Along with starring as Tina in the 1985 film Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, Deborah Voorhees has been a director, writer, journalist, editor, teacher, and Playboy Bunny—a life full of material for storytelling. She founded Voorhees Films in 2010 and has crafted commercials, short films, and music videos. She completed her first feature, Billy Shakespeare, in 2014, and her short film Hip Hop Hamlet was an Official Selection of Kenneth Branagh’s Shakespeare Film Festival in 2015.
Using all practical effects to honor the slasher film from the 1980s, her second feature and passion project, 13 Fanboy, was produced by Joel Paul Reisig with the help of a successful crowdfunding campaign.See our upcoming films
