FREDDY VS. JASON
Written by Jonathan Aibel & Glenn Berger
December 1, 1998
A ROARING FIRE crackles in a stone hearth. Soft music
plays. The effect is very romantic.
PULL BACK to reveal the "fire" is actually on
INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
JASON LUCAS, a good-looking 17-year-old wearing a high
school football jersey, sits on the couch with his
eyes closed and a shit-eating grin stretched across
his face. Lit candles and incense set the mood.
Jason takes a swig of beer.
Keep 'em closed. Are they closed?
They better be closed.
LIZZIE DANIELS enters, posing seductively in the door-
way. She's wearing sexy lingerie and fur-covered
stiletto heels. Not that she needs the help -- Lizzie
is beautiful in a girl-next-door-who-sometimes-likes-
to-dress-like-a-tramp kind of way.
Jason opens his eyes. And he's glad he did. Lizzie
saunters over to him, holding a glass of bubbly.
She downs it in one gulp and sits on Jason's lap.
I hope you like it!
But I left the tags on in case you
Lizzie, I love it. You look -- wait,
where are the tags?
You don't want to know.
Suddenly, the TV screen flickers. The fire and music
are replaced by a loud wrestling match. Lizzie pulls
away from Jason and starts scrambling around the room.
>From the way she stumbles, we can tell she's more
a little drunk.
I gotta rewind the fire.
She frantically fumbles, pressing a few buttons on the
remote. The television randomly switches channels.
Finally, the screen is filled with snow and the word
You want to set a mood, why don't
you put in that other tape we
Jason! I want everything to be
perfect, like I always dreamed it
would be -- a big fire, a bottle
of champagne, and the quarterback
of the football team.
You know I'm just second-string.
That's okay. So's the champagne.
Lizzie cracks open a can of Budweiser and pours it
into two champagne flutes. She downs one of the
Lizzie, haven't you had enough?
Lizzie defiantly downs the other glass. She's pretty
drunk by now.
That's weird. I thought my mother
was out of town tonight.
She is. That's why you invited me
Damn right. I'm sick of making out
in the back of your car.
Let's do it in the back of my mom's
I have a better idea.
Jason throws Lizzie's tipsy body over his shoulder and
As Jason walks into the bedroom, Lizzie's head
accidentally SMACKS into the door jamb. She GIGGLES.
INT. LIZZIE'S BEDROOM
Jason tosses Lizzie onto the bed.
I think you better get some sleep.
What?... No, we have to... I got
all sexy for you...
Lizzie lets out a sour BURP. Jason winces.
You know, we don't have to return
the fire until Monday. Maybe we
can try again...
But Lizzie has already PASSED OUT. He stares at her
for a moment -- her arms and legs splayed out, hair
tousled, lingerie hiked up. Lizzie's a mess, but
what a mess! She looks pretty tempting...
After a long beat, Jason musters the strength, pulls
the blanket over Lizzie, kisses her on the forehead,
and leaves the room.
INT. BEDROOM - LATER
Lizzie is sleeping. Suddenly she stirs, sensing she
is being watched. She sees someone in the doorway
What're you staring at, you big
We hear HEAVY BREATHING.
Come on. Hop in.
More heavy breathing. Lizzie sits up.
A voice hisses from the darkness.
A RAZOR-FINGERED GLOVE appears in a burst of cold,
icy blue flame!
The figure moves into the bedroom. It's...
Freddy GLIDES to the foot of the bed.
Jason can't help you now.
He CACKLES as his grotesque, burn-scarred face erupts
in a BLAST of blazing hellfire.
Lizzie scrambles out of bed and tears out of the room,
narrowly avoiding Freddy and his flame-throwing claw.
Lizzie runs to the Westec keypad on the wall. Her
fingers shake as she tries to arm the alarm.
FREDDY'S CLAW suddenly rips the keypad off the wall.
Freddy swats at Lizzie, edging her back onto the
landing at the top of the stairs.
Freddy swats at Lizzie again. She ducks, loses
her balance, and TUMBLES violently down the stairs.
INT. LIVING ROOM
Lizzie lies at the bottom of the stairs, cowering
in fear, as Freddy slowly walks down the stairs.
He CACKLES menacingly.
Jason is dead!
And with that, Freddy hurls a charred, flaming SKULL
The skull screams forward, missing Lizzie's face by
inches. Then it inexplicably changes course and
flies back up the stairs, disappearing into Freddy's
dark advancing silhouette.
What do you want?!
I want you to die.
Freddy lashes out with his razor claw, leaving five
deep gouges in the wall.
The PHONE RINGS. Lizzie looks to it but doesn't dare
move. The answering machine picks up.
MRS. DANIELS (V.O.)
You've reached the Daniels residence.
Please leave a message.
This is Westec Security. We're
getting a system failure on your
Lizzie takes a chance and dives for the phone.
Help me! Please!
Freddy SLICES the phone cord with his claw.
Lizzie turns and runs down a hallway as Freddy stalks
steadily forward, clawing the length of the wall.
She runs through the kitchen... and out a door to...
Lizzie races through the backyard and
SMACK! She runs into a WESTEC SECURITY GUARD with
his gun drawn.
Ma'am, is everything--
Freddy suddenly appears and strikes at the guard's
head. The guard SCREAMS as Freddy's claw rakes
across his cheek. Blood spews everywhere.
The guard TUMBLES and CRASHES through a sliding
Lizzie jumps through the shower of glass, over the
guard's body, and runs back into the house.
Lizzie races, terror stricken, through the kitchen...
the hallway... and into the living room.
She reaches the front door and fumbles to undo the
locks. She looks over her shoulder. FREDDY slowly
walks towards her, his razor claw poised to strike.
His eyes burn into Lizzie's. She can't look away.
Wake up, Lizzie.
Lizzie SHRIEKS and manages to get one of the locks
Wake up before you can't.
THE GUARD, bleeding heavily, moves cautiously into the
room. He places himself between Lizzie and Freddy and
assumes a wobbly shooting stance, his gun aimed at
Suddenly, FREDDY'S ARM stretches nightmarishly forward.
His razor claw connects with the guard's gun hand.
The gun goes flying. Then, SNAP! Freddy's arm
retracts, dragging the guard down to his hands and
THE GUN lands on the carpet at Lizzie's feet.
Freddy grabs the stunned guard's hair and yanks his
head back, exposing his neck. The guard panics and
yells to Lizzie.
Lizzie looks at the gun, then the door, then the
guard. But she does nothing. Freddy CACKLES.
Get my gun. P-l-e-a-s-e!
Lizzie is hysterical. Fighting her fear, she
tentatively reaches for the gun... but she hesitates
when FREDDY'S CLAW makes a shallow cut across the
guard's neck. With trembling hands, she grabs the
gun and points it unsteadily at Freddy.
For God's sake, shoot him!
You can't kill Freddy.
Freddy cuts again, this time a little deeper. Lizzie's
hands begin to shake uncontrollably.
YOU CAN'T KILL FEAR!
Freddy raises his claw for the death blow.
Jesus Christ! Do something!
Racked with terror, Lizzie DROPS the gun and--
Freddy drives the razors straight into the guard's
back! The guard falls, DEAD, onto the carpet in a
pool of blood.
Lizzie snaps out of it. She throws open the last
lock and yanks open the front door.
Lizzie bursts from the house. Freddy follows close
behind, cackling with murderous glee. Suddenly he's
hit with a BLINDING LIGHT. And then another.
A half-dozen COPS stand on the front lawn, their
guns pointed at Freddy.
Down on the ground!
Freddy doesn't move.
I said down on the ground!
Freddy just SCRAPES his razor claws together and
smiles. The cops exchange uneasy looks. Three of
them pull out their nightsticks and converge on Freddy.
One pulls out a pair of handcuffs and reaches for
Freddy LASHES OUT viciously with his razor glove.
The cop narrowly avoids the blow and brings his
nightstick crashing into Freddy's jaw. But Freddy
doesn't go down.
LIZZIE races frantically around the yard in her
Another COP tries to calm Lizzie down as the others
SWARM Freddy and rain blow after blow on his legs
and back. He absorbs the punishment, all the while
staring at Lizzie with an evil grin.
Freddy LASHES OUT again. A COP blocks the blow with
his nightstick and quickly twists Freddy's arm behind
his back, slamming a pair of handcuffs on him. As
he locks them into place, Freddy's razor claw drops
to the ground. A LONG SPRING unravels, dangling
and bouncing from inside.
What the hell?
After a beat, the cop standing in front of Freddy
leans in for a closer look at his scarred face. He
reaches out and dips his fingers into the burned
flesh, pulling Freddy's face right off as the fedora
falls to the ground!
This isn't Freddy Krueger at all, but a young, mask-
Lizzie stares in shock at her attacker's pale, gaunt,
skull-like features. A face even scarier than Freddy
Krueger's, if that's possible. He glares back at her.
This isn't over, Lizzie. Freddy
wants you dead!
Lizzie crumbles to her knees, SCREAMING into the dark-
ness of night.
CAMERA CRANES UP, as if carried aloft by the echo of
Lizzie's scream. Just as we crest the top of the
trees, a blinding FLASH of light burns the scene out.
Creepy rock music pounds as we:
TITLE SEQUENCE - FREDDY VS. JASON
As the flash subsides, we see the attacker's Freddy
mask and fedora come into focus, followed by another
flash of blinding white. Then we see the spring-
actuated razor glove. It has tubing connected to
miniature propane tanks. Flash! The green and red
PULL BACK TO REVEAL
A police photographer cataloging evidence. He adjusts
his flash and leans in to take a picture of one last
item: The charred, screaming skull, which is revealed
to be nothing more than a clever, make-shift yo-yo
INT. POLICE STATION - NIGHT
Lizzie sits in a small, dimly lit interrogation room.
Laid out on the table in front of her are the various
copy-cat Freddy implements. Lizzie stares uneasily
at the blood-speckled razor claw.
Why did he pick me? I've never seen
this guy before in my life.
SHERIFF ERNIE BATSON steps out of the shadows. He's
a small town sheriff, more used to drunk drivers and
speeding tickets than a grizzly murder. He seems
edgy and a little overwhelmed.
He knew your name. Maybe you just
didn't get a good enough look. It
was dark, you were hysterical, he
was wearing a mask. We really need
you to take another look at him.
He walks over to the one-way mirror that lines the
front of the room and reaches for a rheostat.
What? He's in the next room? No!
Lizzie, please. This is very
I'm sorry. I can't.
The door opens. DEPUTY REESE enters.
Still can't reach the mom, Sheriff,
but we found the boyfriend.
Lizzie looks up, breaking down in tears.
Oh, my God. Is he alright? Is he
Dammit, Reese! I'm trying to conduct
a police investigation here. You
don't just barge--
Is he okay?!
Jason enters and rushes over to Lizzie.
I'm fine. Everything's going to be
Lizzie hugs Jason -- so tight it looks like she'll
never let him go.
What happened to you? I thought you
I was downstairs in the kitchen
making you my hangover remedy and
you were out of aspirin and Tabasco
so I walked over to Todd's...
TODD saunters in. He's Jason's best friend -- a
charming wise ass with quirky good looks. He holds
two styrofoam cups.
Batson stares at him a beat, then turns to Lizzie.
I'm sorry, your friends have to wait
No, please. I don't want to be alone
Her eyes dart nervously toward the mirror. Batson
SIGHS and grabs a coffee from Todd.
He walks over to the light dimmer and turns it up.
We can now see into the other room.
LIZZIE'S ATTACKER sits on the other side of the glass,
in handcuffs and leg irons. With his cadaverous face,
sinewy body, and malevolent leer, he is a vision of
pure evil. And he is staring right at Lizzie.
He can't see me, can he?
Don't worry, it's a one-way mirror.
Lizzie, clearly spooked, gets up and takes a seat
next to Jason -- as far from the mirror as possible.
Jason puts his arm around her. Batson refers to a
He says his name is Dominic Necros.
That ring anything?
Lizzie slowly looks up and notices that the evil stare
has followed her across the room. Lizzie freaks and
turns away from the mirror.
For Christ's sake, I'd remember a
face like that. Now, turn it off,
I can't look at him anymore!
Batson SIGHS and turns down the dimmer, returning
Dominic to near-darkness. Batson looks at his notepad
Okay, according to the report, he
told you that... uh... "Freddy wants
you dead." Now, who's Freddy? Ex-
Jason and Todd exchange looks -- can you believe this
I think he means Freddy Krueger.
Mmm hmm. You have any idea why this
Krueger would want you dead?
He doesn't. He's just a movie
Batson looks confused.
This nut-job is copying Freddy
Krueger. You know, Nightmare On Elm
Street? Bastard son of a thousand
maniacs, burned to death by angry
parents? Seeks revenge on teenagers?
The guy in the hockey mask.
(with exaggerated patience)
No, that's Jason Voorhees. Friday The
13th. Retarded kid who drowned at
summer camp. Seeks revenge on teen-
They're completely different characters.
Reese bursts into the room again, this time holding a
computer printout. He looks agitated.
