A group of teenagers finds themselves stuck in the middle
of a battle between two forces of evil: silent stalker Jason
Voorhees (Hodder) and gabby dream master Freddy Krueger (Englund),
as the battle wages from Elm Street to a climactic finale
fought at Camp Crystal Lake.
What are critics saying?
"...witless, excessive and ultimately boring gore-a-thon.
...the writers didn't want to waste their time creating interesting
characters that were going to get their heads lopped off pretty
--Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"...just another teen horror movie..."
--Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"...extremely gory... full roster of promiscuous teen
--Matthew Turner, View London
"...Profanity: Extreme / Sex/Nudity: Extreme / Violence:
"...excessive use of bad language ...glamorizing the
use of alcohol and drugs... graphic killings as entertainment
...frequent sex scenes..."
"...The violence is brutal, gory and incessant. ...People
get cut in two, impaled, electrocuted, burned to a crisp,
dismembered or decapitated ...gratuitous nudity, explicit
sex and sick humor... graphic display of necrophilia...."
--Bob Smithhouser, PluggedIn, Focus on the Family
"...In this fight, viewer loses...treats death the way
porn movies treat sex, as a subject to be exploited..."
--Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"...doggedly sub-stupid -- an audacious achievement
in arbitrary plot developments and incoherence. ...teen characters
liken their situation to the real-life tragedy at Columbine
and to dream of incest. The sick just keeps getting sicker."
--Ed Blank, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
"...since neither Freddy nor Jason can ever really be
killed, that means the whole last half of the movie is utterly
pointless. Or, at least, more pointless than the first half
of the movie. But maybe no less pointless than any other "Elm
Street' or "Friday' entry...."
