Although many actors have become typecast or mainstays in the horror genre (that’s certainly not a bad thing because it can keep you employed for life), there aren’t as many who can say that they’ve inhabited more than one iconic role. Fortunately for Kane Hodder, the former Jason Voorhees has kept lovers of the macabre entertained in recent years as Victor Crowley in the Hatchet series of films. Granted, the latter is less mainstream than the former, but our point remains valid.
Now, with the release of Victor’s eponymous adventure imminent, the folks at Coming Soon have decided to share the first five minutes from the flick. As we can see, the lovebirds played by Jonah Ray and Kelly Vrooman don’t fare very well, but it’s the cameo made by Tyler Mane that put a smile on my face. As the more knowledgeable among you will know, he starred as Michael Myers in both of Rob Zombie’s Halloween movies, so to see him share a scene – no matter how brief – with a guy who played Jason Voorhees is a real treat indeed.

Also starring Perry Shen, Laura Ortiz (The Hills Have Eyes), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie) and Brian Quinn (Impractical Jokers), writer/director Adam Green’s latest picture is described as follows:
“In 2007, over forty people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp. Over the past decade, lone survivor Andrew’s (Parry Shen) claims that local legend Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder, Friday the 13th series) was responsible for the horrific massacre have been met with great controversy. But when a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Andrew must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past.”
And don’t forget that it’s recommended you stick around after the credits begin to roll because Green has a few surprises in store regarding what’s to come:
“As you’ll see with Victor Crowley (don’t miss the scene that happens in the middle of the end credits!) the series is set up for more stories. I have a master plan and laid the seeds in this new one for where it’s going to go… but unfortunately, in today’s new era where most stream films and too many pirate them illegally, we can’t be too sure that we’ll get to make more of them. We hope that we can continue making one every few years.”
Victor Crowley arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on February 6 and can be purchased on Amazon.
