To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story is the harrowing story of a stuntman overcoming a dehumanizing childhood filled with torment and bullying in Sparks, Nevada. After surviving a near-death burn accident, he worked his way up through Hollywood, leading to his ultimate rise as Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th series and making countless moviegoers forever terrified of hockey masks and summer camp.

To many horror fans, Kane Hodder is THE Jason Vorhees. He’s been in a number of horror classics and the man is a legend himself. He’s also an intimidating dude. I’ve stood across from him at the local convention and felt like the guy was just a ball of intensity, but that isn’t all the way true as this documentary on the man, To Hell and Back, proves. Kane is a really nice man with a pretty darn interesting story and this is the film to tell that whole story, as well give us info on how he got where he is and stuff that has happened to the man along the way. If the documentary isn’t enough for you, this disc even comes with an extra 90 minutes of more stuff as an extra. This is totally a great film for any fans of Kane Hodder out there.

You pretty much hear from a who’s who in horror for this one. I could sit here and name everyone but that would take up the entire review. Just know you get Robert Englund, Danielle Harris, and lots more people here talking about Kane. You’ll learn a lot about the man you probably didn’t know before and you get lots of info on the infamous accident that lead to him being burned. I’m a fan and after seeing this I’m an even bigger man of Kane Hodder. All you could want to find out and more is here in To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story. It looks good on Blu-ray, has some cool extras, and is a very interesting story as well.
