It has been almost 10 years since one of the scariest horror characters of all time, Freddy Krueger, invaded the dreams of a generation to exact his deadly form of revenge and murder. Now, Freddy has entered into the dreams of another master of evil, the unstoppable Jason Voorhees -- plunging cinema's two greatest titans of terror into a battle to end all battles.
You can bring two modern horror remakes home in 1080p this September. Freddy vs. Jason and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) will both be released in Blu-ray on September 8. Each disc will be priced at $28.99 SRP and you can take a look at both of the title's cover art and special features below.
The slicer versus the slasher? Two titans of terror going at it mano-a-machete? They're gonna kill each other a lot! The horror (and wicked fun) begins when Freddy realizes he can't haunt dreams because folks no longer fear him. So he enlists Jason to do a little killing on his behalf on Elm Street. Presto, the fear is back - and so is Freddy. One problem: Jason isn't about to stop offing people. And another: Freddy isn't about to let Jason rule Elm Street. This means war. Freddy Vs. Jason. Winner kills all.Read More

No script is in place, and with the writers' strike currently going on, it may be awhile before Freddy vs. Jason 2 gets made. You would think that, since New Line also owns the rights to the Friday franchise, they'd throw Ice Cube in there as well.
Freddy vs. Jason was released August 15th, 2003.Read More
Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been hired to write Friday the 13th, the remake of the horror classic being produced by Platinum Dunes for New Line, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Paramount and MTV Films also are involved with the project.
Paramount released the original Friday the 13th in 1980, making Jason -- the unstoppable hockey mask-wearing killer -- a horror icon, though the serial killer made only a brief appearance in the final frames of the first movie and never killed anyone. Jason didn't even don the famous mask until the third movie.Read More

Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: According to The Hollywood Reporter, even before 20th Century Fox's Alien vs. Predator captured the top spot at the boxoffice over the weekend, New Line Cinema began plotting a new face-off for its horror favorites, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, who had their own moment at the top of the boxoffice in August 2003 with Freddy vs. Jason.
Sources said the studio is in negotiations with director-producer Sam Raimi for a project titled "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash." In the proposed sequel, Freddy (the A Nightmare on Elm Street films) and Jason (the Friday the 13th pics) would go up against Ash, the cynical anti-hero survivor of Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy, which also includes Army of Darkness.Read More
