Review by Steve Rhodes
1½ stars out of 4

FREDDY VS. JASON, a movie in search of a plot, is little more than a random collection of clich‚d horror moments. A gorefest that slices and dices almost non-stop, the movie pits classic horror movie characters Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) and Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger) in a battle to the death -- this is if you really believe that any studio would permanently kill off one of their cash cows.

Before the main event, the movie features an hour of all the standard fright tricks: lightning flashes, lights flicker, people appear suddenly, shadowy figures are glimpsed, silicone breasts are flashed and teenagers are chopped up with great glee by Freddy and Jason. After this perfunctory part comes the big, half-hour-long match between the guy in the hockey mask and Edward Scissorhands's evil uncle. Who wins? Who cares?!

"Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!" screams Lori (Monica Keena), the best looking of the teens. You'll be screaming that too, not because of fright but because of mind-numbing boredom. If you want to see a good horror film, save your money for CABIN FEVER, which opens next month. It's smartly written, unlike the utterly stupid FREDDY VS. JASON.

FREDDY VS. JASON runs 1:32, which will seem like an eternity. The film is rated R for "pervasive strong horror violence/gore, gruesome images, sexuality, drug use and language" and would be acceptable for older teenagers.

My son Jeffrey, age 14, gave it ***. He liked the special effects in the dream sequences and the fighting. He also thought the jokes worked well.