Sheriff, we ran the name and prints
through the computer... nothing. But
get this: his M.O. matches seven
unsolved murders throughout the
(referring to printout)
All teenagers... all cut wide open...
by five parallel blades.
Reese glances uneasily at the razor glove. Batson
snatches the printout from him and looks it over.
The blood drains from his face.
Batson notices that Todd, Jason and especially Lizzie,
are looking at him, freaked out by what they've just
(covering, but clearly rattled)
I wouldn't worry, Lizzie. We'll just
let the FBI take over from here...
Yeah, they'll know what to do. They...
um... uh... Could you excuse me?
Batson hurries out of the room. Reese just stands
there, awkwardly. After a beat...
Okay, then. You all have a good night.
Reese ushers the kids towards the door. As Lizzie
walks past the mirror, she steals one last look out
of the corner of her eye. Dominic is definitely
watching her, his evil leer following her out of the
room. She turns away.
CRASH! Dominic smashes his head through the mirror.
Everyone jumps back as he LAUNCHES his whole body
through the jagged hole in the mirror. Lizzie SCREAMS
as she is showered with glass.
Freddy is real!
Reese tries to restrain him, but he is no match for
Dominic's strength. He swings his head violently,
SMASHING Reese's nose, sending him to his knees.
Dominic turns on Lizzie.
You're scared, aren't you?
Lizzie trembles, eyes wide with terror. She doesn't
need to answer.
That's good! Your fear is what
brings him here!
Dominic shoves Lizzie up against the wall, his face
pressed against hers.
I wouldn't go to sleep tonight if
I were you. I'd never sleep again!
Suddenly, Dominic SHAKES VIOLENTLY and FALLS to the
floor. Behind him stands a bloodied REESE who looks
down at his TASER with a "Hey, it works!"
Jason and Todd pull Lizzie out of the room as Dominic
writhes and convulses on the floor.
INT. LIZZIE'S HOUSE - DAY
A woman's face peers down into camera. This is MRS.
DANIELS, Lizzie's mother. She looks at something and
Stainmaster, my ass.
A middle-aged MAN wearing a "Carpet City" hat
That's not coming out. Not that much
blood. Not out of a white carpet.
The white living room carpet is covered with an enormous
BLOOD STAIN. Two Mexican guys fruitlessly scrub a
small portion of the stain.
Ramón, Jesús -- don't waste your
time. We're gonna have to replace
the whole thing. And the padding.
Can you believe the cops don't clean
up after a murder? I mean, half these
footprints are theirs.
The doorbell rings. Mrs. Daniels looks through the
peephole and lets in Lizzie's friends -- Jason, Todd,
MARNIE, SAM, and BETH.
Hi, Mrs. Daniels.
Jason, thank God it's you and not
another goddamn news crew.
MARNIE, Todd's beautiful, tall, model-thin, self-
absorbed girlfriend, frowns.
I missed the news cameras?
Life is so unfair.
They enter the house and are not prepared for the
amount of blood they see. It's not just on the carpet.
It's everywhere. SAM, Jason's other best friend and
occasional pain in the ass, makes a beeline for a
set of bloody handprints on the wall. He puts his
own hand up to it and compares.
Lizzie, honey, your friends came by
to cheer-- Sam, get your freakin'
hands off the walls.
Lizzie comes out of her bedroom. She looks like she
hasn't slept for days. She turns a corner and JUMPS,
startled by a Westec man who is reinstalling the alarm
keypad into the wall.
She goes down the stairs, retracing the trail of
destruction left by Dominic Necros.
Lizzie enters the living room, doing her best not to
notice the stained carpet. She sees her friends and
So, you like what I've done with
Marnie and Beth rush over and hug her. BETH, Sam's
girlfriend, is funky, tough, and brutally honest.
Oh, my God. Are you okay? You look
Beth, please! Of course she looks
terrible. You have any idea what
she's been through?
Uh, ladies? I said take her mind off
Good luck. Mom, we're going outside
-- I gotta get out of this house.
Have you called the real estate woman
Mmm hmm. That dead guard knocked
twenty percent off our resale value.
Looks like we're stuck here.
Lizzie darkens and walks out of the room. Her friends
follow, except SAM, who lingers behind. He looks at
the stained carpet and shakes his head.
That's not coming out.
Yeah, no kidding.
Okay, Dad. See you at dinner.
Lizzie and her friends pass blood and claw marks
running the entire length of the hall. A WORKER is
spackling over some of the deeper gouges. Todd
WHISTLES, oddly impressed.
Man, that rent-a-cop didn't stand
If he had a gun, why didn't he
(a painful memory)
It got knocked out of his hands. He
couldn't get to it. He couldn't...
Jeez, Lizzie, you must've been scared
Lizzie lowers her eyes and picks up the pace.
They turn the corner and enter...
INT. LAUNDRY ROOM
Lizzie reaches for some towels. Beth looks in the
laundry basket. It's filled with a bloody welcome
mat and curtains.
The thing is, you never know what
you're gonna do in a situation like
that until it happens.
They head out to the...
But if it were me, I would've kicked
that freak right in the balls. Yeah,
that's what I would've done.
Let's hope you never have to find
Lizzie walks away. Jason shakes his head at Beth,
disapprovingly, and pushes her into the pool. Every-
EXT. BACKYARD - LATER
We pan across the yard. Sam and Beth are in the pool
tossing around a beach ball. Jason and Todd man the
grill. Lizzie and Marnie sit around a patio table
in the shade of an umbrella.
You are so lucky you missed the
English mid-term. An essay on Madame
Bovary's descent into madness --
okay, I think I aced that -- but
the multiple choice section was a
Lizzie's eyes flutter and close for a second.
Lizzie catches herself. Her eyes snap back open.
I'm okay... It's just... I haven't
really slept since--
I hear the cat scratching at the door
in the middle of the night and I just
know it's "The Masked Psycho" coming
to get me.
Lizzie, Dominic Necros is in jail.
And he's not getting out.
Yeah, I wouldn't worry about "The
Masked Psycho". Or at least the
Todd reaches into his backpack and pulls out a rubber
Freddy mask. Lizzie GASPS and draws back. Everybody
stares at the mask in disbelief. Sam and Beth paddle
over to take a closer look. Todd smiles proudly.
How the hell did you get that?
I snagged it at the jail while
Dominic was going apeshit. Pretty
You've got to give that back. It's
evidence or something.
No, we gotta keep it. That way, the
next time Lizzie sees this face,
she'll know it's the real Freddy,
and not some copycat.
Everyone LAUGHS. Including Lizzie.
Sam jumps out of the pool and grabs the mask.
Yeah, but I wouldn't worry about Mr.
Frederic J. Krueger. I've seen all
the movies. First of all, he can only
get you in your nightmares.
That's why the girl in the movie is
I don't want to go to sleep. Don't
let me fall asleep!
That's not why I haven't been
I know, I know. We're just fucking
But she falls asleep anyway. And then
Freddy comes. Because she's afraid.
And fear is what brings him.
He shakes the mask and does a Freddy CACKLE. Every-
one LAUGHS, except Lizzie, who tries to conceal her
But seriously, if Freddy does come
Sam puts the Freddy mask on Todd, then turns his back
Just turn around and tell him you're
You don't scare me, Freddy Krueger!
And he'll go away.
Todd picks up a barbecue fork and stabs Sam in the ass.
Sam SCREAMS, launches forward, and falls into the pool.
Except Lizzie, who is looking out over the fence at
the edge of the property.
Did we see a shadow move behind a tree on the other
side of the fence?
BACK TO SCENE
Lizzie's eyes snap open. She sees Marnie looking
I thought I saw something.
Lizzie continues staring off.
JASON comes over next to the table with a platter of
hamburgers and sits down next to Lizzie.
Let's see, we got well, medium well,
and, well... burnt.
Jason starts to serve Marnie a burger.
Not with that fork. It's got ass on
I'll take the burnt one, but I'm
gonna need a whole lot of ketchup.
Todd motions for Lizzie to pass him the bottle. Lizzie
doesn't notice -- she's still looking over the fence.
We see another shadow move... this time closer, ducking
down behind the fence. Suddenly, a face appears
between two broken slats... it's FREDDY KRUEGER!
BACK TO SCENE
Lizzie's eyes flutter as she fights to remain awake.
Her eyes snap open, wide with fear.
Oh, my God! He's out there!
Jason stands up, and looks over the fence.
We see woods. Nothing else.
BACK TO SCENE
Jason sits back down and puts his arm around Lizzie.
There's nothing there.
I saw him.
Lizzie shudders. Jason puts an arm around her to
Maybe you should go inside and lie
down? You're gonna have to sleep
sooner or later...
Lizzie still stares at the fence. She blinks, fighting
off sleep. A gust of wind blows. Lizzie shudders,
He's here! I know it!
She tears away from Jason and stumbles toward the fence.
Lizzie, don't do this to yourself.
Lizzie reaches the fence. It's too high for her to
see over. She nervously peers through a knot-hole
ANOTHER EYE staring right back at her! Lizzie SCREAMS.
A NEWS CAMERA and its operator rise over the fence
on a hydraulic boom. Lizzie SCREAMS again, falling
backwards onto the pavement.
Everyone runs over. Jason helps Lizzie up and shields
her from the camera.
You wanna put something on the news?
How 'bout these?
Marnie lifts up her bikini top and flashes the camera.
Sam puts on the Freddy mask and moonwalks across the
lawn. Todd grabs a hose and sprays the camera man.
As Lizzie realizes her worst nightmare is not coming
to pass, she breaks out in relieved LAUGHTER.
INT. LIZZIE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
CLOSE-UP of Lizzie.
You're not going to sleep. You're
gonna stay up all night keeping
watch... standing guard... not
going anywhere... even to pee--
Now we see the whole bedroom. Jason, in boxers and
a t-shirt, is just about to jump into bed. Lizzie
moves in front of him, blocking his way.
Lizzie, I'm not going anywhere.
Except to pee.
Promise you'll never leave me again?
Lizzie flirtatiously traces a cross on Jason's chest.
Cross your heart and hope to die?
Cross my heart and hope to die.
Jason brings his hand to Lizzie's heart and kisses her.
He slips his hand inside her pajama top and the kissing
gets more intense. Until Lizzie pulls away.
Did you lock the front door?
They kiss again. Lizzie pulls away again.
Did you set the alarm?
Another kiss. Again, she pulls away.
Did you lock the bedroom door?
Jason suddenly looks concerned.
WHAM! The door bursts open and Lizzie's mom enters.
Jason pulls his hand out of Lizzie's pajamas.
We weren't doing any--
Lizzie, I want to talk to you about
She reaches into a brown paper bag and pulls out a
What the hell are you doing?!
It's your Uncle Al's. He wants you
to keep it in your room.
Are you crazy? Forget it!
Better a gun in the house than a
She puts the gun in Lizzie's purse.
Al's gonna come by and teach us how
to use it. He says it's just like
the camera he bought you for Christ-
mas -- point and shoot.
She turns to leave. Lizzie is weirded out.
Good night, Mom.
'Night, Mrs. Daniels.
Lizzie's mom stops in the doorway.
What? You thought I was gonna let
you sleep up here?
Let's go, stud, on the couch.
Mom exits. Lizzie looks panicked.
Jason, you promised!
(extra loud, for Mom's benefit)
You heard your mother. I'm on the
Meet me down there as soon as she's
Jason gives Lizzie a kiss and exits. Lizzie sits on
her bed, keeping the lights on and her eyes very open.
She looks around the room nervously. Her alarm clock
INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
>From a high angle, we see Jason shuffling along the
carpet in his socks. He's drawing a heart in the
brand new shag.
INT. LIZZIE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
Lizzie has fallen asleep. We hear a tapping sound
at the window. The shadow of Freddy's claw slowly
moves across Lizzie's face. Her eyes snap open.
She looks out the window and sees...
Just a tree branch, scraping at the window as it
blows in the wind.
Lizzie smiles with relief, then looks at her alarm
clock. It reads 1:27. Shit!
INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
Lizzie creeps down the stairs. The house is silent.
Moonlight filters in through the windows, causing
shadows of trees to play eerily across the room.
Jason, are you asleep?
Lizzie sees him lying on the couch, under a blanket.
Lizzie silently crawls in next to him. She slides
her hand under the blanket and smiles.
You're not asleep now.
Lizzie pulls down the blanket and comes face to face
But you are!
Lizzie jumps and falls backwards down onto the floor.
Backlit by moonlight, Freddy's dark, menacing shape
moves forward, razor claw sadistically taunting.
But this is no masked copycat -- it's the real Freddy.
He appears more nightmarishly menacing than ever
before. His red and green sweater is but ancient
tatters, barely covering an inhumanly cadaverous form.
Twisted burn-scar flesh is stretched tight over
misshapen sinew and gnarled, elongated bone.
Welcome to your nightmare.
Lizzie begins to SOB uncontrollably and weakly swats
at Freddy, trying to keep him at bay. Freddy CHUCKLES.
You can't fight.
