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.


I remember when this movie was announced (and released) almost twenty years ago, I was all giddy and thought this would be the best movie to be released that year… Twenty years later I still see the entertainment level of the story but it feels so meh… it all feels a bit forced and most of the movie is running and screaming and a bit of banter from Freddy…

Don’t get me wrong, my rating for this movie is genuine… it’s entertaining and seeing two of eighties evilest slasher monsters get together for a brawl and a kill… what’s wrong with that? The amount of killing happening in this movie is epic… but I think it’s a good thing they stuck to only this one movie (although a comic was released afterwards: Freddy vs Jason vs Ash – and I think these kind of stories work better as a comic and not as a movie franchise)

The best scenes in this movie: Jason in the cornfield, burning, chasing his victims… Jason fights Freddy in the burning house and the construction site… Jason’s first kill in the real world (that bed 🤣)

Worst scene: the stoner possessed by Freddy… 🤷‍♂️

If you love to see a slasher with some great kills and you have nothing else on your calender… (so on a boring Sunday) this is thé movie to watch!
