Known for his slasher roles as Jason Voorhees and Victor Crowley in the Friday the 13th and Hatchet franchises, respectively, horror icon Kane Hodder is also no stranger to paranormal investigations. For years, Kane has been involved in leading paranormal investigations at some of the world's most haunted locations, and Hodder recently premiered the trailer for his new project, Balsam: A Paranormal Investigation, at Mad Monster Party in Arizona.
In the documentary, Kane Hodder leads a team of paranormal investigators as they investigate The Grand Old Lady Hotel in Balsam, North Carolina. The Grand Old Lady Hotel is a 112-year-old, 40,000 square foot hotel with a disturbing past. Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, the hotel is referred to by locals as the South's Stanley Hotel.
Director Tony H. Cadwell stated, "We wanted to put together a project for horror fans that was both an authentic paranormal investigation and cinematically entertaining at a location that was not well known with an amazing horror icon, Kane Hodder."
Balsam: A Paranormal Investigation was executive produced by White Glove Productions' Tom Sulkowski (Mechanic: Resurrection) and H13 Media's Tony H. Cadwell with Kane Hodder serving as a producer on the project. The documentary stars Hodder alongside Amanda Hannah, Mark A. Richardson, and Maeve Ybanez.
The film is set for release in 2021.
