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?

Two of the weaker movies from two franchises, as well as what ought to have been a decent bow-out. Of course, franchises being money generators, the killing forces of nature stagger on and on. Rather than releasing these three edits separately, Juice4z0 and Neglify have placed all three in one release, suggesting viewers to watch in proper sequence. Good advice, as the shows progress from lame to enjoyable.
Video - All three were dark compositions. Heavy blacks, deep shadows, dark water, smoke and fog. Reds, too. Elements that conspire to make visuals go haywire. None of that in any of these films. Solid throughout. Trims and cuts were not noticeable. Good flow, good pace.
Audio - Well defined and clear. Freddy’s Dead and Long Night At Camp Blood were both 6 channel, Freddy Vs Jason was 2 channel. I watched on three separate nights so this was not discernable. Binge viewers might pick up on that, however. Dialogue was clean throughout, and all three movies range from whisper to deafening. No subs. The editors provided an audio commentary for each film. Mixed joy there.
Narrative - To me, each film is independent and stands alone. If one assumes they will stitch together, they do not. The structure is episodic. Freddy’s Dead remains a poorly constructed film. Final Chapter is definitely better than the original - more gore, more sex! Freddy Vs Jason helped by reducing Freddy and adding more Jason.
Enjoyment - Thoughts about the audio commentaries. By turns informative, entertaining, irritating. Both editors sound blotto. I wish they had sat on these a bit, gave them another listen, then an edit or an overhaul. For every insight, they counter that with an asinine comment or bout of giggles. Bummer.
The worst aspect of these films is Freddy. I lost interest in his films after Dream Warriors. He had become a moronic cartoon. If I got trapped with him I would say, “Kill me so I don’t have to hear your feeble jokes anymore.” To paraphrase Ted Williams - If you don’t talk too good, don’t talk too much.
Final Camp Blood was much better. Listening to the audio commentary, I realized the editors had been tempted to include excessive nudity and more sex. Guys, next time push that pedal down. Go for it. Plot itself is pointless. Jason kills, Jason cannot be killed. As usual, tempo in the 13th series better than Elm. Real improvement is in the final FvJ. This edit kicks, and makes one dismiss the original damn quick. If you see no other film in this trilogy, be sure to give this a watch. Special note: Closing credits were a gem. Labour of love that kept me going, “Wait! That’s from ... wait a minute!” Awesome treat.
I viewed the mp4‘s, by the way.
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.

The only minus for me is that there aren't any chapters. And that's something I missed.
