Freddy vs Jason
Threat advisory: Under evaluation
Winner kills all.
Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) is in Hell - literally. It's been nearly ten years since Krueger, one of the scariest horror movie characters of all time (from Nightmare on Elm Street series), invaded peoples' dreams to exact his deadly form of revenge and murder. But now, his memory has been systematically erased by a town determined to put an end to Freddy once and for all. Potential victims have been drugged to prevent them from dreaming, rendering impotent the master of nightmares. They've eliminated their fear of Freddy, absolute torture for an egomaniac psychopath who's a legend in his own mind. Like an inmate with a life sentence, Freddy's been reduced to plotting a fantastic revenge that will never happen.
Until, that is, Freddy resurrects Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger), the equally iconic madman from the Friday the 13th film series. Jason is the perfect means for Freddy to once again instil fear on Elm Street, creating a window of opportunity for him to emerge from his purgatory. Recognising how easily manipulated Jason is, Freddy tricks Voorhees into journeying to Springwood to start a new reign of terror.
But as the bodies begin to pile up on Elm Street and Freddy's fearsome reputation assumes new life, he discovers that Jason isn't willing to cease his murderous ways and step aside so easily. Now, with a terrified town in the middle, the two titans of terror enter into a horrifying showdown of epic proportions, alternating between the world of dreams and the harsh reality of the living world.
Who will win and who will lose in this battle to end all battles?
