Because the kids of Springwood no longer remember him, Freddy Krueger
(Robert Englund) - unable to appear in their dreams - is condemned to
hell. There however he stumbles over Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger),
& figures if he sends Jason back to earth to go on a killing spree
through Springwood, Freddy's name will inevitably pop up somewhere,
giving him back his powers over the living. Of course the plan works,
& soon Freddy can kill all the children he wants through their
dreams ... wouldn't there be Jason, who more often than not beats him to
the kids to kill them himself. & then there is of course the usual
bunch of meddling kids: virginal Lori (Monica Keena), her boyfriend Will
(Jason Ritter) - who was one of the few kids who remembered Freddy but
was put into a sanatorium & drugged in order not to dream (hence
depriving Freddy of his battlefield) -, Kia (Kelly Rowland of
Child-fame), young & nerdy but inventive Linderman (Chris
Marquette), dopehead Freeburg (Kyle Labine) & Stubbs (Lochlyn
Munro), who at some point figure out to escape Freddy they have to get
the drugs from sanatorium, but unfortunately their plan goes haywire
when Freddy possesses Freeburg & puts Jason - who is already after
the meddling kids himself - to sleep via an injection (even though his
temporary body is cut apart) to fight him in his
Then it gets really stupid as the kids device yet another
plan that involves Lori pulling Freddy out of her dreams into the real
world & at the same time waking up Jason, 6 all is supposed to
happen on Camp Crystal (from the original Friday
the 13th). After a long fight with tons of explosions it seems
that Freddy has killed Jason but survived the ordeal, now menacingly
closing in on Lori, until Jason, with his dying breath, stabs him from
behind, & Lori beheading him.
Of our human heroes - need I say it
- only Lori & Will have survived.
Despite plotting Freddy
Krueger & Jason Voorhees against each other sounds like a fun idea
& the movie even has relatively decent production values & was
quite successful with a mainstream audience too, it is just the pits: It
tells exactly the same slasher story that has been told for the last 25
years, uses the same clichés & characters, as well as including
many godawful highschool-scenes, with a storyline that is more messed up
& stupid than most of the others in the A
Nightmare on Elm Street-series, while lacking all of its
surreal elements (this is about nightmares after all).
& another thing - this is supposed to be a horrormovie, so why isn't
it in the least scary ?
