    Witless, excessive and ultimately boring gore-a-thon.

    The best way to sum up Freddy Vs. Jason is: good concept, mediocre execution.

    Truth be told, the movie isn't among the worst sequels of this summer.

    Chicago Tribune Robert K. Elder

    Succeeds as a guilty pleasure, a monster mash that clobbers the recent lackluster sequels plaguing both legacies. If only that were a higher compliment.

    So can Freddy beat up Jason, or what? Let's just say that neither one would have stood a chance against Abbott and Costello.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

not for kids

Scary, gory, nightmare-inducing slasher.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie contains lots of nudity and some sex, lots of foul language, and characters who drink and do drugs. There is also an ambiguous date rape and a brief racial slur towards the only black character in the entire movie. People are gutted, stabbed, impaled, torn apart, sliced open, burned, crushed, and killed in just about any way that produces lots of gushing blood. But if it's any consolation to parents, all the kids who engage in stupid behavior pay for it pretty heavily.

  • Families can talk about the enduring appeal of slasher films, particularly the consistent theme that teens who have sex or use drugs get horribly killed. What message does that send?
