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

According to Robert Englund, his Freddy make-up was so thick that he couldn't tell how hot it was from the fires during filming. When he got in to have his make-up removed, it had bonded itself to his face. See more »

Goofs

(at around 27 mins) When Lori explains she haven't had much sleep lately, Kia says "Lori, you had to sleep at the police station.". If you look at Kia's purse straps you can see some of Kia's dress sticking up between the straps. When it cuts, the piece of her dress no longer sticks up between the straps. 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

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 »

Alright
2 April 2007 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The movie itself is alright. It's exactly what it says! Freddy vs. Jason. And while we might never see my favorite movie be made (Ash vs. Freddy vs. Jason), there might be another movie around the corner, maybe involving M. Myers.

But back to this film. It delivers what it promises, the battle of the titans. Wrapped up in a nice story. And while all is good, I can't stop wondering, if there wasn't any way to make more of that particular premise ... The movie is fine, but it's just not excellent.

And one thing is for sure: Kelly Rowland plays one of the most annoying characters that I have seen in a long time. Now either she is a good actress and played that really well ... or she is a bad actress and that showed on screen (I personally think it's the latter).

A nice teen horror movie, with two of the most recognised horror characters out there!
