Freddy vs. Jason was a financial juggernaut back in 2003. So why these major studios won't take advantage of these crossovers is beyond me! But I have reason to believe the Michael Myers vs. Jason debate will be addressed one day in film, and soon.
4. Sneaky Studios
Big time movie studios have blindsided fans before, with movies or crossovers they knew would make us go wild. Think back to the surprise Freddy cameo at the end of Jason Goes To Hell. We had absolutely no idea that would happen beforehand, the higher powers just sort of gave it to us. So who's to say they aren't planning something similar for a crossover between Michael and Jason?
3. Horror Isn't at rhe Top of Its Game Anymore
There was once a time when horror movies were the most watched type of film. In 1982 alone, 62% of box office earnings went to horror flicks because there were so many coming out at once. But if we fast forward to today, you can clearly see that horror isn't anywhere near where it used to be. And I don't just mean financially. People just aren't as interested as they were back in the '80s. That would definitely change if Michael and Jason were to finally cross paths though.
I don't really want to say that people are getting tired of watching Jason and Michael Myers hack and slash on the big screen. It's more like fans want to see something new within both franchises. Yes, we're excited about seeing another Halloween and Friday The 13th movie next year. But can we at least watch them both throw-down just once?
1. Fan Demands
Which brings me to my final point. Recently I've been noticing a lot of people say they would love to see this fight on the big screen. And that's nothing new. Fans have been asking for this since Jason came on the horror scene with the early Friday The 13th movies. This fight has been high in the hopes of horror fans since day one. And I'm sure the higher powers will recognize this eventually, it's inevitable. Think of it as the Batman vs. Superman of horror.
