Storyline

The nightmare is always the same: dirty brown hat, striped sweater, and a glove of razors. Neil is having a lot of trouble sleeping lately, and the terrors are getting worse. Fortunately, help soon arrives in the the form of an old friend, Ed Spengler--nephew of Ghostbuster great Egon Spengler. With the help of their friend Eugene, Ed and Neil establish a Denver division of the Ghostbusters. Before long business is booming, but eventually they know they will have to face off against Freddy Krueger himself. Written by Anonymous

Very good!
27 March 2007 | by (Naples, Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I finally managed to see this short film. It was just as I expected it to be: Cheesy, rather poorly acted, yet still funny as hell in an intentional way. The visual effects for the ghosts and makeup effects for Freddy were pretty good considering what an obviously low budget 'Freddy Vs. Ghostbusters' was made with, and I liked a lot of the pop cultural references and parodies they managed to sneak in (i.e. a pretty obvious reference to 'The Matrix' in the climax). One thing I would have done, though, is have Freddy kill one or two more people before the inevitable showdown. I mean, Freddy only has two kills that we see (Though they're both pretty funny, especially the first one), and Neil mentions that Freddy killed a few teens in the area after being released, so maybe they could have shown one or two of those. Still, 'Freddy Vs. Ghostbusters' was easily one of the best fan films I've ever seen for any film genre, and I'll definitely recommend it to my friends!
