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

Can there honestly be a better fan film out there?
13 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

When I sit down to watch a fan film, I usually don't expect class A special effects, top notch acting or sometimes even a well written story. Freddy VS ghostbusters however packs all 3 excellently. I was shocked to see such good proton beams in a fan film, the freddy makeup is great and all the actors pull of the job while nicely fitting into their roles.

In my opinion the only thing that a fan film needs in order to be accepted is for it to be fun. Fun is an understatement here because of the likes of the effects, the talents of actor Jason Weiss, well executed scenes from the aspiring director hank braxtan and an overall excellent job.

If you like the movie then you may also want to see the two alternate endings, or the commentary, both which can be located at the official site for Freddy VS Ghostbusters (as well as their other brilliant shorts).
