Freddy vs. Jason

Synopsis: Two horror icons face off in this supernatural movie. Disfigured serial killer Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), who attacks his victims in their dreams, has lost much of his power since citizens of his town have become less afraid of him. Enlisting the help of fellow violent murderer Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger), Freddy orchestrates a new killing spree. However, when the hockey-mask-wearing psychopath won't stop chopping up Freddy's intended victims, the two ghouls start to battle each other.

FADE IN:

EXT. ELM STREET - DAY

MEAGAN is coming down the sidewalk in slow motion.

Her dress and long hair blow slightly in the breeze.

The SOUND of CHILDREN CHANTING increases.

DREAM CHILDREN:

(in chorus)

One... two... Freddy's coming for

you.

On "you" there is a RUMBLE and a flash -- like quick

lightning only evil. (Choice flashes from Nightmare on

Elm Street 1 & 2).

Meagan turns at 1665. A beautiful white, two-story

house, thick with lush green foliage. Several beautiful

children, all dressed in bright white, play hopscotch

and jumprope on the front walk.

DREAM CHILDREN:

(continuing; chanting)

Three... four... better lock your

door.

Close on a little girl's foot coming down on the number

"4" drawn on concrete.

Another RUMBLE and flash -- longer, LOUDER. (Flashes

from Nightmare 3 & 4).

Meagan continues up the walk, the wind is blowing a

little harder now. The trees are brown, the leaves

peeling away.

Moving up the walk, closer to the house... only now

it's a little darker, needs some paint. On the front

porch, a LITTLE GIRL rides a tricycle.

DREAM CHILDREN:

(continuing; chanting)

Five... six...

RUMBLE. Flash. (Nightmare 5 and Freddy's Dead).

DREAM CHILDREN:

(continuing; chanting)

...grab your crucifix.. ix.. ix..

The "ix" echoes away, becoming the faint "Ka ka ka"

we all recognize as Jason's theme. Meagan turns to

find that the children in the yard have vanished. It's

nighttime.

The trees are dead, the grass is gone, and the horizon

stretches off into utter nothingness. Meagan turns

back to the little girl.

But the little girl has gone. Only the tricycle

remains. It circles once, the front door CREAKS open,

and the empty tricycle peddles inside. Meagan follows

it into the...

INT. HOUSE ON ELM STREET - CONTINUOUS ACTION

Meagan enters the house slowly, watching as the tri-

cycle rides off down a creepy hallway and disappears.

Then the front door blows shut behind Meagan. She

tries to open it -- locked.

Then faint VOICES cause Meagan to pause. She listens,

trying to make out the low murmur. Then a little girl's

GIGGLE. Meagan recognizes it as her sister's.

MEAGAN:

Lizzy?

Meagan moves up the stairs, going down the hall...

following the voices (we recognize the other voice as

belonging to Freddy). Meagan enters a door at the

end of the hallway, moving into...

INT. LIZZY'S ROOM (NIGHTMARE) - CONTINOUS ACTION

On the floor, near her bed, is Meagan's thirteen year

old sister -- LIZZY. Slow for her age, Lizzy sits and

draws with crayons.

MEAGAN:

Lizzy. What are you doing here?

LIZZY:

Playing with my friend.

Meagan looks at the drawings -- childlike renderings

of Freddy.

MEAGAN:

Your friend?

LIZZY:

He lives under the bed.

Meagan slowly gets to her knees and takes a peek under

Lizzy's bed.

Suddenly, a doll-sized Freddy scurries out from under

the bed, flashing past Meagan's face and running out

the door. Meagan yelps and touches her face -- five

tiny slash marks on her cheek. Lizzy clucks.

LIZZY:

(continuing)

You scared him...

Meagan looks out the door, incredulous.

MEAGAN:

I scared him?

But when Meagan looks back, Lizzy is gone.

MEAGAN:

(continuing)

Lizzy?

Lizzy echoes away as Meagan finds herself standing

in the...

INT. NIGHTMARE CHAPEL - CONTINUOUS ACTION

The tiny Freddy dashes from the pews and jumps into

a casket at the altar, slamming the lid shut. Meagan

goes to the casket and carefully opens the lid. Inside

-- a rotting corpse with worms and maggots crawling

all over it. Meagan screams and slams the lid back

down.