He moves forward in an unearthly manner. As he reaches
out, his bones grind to a stop, locking tight, then
suddenly snap toward her with surprising release.
Your arms are useless.
Freddy paws at her, toying sadistically, staring deep
into Lizzie's frightened eyes. She tries to push him
away, but her right arm suddenly transforms. It
WRITHES AROUND UNCONTROLLABLY, a boneless, slug-like
mass with a mind of its own. Repulsed by the sight,
Freddy snatches at her again. She tries to push
him away with her other arm. But it's no use, as
it too becomes another useless, slug-like appendage.
Now, both her arms slide impotently over Freddy as he
moves in on her, pressing his body up against hers.
You can't escape.
Lizzie's legs slowly de-bone, collapse, and transform
into thick, fat, gelatinous coils. She slides down
the wall, trying desperately to support herself. But
Jason! For God's sake, where are
Lizzie desperately attempts to flee -- but her body
refuses to do her bidding. She slithers across the
floor, a mass of wet, writhing flesh.
Freddy stands over her, laughing sadistically.
You're going to die in this house!
Lizzie undulates and roils wildly across the floor.
Freddy bellows, enjoying her violent struggle.
Go ahead... try to run! I control
Freddy's face suddenly contorts into a physically
impossible, ghoulish grin. He CACKLES maniacally
and launches Lizzie into the sliding glass door and--
CRASH! THE DOOR SHATTERS!
Lizzie lands in a heap on the other side of the door.
Then, in a strange elastic blur, she regains her
HER BODY RETURNS TO NORMAL! She runs!
Lizzie scrambles across her yard, cutting into the
In a series of quick cuts, Lizzie darts between
trees... over stumps... across a bridge. Freddy
claws after her, his laughter reverberating through
the woods. She's disoriented. Suddenly, she breaks
into a clearing and finds herself alongside a
She looks around, not sure where she is, or if she's
lost Freddy. THUNDER and LIGHTNING! Lizzie turns
and sees a sign which reads:
CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE
Without warning, FREDDY KRUEGER jumps in front of
it, CACKLING. Lizzie takes off. Freddy chases her
OLD RICKETY DOCK
Lizzie reaches the end and turns around, cornered.
Jason can't help you, Lizzie. No
one can. It's just you and me.
And one of us is going to die.
Freddy grabs her and draws his razor hand back for
the death blow.
Freddy moves to strike, but a giant hand grabs him
by the back of the neck. Freddy is lifted off the
ground. His feet dangle helplessly, his body
whipped around, until he finds himself face-to-face
Jason raises his machete. Freddy SCREAMS. Just
before the machete strikes, Freddy desperately
swings his razor claw, just barely managing to SLICE
As Lizzie CRIES OUT, the background DISSOLVES away,
INT. SLEEP DISORDER CLINIC - DAY
Lizzie continues SCREAMING the most blood-curdling
horror movie scream of all time.
Camera sweeps down on Lizzie, lying on a hospital bed,
surrounded by medical equipment and lab-coated TECH-
NICIANS. DR. ADAMS quickly moves in to comfort her.
Lizzie, it's okay. You're safe here.
Lizzie's eyes snap open. She grabs the EEG stand and
swings it hard, SMASHING it into Dr. Adams' head,
sending him reeling backwards into a supply cabinet.
Glass flies everywhere.
The technicians scramble to restrain Lizzie. We
notice a long, bleeding GASH on her arm while she
flails about and continues SCREAMING.
INT. DOCTOR'S OFFICE - LATER
Lizzie and her concerned mom sit across a table from
Dr. Adams, who now holds an ice-pack to his head, and
DR. RUBIN, a soft-spoken older man.
The same dream night after night,
all week. She wakes up screaming
her head off. She's not getting any
sleep. Please tell me you can help.
Mrs. Daniels, all our tests indicate
normal brain function. There is
nothing wrong with your daughter...
physically. That's why I've asked
Dr. Rubin to join us.
I'm the clinic's Chief of Psychiatry.
Lizzie turns to the doctor.
You think I'm fucking crazy?
We don't like to use that word around
here. Crazy. You can say "fucking"
all you want.
Lizzie smiles and relaxes a little.
Lizzie, nightmares are perfectly
normal. It's the way your subconscious
works through trauma.
You think this is normal? This time
he cut me!
She holds up her bloodied, bandaged arm.
You cut yourself when you woke up.
Nobody can hurt you in your dream.
He cut me, Doctor. I went to sleep
and Freddy Krueger tried to kill me.
And then Jason Voorhees tried to
kill him. It doesn't make any sense.
Oh, but it does. You were attacked
by a man pretending to be Freddy
Krueger. This leaves you feeling
helpless and vulnerable, so you dream
up another monster to protect you,
who just happens to have the same
name as your boyfriend.
Yeah, that's all very interesting.
Now can you make the nightmares stop?
No. Only you can. By learning how to
control your dreams.
This isn't what Lizzie wanted to hear. Dr. Rubin
crosses over to a medicine cabinet and unlocks it.
I'm researching a new drug called
Somnambulene. It's a ketamine
derivative that increases delta wave
function in the brain to maximize
Stage 3 sleep--
In English -- it puts you in the
perfect dream state and keeps you
there all night.
Dr. Rubin pulls out a bottle and shakes out a
Somnambulene into the palm of his hand. The clear
gel-cap contains a green liquid that seems to glow
ever so slightly.
(looking at pill, horrified)
I'm not gonna take that. Why would
I want to be trapped in my nightmare?
Because until this subconscious
battle plays itself out, your night-
mares will never end.
Lizzie looks away, terrified. Dr. Adams turns to her
We've had good results with it so
far, and the side effects are
The usual. Headache, dryness of
mouth, nausea, and... uh...
Dr. Rubin pauses. Dr. Adams looks down at his shoes.
A few of the patients in our clinic
who took Somnambulene reported...
well, they thought they could share
each others' dreams.
That sounds fucking crazy.
You have to remember, the subjects
were severely sleep deprived. Most
likely they were hallucinating.
Statistically, you have a far
greater chance of suffering severe
diarrhea than you do of "sharing
dreams". I wouldn't worry.
The doctor holds out the bottle of pills. Lizzie
doesn't take it. Her mom does.
INT. LIZZIE'S BEDROOM - DAY
Lizzie sits on the edge of her bed. Her mom stands
over her, holding a Somnambulene and a cup of water.
Why won't you take the pills? They
said it will help. Is it the
It's everything -- the nightmares,
the attack, the house... I hate it
Lizzie, you can't just run away from
your problems. They always catch up
with you. Unless you're your father,
who hasn't sent a child support check
in four years.
I just-- I can't go to sleep.
I don't wanna die.
Lizzie, would you listen to yourself?
Nothing's going to happen to you.
You are not going to die. But you
are going to take this pill.
She holds the pill in front of Lizzie's face. This
time she won't take no for an answer.
Lizzie reluctantly holds out her hand. Her mother
drops the pill into Lizzie's palm. Lizzie stares at
it for a beat, then pops it in her mouth. She looks
to her mother, who nods and smiles. She hands Lizzie
the cup of water. Lizzie takes it and drinks.
You'll see, everything will be
better in the morning.
If I'm still here in the morning.
Lizzie sets the cup down on the nightstand. Mom
ANGLE ON THE CUP
The green capsule floats in the water. We see it
BACK TO SCENE
Sweet dreams, honey.
Mrs. Daniels grabs the cup of water and heads out
the door. She takes a big swig of the water.
Lizzie's eyes widen.
Uh... Good night.
EXT. SAM'S HOUSE - DAY
Sam, Beth, Todd, and Marnie are loading beer and
sleeping bags into the back of a "Carpet City"
Jason and Lizzie are off to the side, having a
You did the right thing. You don't
need your mom and her drugs. You've
got us and our drugs.
Lizzie looks up and sees a beer sailing towards her
face. Jason reaches out and catches it. He hands
it to Lizzie, who LAUGHS and cracks it open.
What'd your mom say when you told
her you were leaving?
Oh, she doesn't care... She's, um,
out for the night.
Lizzie smiles and takes a sip of her beer. Todd
cracks open another for himself.
So where we headed?
We could go to the beach and drink.
That's so junior high. Let's go to
the desert. I've always wanted to
drink in the desert.
Forget it. I've got a better idea.
INT. CARPET CITY VAN - A MOMENT LATER
Sam jumps behind the wheel, Beth is in the passenger
seat. The rest of the gang sits in the back cargo
area on books of carpet samples.
Your dad is gonna go wall to wall
on your ass when he finds out you
took one of his vans.
Hell, he'll miss the beer before
he misses the van.
As Sam starts the engine, CAMERA CRANES UP AND AWAY
as the van takes off from his house and drives through
the streets on its way out of town.
EXT. HIGHWAY - LATER
As the van speeds down a four-lane highway, we hear
rock music pounding.
EXT. WOODS - AND NOW, EVEN LATER
The busy highway has given way to a country road. The
van passes under a canopy of trees. It turns onto a
small dirt road and crosses over an old wooden bridge.
EXT. LAKE - SUNSET
The van slowly pulls up to a lake which is ringed
by a lush, dense forest. The sun is just beginning
to go down, bathing the water in a warm, golden light.
THE VAN'S BACK DOORS
Swing open. Everyone piles out, rushing past camera.
Everyone except Lizzie.
Look at this place!
Hope the water's warm.
We can go skinny dipping!
Any excuse to take off your top.
That's why I love her.
You love me?
Uh-- I'm gonna go check the water.
They all run off. Jason turns back to Lizzie.
Lizzie steps out of the van and looks around
Jason, of all the places we could
have gone... a lake?
Sure, why not?
Um... my nightmares?
Jason turns Lizzie so she's facing the lake.
Yeah, I know. And in your nightmares,
the lake is where you run when you're
scared, right? It's where you go to
He smiles and puts his arm around her.
Lizzie smiles and LAUGHS, her mood lightening. She
reaches into the van and grabs a frisbee.
Jason starts running backwards towards Sam, Marnie,
Beth, and Todd, who are standing at the water's edge.
Lizzie sends the frisbee flying with a powerful throw.
Jason chases after the frisbee. Sam jumps in front
of him to intercept. WHAMMO! The frisbee SLAMS into
Sam's throat and caroms over a hill.
You almost took my head off.
Jason chases after the frisbee, disappearing over the
hill. After a short beat...
Whoa, guys, check this out!
Everyone runs toward the hill.
EXT. LAKE - CONTINUOUS
When they reach the top, they see...
A number of SMALL CABINS scattered throughout the
woods, the remains of a sleep-away camp that looks
like it hasn't been used in years. The sun has just
set, bathing the camp in the eerie, blue light of
LIZZIE stares at the cabins. The wind blows through
her hair. She shivers as a chill moves up her spine.
Jason is standing in front of one of the cabins,
holding the frisbee.
Screw the tents. Why don't we stay
EXT. MAIN CABIN - NIGHTFALL
It's dark now. Everyone stands on the porch of the
large main cabin. The van is now parked in front.
Jason tries the door.
Shit. It's locked.
Without missing a beat, Sam kicks the door open.
Try it now.
INT. MAIN CABIN - NIGHT
Pitch black. Jason tries the light switch. Nothing.
He snaps on a flashlight and shines it around the
room. We see cobwebs, furniture stacked up in the
corners, weeds growing through the floorboards.
The flashlight weakens and dies. Pitch black, again.
I'll look for a generator.
Yeah, watch out for Dominic Necros.
We hear a SLAP.
INT. MAIN CABIN - LATER
The walls flicker with the dim lights powered by an
old generator. We see that we are in the largest
room of the vast cabin.
A few couches have been pushed to the middle, a fire
rages in the old stone fireplace, and a boombox plays
Beth and Marnie roast hotdogs and marshmallows over
the open flames.
Everyone is in a festive mood, except Lizzie, who's
staring out the window. Jason comes up behind her
and gives her a kiss on the neck. She jumps.
What? I can't kiss you anymore?
I'm sorry. It's just...
Her voice trails off. Suddenly, the room is illuminated
by a flash of LIGHTNING and rocked with a clap of
THUNDER. Rain begins to pound the roof.
Lizzie startles and turns back to the window.
She peers out into the night just as another flash of
lightning illuminates the lake! The sudden storm
transforms the landscape into a menacing environment
eerily reminiscent of Lizzie's nightmare.
Lizzie turns back to her friends.
We have to go home.
Come on, Lizzie, it's just a little
You don't understand... I've been
here before... In my nightmare.
Lizzie, don't start.
Every time I go to sleep, Freddy
Krueger tries to kill me.
Marnie shrinks back against Todd.
He chases me out of the house... to
a lake... a lake just like this one.
Sam begins to SNICKER. Jason punches him in the arm.
And every night, right as Freddy is
about to kill me... Jason comes out
of the lake and saves me.
Way to go, man!
(you're not going to believe
The guy from Halloween?
Friday the 13th.
Oh, my God!
Impossible. Jason died in the last
sequel. Again. And the only way to
reanimate him is with a human heart.
We forgot to pack the human heart.
Hey, Beth, check the cooler.
