Reviews:

“Better than expected. Just a fun premise that was executed fairly decently.” *** Capt Chop

” …unlike the Scream films at their best, 13 Fanboy is terrible on its own merits as a serial-killer thriller, with atrocious editing that blunts every potentially interesting kill and a mix of murder motivations that don’t work at all in combination. Plus you’ve got Corey Feldman as a sleazy producer allowed to over-act to a risible degree.” City Weekly

” …13 Fanboy was a decent slasher that definitely earned extra goodwill from me due to the fact that it’s populated with Friday the 13th stars […] It’s a celebration of the Friday the 13th franchise while also being its own separate thing, and it was sort of heartwarming to see all these F13 actors again, together in one place. Heartwarming right up until the “fanboy” made a bloody mess of them.” JoBlo

“A tinge of reality can’t help but seep its way into the narrative, even amongst the campier over-the-top elements […] Wallace is given the majority of the dramatic heft and tackles it with an emotional but level-headed approach […] It may be only just slightly over an hour and a half, yet even at this length, I feel it should be been trimmed down a bit…” Josh at the Movies
