Corey Feldman Joins Cast of ‘Friday the 13th’ Fan Film ’13 Fanboy,’ Directed by ‘New Beginning’ Star
Back in 1985, Deborah Voorhees (yes, that’s her real name) played the role of Tina in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, and Voorhees is now taking it upon herself to return to the world of Friday the 13th (sort of) with the film 13 Fanboy, which she plans on directing. Essentially, it’s a meta slasher, centered on stars of the Friday franchise being killed off by a fan.
In 13 Fanboy, which has now been completely funded through Indiegogo…
“A deranged Friday the 13th fan stalks the women from the famous franchise.”
Now here’s where things get pretty cool. Voorhees has indeed brought actual stars from the Friday films on board the project, to date including C.J. Graham from Jason Lives; Thom Mathews from Jason Lives; Judie Aronson from The Final Chapter; Tracie Savage from Friday the 13th Part III; and Ron Sloan from A New Beginning.
And we’ve learned this week that Corey Feldman, who of course played the original Tommy Jarvis in The Final Chapter, will be making a special appearance in 13 Fanboy!
Additionally, horror legend Dee Wallace will also star.
The team details, “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.”
