DISC 1 - Final Nightmare: The Horror Cut (by juice4z0)
I wanted to take the fucking Power Glove out of this movie and make Freddy scary again.
DISC 2 - Friday the 13th: The Long Night At Camp Blood (by Neglify)
This is a fun mash-up movie using my favorite F13 sequels, The Final Chapter and Jason Goes to Hell. This edit follows right after Friday the 13th Part 2, with Jason alive and still hungry for blood.
DISC 3 - FvJ (by NegaJuice)
This picks up where Final Nightmare: The Horror Cut and The Long Night At Camp Blood left off. Freddy Krueger manipulates Jason Voorhees into doing his dirty work so he can rise up from Hell and continue his reign of terror.
BONUS FEATURES –
Did we mention the finale of Freddy’s Dead is in 3D? And that all 3 movies have commentary by Juice and Neg? And that there is a 4th disc with plenty of bonus features?

The following review was originally written on October 24th, 2012 after I had finished watching a marathon of all 3 films. I didn't submit it at the time because the edit had recently been released and my review contains spoilers. Since there are no spoiler tags here I didn't want to spoil the edits for anybody. In case you haven't seen the edits yet you might want to avoid reading it until you have.
Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare - The Horror Cut
Very well executed. I could tell that some stuff was missing, but not everything. I didn't realize about some of it until I listened to the commentary track. This is a definite improvement over the theatrical cut. Freddy is no longer comic relief but a serious threat.
I did notice one mistake though. And this has nothing to do with the editing, or the film itself really, but Juice misspelled his name during the opening credits. lol Instead of crediting himself as Juice4z0 he credited himself as Juicez0.
Friday The 13th: The Long Night At Camp Blood
A good solid edit. Loved the recap, but felt that the new pre-credit sequence was unnecessary. It really felt like it didn't belong, almost like the pre-credit sequence in the remake. Just a random bunch of kids to kill before the movie gets underway. Maybe it's just that I've seen Jason Goes To Hell like 20 or so times since I first saw it on opening night back in 1993 and that scene just sticks out for me. Sorry.
I never really liked Teddy though, he just always annoyed me with his "You want to give Teddy Bear a kiss?", and of course the "Dead fuck" and "Let's put it in the old computer" bullshit. Glad you trimmed him down. Still annoying, but you can't really fix that without getting rid of him completely.
Now as for the ending? I fucking loved it! I'm surprised you didn't keep the part where Tommy grabs the machete and just goes ape shit hacking away at Jason's head though. You probably could have kept that bit in and still ended it like you did. I thought it was brilliant that you used the beginning of The Final Chapter as the ending instead. And that music. The combination of seeing Axel wheel Jason into the morgue and put him in the freezer, along with the music, really made me feel like I was watching Faces Of Death. And nice little twist at the very end. I didn't think you were going to go there, but you did. Nicely done.
Again, the footage from Jason Goes To Hell feels out of place, but this time only because of the difference in quality. It works perfectly otherwise though. I would like to know though how you can explain Jason being dragged down to Hell yet somehow emerging from the water. Would it have been impossible to use the footage of him coming back to life in Jason Lives?
I think it's a shame that the Freddy snake, or whatever the hell that thing was, was still in the film. That is definitely one of the stupider parts of the film which could of at least have been cut in half. Also the scene where the cop is telling the kids about Jason and you intercut it with footage of what he's saying just felt unnecessary. We already know all about Jason and have seen all the films so the footage isn't necessary.
The movie itself though was great. Well maybe not great, but a big improvement over the original, which actually makes it watchable now. And once again I fucking loved the ending! I had to listen to the commentary track to discover what movie the footage used was from, and now I am definitely going to have to see The Cabin In The Woods. And I know you explain on the commentary track what the ending is supposed to signify, but that's not the way I saw it. I saw it more as these events were actually taking place, and these guys behind the scenes somehow had a hand in bringing it all together. Kinda like a Truman Show-type deal but with murder. And all the clips shown during the end credits split screen were just other events/battles/whatever that they were responsible for.
Now about the commentaries. They didn't feel as much as commentaries as just two guys sitting around talking while they watched movies. Very enjoyable though. And I was a little surprised to hear my name brought up so many times. Thanks for clearing up that whole thing with Halloween III. When I first watched it I couldn't help but feel like I had missed it, but then I find out I didn't miss anything because you guys never actually used any footage from it.
