this corner, he stands 5'10" and weighs in at a crispy 180
pounds. He hails from Elm Street and is wearing the butt ugly Christmas
colored sweater and glove with blades for fingers. He's Freddy Krueger.
And his opponent stands 6'6" and a worm riddled 300 pounds.
He hails originally from Crystal Lake and is dressed in the really
ratty coveralls and hockey mask. He's Jason Vorhees. Let's get ready
vs. Jason is a dream match-up for fans of the 80's teen slasher
films. Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street are arguably
the two most successful horror franchises in history. And in this
movie we finally get to see the two villains together and ultimately
going after each other. This is the source of many a drunken debate,
who would win in a fight with Freddy versus Jason? Both are indestructible,
and this is truly a tale much like the unstoppable force meeting
the immovable object.
how do you get these two together in a storyline that even remotely
makes sense? Let's forget for the moment the normal horror movie
problem of resurrecting a character for one more sequel when he
was killed in the previous edition of the series. The real problem
here is that Freddy exists only in the dreams of the children of
Elm Street while Jason swings his machete at naked teenagers who
are very much awake. Although somewhat convoluted, the movie does
pull it off with a story that actually works well enough. We wont
spoil it though.
film is true not only to the two monsters, but it pays homage to
the style of film and story that made these two famous. No wimpy
PG-13 rating here, this is a good hard R rating with big bosoms
on display and blood by the bucket full. Freddy cracks his one liners,
and Jason keeps coming no matter what you do to him. And the teenagers,
well they keep doing stupid things as we'd expect to get themselves
killed, and most of them are so obnoxious that we're pretty happy
to see them go! We only wish Jason or Freddy could've paid a visit
to the loud obnoxious teens in the row behind us at the theater,
but I must digress.
you've never seen any of the original Freddy or Jason movies, stay
home. This isn't the one to start with. If however, you're a child
of the 80's and at least liked the first couple of movies from either
or both series, then this is a movie you need to see. So does the
winner get to take on Michael Myers from the Halloween series? Or
do we get a rematch in a steel cage? Time and box office receipts
just piss these guys off.
