I saw Deborah Vorhees at Horrorhound Weekend in Cincinnati – she was in high gear, telling every and anyone about her upcoming directorial effort 13 Fanboy – we were too busy for me to ever make it over to her table to chat to her about it but I can tell you – fan buzz was high on the project and from what we’re seeing in this trailer – for good reason.
From the press release:
An obsessed fanboy stalks his favorite actors from the Friday the 13th films and beyond. As a child, Kelsie Voorhees witnesses the murder of her grandmother, Friday the 13th actress Deborah Voorhees, at the hands of a crazed fanboy. As an adult, she discovers her grandmother isn’t the only victim and the killer is still out there searching for his favorite Friday the 13th cast members and iconic scream queens to slaughter, mirroring his idol Jason Voorhees, as he still can’t seem to separate the characters in the movies from their real-life personas. The cast includes a myriad of real life actors and actresses from the
Friday the 13th films as well as iconic scream queens playing fictionalized versions of themselves including fan favorites Dee Wallace (The Howling, Cujo, Halloween (2007), Critters, ET), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, Jason X), Corey Feldman (Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, The Goonies, Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, Gremlins), Tracie Savage (Friday the13th: Part III), Ron Sloan (Friday the 13th: A New Beginning), Judie Aronson (Friday the 13th: Final Chapter), Jennifer Banko (Friday the 13th VII, Texas Chainsaw Massacre III), Deborah Voorhees (Friday the 13th V), Lar Park Lincoln (Friday the 13th VII, Vincente DiSanti (Jason
Rising, Never Hike Alone).
Have to say – this is looking like a ton of fun. 13 Fanboy hits a bevy of platforms on Oct. 22nd that includes theaters, drive-ins, and VOD so – look for it.
