Day 44 – Freddy vs. Jason (2003): Freddy Krueger

“He may get the blood, but I’ll get the glory.”

I included Freddy vs Jason simply because when I was growing up these were the titans of horror and the idea of them both being in the same film was a horror fanboy dream.  I also thought it might cover me off for Jason Voorhees and not having to include various Friday the 13th and some of the confusion around who’s who.

Then I opened it up to my Patreon backers to pick which one of the two I’d draw.

They chose Freddy.

Now I’m thinking of reshuffling and slipping either Friday the 13th Part 8 Jason Takes Manhattan and or Jason 9 which I think is Jason in space which is awesomely awful. (Chris on Patreon pointed out that it is 10 that Jason goes to space)

Freddy Kruger is a loathsome creature that has no place being a cult hero LOL, the 80s was a weird time as we got obsessed over a creature born of the revenge of parents torching a child killer. 

But wow, do I have some fond memories of the franchise (including a video game tie in).

It’s been years since I watched this but I do remember the ending and the fact that neither one really beat the other which is probably the perfect way to do it.

This is part of the 366 Characters from 366 Films project running throughout 2020. The original illustrations go on sale over on the Lee Draws Stuff store the same day (around 9:00 am Brisbane time) and are available until someone snaps it up.

Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal entries which include sneak peeks, behind the scenes and first looks then head over to Patreon and subscribe for as little as $1 (US) a month.
