The latest challenger to Jason Voorhees’ throne is out for blood this summer.

Wild Eye Releasing has FREAK on the way in May. No relation to the just-released Bianca Crespo psychochiller of the same title, it was written and directed by Lucky Cerruti and stars Jameson Batt, Dorran Boucher, Cerruti, Annachristi Cordes, Leslie Dame, Matthewi Sorenson and Hope Stamper. The synopsis: “A bloody legend becomes all too real for a group of kids heading out for a weekend of camping and partying. Will they survive what waits for them in the woods?”
