Now this is an Indiegogo campaign every horror fan should back. You know the name Deborah Voorhees. You know the films she’s done. Now, she has a new project and she’s bringing back some very familiar faces in 13 Fanboy.
From the press release:
Friday the 13th original stars reunite in 13 Fanboy!
Horror stars from the 80s come together in a brand new franchise.
Friday the 13th has a passionate fan base that has been waiting for almost a decade for another installment. With the lawsuit between Victor Miller and Sean Cunningham still not resolved a new film isn’t likely for several more years, but Voorhees Films has a solution for your much-needed fix, 13 Fanboy.
“Horror fans are the best,” says Deborah Voorhees, star of Friday part 5 and writer/director of 13 Fanboy, “but every once in a while, you get someone who feels scary. I’ve received texts saying, “He’s watching you right now,” or “wouldn’t it be cool if you were killed like you died in the film?””
These experiences sparked the idea a year ago, when Voorhees met with veteran producer Joel Paul Reisig. The idea frightened her because there is that tiny unspoken fear inside her that said something like this could actually happen.
“After several sleepless nights, I realized that if it scared me this much, it would scare others too. I had been looking for a film for horror fans for a while. It just feels like it is the time for this film.”
Together Voorhees and Reisig wrote the script, then gathered up some of the most popular actors from the original Friday the 13th movies including CJ Graham, Thom Mathews, Tracie Savage, Ron Sloan, Judie Aronson, and of course Deborah Voorhees.
13 Fanboy is not a Paramount film. This is a totally separate series, with no association to the original Friday movies. “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.”
The clock is ticking horror fans! Please help make Deborah Voorhees 13 Fanboy a reality.
