13 Fanboy trailer: Friday the 13th alumni are stalked in October release


We’ve been keeping an eye on director Deborah Voorhees’ film 13 Fanboy ever since it was first announced, and we don’t have much longer to wait to see it: BMG-Global’s new genre division will be giving 13 Fanboy a theatrical and On Demand release on October 22nd. With that day less than a month away, a trailer has arrived online and can be seen in the embed above.

Voorhees is best known for her role in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, and she brought in several of her fellow Friday the 13th alumni to work on 13 Fanboy with her. In addition to Voorhees, the cast includes Friday the 13th stars Kane Hodder, C.J. Graham, Judie Aronson, Lar Park Lincoln, Tracie Savage, Jennifer Banko, Ron Sloan, Carol Locatell, and Corey Feldman. Their co-stars include Andrew Leighty, Vincente DiSanti, Hayley Reece Greenbauer, and genre icon Dee Wallace.

Written by Voorhees and producer Joel Paul Reisig, the film 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.

Friday the 13th is my favorite horror franchise, so I’m really looking forward to 13 Fanboy. The trailer features many familiar faces, and a bit of dialogue even mentions that Voorhees’ Friday the 13th: A New Beginning co-star Tiffany Helm (who played the robot-dancing Violet in that film) is among the slasher’s victims.
