I had the great pleasure of seeing "To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story" at its grand premier in Lexington, Ky.
Anyone who is a fan of Horror films knows his name and his accomplishments; the film, gives fans rare insight into who the man is. There are many great moments in the film, including talking points by some of the biggest names in horror and it is clear the amount of respect he has in the field. He is the best in the business at what he does.
The musical score is very well done and it definitely adds depth to pivotal scenes in the movie. The filmmaker Derek Dennis Herbert does a marvelous job of allowing Kane to tell his own story, which is exactly the purpose of the movie.
There are moments in the film which will absolutely move you, and I won't give those away, but I fully expect you will be left with a newfound respect for Kane Hodder as a human being, and he is an exceptional one.
Aside from the respect I have for Kane Hodder, the most important thing I must mention about this film, is the way it treats the topic of bullying. It is going to be an incredibly powerful moment when you discover that one of your heroes, and perhaps one of the most intimidating people of all-time was a victim of bullying, and was able to overcome it through strength and courage.
Kane Hodder could become one of the most powerful voices against bullying in the world, and as someone who has worked with young people in the past, I truly hope to see him continue the cause.
