Freddy Vs. Jason is a 2003 American film directed by Ronny Yu and starring Robert Englund, Ken Kirzinger, and Kelly Rowland. A crossover of two of the most popular horror franchises in history, The Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, Freddy Vs. Jason was highly anticipated for many years. Elm Street's Freddy Krueger has been powerless for a number of years after the residents of Springwood have taught their children to forget him, rendering his dream-haunting powers useless. Freddy then conjures Friday's Jason Voorhess, in hopes of scaring the town and bringing him back to power. When Jason murders two local townspeople, rumors of Freddy begin circulating, and when Lori (Monica Campbell) has a dream about him, Freddy regains some of his power. Despite Freddy's protests, Jason continues to kill and massacres many teenagers at a rave. Lori then gets the idea to find a way to pit Jason against Freddy, hoping the two of them will kill each other. First, however, Lori must find a way to bring Freddy into the real world.
