Freddy vs. Jason

Freddy vs. Jason ★★½ 2003 (R)

Highly anticipated cinematic showdown between Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees begins with the clever premise that Freddy is dying of neglect. The children of Elm Street have forgotten about him, so Freddy is ceasing to exist. Freddy gets it into his head to inject a little horror into the real world and summons Jason from whatever hell he's been languishing in and sets him loose. The only problem is that Jason is taking center stage, which displeases Freddy. Ronny Yu's frenetic direction sets a suitable pace, but after the setup, it all settles into standard “slasher film” mode until the climactic battle. Forgettable cast of victims adequately plays off of Robert Englund's scene-devouring Freddy. 97m/C VHS, DVD, UMD . US Robert Englund, Ken Kirzinger, Monica Keena, Jason Ritter, Kelly Rowland, Katharine Isabelle, Brendan Fletcher, Tom Butler, Lochlyn Munro, James Callahan; D: Ronny Yu; W: Damian Shannon, Mark Swift; C: Fred Murphy; M: Graeme Revell.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
