Brownspace Films has released the first official trailer for Friday the 13th: Vengeance today to the excitement of die-hard fans of the iconic horror franchise. The fan film featuring C.J. Graham, Jason Brookes, and the late Steve Dash is now in post-production and is aiming for a late June release.

The film picks up 30 years after where Part 6 left off and features franchise alumnus Graham as Elias Voorhees, Jason’s father. Shortly after he returns to Camp Crystal Lake, grisly murders begin to occur. In search of her father, Tommy, Angelica Jarvis also arrives with hopes of taking care of her family’s nemesis, Jason Voorhees (Brookes), once and for all.

Sadly, Friday the 13th: Vengeance became Steve Dash’s last film role. Shortly after filming his scenes as Sheriff Jason Realotti, he passed away on December 18th, 2018. Cast and crew were devastated by this loss that also shocked the horror community, so much so that they released shirts that honored the fallen actor.

The two minute trailer sets the scene and introduces us to Angelica Jarvis (Kelly Tappan). Some of the more striking moments of the short clip come from Elias standing by Pamela’s grave and then face-to-face with his son at the end.

What made fans ever more excited for this fan film the announcement earlier this week that legendary composer Harry Manfredini would be scoring the film. Fans will recognize that name as the man behind the music for the Friday the 13th franchise, in addition to hundreds of other projects.

At a time where lawsuits are preventing an official next film of the franchise to be made, at least for now, Friday the 13th: Vengeance is proving to be the next best thing. After seeing the trailer, fans seem to be plenty content with that.

Growing up in Northern Ontario, Canada, I still remember that first time watching The Exorcist as a kid. While others looked away, I took in every pea green puke and head-spinning moment that I could. Since then, horror and music have become passionate hobbies in my life. Although new to the convention scene, I’ve been collecting both horror and music items for over two decades. Two moments that make these hobbies worthwhile were coming face to face with Freddy Krueger himself, the legendary Robert Englund, and shaking hands with guitar icon Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. I started Kaotic Notes back in 2015 to house the numerous reviews, interviews, photos, and videos that I had done, and continue to do so to this day. It’s only rock and roll with a touch of blood and gore. What can go wrong?!