The casket starts to move -- THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!

Then it stops. Tentatively, Meagan opens the lid again.

Inside -- FREDDY KRUEGER. He grabs her arm.

FREDDY:

Where ya been all my death, baby?

Meagan screams. Freddy leaps out of the casket in a

tuxedo, crooning:

FREDDY:

(continuing)

I've been waitin' at the altar for

a long, long time!

Meagan looks down -- she's wearing a wedding dress,

spattered with blood. Behind her, the chapel has

filled with dozens of DEAD PEOPLE in various stages

of decay. A SATANIC PRIEST appears in the pulpit and

asks:

SATANIC PRIEST:

Are the bridesmaids in attendance?

Meagan looks to her left -- four girls hold bouquets,

dressed in body bags.

SATANIC PRIEST:

(continuing)

And the groomsmen...?

Freddy opens his tuxedo jacket to reveal several

trapped souls struggling to get out of his chest.

SATANIC PRIEST:

(continuing)

If anyone here believes that these

two should not be joined in unholy

matrimony, let him speak now or

forever rot in hell...

>From the back of the chapel, a voice:

JESSE:

Meagan!

Meagan turns. It's her boyfriend -- JESSE. He stands

in the chapel doorway, backlit by bright light, arms

outstretched.

MEAGAN:

Jesse!

Meagan runs to Jesse and grabs him, their arms

encircling one another. She looks up into Jesse's

eyes... only it isn't Jesse.

It's Jason.

Meagan screams as Jason raises his machete, bringing

it down between her eyes...

TRANSITION CUT TO:

INT. MEAGAN'S ROOM - MORNING

Meagan opens an eye as her alarm clock BUZZES... she

was dreaming. She gets up quickly and crosses to her

dresser. She looks into the mirror, at the tiny cuts

on her cheek, and clucks. Then she exits, going into...

INT. LIZZY'S ROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION

Meagan opens the door to her sister's room, breathing

a sigh of relief when she sees Lizzy curled up in bed

with a doll. Meagan smiles and starts to exit when

she notices something not quite right about the doll.

She moves closer and pulls Lizzy's arm away to reveal

a hideous little Freddy doll. Meagan gasps.

MEAGAN:

Freddy...

Suddenly, the doll opens it's eyes and sneers:

FREDDY DOLL:

Well it ain't Raggedy Ann, b*tch!

The Freddy doll flashes it's tiny glove of knives,

thrusting them deep into Meagan's chest.

HARD CUT TO:

INT. MEAGAN'S ROOM - MORNING (for real)

Meagan sits up suddenly in bed, clutching her chest.

She looks down and sees that there is nothing there.

Meagan sighs and falls back in her bed -- just a bad

dream.

ZZZZZZT! -- her alarm clock BUZZES. Meagan sits up

with a start again. Her fright turns to rage as she

pounds the alarm clock into submission. Meagan climbs

out of bed...

INT. LIZZY'S ROOM - MORNING

Meagan enters and finds Lizzy still asleep, clutching

her Raggedy Ann doll. She gently pries the doll away,

tossing it disdainfully away. Meagan picks up a small

glass unicorn and playfully prances it around on Lizzy's

head.

MEAGAN:

Wake up, sleepy head. Time to wake

up.

Lizzy's eyes flutter open. She smiles at her sister,

then frowns.

LIZZY:

I had a bad dream.

MEAGAN:

Me, too.

LIZZY:

I was scared.

MEAGAN:

Don't worry... they can't hurt you.

LIZZY:

Promise?

MEAGAN:

Promise.

Lizzy hugs Meagan.

MEAGAN:

(continuing)

I'll never let anyone hurt you.

INT. KITCHEN - MORNING

CLOSE ON a small television set on the kitchen table.

A flashy graphic flashes across the screen: AM NEWS

SPECIAL REPORT -- COPS V.S. THE CULT -- DAY 13. A

NEWS REPORTER stands in front a police blockade. In

the background, dozens of POLICE and S.W.A.T. MEN

surround a small run-down, two-story house... Freddy's

house.
