"This is the DC
Crisis of horror. This is the movie they could never afford to make." - Jason Craig

"With remakes of Friday and now Nightmare, we are in many ways the stewards of the classic continuity and it's a responsibility we don't take lightly." - Jeff Katz

This is the follow-up to 'Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'. On one hand, I appreciate that this comes from a place of genuine love for the original films. On the other, it's a bit of a mess. The level of fanservice here is off the charts that even J.J. Abrams would probably go "Whoa, settle down." Unless you've seen every single film from both Freddy and Jason you're probably going to be lost at one point or another.

Warning for the usual stuff; gore, violence, etc.



You won't get a look at it until later in the post due to the pages I had to remove but I really liked the design with Jason wearing a broken mask and having the mouth from his skull exposed. I think it'd be neat to see it carried over for a film someday.

Of course, Jason comes calling...


So as a recap, we have Maggie Burroughs (Freddy’s Dead), Dr. Neil Gordon (Nightmare on Elm Street 3), Steven Freeman (Jason Goes to Hell), Stephanie Kimble (Steven’s baby daughter from that movie all grown up), Alice Johnson (Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and 5), Jacob Johnson (Alice’s son, also grown up), Tina Shepard (Friday the 13th Part VII), and Rennie Wickham (Friday the 13th Part VIII). And last but certainly not least...



Next Freddy unleashes the Army of Darkness from the Necronomicon.




For the epilogue, as Ash drives off onto the sunset, we get a close up of Jason's mask as Pamela tells him he can never die.

And finally...

At this point, shouldn't 'Ash Williams' be all the warning anyone needs?

That does pose an interesting question : how did a two-bit child killer become a dream demon of the power Freddy has? I mean, I guess the same could be asked of'd a disfigured kid become a 7-foot tall killer zombie that keeps coming back?

I know the answer is supposed to be all mysterious to make it scarier....but when you have as many sequels as these two have, one starts wondering.

Also...Krueger daughter, what? o_O

Is this the last series? They took Freddie's powers away as punishment. It'd be silly to leave a little only to be able to use him in the future.

See those worm-like things there that took Freddy's powers away? They were actually established in the movies as the source of his powers. Some kind of dream demons or gods or something that wanted a proxy.

Or so I recall. It's been a while since I watched the series box. Can't check it either, really, since it's actually my brother that owns it.

Well, that story was a special kind of fucked-up now, wasn't it. o.0

Man, the art... 'Wait, why did Freddy turn into Bill Murray?'... After a few moments, I did manage to resolve Robert Eglund out of it, but...sheesh. (Ash looks even more terrible...did Bruce Campbell refuse the right to his likeness, or something?)

You'd think one of these days, people like Agent Russell and his government agents would realize that evil is not a toy. *rolls eyes*

Considering who just got placed in the Orange House, I expect more of these soon. :/

Jason with long, lustrous Fabio hair is the most wonder part of all this.

So Freddy's daughter decides she's evil and develops a preference for clothes that require double-sided tape to stay on because... reasons? And then exeunt, crushed by tank appearing out of nowhere.
