‘Never Hike Alone’ Premieres This Friday, October 13th!

Stay out of the woods and Never Hike Alone! Womp Stomp Films is taking you back to Camp Crystal Lake in their crowdfunded short horror film set in the world of Friday the 13th. The story centers on hiker Kyle McLeod (Drew Leighty) who discovers the long lost remains of the infamous camp. Dismissing the Friday the 13th murders as urban legend, Kyle explores the area. But someone still lurks among the trees and he doesn’t like trespassers in his woods. As Kyle continues exploring, he comes face to face with terror: Jason Voorhees (Brian Forrest) himself!

We checked in on Womp Stomp and got great news. The film is finished! Even better news: the release date is this Friday, October 13!