The Final Nightmare: The Horror Cut
it's been a long time since i've seen Freddy 6, the only reason i own it is because the completest in me has to have all the films, so going into juice4z0 edit was like watching the film for the first time. i never minded joker freddy i like in parts 3-5 he would kill his victims by using their fears but perhaps part 6 was a step too far with freddy nodding and winking to the camera. juice4z0 successfully cuts all this from the edit giving us a freddy who's more remonstrant from part 3. this doe's however result in a freddy movie which we don't see anyone being killed but rather left to our imagination. overall i was surprised by how much i enjoyed part 6, it has a twin peaks vibe to the film and while the acting, story, execution may not be the best and to which no faneditor could work on to improve it's a fun ride. i'd now consider this to be the second worst freddy film above part 5. 6/10
Friday the 13th: The Long Night At Camp Blood
friday the 13th probably just nudges freddy as my favourite horror franchise, i love parts 1-5 for what they are. the cuts that were made are done well but i'd have to agree with last survivor regarding this edit in that i was expecting something more radical and for the most part it felt as if i was just watching part 4. one way could have been to separate the kids from the family and tell them as two different stories that would then connect at the end. saying that these films are never very long so an editor doesn't have a lot to work with. 5/10
the original film manages to capture and combine both movies franchise really well, and it's a real return to forum for our main villains. while you'll never go into these films with high exceptions regarding plot, acting ect.. it is fun and enjoyable.
i was confused by the opening to this edit as within the first 10-15mins we are shown three different Jason's. the one from hell looks completely different from the overs and is blown up in the opening act only to be stalking a young teenager once again a couple of minutes later. i think it resulted in too much screen time to jason. the scene from part 8 i feel should have been cut as their deaths have no impact within the story and become meaningless. as with the friday edit there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of changes made to the film and for the most part it felt as if i was watching my dvd copy, the ending was great though perhaps this could have been a running theme throughout the edit? 6/10
overall the three edits from a technical point are well done, the changes are not noticeable and they all look great. i'm not sure if the edits are connected within a shared universe as well as they could have been though going into the edit i viewed them individually. i listened briefly to the commentary track and to be honest the style of humour isn't for me (it reminded me of beavis and butthead) i didn't download disc 4 so i can't comment on that disc
I finally got around to watching these edits. I will confess upfront that I am a casual horror fan at best. My parents successfully kept the slasher flicks away from me. As an adult, I tend to be able to only watch movies (such as the Saw series) once or twice. I'm squeamish only if I know what's coming. I only acquired both the Nightmare series and the Friday13 series in the last few months and have been slowing working my way through them.
I really enjoyed the Horror Cut. The goal of removing the over the top comedy from Freddy was really well-done. I just watched the theatrical yesterday, so it was easy for me to see what went missing. We didn't get any of Spence's dream, which felt odd, but the cheesiness of it isn't missed at all. Freddy wasn't "scary" so much as he was "evil", and I think that's all this movie could hope for. I chalk this one up as a success, and I'm sure it'll be used in marathon sessions.
The Long Night At Camp Blood is an interesting one. I watched the theatrical of Final Chapter a couple of weeks ago, so the differences aren't as sharp for me. I did like the different opening and pre-credits scene taken from Jason Goes To Hell. I don't really feel it's fair to call this edit a mashup. The bulk of the movie is a very well-trimmed version of Final Chapter. The characterization of Jimbo works a lot better without the "dead fuck" angle, and he comes across as a horny, nervous virgin who couldn't even get laid by "BJ Betty". The only confusing part from the perspective of the narrative is that there's no explanation of how or why Jason started wearing the hockey mask. I enjoyed the ending.
Freddy vs Jason isn't a great movie, but it's pretty good. I just watched the theatrical for the first time. There wasn't enough of Jason doing Jason things. I did think it was odd that he made the one kill in the house and then left. Doesn't seem his style. I don't think there was enough of Jason building fear in the community between Freddy's first, failed attempt to kill and the second. Jason has never moved quicker than he does during his fight with Freddy. I was glad to see moar Jason in the edit. I appreciated the improved pacing. I would have liked to have seen him kill more before Freddy made his move at the rave. I liked the tightened up, less silly fight at the construction yard. I thought the ending was a bit... well, I don't know quite what to think of the ending. I assume it makes sense to a more serious horror fan. Is that Robert Picardo? He's the bomb. I liked the flashes of all the other franchises during the credits. I liked this one as well, and it will probably be my go-to version, simply for taking out the dumb stuff.
Final Nightmare: The Horror Cut (by juice4z0)
I’m going to be honest. I’ve only seen Wes Craven’s Original Classic, Freddy vs. Jason, and the awful remake. The first Nightmare movie and Freddy vs. Jason are awesome but somehow I never felt like I needed/wanted to see the rest, so I didn’t. But I felt that I should see this fanedit if I was going to see the other two, you know out of respectful to juice4z0, and also to experience FvJ the right way in the right order. Anyway, since I haven’t seen the original cut I can only say that everything looked good audio/video and no cut was noticed. Also want to mention that the 3d section was integrated nicely (watched that part with my F13 part 3d glasses)
Commentary: Juice is stoned and Neglify keeps saying “Fuck yeah Dude!”
Juice4z0: You have a hard on for this guy.
Neglify: I know right, fucking Parker man, my boy.
Juice4z0: Is he even still alive?
Neglify: Probably, let me check, hold on.
Juice4z0: It’s hard to say, Michael Clarke Duncan died the other day.
*sound of keys being typed*
Neglify: Yeah he’s still alive.
Since this is Juice4z0’s fanedit he does most of the talking.
Friday the 13th: The Long Night At Camp Blood (by Neglify)
This was a good edit but not as good as the original cut. Actually IMO there is nothing in Part 4 that should be cut (the computer don’t lie) but the added ass and gore was nice.
