EAST COAST PREMIERE
In four FRIDAY THE 13TH sequels, his brutish physicality has made his Jason Voorhees the one to beat. Dominating all four HATCHET films as the hulking Victor Crowley, he’s also given modern-day horror its own slasher icon. But how many people know the real Kane Hodder? Even the most ardent horror fan may not know about struggles with childhood bullying or the near-fatal accident he suffered in his early 20s. The only thing more impressive than Hodder’s slasher performances is, it turns out, the man himself.
Uncompromisingly honest, director Derek Dennis Herbert’s documentary TO HELL AND BACK lets Hodder recount his harrowing story in all of its personal and inspirational glory. With additional insight from fellow horror legends like Robert Englund and Bruce Campbell, TO HELL AND BACK is a powerful look at legit genre royalty. —Matt Barone
