed for.
4/5 Stars from me! [/center]
As anyone knows, Im a big fan of practial effects gore and blood and this film had very decent amount of Gore, the most poorly given one in the film has to be the spinal rip scene, it looked way to fake even for me, overall they did amazing with fhe blood and I'll give them a 3 out of 5 stars for this category!
The kills were like NHA where its minimal but doesnt make it bad and if I have to give the best kill to the Hammer, it was simple yet brutal, and I have to say having about 5 or 6 in a Friday fanfilm isnt a bad thing and for me its about the brutality and Zombie Pamela Voorhees did just that, along with her death by the hands of Alice Hardy (Again, ha)
AGAIN THIS IS MY OPINION!
Pros and Cons
- Jason design looks fucking BADASS!
- No CGI that I could see whatsoever!
- Jason using a chainsaw!
- Surpising F13 Alumi's making an appearance.
- Sequel build-up so we could get a Jason Rising 2!
- No Mention of the Necronomicon ex mortis
- A nice version of Part 2 is being reimagined.
- Undead Pamela Voorhees!
- Mother and Son killing spree.
- Not enough of Undead Pamela Voorhees
- Pamela Voorhees was killed off near the climax...
- Not enough bodies...
- The Dick scene wasn't really necessary.