Beth and the guys LAUGH. But Marnie is starting to
Why are you telling us this? I
don't want to be here anymore.
Take me home.
Marnie is truly upset. Her eyes begin to well with
tears. Todd places his arm around her, reassuringly.
Come on. Lizzie's fucking with us.
It's just a ghost story.
Marnie turns to Lizzie, hoping Todd's right, hoping
it's just a joke. Lizzie looks at the others, suddenly
realizing how crazy she sounds.
Oh. Yeah... I'm sorry. Just...
trying to scare you.
She leans back.
A HUGE RAT
Pops out from the shadows and SCREECHES at Lizzie!
Lizzie SCREAMS! Marnie SCREAMS! The rat ducks back
into the shadows, picks up a half-eaten rat carcass
it's been feeding on, and scurries away with it in
Lizzie looks down and notices that in her panic, she
kicked her purse over, sending the BOTTLE OF
SOMNAMBULENE rolling across the floor. She quickly
grabs the bottle and stuffs it back in her purse.
What was that?
TODD has been watching Lizzie from behind the make-
shift bar he's made out of two beer coolers and an
Pills. I saw them. Lizzie has pills!
The others converge on her.
You holding out on us?
What are they, Roofies? They don't
look like Roofies.
It's Somnambulene. Some kind of
(eyes lighting up)
Ketamine? Special K? You've got
You didn't tell me they gave you
Special K. Pass 'em out.
I don't think so. This is pretty
heavy duty stuff.
Beth holds out her hand.
There are side effects. You know,
like headaches... dry mouth...
Beth holds out her hand.
And, um, well... some people who
took them thought... they could
share each others' dreams.
A beat. Then everyone LAUGHS.
You don't have to make shit up. If
you're not gonna give us any, just
I'm not gonna give you any.
Everyone BOOS Lizzie.
THE LIGHTS GO OUT.
(old lady voice)
Alright, who's touching my ass?
Oh. Sorry. I thought you were Beth.
You don't know my ass from a guy's?
We hear a SLAP.
Oh. Sorry. I thought you were Sam.
A SMALL FIREBALL
Erupts, becoming a steady flame that casts an eerie
green glow on Todd's proud smile. He holds a tray
of six glasses filled with a burning cocktail.
(a la Dr. Frankenstein)
It's alive! Alive!
I call it "Flaming Piss"! Watch
your eyebrows, ladies. Sam, turn
the lights back on.
Sam flips the switch and the lights come back on.
Everyone CHEERS. Sam raises his glass.
The others raise their glasses.
Lizzie smiles and downs her drink. The others chug.
Ecch. This tastes terrible. How
much piss did you put in it?
Well, I ran out. So I had to use
beer, tequila, grain alcohol,
And don't forget the secret
Sam smirks and holds up Lizzie's empty bottle of pills.
What did you do?
I spiked the drinks with your...
Sam tries to read the label. He finds it hard to focus.
ZOOM IN on THE LABEL. It reads: "DO NOT MIX WITH
ALCOHOL." The bottle turns slightly, revealing a
skull and crossbones.
You fucking asshole!
She grabs back the Somnambulene bottle.
Jesus, Sam! You don't know when to
quit. You always--
BOOM! The Somnambulene hits Lizzie hard.
We see Sam's face suddenly stretch surrealistically,
along with everything else in the periphery of her
BACK TO SCENE
Lizzie loses her balance and falls back on the couch,
knocking over a can.
Sam's face distorts... his voice warps.
Hey, that was my beer!
BACK TO SCENE
Lizzie rubs her eyes, trying to clear her vision.
He looks back at Lizzie -- her face seems to stretch
(like a record played too slow)
This isn't funny, guys!
Jason tries to stifle a laugh, but fails. He looks
over at Todd.
Todd sees Jason's face start to melt.
(a la Wicked Witch of the West)
He bursts out LAUGHING and looks at Marnie, who is
anxiously poking at her own face.
I can't feel my... my...
BACK TO SCENE
Everyone is hammered, stumbling about and laughing
hysterically. TODD staggers through the cabin and
accidentally crashes into SAM. Sam gives Todd a
drunken shove. Todd laughs and shoves back. Then,
they both end up shoving each other out the door.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING. The lights go out again!
Now only lit by the dim, flickering light of the fire,
all the teens keep laughing. Except for Lizzie.
She looks around the room at her friends. Her mood
darkens as her predicament starts to sink in. And it
certainly doesn't help that she's STONED -- and every-
one else, too.
Why are you laughing?! We're in
Jason, Beth, and Marnie stop and look at Lizzie,
What if Dominic Necros turned off
the lights? What if he followed us
here? We've got to get out of here!
Come on, Lizzie. The drugs are
just making you paranoid.
Just because I'm paranoid doesn't
mean Dominic's not coming to kill us.
(getting freaked out)
Oh, God. We're sitting ducks. What're
we going to do?
We're going to sit back and enjoy
the ride. When we wake up tomorrow,
everything will be just fine.
Before Jason can answer... we hear Todd and Sam's
BLOOD-CURDLING SCREAMS echoing through the woods!
Lizzie and Marnie lose their shit. Especially Lizzie.
Oh, my God. He's here! He's here!
Shit! Where are Sam and Todd?
Uh... out by the generator, fucking
with us? Again.
I'll take a look.
Absolutely not. Don't leave me.
Hmmm. We can all stay here in the
dark, or, uh... you can come with
Lizzie considers this a moment.
Jason grabs the flashlight. He slaps it and a beam
of light comes back on... still weak, but better than
Jason cautiously walks around to the back of the cabin.
Shadows are everywhere. Rain pours down. We hear
the faint rumblings of thunder. Jason cocks his head,
as if he hears something.
He turns around and sees a shadow float behind a tree.
He cautiously approaches the tree, looks behind it
Jason rubs his eyes and shakes his head.
Must be the drugs.
Jason turns away. Just as...
A RAZOR CLAW plunges down, wrapping around his throat.
Jason is spun around and slammed against the wall,
coming face-to-face with... FREDDY KRUEGER!
Jason struggles, but can't break Freddy's grasp.
He cries out...
INT. MAIN CABIN
We hear Jason SCREAM. Lizzie and the girls are horri-
fied. They jump to their feet and start freaking.
Freddy cackles and tightens his grip on Jason's throat
when, suddenly, JASON VOORHEES rushes forward, machete
held high. Jason SCREAMS again. As the machete arcs
toward him, we:
INT. MAIN CABIN
Just in time to see a machete slice through the rotted
out wall. The girls SCREAM. The machete retracts and
we hear Jason SCREAM and SCREAM again.
BOOM! Splinters fly as the wall breaks open. Jason
Lucas is thrown into the room. Freddy Krueger lunges
in after him... only to be followed by Jason Voorhees.
The girls reel backward as Freddy slashes at Jason
Voorhees. Voorhees ducks the blow and slams Freddy
into a table, knocking the boombox down onto the
floor. Jason Voorhees moves in, his machete held high.
He sees the broken boombox and freezes.
You fucked up my boombox, bitch.
Freddy awkwardly lifts himself off the damaged radio.
You shoved me through the wall, bitch.
Jason Lucas gets up, the look of fear on his face is
now replaced with anger. He charges Jason Voorhees,
yanks off the hockey mask and reveals...
Then Jason reaches down and yanks the mask off Freddy
Jesus, guys, you scared the shit out
of me. You think this is funny? You
think Lizzie needs this right now?
Sam and Todd make a stoner's attempt to appear
We were trying to scare you, not
Yeah, we're not totally insensitive.
Just a little. Sorry.
Yeah, you're sorry all right. That's
why you brought those masks.
Hey, I only brought the Freddy.
This Jason stuff, we found up here.
You expect me to believe that?
Come here, I'll prove it.
Sam takes the flashlight and leads everyone outside.
Sam's flashlight beam cuts through the darkness and
pouring rain. They finally reach a ramshackle HUT,
barely visible in an overgrown tangle of bramble and
The door creaks open. We see the teens silhouetted
in the doorway.
I found the mask right here...
The flashlight beam sweeps into the room, illuminating
only an old mattress.
Sam points to a blood-stained hole in the center.
Everyone stares at it in stunned silence.
And the machete was sticking out
of the skull.
Sam reaches into the mattress and pulls out a human
skull, which has a large crack right down the middle.
Lizzie SCREAMS and backs away.
Hey, wait a minute. You don't think...
I remember someone telling me Friday
the 13th was based on a true story.
(spooked, but excited)
Maybe we've stumbled on the very
summer camp where Jason Voorhees
actually mutilated all those teen-
That's enough, Sam.
Here? It happened here?!
But if it did, that means Lizzie's
dream... has come true.
He notices that Lizzie is starting to come unglued.
He quickly tries to backpedal.
But... um... but that's okay...
because Jason's here to protect you
Sam puts the hockey mask on Jason and spins him
around to face Lizzie.
Give me a break.
She storms out of the hut. Jason pushes the mask
up, glares at Sam, and follows after her.
(calling after them)
It's just one of Sam's jokes. Just
trying to be funny. It's not even
a real skull.
Yes, it is. And it's not mine.
Sam tosses the skull to Todd, who fumbles the catch.
The skull drops to the ground and shatters. A gob
of maggots fly out all over Marnie's feet. She
SCREAMS. Beth SCREAMS. Todd SCREAMS.
Marnie and Beth tear out of the hut. Todd and Sam
follow close behind.
Jason slides the hockey mask up on top of his head
and moves up behind Lizzie.
Come on, Lizzie. Why don't we go
He puts a hand on Lizzie's shoulder. She refuses
to turn around.
They're just having fun... you know,
trying to cheer you up--
Marnie and Beth race by screaming their heads off,
followed by Sam and Todd. All four teens run back
into the cabin, scrambling through the hole in the
--in their own fucked-up way.
She nervously cracks open a beer and takes a sip
to try to steady her nerves.
You have no idea what I've been
That guard. He died because of me.
No, he died protecting you. He
died doing his job. It sucks, but
it's not your fault.
Lizzie takes a long swig of beer.
Look, I never told you this -- his
gun was right in front of me. I
could have grabbed it, killed Dominic
Necros, and this would all be over.
But I didn't. I just stood there.
Jason doesn't know what to say, but he desperately
wants to comfort her.
Lizzie, I'm so sorry. I didn't know...
As he leans in to hug her, the hockey mask accidentally
SLIPS BACK DOWN over his face.
Lizzie gives in, turns to hug him, and sees... Jason
wearing the hockey mask just as another blast of
Somnambulene hits her hard.
Her vision distorts. The hockey mask warps. The
image is terrifying. Lizzie SCREAMS. Her beer goes
flying as she tears away from Jason and stumbles out
into the rainy night, obviously disoriented.
Jason picks up Lizzie's beer, takes a long swig,
and chases after her.
EXT. LAKE - NIGHT
Lizzie runs along the wooden walkway linking the rows
Jason follows. As he runs by a window, he is taken
by surprise by his own reflection and is hit with
another blast of Somnambulene.
His hockey-faced mask seems to jump out at him.
BACK TO SCENE
Propelled backwards by the shock of his hallucinatory
vision, Jason SLIPS AND FALLS and goes face down into
the mud. At first, he just lies there. Then he
starts LAUGHING his ass off.
INT. MAIN CABIN
Sam, Todd, Beth, and Marnie are pacing the cabin,
trying to calm down. Beth and Marnie fall back on
a couch, each pounding down another can of liquid
courage. Marnie closes her eyes and rests her head
on Beth's shoulder.
What do we do now?
I don't know.
You wanna make out?
Marnie opens her eyes and looks at Beth just as she's
hit with another blast of Somnambulene.
Beth puckers her lips. They seem to swell into big,
BACK TO SCENE
They both burst out LAUGHING.
He's screwing around with his boombox, scanning through
the dial trying to tune in some music. We hear mostly
static, punctuated by occasional snippets of Mexican
dance music and baseball games. He turns to Sam, who
dances in place to the static.
You're buying me a new radio.
(it's finally off his chest)
There, I said it.
Let me see that.
Sam picks up the radio, examines it for a moment,
then shakes it vigorously. A RADIO ANNOUNCER'S VOICE
cuts through the static. Sam flashes Todd a cocky
RADIO ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
...a country-wide manhunt is on for
suspected serial killer Dominic
Shh! Turn it up!
RADIO ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
...escaped early this morning while
being transferred to FBI custody,
killing two sheriff's deputies and
Sam freaks out, dropping the radio to the floor,
where it crashes into pieces. Everyone freezes in
shock. It can't be true! They try without much
luck to sober up.
Holy Mother of God! Lizzie was right!
Dominic is on his way up here. He's
going to kill us. All of us. You
guys first, then me. I know it.
We gotta get out of here. I'll get
Lizzie and Jason.
Beth stands on wobbly legs and stumbles for the door.
EXT. LAKE/INT. MAIN CABIN - INTERCUT
LIZZIE staggers through the rain alongside the lake.
The Somnambulene appears to be hitting her pretty

Reaches out for the door jamb for support, but misses
it and falls down on the floor.
