Film review: Freddy VS. Jason

Splatter horror, USA 2003You could expect such a mix of two film series (Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street) to be of quite poor quality, so I was truly surprised. It’s great. Special effects are acceptable (I’ve never cared too much about special effects what so ever), and acting is, especially by Peter Englund who plays Freddy Krueger, excellent. I’m glad it doesn’t have many splatter scenes – I hate horror movies that totally revolve around the scenes when someone chops another guy’s head off. I especially liked the scene where one of the teen girls falls asleep at the police station and has a dream where little girls tells her about Freddy and sings her the song (one, two, Freddy’s coming for you…).
