Kane Hodder’s new film Balsam is set for release on December 14, 2021. Balsam is a feature-length documentary that follows Kane Hodder as he leads a team of paranormal investigators as they investigate The Grand Old Lady Hotel in Balsam, North Carolina.
The Grand Old Lady Hotel is a 112-year-old, 40,000 square foot hotel with a disturbing past. Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, the hotel is referred to by many as the Stanley Hotel of the south.
While Kane Hodder is notorious for his role as Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th franchise, Kane is an experienced paranormal investigator. He is a founding member of the Hollywood Ghost Hunters. Kane has investigated the Pico House in Los Angeles, California, with Zak Bagans on Ghost Adventures.
Director Tony H. Cadwell stated, “This is a paranormal investigation like no other. You have an experienced team lead by a horror icon. We had this amazing 40,000 square foot hotel all to ourselves to investigate. Nothing was scripted. We just went in and tried to document any paranormal activity that we could. The evidence that we collected in this film is just shocking.”
Kane stated, “I would have to say that this location is for me personally the most activity I guess you can say that I have witnessed.”
Balsam was executive produced by White Glove Productions’ Tom Sulkowski (Mechanic: Resurrection) and H13 Media’s Tony H. Cadwell, with Kane Hodder serving as a producer on the project. The documentary stars Kane Hodder, Amanda Hannah, Mark A. Richardson, and Maeve Ybanez.
Balsam is set for release on December 14, 2021, on DVD and VOD. DVDs can be pre-ordered now at all major retailers.
