Freddy vs. Jason (previously known as A Nightmare on Friday the 13th) is a 2003 American slasher action film directed by Ronny Yu. The film is a crossover between the Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. It is the eleventh and eighth entries in their respective series, pitting Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees against each other. The film is also the last film in both the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street franchises before they were both rebooted. In the film, Freddy (Robert Englund) has grown incapable of haunting people’s dreams as the citizens of Springwood, Ohio have mostly forgotten about Freddy with the passage of time, as well as the fact that the current generation of teenagers are kept ignorant of his existence. In order to regain his power, Freddy manipulates Jason (Ken Kirzinger), into resurrecting himself and traveling to Springwood to cause panic and fear, leading to rumors that Freddy has returned. However, while Jason succeeds in causing enough fear for Freddy to haunt the town again, Jason angers Freddy by depriving Krueger of his potential victims. This ultimately sends the two undying monsters into a violent conflict. This film marked Robert Englund‘s final appearance to date as Freddy Krueger, having portrayed him in all seven previousNightmare films and the 1980s TV series, as well as the first movie since Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood not to feature Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees, having been replaced by Stuntman Ken Kirzinger who previously served as adouble for Hodder in the film Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan. The film served as Grammy-winning R&Bsinger Kelly Rowland‘s debut as an actress. This IS a Guilty Movie Pleasure… We’re talking about Freddy Vs. Jason! #GMP Follow Josh on Twitter!
