Freddy vs. Jason

Freddy vs. Jason is a 2003 American slasher action film directed by Ronny Yu and written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. The film, a crossover between A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th series, retroactively establishes them in a shared universe and pits iconic horror film antagonists Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees against each other. It is the last film in each series before their respective reboots, being the eighth in the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise and the eleventh in the Friday the 13th franchise.


Freddy Krueger, now powerless in Hell because the residents of Springwood have forgotten about him, uses what's left of his powers to bring Jason Voorhees back to life. Freddy then disguises himself as Jason's mother to manipulate him into killing Springwood teenagers to create fear and allow him to regain his strength.
