Storyline

It's been nearly ten years since Freddy Krueger terrorized people in the dreams, and the towns folk want to keep him erased from their memory. Freddy still has one more plan on getting back to Elm Street. He resurrects Jason Voorhees and sends him off to kill. The more bodies which fall to the ground, the stronger in which Freddy becomes. This is until, Freddy realizes that Jason isn't going to step aside easily, and must be taken down himself. Written by Film_Fan

Trivia

Seventeen scripts were submitted, which eventually turned into one script. The producers decided for some time to go ahead with this script, but changed their minds, as they could not agree with the ideas proposed. Eventually, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift came in and created their own script, which the producers felt were much closer to the Freddy and Jason backstories. Most of the earlier scripts dealt with cults that were attempting to resurrect Freddy and Jason to come back and fight. See more »

Goofs

(at around 42 mins) When Jason is shown chasing Shack through the field, Jason is on fire but his machete is clearly not. Every shot after that, his machete is flaming. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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. When I was alive, I might have been a little naughty, but after they killed me, I became something much, much worse. The stuff nightmares are made of. The children still feared me, ...

Crazy Credits

As the end credits start, the camera pans over a cracked surface with the cast and crew's names on it. As each name comes into view, blood drips and splatters over it. This little sequence ends with the screen being slashed open and the Freddy vs. Jason logo flying out. See more »

Pretty good, but I was expecting it to be much better.
28 August 2009 | by BeerFairy100See all my reviews

When I saw the preview for it on space a few days ago I figured since two of the most popular Horror movie characters are in it, that it would be just as good as The Exorcist (which I saw just a while ago). Well I'll admit it was good, but it was nothing like I hoped.

Most horror movies during this decade are pretty awful and not worth watching but this movie but this is actually a little bit better. I recommend this film for anyone who wants to kill a couple of hours. I don't think it's worth an Oscar or anything but it's good enough to buy or rent at a video store.

So overall, I liked the plot, the script, and the idea of Freddy and Jason being the two characters fighting each other. I'll admit it was pretty stupid but according to the average rating it was good compared to the garbage we have now.

Now all we need is Fred from Youtube vs. Jason Voorhees... Haha! I'd consider that a treat for his haters on Youtube.
