Shriekfest Film Festival to Screen Friday the 13th Fan Film Never Hike Alone
The annual Los Angeles competition will kick off with an opening night gala October 4
The Shriekfest Film Festival, an international horror/sci-fi film and screenplay competition, has announced its 2018 finalists and is slated to screen Never Hike Alone, a feature film set in the Friday the 13th universe.
The film, written and directed by Vincente DiSanti, follows Kyle McLeod, played by Drew Leighty, who vlogs his way through uncharted Catskill trails. Throughout his journey, there is a familiar hockey-mask wearing slasher (played by DiSanti) following his every move.
In addition to Never Hike Alone and nine other feature films, Shriekfest will also screen more than 30 outstanding and diverse international short films, covering just about every aspect of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy.
The Shriekfest Film Festival runs October 4 – 7, 2018. The public is invited to an opening night party at Boardners/Club Sinister in Hollywood; all are also welcome to attend the screenings at the iconic Raleigh Studios on Melrose Ave.
Shriekfest, now in its 18th year, was created in July 2001 by Denise Gossett and has grown into the longest-running and one of the largest horror and sci-fi film festivals in the country. Shriekfest is bi-coastal for a second year as well, with Shriekfest Orlando kicking off on November 3.
Since its inception, Shriekfest has offered young and upcoming writers, actors and producers a chance to have their work screened and rated by peers.
