Did You Know?


According to Kane Hodder, C.J. Graham, who played Jason in Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986), had a chance to reprise his role for this film after his agent suggested it to him. He declined the chance as he was good friends with Hodder and felt the film's producers were treating him unfairly by recasting the character. See more »

Freddy Krueger: [narrating] My children... from the very beginning, it was the children who gave me my power. The Springwood Slasher, that's what they called me. My reign of terror was legendary. Dozens of children would fall by my blades. Then the parents of Springwood came for me, taking justice into their own hands.

Instead of opening credits, we see a screen full of flesh that is quickly slashed into pieces, which fly back and form the words "New Line Cinema Presents". These words then dissolve into blood, which splatters on a wall as the Freddy vs. Jason logo emerges. See more »

Surprisingly good
13 January 2004 | by (New Hartford, NY) – See all my reviews

I thought that Jason and Freddy were fossils of the 80s. I was wrong. This movie works well. I liked it better than the overrated Scream movies. Freddy and Jason make a great team. This is an exciting movie with two cult figures meeting on screen for the first time. The fight is satisfying. 7/10