THE TWO GIRLS
PASS OUT at the same time.
EXT. LAKE - NIGHT
She opens her eyes. Her vision is fuzzy as she still
suffers the effects of the Somnambulene. A figure
suddenly comes into focus...
JASON VOORHEES is staring down at her through his
hockey mask! The mask distorts grotesquely. Lizzie
SCREAMS. Jason realizes that he is still wearing
the hockey mask and takes it off.
You scared the shit out of me!
You passed out. Are you okay?
I'd feel a lot better if you got
rid of that goddamn mask.
I'm sorry, Lizzie. I fucked up.
I'm fucked up. Both.
Yeah, I'm sorry, too. I'm sorry I
got attacked, I'm sorry I have
nightmares, I'm sorry I jump ten
feet in the air every time you kiss
me on the neck.
(fighting back angry tears)
And I'm sorry... but right now I
need a boyfriend I can count on...
someone who makes me feel safe.
You can count on me, Lizzie, I
Thunder and lightning! Then, an ominous voice.
Cross your heart and hope to die?
Jumps out. He swings his razor glove at Lizzie, but
Jason steps in to protect her and takes a DEEP BLOW
to the ribcage. Blood sprays everywhere!
Dominic punches right through Jason's chest and yanks
out his HEART. He holds it aloft. Lizzie cries out
in anguish as Jason falls foward, DEAD before he hits
Dominic wheels on Lizzie.
Now it's your turn.
Just before Dominic lashes out, a woman's voice rages--
WOMAN'S VOICE (O.C.)
I don't think so!
Dominic turns around just in time to see...
HURLING a rock right at him. Dominic's face EXPLODES
with blood! Jason's heart shoots from his grip and
arcs through the air, spinning towards the lake.
EXT. BENEATH THE SURFACE OF THE LAKE
In slow motion -- back-lit by a full moon -- Jason's
heart breaks through the surface of the water and
spirals downward. As it passes by camera, we see
that it is still beating.
Dominic struggles to his feet. He spits a mouthful
of blood at Lizzie and Beth, who stand over Jason's
lifeless body in shock and horror.
The girls TAKE OFF, running in opposite directions --
Beth for the cabin, Lizzie towards an old, rickety
EXT. BENEATH THE SURFACE OF THE LAKE
Jason's HEART spins deeper and deeper into the lake.
It comes to rest between the rotted-out rib cage of
a tremendous skeleton. The camera tracks along the
rib cage, finally revealing a particularly malformed
skull wearing a hockey mask.
Rotted flesh begins to regenerate as the heart keeps
a steady, even pump.
Thunder and Lightning! The storm escalates to a
new level. Dominic advances on Lizzie, backing her
out onto the dock. Lizzie is SOBBING.
Jason can't help you, Lizzie. It's
just you and me now.
And one of us is going to die.
He grabs her.
This can't be happening.
Why are you so surprised? Freddy
controls everything. He brought you
here. He brought me here. It's just
like your nightmare, isn't it?
Dominic draws his razor glove back for the death blow.
Just then, the lake is hit by a huge bolt of lightning,
causing a bomb-blasting effect.
JASON VOORHEES rises from the lake. This isn't some
teenager wearing a hockey mask and holding a machete.
And it doesn't quite seem to be the Jason we remember
from earlier movies. This Jason is much, much bigger
-- 350 pounds of twisted, rotted flesh packed on his
mythically proportioned gargantuan frame. His hockey
mask is now warped and melted down onto his deformed
skull, caused by years of soaking at the bottom of
the lake. Half of the paint has washed away, leaving
the mask looking like a cloudy, semi-translucent
membrane which barely spares us the horror of having
to witness the hideous face of the monster lurking
Just as he starts to bring the claw down on Lizzie,
a GIANT HAND grabs him by the back of the neck. He
is lifted off the ground, feet dangling helplessly,
his body whipped around, until he finds himself face-
JASON VOORHEES. Jason raises his machete and ROARS.
Dominic SCREAMS! The machete is about to strike home
when Jason sees...
Lying dead in the mud. Voorhees stares in Lucas'
wide and lifeless eyes. He goes berserk and throws
Necros down hard. He swings his machete wildly.
Necros rolls out of the way and the big blade hacks
into the dock. Splinters fly. Necros manages to
scramble for the woods.
Lizzie looks for an escape, but the only way out is
past Jason Voorhees. He turns to look at her. Their
eyes meet for one chilling moment. Lizzie SCREAMS.
Jason looks down at his monstrous reflection in the
surface of the lake, then to the dead body lying on
the ground. He brandishes his machete up to the
heavens and lets loose an earth-shaking ROAR!
Lizzie takes off through the woods, terrified.
EXT. MAIN CABIN
Beth frantically runs to the cabin door -- but it's
locked. She yanks, tugs, pulls, and pounds.
C'mon, open the door! It's me!
Open the goddamn door!
JUMP CUT TO:
INT. MAIN CABIN - AT THE SAME EXACT MOMENT
WE SEE Beth lying on the floor SCREAMING and flailing
in her sleep. Todd, Sam, and Marnie are huddled
around her, watching helplessly.
Open the goddamn door!
Beth! Beth! C'mon, Beth! Come out
Turn her over so she doesn't choke
on her vomit.
She's not gonna Hendrix. She's just
having a nightmare.
I've never seen Beth like this
before... and she does a lot of
Sam starts shaking her. Then he slaps his girlfriend
on the face. Beth's eyes pop open. She's panting
Lizzie! Where's Lizzie?! We've
gotta-- what, but-- how did I get
Sam holds Beth tight, cradling her head in his lap.
You never left. It's okay. You were
having a nightmare.
Sam, Todd, and Marnie are looking down at her with
concern. Their faces WARP as the Somnambulene
You went to warn Lizzie about
Dominic. But you passed out before
you got to the door.
Her vision snaps back to normal.
BACK TO SCENE
You never could hold your Flaming
But I... How...
Beth looks around and realizes she's lying on the
cabin floor. At first she looks completely disori-
ented. Then she slowly starts to LAUGH.
Whoa. That's so fucked up.
THE CABIN DOOR
BURSTS open. LIZZIE runs in, gasping for breath, eyes
wide with terror. Marnie runs to her.
Lizzie, we've got to get out of
here! Dominic escaped.
(looking out the doorway)
He's dead. Dominic killed him!
Sam jumps to his feet, letting Beth's head fall back
onto the floor.
He ripped out Jason's heart and
then he tried to kill me. I can't
take this anymore!
Stay calm. Stay calm! STAY--
Marnie, too, breaks down and starts WAILING.
We've gotta get out of here.
How? Dominic's right outside.
Shit, you're right!
Sam drags a chair over to the front door and barri-
Let's go. Everything that's not
Sam and Todd carry a sofa to the front door while
Marnie still sits on it.
How far away is he, Lizzie?
He's by the lake. That's where I
got away... and only because--
I smashed him in the face with a
Sam, Todd, and Marnie forget their panic for a moment
and turn to Beth, confused.
What are you talking about? You
never left the cabin.
No, she was there with me. She saved
They turn to Lizzie, even more confused.
No, she was here with us... having
It wasn't a nightmare! It was real.
Beth hit him with the rock, then--
Then Jason's heart went flying in
I got cornered on a dock, and then...
Lizzie gets lost in thought.
What, Lizzie, what?
Thunder and lightning.
Jason Voorhees came out of the lake.
Lizzie starts crying. She nods her head. Sam laughs.
Cool it, Sam.
Jason Voorhees is just a movie
character. He isn't real. You know
that. You must have blacked out and
had a nightmare -- just like Beth.
But... no... we couldn't both have
the same nightmare. Unless...
Lizzie and Beth look at each other, unnerved. There
could be only one explanation...
Oh, my God. We shared a dream.
I thought you made up all that side
effect shit up, you know, to scare
Lizzie shakes her head. Sam picks up the empty bottle
of Somnambulene and stares at it in wonder.
It really works? Awesome!
Sam grabs another beer and takes a celebratory chug.
Wait a minute... If it was all a
dream, that means... Dominic's
still in jail!
Lizzie breaks into a relieved smile.
And Jason's still alive!
Lizzie hugs Marnie. Todd, Sam, and Beth exchange
worried looks. Should we tell her? Finally, Beth
walks over to Lizzie and puts her hand on her
(walking on eggshells)
Lizzie, I've got some bad news. I
don't want you to freak out...
But you're gonna.
What is it?
Dominic really did escape from jail.
What?! Are you sure?
Dead sure. We never went to sleep.
We heard it on the radio.
Before Sam busted it.
Would you stop it with the fucking
radio already? I said I'd buy you
a new one.
No, you didn't. I said you'd buy
me a new one.
(losing her shit)
There's a serial killer on the loose
and he's got a hard-on for Lizzie.
And we're in the middle of nowhere...
no phones, no police, no one to
hear us scream...
(also losing her shit)
Why would you say that?!
WE'VE GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE!
Lizzie and Marnie continue freaking. Beth takes
charge, pulling Sam and Todd over to the door.
Okay. Here's what we do.
She starts single-handedly pushing the couch away
from the door.
You go find Jason. He's probably
passed out somewhere. We'll pack
up here and meet you at the van.
Beth opens the door. Sam sees the downpour and
Jesus, it's really coming down out
there. How 'bout we pack, you go
Just take your "umbrella", asshole.
BETH grabs the Freddy mask and fedora and flings them
at Sam. He puts them on and follows Todd outside.
EXT. MAIN CABIN
Todd and Sam are about to step out into the rain
when Todd stops short.
You don't really think Dominic
will find us up here, do you?
Through the mask, Sam's eyes scan the campground.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING. Sam turns back to Todd, who
gives him the dancing eyebrows.
Well, if he does... I hope he drinks
lite beer, 'cause that's all we got
Sam reaches into a cooler set out on the porch and
pulls out a six-pack. He hands a beer to Todd and
cracks one open for himself. They chug their beers,
crush their cans on their heads, and step out into
EXT. LAKE - LATER
The alcohol has kicked in the Somnambulne again --
FULL FORCE. Sam and Todd's vision is distorted,
their speech slurred. They stumble through the
darkness, LAUGHING their asses off.
His voice echoes into the woods. Sam cracks open
another beer. Todd smacks him on the shoulder.
Sam awkwardly turns.
Todd's face twists.
Take it easy, man. You gotta drive.
BACK TO SCENE
Sam bursts out laughing.
Uh-uh. Not me. Too drunk.
Sam tosses his car keys to Todd.
The keys fly through the air, making impossible,
zig-zagging turns... due to the effects of the

Todd fumbles the catch. Sam LAUGHS, cracks open
another beer, and hands it to Todd.
Well, not me. I'm wasted.
Yeah? I'm trashed.
(with great difficulty)
(at a loss)
You win. I'll drive.
Todd bends down and picks up the keys.
Screw it, let's make Jason drive.
You and me will crash in the back
of the van and dream-share at two-
on-one with Marnie.
Sam puts a hand up for a high-five. Todd leaves
You want to nail my girlfriend?
With me watching?
Just then, Sam notices something.
Sam points to a hockey mask-wearing figure off in
Did he see us?
I don't think so. Let's scare the
shit out of him.
Sam and Todd nod at each other and smile.
CLOSE ON JASON
This isn't Jason Lucas. It's Jason Voorhees. As
we PAN down his huge, grotesque body we see him
dropping the lifeless body of Jason Lucas into the
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!
TODD AND SAM
Creep up on Jason, oblivious.
You got a plan?
I don't know... jump out, say "boo"?
(a la "Bad Sequel Freddy")
Freddy or not, here I come...
Sam does a lame Freddy CACKLE and gives Todd the
thumbs-up with a plastic razor claw.
INT. MAIN CABIN
Lights flicker and begin to dim as the generator
continues its uneven pulse of electricity. Beth and
Marnie are packing as fast as they can. Lizzie is
staring off into space.
What's taking them so long?
Something's wrong. I can feel it.
Would you stop saying things like
that! You're scaring me.
We're gonna die here.
Come on, Lizzie, just keep it
together a little longer. Okay?
Lizzie finally turns to Marnie and Beth.
The lights go out. Marnie SCREAMS. A shadowy form
glides unnoticed into the cabin through the shattered
Todd staggers through a tangle of trees, completely
oblivious to the fact that each step brings him
closer to the greatest horror he's ever known--
The real Jason Voorhees.
Todd takes a final sip of beer and tosses the can
into the bushes. Todd pushes aside some branches.
He is now only a few yards away.
Hey, man, quit putzing around, we
The grotesque features of Jason Voorhees seem to be
merely a vision-warping effect of the Somnambulene.
BACK TO SCENE
We just heard on the radio that
Dominic broke out of jail. Lizzie's
pretty freaked out. So we figured
we'd better take the party somewhere
Jason just stands there, his breathing slow and heavy.
It sounds wet and disgusting. Drool pours from beneath
the hockey mask.
Oh, and by the way, you're driving.
Me and Sam are too... inebriated.
