This is an oldie but a goody. Back in 2003 when Freddy VS Jason was going to hit theaters, it was a big deal. It was the long awaited battle that had long been teased in comics, fan-fic and even at the end of Jason Goes to Hell.
The marketing behind the Freddy VS Jason thing was huge. How huge? Well, so substantial that Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees headed to Vegas for a weigh in. This whole spectacle came complete with announcement by Michael Buffer, who clearly has a hard time getting through his trademark “let’s get ready to rumble” without cracking up.
The weigh in featured a shit talking Freddy and the ever silent Voorhees doing what fighters do in prep for their fight. The real cherry on top is Freddy calling Voorhees a mama’s boy.
All shit talk aside, Voorhees ends up taking the favorite and the rest is history. We all know who ends up winning in the film. Which in itself is kind of a cheat.
It’s Friday the 13, so it’s Jason’s day. But, for my money Krueger should have killed.
