The horror genre is filled with villains we love to hate. Since imagination has no boundaries, we can't help but fantasize about these icons testing their mettle against each other in epic horror movie mashups. Whether blade against blade, nightmarish claws against hellish chains, or doll against demon, we simply can't get enough.
Sadly, character licensing, financial issues and other legal concerns often stand in the way of such monumental endeavors. Yes, we have seen a few official mashups like Freddy Vs. Jason and the upcoming Sadako v Kayako, featuring characters from The Ring and The Grudge. But filmmakers don't always have the means or the motivation to pit cross-studio baddies against each other. So we turn to 'fair use' leniency and the minds of zealous horror fans ready to breathe life into our nightmares.
The following 5 iconic battles royale are in my opinion, the best fandom horror movie mashups on the internet. They are not, however, listed in order of quality. Watch, enjoy, and don't forget to leave the lights on.
1. Ash vs Jason Vorhees vs Freddy Krueger
This 10-minute villain battle is my favorite fan-made horror movie mashup. Using the natural wooded forest and cabin scenes from both Friday the 13th and The Evil Dead, this video sets up a very believable fight sequence between Jason and Ash. And once inside the cabin, a tumble down the stairs easily transitions into an epic basement brawl between Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger and our favorite chainsaw toting wise-cracker -- one originally hinted at by the presence of Freddy's glove in Evil Dead II.
2. Michael Myers vs Chucky vs Pinhead
Everybody loves Chucky. But is he tough enough to face other immortal icons like Michael and Pinhead, and win? Watch the video below to see for yourself.
3. Leatherface vs Ash
Because no horror battle collection is complete without an all out chainsaw vs. chainsaw clash. But that's just pillow talk, baby. It's time to start the bloodshed. Be warned the following footage is guaranteed to make you say "Groovy"!
4. Freddy vs The Evil Dead
Prepare yourself for the ultimate monster bash. Freddy, Chucky, Leatherface, Michael and Jason kick some demon ass. This is an all-out, no-holds-barred bout between all of our favorite slashers and an army of demon-possessed Deadites.
5. Freddy vs Jason in 'Hellraised'
This video is part one of a five-installment series. Using all of his inter-dimensional hellish powers, Pinhead calls forth Jason Vorhees and Freddy Krueger for a fight to the finish. At least, that would be the case if either of these guys could be finished off. There is definitely an upside to being immortal. Don't forget to 'click thru' after the first video and watch the entire series.