I never liked Jason Goes to Hell so the new beginning I didn’t care much for (the only thing that's watchable in JGtH is the pre-credits and the Freddy cameo) but the part Neglify added featured four boobs (two on each girl) so that's four points right there.
Commentary: They discus everything from nudity, inserting penetration in future fanedits, 70s bush, nudity, Jamie Lee Curtis looking like a dyke, the fact that Kimberly Beck hasn’t done nudity, idea of editing a porno, nudity, the fanedit and finally they talk about some nudity.
Yeah I almost forgot, they also talk about boobs.
This is the best edit of the three and probably the only one I’ll see again.
The new opening is very good. Putting more Jason into it makes it feels more like a vs. movie. Not a Nightmare movie featuring Jason. Not a big fan of the Part 8 material though (worst part of part 8 IMO) The new aspect ratio helps separate this from the original cut and makes the movie feel fresh.
The new ending opens the door for more vs. movies by having Freddy and Jason being part of the same universe as other horror icons (as a side note: I haven’t seen the movie that you used for the ending)
Commentary: (unfortunately) NegaJuice spoils (for me anyway) that the girl in the shower, is a body double. Fuck.
8 ½ minutes in...
Juice4z0: This is still all about Freddy...well at the moment it’s all about those tits.
Neglify: And that ass.
DISC 4 (bonus disc)
FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP
The only minus for me is that there aren't any chapters. And that's something I missed.
Man the original movie is just hilarious and I love to watch it drunk with friends. Still when I first watched the entire series in one run I liked some ideas of Nightmare 6 - the strange village, the madness in springwood, freddy bending reality. it was not nearly as scary as the original Nightmare but better than freddy just returning and killing.
So i really liked some aspects especially if you watch it as part of a franchise - because for some reason when watching a franchise in one sitting you are more inclined to look at the things you like than look at the terrible things
With that I must say that Juice has pretty much distilled those ideas from the overall idiocy. No gaming, no chalkboard and so on. The acting unfortunately can not be edited to oscar-level so a few idiotic moments have to be here because otherwise the plot won't work.
With the over the top nature gone a few creepy things remain that are originally buried beneath the powerglove. Such as the creepy earpiece or the very disturbing rapist father.
Because 1.5 major dream sequences have been removed there is a bit where the plot has a notable jump because we don't see the overly elaborate kill. Still it kinda works and what i like is that the dreams are played more like a mystery. in the original the kids fall asleep, are chased through an overlong dream and then killed only to be found by the others.
Here the kids vanish into the dream world and we like the suriving protagonists have no idea where the others are until something strange is happening. So it feels much more like a suspenseful movie than the over the top mess that was freddy's dead.
My only real criticism would be the ending. Because the Freddy vision is restored there is the moment when Kathryn gets the 3D glasses. The ending is done via seamless branching so that one can choose at the beginning of the movie between freddy vision or no freddy vision. I would have liked that the 3D glasses would have been removed from the ending not featuring the freddy vision as it really takes on out of the movie. The glasses were originally just there to tell the audience when it was time to put on their 3D glasses and this effect gets lost if one is just watching it in 2D.
The movie is still no movie on par with nightmare 1,3 and 7 imo but it is a much more streamlined product for a marathon franchise viewing.
Still for a fun-drunk night nothing beats the original
The Long Night at Camp Blood:
I kinda feel bad that I can't say that much about this edit than I could about Freddy's Dead but the Friday series never engaged me that much as the Nightmare series as I found them a bit boring. But this time i just watched it as harmless fluff and had great fun with all the naughty teenagers getting killed for drinking and having sex in the woods.
There was one edit where the focus shifted towards the boy where there is a reaction shot following by a change of place and therefore I did not know in which house i was.
Other than that I really enjoyed the film and while it is dealt with in FvJ I kinda hoped that the sending Jason to hell would happen in this movie because this edit felt more like another jason movie than a tie into freddy vs jason whereas freddy's dead pretty much set up the stakes for fvj
but then again we get the moneyshot of freddy's hand in the opening of fvj so if you watch the 3 movies together it is just a matter of personal preference where you set the "end" for one movie
Now this was fun!
I loved the original Freddy vs. Jason and i liked how they combined the two characters. sure the actors were terrible but this movie is not about the story but about this childish fantasy of "rooting" for your favorite killer - now that sounded weird.
Personally as a Freddy fan I absolutely enjoy Nightmare on Elm Stree: Dream Nemesis by Uncanny Antman so I never looked for an edit to smoothen out my troubles. So i fully embraced the new footage. Sure the style is quite different when jason is slashing in other friday movies than the blue-ish freddy vs jason look but i just went along and had fun with it.
The removal of the killer of the mother and why the boyfriend was locked up was handled nicely and while i like this storyline I had no problems with this version.
And without spoiling but I absolutely enjoyed the fresh ending
Overall the bonus materials on this edit as the edit itself are enormous, funny and sometimes pretty crazy but that is to expected with anything that neglify touches.
Cudos to both editors for such a fantastic treat!
