While the official series has stalled, Friday The 13th fan films keep on popping up. This one seems very meta.
“Our horror thriller brings your favorite Friday the 13th actors back to the big screen in an entirely new horror series about a fan, who takes his love for the series too far and targets the real-life women from the franchise to kill them like they were killed in the Friday films or to “improve” their deaths. 13 Fanboy melds the slasher-style kills that Friday is famous for and the heart-pounding thrillers such as Hush and Cape Fear. We will be using all practical effects, NO CGI to honor the 80s slashers.”
I’m not generally a big fan of meta-type stuff, but it’s still an interesting premise. And just look at the cast they’ve assembled. As well as Dee Wallace, we also have Adrienne King from the original Friday The 13th, C.J. Graham and Thom Mathews from Jason Lives, Judie Aronson from The Final Chapter, Tracie Savage from Part III, Ron Sloan from A New Beginning, and Corey Feldman from Final Chapter! Wow.
The latest addition is Lar Park Lincoln, who played the Carrie-like Tina Shepherd in The New Blood. Oh, and I almost forgot – the director will be Deborah Voorhees [yes, that’s her name] who was Tina in A New Beginning. Phew.
13 Fanboy has been completely funded through Indiegogo.
