13 Fanboy: Friday the 13th alum slasher gets official companion magazine


When I was a kid, I read the Jason Goes to Hell official companion magazine released by Fangoria until the thing literally fell to pieces. A decade later, I bought the Freddy vs. Jason companion magazine as well. So it seems very fitting to me that 13 Fanboy, a slasher directed by Friday the 13th: A New Beginning cast member Deborah Voorhees and starring several of her fellow F13 alumni, will be getting its own companion magazine from Fantasm Media.

Now available for pre-order at FantasmMedia.com and expected to ship out in November, the 13 Fanboy magazine is said to be

loaded with EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes photos and interviews from the cast and crew! The new film by director Deborah Voorhees follows the real-life cast of Friday the 13th and other HORROR ICONS as they are relentlessly stalked and gruesomely killed by a maniac who is obsessed with them and their films. This suspenseful shocker is loaded with old school slasher film kills, gore and an intelligent and relevant story that delves into the psychology of stalking.

Exclusive interviews include: Director Deborah Voorhees, Dee Wallace, Kane Hodder, Lar Park Lincoln, C.J. Graham, Tracie Savage, Ron Sloan, Vincente DiSanti, Hayley Greenbauer and MORE!

3 Random Pre-Orders will receive an AUTOGRAPHED copy of the magazine!

Written by Voorhees and producer Joel Paul Reisig, 13 Fanboy tells the following story:

As a child, Kelsie witnesses the murder of her grandmother, a Friday the 13th actress, at the hands of a crazy fanboy. As an adult, she discovers her grandmother isn’t the only victim and finds herself battling to save the life of her grandmother’s best friend, also an actress from Friday the 13th, only to find she is now being targeted by the killer. But who is the killer? So many suspects, including the man lying beside her.

The cast includes Kane Hodder, C.J. Graham, Judie Aronson, Lar Park Lincoln, Tracie Savage, Jennifer Banko, Ron Sloan, Carol Locatell, Corey Feldman, Tiffany Helm, Andrew Leighty, Vincente DiSanti, Hayley Reece Greenbauer, and Dee Wallace.

BMG-Global’s new genre division will be giving 13 Fanboy a theatrical and On Demand release on October 22nd.
