Frightfest 2017 Interview: The Director & Producer of ‘To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story’

by Stuart Wright

In his penultimate FrightFest 2017 interview of the day, host Stuart Wright talks to To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story director Derek Dennis Herbert and producer Andrew Barcello about their film, which screens at the festival on Saturday 26th August.

Meet the man behind the Jason Voorhees and Victor Crowley masks. Kane Hodder is cinema’s most prolific killer and this gut wrenching but inspiring documentary tells you why. It’s the harrowing story of the stuntman overcoming a dehumanizing childhood filled with torment and bullying. After surviving a near-death burn accident he rose up through Hollywood’s horror ranks to become Jason in the FRIDAY THE 13th series making countless movie goers forever terrified of hockey masks and summer camp. After decades of watching Kane Hodder on screen here’s the uniquely human story about one of the genre’s most vicious monsters.

The Horror Channel Frightfest takes place August 24th – 28th 2017 at both the Empire Cinema and Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square.
