“Hallow Pointe” Offers A “New Blood” Reunion

I was shocked to see this many people from the Friday the 13th series, specifically The New Blood, involved with this movie. Besides the Friday Alumn, there are a lot of horror genre vets involved too. Reading the list of actors involved is like reading a Horror Hound Video Guide with a who’s who of horror actors. Here are the people from the Friday the 13th series that are involved:

- Kane Hodder
- Lar Park Lincoln
- John Carl Buechler
- Harry Manfredini

Here is some press about the film:

  1. I am very interested in this…

  2. I’m with you, man. I am hoping a trailer will pop up in the ner future so we can see ow this looks.

  3. This might be good.

  4. I like that poster. It reminds me of the early 90s’ vhs boxes of some straight to video classics. I’m a little excited to see this.

  5. Rumor has it that parts of it will be filmed where New Blood was filmed. That is what inspired my recent trip to Stockton. At first I was told that it was scouted for the F13 2 sequel, but I found disproved that by messaging Derek Mears and Brad Fuller. I will let you all know if Hallow Pointe will film at or near Stockton. I got a maybe? from Steve Barton AKA(Uncle Creepy Dread Central).

  6. The rumor that filming is out at Byrnes Lake has been debunked by Joe Knetter and Steve Barton.

  7. Would have been a cool link to the Friday the 13th series if they had filmed the movie there. ;)

  8. Yeah sounds good, looking forward to seeing the clip!

  9. DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

    My vision for Hallow Pointe is to bring back the feel of old school 80’s horror. I was really inspired by the Werewolf TV series and the feature film The Howling. Growing up a major horror fan, I feel today’s movies are lacking what made horror movies so great back in the 80’s. One of these being great creature development with hard core visual FX. After attending many horror conventions over the past few years, I feel Hallow Pointe will deliver to the fans what they are asking for. I am a director that listens to his audience, and wants to provide them what they demand.

    The creature for Hallow Pointe will be created by John Carl Buechler and Magical Media Industries, using a combination of stunt man/actor in a latex suit and utilizing fully operational mechanical FX puppets. I firmly believe that doing all the special effects visually and with very little CGI will definitely result in a better product. Don’t get me wrong, CGI has its place; blending and enhancing certain elements, but not for creating a character. I feel some of today’s filmmakers have become too reliant on it, and in the process disappoint their audience with cheap tricks.

    I personally handpicked my cast, which consists of many fan favorite horror veterans. I personally know a lot of them from being around the industry for several years. They have appeared in films such as The Howling, The Exorcist, Friday the 13th, CandyMan, My Bloody Valentine 3D and more. These actors have a large fan following, and do many special appearances every year. But the main reason I added them to Hallow Pointe is because of what they can bring to the film with their talent and personal attention to detail with character development. I have also casted the film with some up and coming young talent that have motivation, determination, and devotion for their craft. I have a strong cast that I know will bring a unique element to Hallow Pointe that has not been seen in film making in years.

    The technical direction that I plan to take, is very raw consisting of very intense cinema photography. This will deliver an edgy grittiness to the project, and I plan on making good use of shadows and low lighting to give it that creepy moody feeling of the old 80’s horror film. My plan and ultimate goal is to always make it completely clear what the real fear is while taking my audience on a crazy scary ride leaving them wanting more.
