Freddy Krueger is in hell--literally. Nearly ten years since Krueger has invaded peoplesí dreams to exact his deadly form of revenge and murder. His memory has been systematically erased by a town determined to put an end to Freddy at any cost. Perspective victims have been drugged with an experimental dream debilitating chemical to prevent them from having nightmares, rendering impotent the master of nightmares. Freddy resurrects Jason Voorhees, the equally iconic madman and the perfect means for Freddy to once again instill fear on Elm Street, creating a window of opportunity for him to emerge from his purgatory. 

Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees return in one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. As far as horror villains have come and gone over the past three decades, no one has scared audiences silly as Freddy and Jason. New Line Cinema, responsible for Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Austin Powers, and Rush Hour grabs another license in Freddy Vs Jason, which is destined to be a box office smash.

Freddy Vs Jason is filled with classic horror movie elements such as slashing beautiful young couples early in the movie, villains that just don't die, low-budget, bad-acting teenagers, gratuitous nudity, and eccentric bloody deaths. But, the most impressive thing is that the production team chose not to rely heavily on CG. Most hardcore horror fans will agree that low-budget slashers with powerful characters and storylines is what made the genre popular in the late 80's and 90's. Following the box-office flop Jason X, New Line has successfully brought back the late 80's slasher with Freddy Vs. Jason. 

Unlike previous attempts to bring back the classic slasher, Freddy vs Jason focuses the film around the teen-killing machines rather than the teenagers themselves. Robert Englund and Ken Kirzinger give convincing performances as Freddy and Jason. The screenwriters Damian Shannon & Mark Swift do a wonderful job constructing creative deaths and keeping the script concise.

With incredibly strong screenwriting, surprising performances by Kelly Rowland (Kia), Ken Kirzinger (Jason Voorhees), and Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), and the perfect combination of computer graphics and classic horror movie elements makes this one of the top horror movies of the year.
