Freddy Vs Jason

Potential victims have been drugged to prevent them from dreaming, rendering impotent the master of nightmares They've eliminated their fear of Freddy, absolute torture for an egomaniac psychopath who's a legend in his own mind.

Like an inmate with a life sentence, Freddy's been reduced to plotting a fantastic revenge that will never happen. Until, that is, Freddy resurrects Jason Voorhees, the equally iconic madman and the perfect means for Freddy to once again instill fear on Elm Street, creating a window of opportunity for him to emerge from his purgatory.

Recognizing how easily manipulated Jason is, Freddy tricks Voorhees into journeying to Springwood to start a new reign of terror.

What the critics are saying:

"Thank heavens...for director Ronny Yu, who piles on as much wisecracking humour as arterial spray, occasionally combining the two..."
- Jamie Russell, BBCi

"For anyone who is not a big fan of the Nightmare on Elm Street and/or Friday the 13th films, there is no possible reason why this movie would merit consideration for viewing."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews

"...it's a sad day for Nightmare on Elm Street fans when a member of Destiny's Child steals the show..."
- Ed Gonzalez, Slant


Fans of either (or both) of these horror film stalwarts will be delighted with this gory battle, but the rest of us would be better off with a nice comedy.

Excellent dude! I remember as a kid we used to go "Wouldn't it be cool if Freddy fought Jason" and "Jason would kick Freddy's scrawny ass!". Now we finally get to see it! Awesome! Freddy Vs Jason

Nightmare When I was a kid I saw the TRAILER for Friday 13th at a Drive In, and had nightmares based on it for about three years. When I finally worked up the courage to watch horror movies it was only to piss off my varsity lecturers by using them as refernces in visual anthropology essays. Pet Semitary