A clueless Todd pulls a can of beer from his baggy
pants and shakes it. Jason's hand tightens around
What the hell, one more wouldn't
Todd pops the top.
SUDS SHOOT all over Jason.
WHOOSH! Jason swings his machete!
Todd barely avoids the blade.
Hey, watch it, dickhead!
Todd bounces the empty beer can off of Jason's chest.
Jason rears back to take another swing...
SAM jumps in front of him, wearing the Freddy mask.
Sam menaces Jason with his razor glove, scraping the
plastic claws together and CACKLING.
The eyes behind the hockey mask are ablaze with fury.
We can almost make out his grotesque features contort-
ing behind the translucent plastic.
JASON GOES BERSERK!
He lashes out at Sam with his machete. Sam looks
down and sees blood pouring from a cut across his
Sam is frozen in shock. Todd grabs him and tries to
pull him away. They take a few steps backwards and...
SAM TRIPS and falls to the ground. He ends up face
to face with his dead buddy Jason Lucas. He SCREAMS
and scrambles to his feet.
Todd and Sam run for their lives! Jason follows!
They take off into the woods, fighting their way
through the densely packed trees. Jason relentlessly
STALKS after them, his machete making easy work
of everything in his path. CHOP! CHOP! CHOP!
Todd and Sam tear through a thicket of thorny branches
and find themselves at the edge of a--
The ground beneath their feet gives way. They tumble
down, finally coming to a jarring stop in a small
stream. Todd helps a dazed Sam to his feet. They
look up at the top of the embankment. Jason is
glaring down at them.
Think you can make it back to the
Sam clutches his chest and gasps for breath through
the air-holes in his Freddy mask. He nods. They
tear off running through the woods.
The cabin is finally in sight. Todd leaps over a
Sam looks over his shoulder to see if they're being
followed and TRIPS over the tree.
Todd doubles back to help and sees...
Jason STALKING towards them.
He vaults the tree and lands between Sam and Todd.
Jason faces Todd, shoves him out of the way, and
turns to "Freddy Krueger".
Sam cowers and tries to hide under the fallen tree.
Jason reaches down and grabs him. He lifts Sam off
the ground, tossing him high into the air. He swings
his machete, cutting right through Sam's neck. The
body drops down to the ground as the head continues
flying upward. When the head descends, Jason thrusts
out his arms and catches it in mid-flight.
Todd backs up, his mouth hanging wide open in
Jason stares at the severed "Freddy" head,
his kill. Gravity begins pulling on Sam's head,
loosening it from the rubber mask. His face slowly
appears, squeezing out of the mask's neck hole.
Jason cocks his head to the side, confused.
Sam's head finally pulls free from the rubber -- it
falls heavily into the mud. SPLAT!
Jason is left holding the empty Freddy mask. He looks
down at Sam's decapitated head and delivers a BLOOD-
CURDLING ROAR. He rips the Freddy mask in two and
kicks Sam's head far into the woods.
Jason stalks off into the darkness, falling a tree
with his machete. PAN over to see--
Still standing there with his mouth hanging open.
He picks up the torn Freddy mask.
A SMILE slowly creeps across his face. Then he begins
to LAUGH. An extremely strange reaction indeed.
INT. MAIN CABIN
Lizzie stands in the middle of the darkened room,
paralyzed by fear. Marnie hyperventilates. Beth
throws more wood into the fireplace.
No big deal. It's just the generator,
right? Everything's fine.
I thought I heard someone scream.
That was you.
I heard it, too.
(starting to lose it)
Stop it. Both of you.
You're scared and you're making

you more scared and now... I'm
DOMINIC NECROS moves out of the shadows.
You should be.
Lizzie, Marnie, and Beth SCREAM. Beth picks up a
fireplace poker and swings it at Dominic. With little
effort, he grabs the poker and tugs it violently,
sending Beth flying head-first into a wall. She
crumples to the floor, blood trickling down her fore-
Dominic touches the bloody gash on his own head and
smiles. He advances on Lizzie.
Please... don't kill me.
Dominic puts a single razor claw at the nape of
Lizzie's neck. He slowly and deliberately traces it
up her throat and under her chin, lifting her head so
she stares directly into his eyes.
Kill you? I'm not going to kill you.
He pulls the razor away from her chin. Then he
leans in, his face pressed against hers, his voice
I had my chance. Now it's someone
He pulls out a large syringe loaded with an iridescent
green liquid -- Somnambulene.
You're about to take a trip. A Som-
nambulene trip. To meet my master.
The cabin door CRASHES open. More THUNDER and
LIGHTNING! In walks...
He's covered with blood and mud and he's LAUGHING his
ass off. Then he notices that Dominic has Lizzie
cornered... and LAUGHS even louder.
Dominic, so glad you could make
it. We weren't sure if you'd be
able to find us.
Dominic just stares at him.
You know, we're all pretty beat,
and I'm sure you are too, so why
don't we just do the whole murder
thing in the morning?
Marnie is really freaking out now.
Stop it, Todd! He'll kill you!
Who, this guy? I wouldn't worry
about it. Oh, mmm, Lizzie? I just
bumped into your boyfriend. You were
right. He's dead. Someone tore out
Oh, my God! No!
Now, I'm not pointing any fingers,
I killed him and I'll kill you.
Sure you will. Hold that thought.
He looks down at Beth, who's still on the floor
holding her bloody head.
Beth, I'm glad you're sitting down.
Uh... how do I put this...
(matter of fact)
Sam just got his head cut off by
Her eyes well up, she tries to choke back tears.
Todd, what are you doing?!
I'll tell you what I'm doing... I'm
sleeping. Right now. We all are.
Don't you get it, Lizzie? We passed
out when we took the Somnambulene
and we've been sharing a dream ever
since! I mean, how else can you
explain Dominic finding us?
Freddy sent me.
(to the others)
All a dream.
Dominic starts advancing on Todd, deliberately
exaggerating his body motions in a dreamlike fashion.
That's right. None of this is really
happening. This is all a dream.
(then, a low growl)
Tell that to Lizzie's doctor, who's
lying all over a hospital floor
He holds up the syringe and twirls it hypnotically,
squirting out glowing green fluid.
Hey, Somnambulene! That is some

Now, Dominic, did you bring enough
Don't worry. You'll get your chance
to meet Freddy Krueger.
Ooooo, you're going to send me to
"Nightmare World"? No! You can't

You know why? 'Cause it doesn't
exist. And neither does Freddy
Todd stretches the torn Freddy mask over his face
and waggles his tongue at Dominic.
Dominic grabs Todd by the throat, slams him against
a wall, and prepares to gut him with his razor claw.
BOOM! The front door is blown out of its frame,
Lizzie SCREAMS. Beth and Marnie SCREAM. Dominic
reels backwards, releasing his hold on Todd.
Hey, everybody, look who's here!
It's Jason Voorhees!
Todd LAUGHS again and starts to walk towards Jason.
Todd, stay back!
Why? He's not so tough. I've had
Todd reaches up and snatches off Jason's hockey mask.
Everyone SCREAMS, forced to witness the gigantic
malformed head housing the severely retarded and
extremely tormented lake-drenched brain of the machete
wielding maniac. A writhing mass of worms, leeches,
and snakes slithers and squirms in and out of his
Jason's face contorts, squeezing out a knot of white
worms, as he bellows forth a HELLISH ROAR!
Todd is finally taken over the edge. He's not sure
whether this is a dream or not. All he knows is it
scares the living shit out of him!
He lets go of the hockey mask. It rockets back toward
Jason's face, propelled by its elastic band, and--
Pieces of the old mask shatter away on impact, leaving
Jason's most grotesque features exposed. Jason ROARS
again and again.
He SWINGS at Todd. Todd ducks, exposing Dominic
behind him. The edge of Jason's machete just misses
Jason raises his machete over his head with both arms.
Before he can bring it down on Dominic's skull,
Dominic lunges, driving his razor claws deep into
Jason's chest, trying to rip out his heart.
Jason HOWLS and puts a bone crushing squeeze on
Dominic's arm. With a mighty yank, he rips the razor
claw out of his chest.
Jason lifts up Dominic high off the ground by his
neck and hauls back his machete for the kill!
Dominic panics and DRIVES the huge SYRINGE full of
Somnambulene into Jason with such force, the needle
and half the casing get buried in Jason's thickly
muscled trunk of a neck.
Dominic pushes the plunger down hard!
Jason BELLOWS and swings Dominic around the room like
a rag doll while trying to tear the syringe from his
Dominic goes flying right into MARNIE and they both
go crashing into the wall. Dominic madly scrambles
out of the cabin.
Jason wreaks havoc, stumbling around the room,
disoriented by the Somnambulene. With a burst of
pure adrenaline, he rips the syringe from his neck
and, in a powerful arc, drives the hypo deep into...
Lizzie flies backwards, slamming into the wall. She
looks down in horror at the needle sticking out of
her and SCREAMS, struggling to remove the syringe.
But she can't. She's already suffering from a massive
dose of the drug.
No, no, no, I can't.
Hold still. Hold still!
Beth yanks out the needle. Lizzie cries out.
I don't want to share a dream
I can't... I can't...
In a massive, nauseating blast of Somnambulene,
Lizzie sees Jason lurch forward, beginning to lose
consciousness. His grotesque features spin like
water going down a drain.
BACK TO SCENE
Reaches out to the wall for support by misses and
falls to the floor.
Loses his footing. He, too, falls to the floor.
BOOM! His gargantuan body just misses Lizzie.
LIZZIE AND JASON
Are lying side by side. Head to head. They both
PASS OUT at the same time.
The camera SPIRALS out of the darkness of Lizzie's
screaming mouth. We are suddenly blinded by intense
As the scene begins to coalesce, we realize we are
still in the cabin. Only now, it is clean and new...
we are clearly in THE PAST.
LIZZIE AND JASON are still on the floor. Everyone
else is gone.
Lizzie's screaming fades, and is replaced by the
ominous sound of Jason's BEATING HEART.
Lizzie's eyes snap open. As she bolts to her feet
and looks down at Jason -- in a Somnambulene-induced
blur of plastic reality -- she can actually see
Jason's massive heart POUNDING against his heaving
Lizzie REELS... the warping, twisting, nauseating
effect is almost too much to bear.
We realize we are in...
Outside the cabin, we hear the haunting, sing-song
voices of CHILDREN.
One, two, Freddy's comin' for you.
Three, four, better lock your door...
Suddenly, Jason begins to WAIL...
His body CONVULSES...
He begins to SHRINK!
With each beat of his heart Jason becomes smaller...
younger... until, finally, he is a LITTLE BOY,

The children's singing suddenly becomes SCREAMING!
Lizzie panics and dashes into a dark closet.
THE FRONT DOOR bursts open.
CHILDREN race in -- not screaming in horror, but
screaming in delight.
They tease and poke Jason. He is startled awake.
Suddenly, a DEEPER VOICE permeates the nightmare.
One, two, Freddy's coming for you!
Runs into the cabin. Not the Freddy we know. This
is TEENAGE FREDDY. No burn scars. No fedora. No
razor claws. Just a brand new red and green striped
FREDDY pinches and grabs the children playfully,
chasing them back out the cabin door. Then he turns
back to Jason.
Looking through the eye-holes of the hockey mask, it's
almost as if we become Jason. His breathing is quick
His heart races. In an instant, Freddy's demeanor
changes, becoming more menacing.
Jason, there you are!
Jason's heartbeat becomes LOUDER... FASTER... becoming
the haunting, percussive score underneath an ever-
quickening series of NIGHTMARISH SURREAL IMAGES:
Jason RUNS into a closet.
The door SLAMS SHUT
Lizzie shrinks back into the shadows.
A RAZOR CLAW comes bursting through the door!
Freddy's teenage face pushes into the darkness of

He yanks Jason out of the water.

Children swim, oblivious, in the distance.
Jason suddenly pulls free of Freddy's grasp, and
lashes out with his machete, cutting Freddy again.
Freddy explodes in an insane rage. He SHOVES Jason
LIZZIE watches, frozen in utter terror. She tries
to scream. At first, there is no sound. Then,
suddenly, her voice BREAKS THROUGH the nightmare.
Turns and sees her. As their eyes meet...
A HUGE BOLT OF LIGHTNING
Hits Jason's machete. Jason stops struggling and
disappears into the murky depths. In a strange
nightmarish jump-cutting device -- the scene suddenly
is pitched into...
THE BLACKEST OF NIGHTS
The wind howls.
You got into little Jason's dreams.
You found out our secret.
ANOTHER BOLT OF LIGHTNING RIPS INTO THE LAKE
Freddy lifts Jason out of the water again. Only now
Jason is back to full size. Jason takes one last
swing at Freddy. Freddy laughs and shoves Jason
back into the lake.
Poor Jason. Stumbling around the
lake all these years... The mind-
less sleepwalker... killing victim
after victim. Every time he looks
at them, he sees only me.
Lizzie remains immobilized by terror.
He was my first, you know. But
there have been so many more.
Lizzie starts to retreat as Freddy's face becomes
And you're next!
