friday the 13th,jason

The Man in the Lake is a fan-made film about Crystal Lake & the mysterious Jason.

More info in their own words:

Produced by Southlan-Films
Directed by Ron McLellen
written by Kevin L Powers
After the drowning death of a young man at Camp Crystal Lake, the camp is closed down for good. Police searched for days after the accident but the body of the young man was never rcovered from the lake. Now years later a private investor, Spencer Hartwell, buys the property where the camp once stood with plans of reopening it. He hires a group of young folks to join him at the camp and help him get it ready for the upcoming season. When they arrive at the nearby town of Crystal City they are warned to stay away from the old camp. A local store owner tells them how no one goes there because legend has it that the young boy who drowned all those years back actually survived, and now he haunts the forest surrounding Crystal Lake taking vengence on anyone that somes around. None of them take the stories seriously, and they go on their way. Shortly after arriving one of the guys, exploring the forest, happens upon an old shack. Upon checking it out he discovers that the stories are true, and the Man in the Lake… is real.
And here is the film, in five parts:
So, there you go. A good film, as fan films go. A bit quick or rushed, but that isn't so much bad thing. All in all, I think they did a great job. Love the new take on Crazy Ralph!
