Casey Jones, also known as Casey Jones: The Movie, is a fan film made by Polaris Banks that premiered August 14, 2011 in Austin, Texas at the Marchesa Hall & Theater, and on the internet shortly after on September 18, 2011. The full film can be viewed on the Official Website.
Casey Jones is the story of a quirky young man with an irresistible propensity for violence. A lifelong outcast, Casey (Hilarion Banks) learned at a young age to channel his brutal urges into sports, but after being kicked off the local hockey team for excessive force during practice, Casey moves back in with his worrisome mother to seek solace at his boyhood home. His retreat is soon interrupted though when a vicious gang of street punks, the Purple Dragons, savagely beat himfor attempting to remove their graffiti, nearly killing him. After narrowly escaping the encounter with his life, Casey vows to single-handedly rid his neighborhood of crime and trains rigorously. Armed with a golf bag loaded with sports equipment and sporting a fearful hockey mask, Casey stalks the alleyways by night, mercilessly trouncing any delinquents unlucky enough to cross his path. The misguided crusader soon goes off the deep end, and an unlikely ally from the sewers is forced to intervene before the vigilante annihilates every criminal in the city.

Originally planned as a 5-minute teaser, the 35-minute film was made for a reported $20,000 and filmed in parts of Downtown Austin, Texas and Dallas, Texas, as stand-ins for New York City, New York. Banks shot the film over a two-year period while living in Austin, casting his brother as the title character.
MTV Geek said it "is probably the most spot-on film treatment of the hockey-masked avenger you will ever find. With superior acting, cinematography, and direction, it is more than just another fan film -- but rather something more akin to TMNT as done by Martin Scorsese."