Freddy CACKLES maniacally and races supernaturally
forward, raising his razor claw to strike...

INT. MAIN CABIN - NIGHT
Lizzie wakes up SCREAMING as Beth shakes her. Marnie
and Todd are kneeling over her. Todd's face is
creased with worry. Marnie is losing it. Lizzie
opens her eyes.
Marnie's face comes into focus, distorting ever so
(panicking, near tears)
That's it... Wake up... Please don't
be mental. Please!
BACK TO SCENE
I think she's okay. Let's try to
move her now.
Lizzie tries to sit up. She's totally disoriented.
She rubs her eyes, trying to clear her vision.
The faces around her warp as the effects of the
Somnambulene wear off.
Okay, that's good. Can you stand,
Lizzie? We've gotta get out of
here. We've gotta get to the van.
BACK TO SCENE
Todd tosses Marnie the keys.
Fuck it, I'll carry her.
Todd bends down and lifts Lizzie. As he turns to go,
Lying on the floor. He struggles violently, drowning
in his nightmare. Lake water bubbles and gushes out
of his mouth by the gallon.
No, wait! He's drowning!
Good, let him!
Todd starts for the door again. Lizzie struggles in
We've got to wake him up!
Are you crazy? If he wakes up, he'll
kill us all!
Todd tries to wrestle Lizzie out the door. But Lizzie
can't let Jason die. Not after what she's seen.
It's not his fault!
Lizzie tears free from Todd and rushes to Jason. She
drops down to her knees and pounds on his massive
WAKE UP! WAKE UP!
Her friends try desperately to pull her off.
Jason wakes, spitting and roaring. A look of utter
anguish stretching over his grotesque features. In
a split second, he's up on his feet, mad as hell.
Everyone scatters, terrified, throughout the room.
"It's not his fault! Wake him up!"
Great fucking idea, Lizzie!
Jason wheels on Todd.
Todd's frightened face MORPHS into Freddy Krueger's.
You should have let him die!
(voice changing into Freddy's)
You should have let him die!
BACK TO SCENE
Jason lunges at Todd, SHOVES him against the wall,
and brings up his machete. Todd raises his hands
to protect himself from the blow.
Jason still sees Todd as Freddy. Suddenly, Todd's
raised hand MORPHS into Freddy's razor claw.
BACK TO SCENE
Jason swings his machete, carving a violent arc
through the air and right through Todd's torso. His
upper body spins end-over-end towards Marnie.
Oh, my God! Todd, no! No!!!
Jason wheels on her.
Now Marnie changes into Freddy Krueger. Her face
MORPHS and her VOICE ALTERS so that her hysterical
CRIES become an insane CACKLE.
BACK TO SCENE
Jason roars and rages. He charges at her, the blood-
drenched machete raised, ready to strike.
LIZZIE steps between them.
Amazingly, Jason does. Lizzie continues talking,
trying to remain calm even though her voice is
quavering with fear.
Stop. You don't want to kill us.
You want to kill Freddy Krueger.
I know what he did to you.
Jason stares at Lizzie. For a moment, it seems she's
getting through to him.
Everywhere you look you see him.
In the background, Lizzie sees...
BETH snatching up a heavy chunk of firewood.
Jason turns and sees Beth.
Beth's face MORPHS into Freddy's. "Freddy"
as he sends the wood sailing through the air, right
BACK TO SCENE
The huge chunk of firewood hits Jason hard. He
ROARS -- his rage returns even fiercer than before.
He hoists a rusted out Coke machine and, with inhuman
strength, HURLS it across the room at Beth. Beth
throws herself to the floor and manages to avoid a
deadly collision. The soda machine smashes a hole
through the cabin wall.
Jason swings his machete at Beth's head. She ducks
just in time, and the blade connects with the fire-
place. Sparks fly! Hunks of stone explode on impact!
Lizzie, Marnie, and Beth tear out of the cabin as
Jason rages, destroying everything in his path.
EXT. MAIN CABIN
Beth, Marnie, and Lizzie run through the pounding
rain towards the Carpet City van.
Lizzie SLIPS in the mud. Beth grabs her arm and
DRAGS her the rest of the way to the van.
Marnie makes it to the driver's door. Lizzie and
Beth get to the passenger side. They all try their
doors... they're locked.
Open the door! Move it!
Fuck, fuck, fuck...
Marnie fumbles in her pockets and pulls out the keys,
her hands trembling with fear.

Flies off its hinges and Jason Voorhees bursts
Scared to death, drops the keys in the mud. She
bends down and searches frantically as...
Stalks toward them, machete raised high.
Finds the keys. She fumbles with the door lock. She
can't get the key to fit! She looks down at the key
ring and notices a BUTTON on the alarm remote. She
CHUNK. CHUNK. CHUNK.
The doors unlock electronically.
Everyone scrambles into the van. Marnie jams a key
into the ignition.
The van doesn't start.
Oh, no... no... please... start!
She tries again. Still, the engine doesn't turn
over. Marnie turns to the girls.
I can't. It won't--
Jason's monstrous hand smashes through the driver's
side window and clamps around Marnie's neck.
Marnie barely manages to choke out a scream before
being yanked out of the window.
Lizzie and Beth SCREAM.
Slams Marnie up against the side of the van with a
sickening thud and raises his machete...
It's the last sound Marnie will ever hear.
INSIDE THE VAN
Beth crouches, terrified, in back. Suddenly, Jason's
machete PIERCES through the side of the van. It
stops just inches from Beth's face... dripping
Lizzie jumps in the driver's seat, turns the ignition...
THE VAN STARTS.
Lizzie FLOORS IT. But the van doesn't move.
The tires spin impotently in place, splashing a huge
rooster-tail of mud and water skyward.
JASON withdraws his machete from Marnie and the van.
Marnie's body falls to the ground. The tires
suddenly catch dry earth, sending the van careening
Lizzie wrestles with the steering wheel to keep
the van on the road. Beth clutches onto the back
of the driver's seat, hanging on for dear life.
But Lizzie is too hysterical. She's having a hard
time controlling the van.
Beth scrambles up to the passenger seat and fights
Lizzie to get control of the steering wheel.
The van swerves off the road and side-swipes a tree.
The girls SCREAM. Lizzie jerks the wheel away from
Beth. The van caroms wildly back onto the road.
Rain pounds the windshield. Lizzie can just make
out the main gate of the camp and the road beyond it.
Just get us the fuck away from here!
Changes as a look of realization overtakes her. Tears
well up in her eyes. She clenches the steering wheel.
Her knuckles whiten. Unexpectedly, she slams on the
Fishtails violently on the water-slicked road, until
it SCREECHES to a halt.
What the hell are you doing? We're
almost out of here. We're almost
We'll never be safe... not as long
as Freddy's alive.
Lizzie, please, can we talk about
A razor claw suddenly erupts from Beth's chest!
Blood flies all over the windshield.
Lizzie turns and sees Dominic Necros smiling back
at her. He has impaled Beth right through the
back of her seat! He waves at Lizzie with his
bloody razor claw.
Dominic removes his arm from Beth's chest -- she
slumps against the dashboard, dead. Before Lizzie
can even scream, he presses a syringe filled with
Somnambulene up against her neck.
You're right, Lizzie. You can't
escape. Freddy will always be there.
He lives inside your head.
Dominic slowly scratches Lizzie's scalp with his
Come to him!
In your dreams.
Lizzie stomps down on the accelerator. The van shoots
forward. Dominic is knocked off balance. He reaches
out to stop himself from falling and grabs Lizzie's
hair, yanking her head back.
Dominic looks out the windshield and realizes Lizzie
has aimed the van straight for a huge tree.
The van CRASHES into the TREE.
The AIRBAG inflates around Lizzie.
DOMINIC goes flying through the windshield in a
shower of exploding glass.
Lizzie sits, numb with shock, looking at the
destruction around her.
Lizzie tries to open her door. It's stuck. She RAMS
it with her shoulder and it flies open, sending her
falling to the ground.
With great effort, Lizzie struggles to her feet and
stands on unsteady legs.
Everything is silent. Lizzie looks around the cold,
dark woods, choking back her tears. She shudders.
She sees Dominic lying on the road in a lifeless
heap. Debris from the wrecked van is strewn about
all around him. Lizzie moves closer to see if he
is truly dead. She gently KICKS him. He doesn't
move. She KICKS him even harder. He still doesn't
Lizzie notices her purse... and just beyond it...
the GUN her mother gave her. Not taking any chances,
she grabs it, turns on Necros, and unloads all six
bullets into his corpse. She keeps pulling the
trigger, even though the chambers are more than empty.
Lizzie's gone mad. The night's events have caused a
mental overload. She collapses to knees in the road
next to Dominic's body, the rain pouring down on her.
Lizzie suddenly hears heavy footsteps on gravel
approaching. She slowly looks up and sees...
In the road, caught in the van's flickering headlights.
He stands frozen, holding his machete. He breathes
in the cold night air, sending steam shooting from
his mouth... waiting... watching.
Lizzie looks around. The van is demolished. Beth
is dead. Jason Voorhees blocks any escape. The
gun is empty. She looks over at Dominic...
He still clutches the SYRINGE of Somnambulene.
Lizzie takes a deep breath and, with one eye still
on Jason, cautiously tugs at the syringe. It doesn't
budge. Lizzie pulls harder and pries the syringe
from his grip.
Lizzie looks up at Jason.
Jason eyes her warily, tightening his grip on the
machete. He breathes heavily, more steam shoots out.
He slowly hoists the blade up high. Just as he is
about to bring it down on Lizzie's head, she SCREAMS...
Lizzie's trembling voice betrays her fear. She now
faces her last -- and only -- option.
You want to end your nightmare --
our nightmare. You're the only one
who can do it. I know where you can
find him. I can take you there.
She looks at him in a moment of silence.
I can help you.
Lizzie raises the syringe of Somnambulene high into
the air, then stabs it into her leg, hard, pushing
the plunger down.
You can help me.
In the moment before she loses consciousness, she
She falls to the ground at Jason's feet...
Her hand opens... sending the syringe rolling towards
Lizzie PASSES OUT.
EXT. LAKE - NIGHT
Lizzie is lying on the ground where she fell. She
wakes up and looks around. Jason, Dominic, Beth,
the van -- they're all gone. Lizzie rises to her
feet, unsettled. She is very alone.
Her frightened cries echo into the darkness. There
is no respone. Jason Voorhees is nowhere to be seen.
The surrounding woods seem more ominous and deadly
now. She begins to panic.
Lizzie turns and sees the cabin, standing in the
distance, dark and foreboding. She starts to walk
towards it, but stops when she hears strange noises
coming from inside.
Lizzie turns and quickly moves back toward the road.
The sounds inside the cabin grow louder and more
menacing. She starts to run.
A HAUNTING WIND suddenly rushes through the woods,
engulfing her, pushing her back toward the cabin.
With one last ounce of strength, Lizzie manages to
grab hold of a support beam holding up the cabin's
porch. But it's no use. The old, rotted beam CRACKS
and Lizzie is thrown back into...
INT. CABIN - NIGHT
BOOM! She hits the wall hard! Her body drops to
the floor as the UNEARTHLY WIND pelts her with leaves
and debris. The furniture and other objects in the
room float, swirl and levitate mysteriously, trapped
in the strange, hellish cyclone.
Looking to escape the wind, Lizzie tentatively moves
We don't know where it goes or how long it is because
it disappears into the darkness.
The winds slam a door shut behind her. Lizzie jumps,
then moves forward cautiously. Suddenly, a shape
emerges from the shadows. It's...
Mrs. Daniels rushes forward, wrapping her arms around
her daughter, holding her tight. Lizzie breaks down,
crying in relief.
Lizzie! Thank God! I've been worried
sick about you. I went to your room,
but you were gone, I didn't know
Do you know how long it took me to
find you here?
A strange look washes over Lizzie's face. She pulls
back from her mother, staring at her.
How did you find me here?
Before Mrs. Daniels can answer, we hear
HELLISH NOISES lurking in the shadows. Mrs. Daniels
tightens her hold on Lizzie and fearfully peers into
Did you hear that? Lizzie, I'm
scared. What is this horrible place?
Lizzie tries to pull away from her mother, but she
won't loosen her grip.
Let go of me! Let go...
Mrs. Daniels starts to scream.
Lizzie, please! Stop it! Why are
you doing this to me? To your own
Suddenly, Mrs. Daniels' body disassembles, becoming
a swarm of thick, translucent, BOSCH-LIKE EEL
Lizzie screams and fights to tear the eels away
from her body one by one! They each land on the
floor with a SPLAT!
Lizzie looks for a way out, but it's no use. The
eels encircle her, screaming, forcing her up against
the wall. They begin to writhe and squirm, piling
up on top of each other, forming a massive deadly
Lizzie watches in disbelief as the ghastly horde
organizes and forms into a disgusting human
silhouette. From it's outstretched arm comes a
mass of wriggling fingers, which transform into --
FREDDY'S DEADLY RAZOR CLAW!
Then the rest of the mass changes into --
He looks at Lizzie and cackles.
