"Freddy vs. Jason" has been a wet dream of all '80s horror fans since, well, the '80s. The potential meeting and beating of the two iconic movie monsters (The former of "Nightmare on Elm Street" fame and the latter of "Friday the 13th") had been eagerly awaited for a long time. Needless to say, we Bitter Balconites were on the bandwagon, pre-Bitter Balcony of course. So how did it turn out? Let’s explore:

Give the writers credit for finding such an inventive way of bringing Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger together. This reviewer admits that being hired for such a task would have been a great challenge.

"Freddy vs. Jason" begins with Freddy convincing Jason that it’s time to come back to life and wreak havoc on the residents of Elm Street. Why? Because people have forgotten Freddy and he figures a little Jason havoc would slap them in the face with the cold fish of reality.

Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) and Ken Kirzinger (Jason) play their characters brilliantly. Englund's performance mixes the son-of-a-bitch Freddy from the first two films with the comedic Freddy from later films.

The pacing is good, but the goal is the last twenty minutes of the film when Freddy and Jason, two characters who obviously can’t die, start handing each other their respective asses. This is the most satisfying aspect of the film, which is what makes it great. The filmmakers knew this is what audiences wanted to see and served it up in spades.

Suspend your disbelief, grab a pair of clean underwear (because of laughs not horror), and watch two real titans clash!

P.S. That "Place your bets," line in the trailer is REALLY lame!
