Twenty years ago this week, Joss Whedon brought Buffy the Vampire Slayer to television as a weekly series. She saved the world, a lot. And over the course of seven seasons, Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Buffy became one of our favorite heroines of all time. In 2001, Whedon offered Buffy fans a new vision, when he and artist Karl Moline collaborated on Fray, an eight-issue comic book miniseries about the slayer of the far future. In this time period, the chosen one is Melaka Fray, and now you can see her in action in a new fan film!
Via Loot Crate Studios, Lurk: A Fray Fan Film made its debut earlier this month. This project was funded on Kickstarter all the way back in 2013, and it’s finally here for your viewing enjoyment. And you may recognize our very own Twitch host, Stefanie Woodburn in the title role as Melaka Fray. We’ve always thought that Stefanie kicked ass, and now you get to see her actually kick some vampire ass! Although in this time, the vampires are called Lurks, and they operate in the open. However, only Melaka has the courage to openly face the monsters, even if she can’t quite bring herself to finish off Harth Fray (Noah Hunt), her twin brother and her greatest nemesis among the Lurks.
Hutchi Hancock co-stars as Melaka’s human sister, Erin Fray, while Kel Witmore portrays Corey Page, a lawman who may have a few secrets of his own. Lurk: A Fray Fan Film was directed by Vincent Valentin, and the short features two original songs by Anabot; which you can find on their bandcamp page.
