Rumored and anticipated for years, the two biggest icons of the slasher genre finally meet in Freddy Vs. Jason, the eighth entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street saga and the 11th film in the Friday the 13th series, though with Jason X taking place in the future, it should be noted that the events of this film take place after the ninth film Jason Goes to Hell.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Ronny Yu loses energy when it shifts to the dumb teen protagonists, and the script faithfully wallows in cliches so ridiculous they border on Scary Movie territory."
‑ Brian Thomas, Chicago Reader
"Will satisfy the hordes who've awaited this heavyweight matchup for a decade."
‑ Bob Campbell, Newark Star-Ledger
"You'll shake your head in disbelief at the nonsensical plot machinations and idiotic character motivations required to bring the two terror titans together."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"it's safe to say the best work of these bad boys is decidedly behind them."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"A fine post-scream Freddy romp"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"It's pretty obvious where director Ronnie Yu's sympathies lie. Still, he can't find a satisfactory resolution to that old teaser about an implacable force vs the immovable object: how to kill off your cash cow and milk her too."
‑ , Time Out
"Though a stickler might ask what's at stake in a fight to the death between two guys who are already dead, the hard-core fans aren't likely to be disappointed."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"Scary, gory, nightmare-inducing slasher."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"[A] true return to form for the slasher genre ..."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"With Jason and Freddy at war over the souls of children, this great send-up of the genre is extremely fun and is faithful to the characterizations long-established for these villains."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"It's bloody, it's loud, it's gratuitous, and it's ridiculous. Sweet."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"New Line's smartest move was letting Ronny Yu direct."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"A fun-filled, action packed, horror spectacular..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's a cleverly wrapped gift to me and every horror fan like me, and I feel nothing but affection for it."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Freddy vs. Jason is a pretty awful Nightmare film, but only a mediocre F13 film."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
