This had much potential and I was so excited when I went to the theatre...until I saw the actual film. Yowsa this is definitely the worst of the Freddy series and heck even the Jason series. Somehow they managed to give Freddy no personality and give Jason more...which doesn't work at all actually. There are a few decent scenes involving a death at a party and of course their giant duel but the good moments are definitely outweighed by the dumb. The teens in this are entirely unlikable also and we want them to die, but when the murderers aren't up to full lustre it's not like I was rooting for them either. I really found this to be a waste of time and a waste of a relatively decent idea.
