Actor Joe Davison, seen in the second season of STRANGER THINGS, is at the helm of a horror film that rolls this summer, backed by the creator of FINAL DESTINATION. Read on for the scoop and a first look at the poster.

HANK, written and directed by Davison, is executive-produced by original DESTINATION scripter Jeffrey Reddick, with creature effects by Roy Knyrim of SOTA FX. Casting is currently underway and will be announced soon. The synopsis: “A group of college friends makes their way to an allegedly haunted location to do exactly what the legend says not to do: ring the bell at midnight on a full moon. Legend has it, if you ring the bell at midnight on a full moon, Hank will appear and kill everyone. This group of campers is about to discover the truth. Fact is stranger than fiction, or lore rather, in this action-packed horror that takes a slasher film and flips it on its head.”
