Similar to Wes Craven ‘s Freddy’s New Nightmare , the seventh installment in the Nightmare On Elm Street series, which, for a change, not only takes place in the dreams of teenagers, but also on the set of a new Nightmare movie is assassinated, it also becomes full pot meta in “ 13 Fanboy ” : The slasher is not just a mere “ Friday the 13th ” dump, of which there really are already more than enough. Instead, in the film directed by Deborah Voorhees (yes, you read that last name correctly!), some original Friday the 13th stars deal with a lunatic stalker in «real» life!
Well-known names such as Jason actor Kane Hodder or child actor superstar Corey Feldman (“The Goonies”, “Lost Boys”, “Stand By Me”) are also part of the party. Also present is Scream Queen Dee Wallace , who has never acted in a «Friday the 13th» part, but has played in cult classics such as Wes Craven ‘s «Blood Eye Hill » or the dog horror » Cujo “ screamed his heart out.
In Germany, «13 Fanboy» will be released on June 10, 2022 as a limited media book with the film on Blu-ray and DVD:

The Plot of 13 Fanboy: As a child, she watched her grandmother, one of the actresses from Friday the 13th, being gruesomely murdered. Meanwhile, Kelsie ( Hayley Greenbauer ) seems to have finally overcome the traumatic experience.
But then she finds out that her grandmother was by no means the killer’s only victim — but that the crazy stalker has apparently been assassinating his way through half the cast of the cult slasher classic for many years. If Kelsie’s calculations on his killing pattern are correct, then Scream Queen Dee Wallace (playing himself) should be the next victim…
The director also has a personal connection to the series
Not only does Deborah Voorhees have the same last name as hockey mask killer Jason, she also acted in » Friday the 13th Part V — A New Beginning » herself. So she is actually fully immersed herself in the world of aged horror stars who are now being massacred one by one by a mad stalker. Or to put it another way: «13 Fanboy» is full of insider gags and meta-comments that should be a lot of fun, especially for fans of the series.

After all, there is no other supply for them. Because even if the previous «Friday the 13th» films were gradually removed from the index, which is why you can finally buy them in stores in an unabridged 18+ version, it is also the case due to the difficult legal situation that in contrast to the «Texas Chainsaw» competition there will probably not be another film with Jason Vorhees as a killer any time soon.
