Freddy vs. Jason (2003)

Freddy vs. Jason (2003)

Genre: Thriller/Crime/Fantasy/Mystery/Action/Horror

Starring: Robert Englund, Ken Kirzinger, Monica Keena, Jason Ritter, Kelly Rowland

As soon as the movie kicks off, you feel as if your watching the trailer of a horror flick that badly went wrong which slowly turns into the impression that your about to watch a horror spoof and eventually you realise that the movie is very serious on scaring you. Freddy (Eglund) was a child serial killer, who was burnt alive by protesting parents. Now in hell, he gains his power from the fear that people have for him. Over time, the people of Springwood have eradicated this fear by using drugs and medicines. Four years later, Freddy resurrects Jason (Kirzinger) to kill some more people and make them fear him once more. However, Jason goes a little overboard with his killing and Freddy decides to stop him and finish him off for good. In the midst of all this brutal killing are caught teens Lori (Keena), Will (Ritter) and Kia (Rowland) who have watched their friends die and go all out to end this massacre. The movie has some very gory and bloody scenes. Although it has the ‘horror’ tag attached to it, the movie hardly makes you flinch and that comes from someone who cannot stand horrors at all. The first half makes you wonder why you’ve even bothering with it, but give it some time and the movie manages to gain your interest. Definitely not meant for someone looking for thrills and shivers.

Thumbs up: Good action, although gory
Thumbs down: Bad attempt at being scary

Rating: 6.0/10
