While we may never see a true Friday the 13th film again for a very long time due to legal battles and other volatility. There is still the universe in which a fan can take up the cause of Jason, which is exactly what is happening in the new indie film ‘ 13 Fanboy ‘.
The film revolves around a Friday the 13th super fan who goes over the edge and decides to start taking out the stars of the franchise, the film is set to release on various VOD platforms and select theaters on October 22, 2021.
A group of actors takes part in this film, including Dee Wallace, Kane Hodder, Adrienne King, Corey Feldman, Hayley Greenbauer, Lar Park Lincoln, Jennifer Banko, Andrew Leighty, Judie Aronson, Ron Sloan, C.J. Graham, Tracie Savage, Vincente DiSanti, and Carol Locatell.
In a recent press release the creators of the film had this to say.
“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.”
Below is the trailer for the film.
I am personally excited for this film and will be checking vigorously to see if it will be available for screening in my town. ** Fingers Crossed **