Are you scared?
Lizzie shrinks back from Freddy in terror.
Freddy smiles. The flesh on his burn-scarred face
suddenly contorts into a hellish vision far beyond
anyone's comprehension, then quickly snaps back to
Lizzie stumbles backward, clutching the wall for
You should be.
Freddy's face erupts once more. Only this time, it
becomes twice the size and twice the horror! He
snaps at Lizzie with his disgusting maw.
She screams as she abandons all caution and tears
off down the darkened hallway.
We PUSH IN on Freddy's face as he laughs maniacally.
Lizzie turns corner after corner, looking over her
shoulder, only to find Freddy is close behind.
Suddenly, the FLOORBOARDS beneath her feet begin to
separate. Lizzie continues to run forward, straddling
the ever-widening floorboards until she loses her
She screams and falls. Just before she drops through,
she grabs hold and dangles over the dark abyss below.
Suddenly the floorboards begin to CLOSE IN on her,
slamming violently shut, one by one.
Lizzie's hands are only seconds away from being
crushed. She makes a decision to DROP.
Lizzie screams as she FREE-FALLS into the darkness.
INT. NIGHTMARE CHAMBER
Lizzie lands with a crash on an old cobblestone floor.
She's hurt. She rises slowly and tries to make sense
of her new surroundings.
It's almost pitch black.
A dim eerie light filters through the floorboards
above, casting strange shadows on the odd geometric
shapes that fill the room.
Lizzie takes a tentative step to the left. Did a
huge, dark column move in towards her? She takes
a step to her right. Was that a pipe dropping down
behind her? The room seems to be alive. Shapes
move, gliding silently, occasionally repositioning
Lizzie's eyes dart around, looking for an escape.
A gust of wind blows open a huge, rusty iron DOOR.
>From the moonlight that filters in, we know this
is a way out.
Lizzie cautiously approaches the door. It backs
away from her.
She takes a few steps closer. The door moves up
off the floor, just beyond her reach. Lizzie is
Behind her, we hear a DRIP, DRIP, DRIP...
The fat, disgusting EEL CREATURES squeeze into the
room through a large pipe looming overhead. They
silently ooze to the floor, reassuming Freddy's
original human form.
You shouldn't have come.
Lizzie spins around and sees Freddy. She SCREAMS!
But Freddy is not looking at her. He's looking
past her. Into the shadows.
Think he'll protect you?...
Lizzie chances a look over her shoulder. She sees...
A glint of steel...
JASON VOORHEES slowly moves into the room, machete
dangling at his side, staring at Freddy with
LIZZIE looks to Jason, hopefully.
Freddy and Jason circle each other, cautiously.
Lizzie's relief turns to horror as she realizes
she is trapped between two demons hell-bent on
Jason sweeps Lizzie aside and LUNGES at Freddy.
But Freddy DISAPPEARS!
Jason is baffled.
Freddy REAPPEARS behind Lizzie.
Jason charges, bringing up his machete. Freddy
grabs Lizzie, using her as a shield. She SCREAMS
and Jason stops dead in his tracks.
Freddy CACKLES and DISAPPEARS again.
Then, in the blink of an eye, Lizzie's face MORPHS
Lizzie ducks, falling to the floor. But Jason is
right on top of her. As his blade arcs downward,
Lizzie's face TRANSFORMS back to normal! Eyes wide
in terror, she rolls out of the way. Jason's blade
just misses her and hacks deep into the floor.
Freddy REAPPEARS behind them, LAUGHING maniacally.
Lizzie jumps to her feet, backing away from Jason,
SOBBING. Jason is totally confused. He looks from
Freddy to Lizzie, then back to Freddy again.
Jason ROARS and swings at Freddy. But Freddy blocks
the blow with his claw. Metal on metal. Sparks fly!
Jason yanks his machete free, almost taking off
Lizzie's head in the process.
Don't touch her!
He LASHES OUT with his razors. Lizzie throws up her
hands to protect her face. Freddy SLICES open her
palm. She looks down in shock.
JASON knocks Lizzie aside and lunges at Freddy,
delivering a series of incredible, lightning-fast
FREDDY amazingly manages to dodge them all!
In one impossible move, Freddy twists his body
around and backhands Jason across the face with his
heavy steel glove, and -- CRACK! We hear the
sickening sound of ligament tearing from bone as
Jason's head twists back at an unnatural angle.
Jason collapses to his knees, broken and near death.
Lizzie is now completely exposed.
Freddy moves in for the death blow and...
WHOOSH! Jason suddenly rears up and buries his
machete deep into Freddy's neck. The blade comes
to an abrupt stop when it hits BONE!
Freddy lets out a dry, raspy, DEATH RATTLE. Then,
he breaks into a broad grin and begins to CACKLE!
You can't kill me!
He slowly steps away from Jason, backing off the
You can't kill your fear!
Jason stares at his useless machete. Freddy grabs
the blade with his bare hand and yanks. Jason falls
forward, landing chin-first on the cobblestone floor.
Freddy drops down in front of Jason.
Remember our game? The nightmare
He advances his razor claw across the floor like a
spider stalking its prey. The claw suddenly and
Giant mechanical knives sprout out of the smaller
blades... a nightmare forged of hellish steel!
Jason is mesmerized with terror.
First I scare you...
Freddy clamps his super-claw around Jason's neck.
...Then you die!
Freddy summons BOILING WATER out of a large tank and
into the air where it hovers as a huge, amorphous,
He thrusts Jason's head into the mass of churning
water. Jason STRUGGLES.
Freddy's face grossly distorts as he CACKLES
BACK TO SCENE
Freddy turns to Lizzie.
Help him. He's drowning!
Looks to JASON'S MACHETE, which lies on the ground
at her feet. She does nothing.
FREDDY snorts derisively.
How many people have to die because
Freddy shoves Jason's entire body into the blob of
He CACKLES and waves his hand with a flourish.
Lizzie reels in shock as icy blue flames erupt and
explode all around her. FLASH! FLASH! FLASH!
The darkened nightmare chamber illuminates! We
suddenly realize we are in...
INT. FREDDY'S BOILER ROOM
Lizzie SCREAMS as Jason struggles, trapped in the
bubble. His body convulses, then finally GOES LIMP.
Jason's death has pushed Lizzie over the edge.
Lizzie snatches up Jason's machete and STRIKES at
RIP! The blade SPLITS OPEN Freddy's arm. Freddy
You can't do this! I control the
For the first time, Freddy Krueger is afraid!
Lizzie looks at Freddy's wound, and then into his
eyes, her own fear suddenly replaced with intense
This is my nightmare. And in my
nightmare, Freddy does feel pain.
In my nightmare, Freddy bleeds!
Freddy looks down at his wound as BLOOD begins to
POUR forth. He begins a hellish panic.
Lizzie looks with intense concentration at Jason,
floating lifeless in his watery grave. The entire
room begins to shake.
And in my nightmare, JASON WINS!
Water erupts! Jason CRASHES to the floor. Giant
plumes of steam fill the boiler room as Jason's
body starts to tremble and quake.
JASON RESURRECTS, letting loose an unearthly ROAR!
Every fiber, vein, and muscle in his body explodes
horrifically. He transforms into a hulking, seething,
Jason has become the embodiment of Lizzie's pure
and utter rage -- a living nightmare!
LIZZIE turns to Freddy, trembling violently.
This is where my nightmare ends...
and yours begins!
She looks to her own nightmarish creation.
TAKE HIM TO YOUR WORLD, JASON!
Jason snatches up Freddy and BELLOWS. The CAMERA
SPIRALS into his cavernous maw.
We PULL OUT of a screaming mouth. Now it's FREDDY
Jason slams him down onto the asphalt road and
raises his MACHETE high into the air.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!
As the searing flash of lightning subsides, we
realize that we are...
EXT. DIRT ROAD - NIGHT
We see the van crashed against the tree. This is
the same place where Lizzie injected herself with
Lizzie is standing over Freddy. She stares down
at him, shuddering with anger.
Welcome to your nightmare.
Freddy scrambles to his feet and turns around in
time to see Jason SLICING him across the chest.
A giant spiral of blood arcs through the air.
Freddy HOWLS in pain.
Sinister orchestral music kicks in. It's Jason's
infamous STALKING THEME!
Freddy runs. Jason attacks. His machete just misses
Freddy and connects with a TREE. It explodes!
Freddy tears into the foreboding woods, ripping
through thick, gnarled trees and thorny brambles.
Jason roars forward, coming on like a freight train
from hell. He swings his machete, annihilating
everything in his path. He snatches up a large ROCK
and hurls it at Freddy's head.
The rock rips past Freddy and BOOM! It explodes
against a sheer wall of granite.
Then, Jason sends an even bigger rock sailing
through the air...
CRACK! The rock connects with the back of Freddy's
head. He goes down hard. Jason is on top of Freddy
in an instant.
He picks Freddy up and slams him into the ground,
pummeling his with his bare hands.
We've never seen Freddy suffer like this before.
He tries to fight back, swinging his super-claw,
SCREAMING like a banshee.
But Jason is too monstrous! Too quick! Too powerful!
Freddy suffers a series of catastrophic, crippling
blows, which only one monster could possibly take
Jason grabs Freddy and lifts him over his head.
Freddy SCREAMS and struggles against Jason's grip.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!
Suddenly, Freddy tears one arm free and PLUNGES his
razor claw deep into Jason's neck. Jason HOWLS
and stumbles backwards.
We suddenly realize that both monsters stand at the
edge of a dangerous precipice.
>From the bottom of the ravine, looking up, we see
Jason and Freddy start to tumble over the edge.
Jason quickly reaches out and grabs hold of a branch
growing out of a huge, rotted-out tree. He swings out
over the ravine. Freddy barely manages to hold on.
Suddenly, Freddy's razor claw rips loose from Jason's
neck. Freddy DROPS. At the last possible second...
He desperately STABS HIS CLAW into Jason's thickly
muscled calf. Now, he dangles over the sharp rocks
Jason HOWLS and tries to shake Freddy loose. The
tree's ancient roots start to rip from the ground
under the combined weight of the two monsters.
The branch Jason is holding SNAPS! Jason and Freddy
FREE FALL, then SLAM into hard earth, missing the
deadly rocks by mere inches.
They both look up to see the giant tree trunk tear
free of the cliff-side. It comes plummeting toward
Freddy rolls out of the way just as the massive trunk
slams into Jason, driving him into the earth.
Freddy staggers back, disappearing into the shadows.
Jason struggles, pinned under the weight of the tree.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!
Jason ROARS, throws the tree from his chest, and jumps
to his feet. He looks around... but Freddy is gone.
Jason STALKS past the black waters of the lake,
looking for Freddy.
The only sounds we can hear are the beating of Jason's
heart and wind rattling the rotted out timbers of
an old boathouse. Jason approaches the wooden
Freddy BURSTS through the wall!
In a shower of splintering wood, Freddy drives his
razor claw deep into Jason's chest! He clamps his
hand around Jason's heart.
Jason CRIES OUT, drops his machete, and begins to
SHRINK BACK TO HIS ORIGINAL SIZE, his look of anger
and rage slowly giving way to one of fear.
He freezes as Freddy tightens his grip and stares
deep into his eyes.
I can feel your heart beating
faster, Jason. Are you afraid?
Freddy forces Jason to take a step back. Jason reels
in agony as Freddy controls his every movement by
twisting and squeezing his heart. He backs Jason
OLD, RICKETY DOCK
Freddy lets loose an insane CACKLE.
I killed you once, I'll kill you
again. Only this time... it's
Lizzie hurls the MACHETE. It sails toward the two
FREDDY watches in disbelief as the huge blade spins
JASON snatches the machete out of the air and gives
Freddy a massive shove.
FREDDY tumbles backwards and...
RIPS JASON'S HEART OUT!
FREDDY slowly turns to face LIZZIE. Her face washes
with horror when she sees Jason's still-beating heart
clutched in his razor glove. Freddy CACKLES
JASON HASN'T GONE DOWN!
With one final burst of rage, JASON ROARS and plunges
his big BLADE deep into Freddy's back. It thrusts
straight through Freddy's chest and toward camera.
FREDDY looks down in shock at the blade slicing
JASON lifts Freddy high into the air, skewered on
his massive blade! Freddy struggles, writhing in
Jason's face distorts with anger as his eyes burn
into Freddy. He opens his mouth -- but he doesn't
roar. He doesn't bellow. He doesn't howl...
HE FINALLY SPEAKS.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!
LIZZIE watches, transfixed, as Freddy deliquesces
into a hideous, foul, bubbling, nightmarish GOB.
FREDDY KRUEGER IS NO MORE.
A huge BOLT OF LIGHTNING hits the dock. BOOM! Wood
explodes! It cracks in half! The far end of the
dock starts to sink under Jason's massive weight.
JASON falls backwards into the lake, the huge hole
in his chest filling with water as he disappears
into the murky depths.
CAMERA PUSHES in on Lizzie. A strange smile slowly
creeps across her face.
THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!
CUT TO BLACK.
