  1. I love Jason,but Freddy is more inventive,has a more original and sinister backstory,has a cooler weapon and,despite being more goofy in later films,is still one evil and scary killer. Plus,most of Freddy’s films are alot more fun,creative,have a little more depth and are more ambitious than the Friday the 13th series. As popular as Jason was back in the day,Freddy ruled the 80’s. Krueger wins,hands down.

  2. Freddy only dangerous in dreams, Jason was in reality doing all this. please Jason wins this thou I like and watched both. Jason wins.

  3. Freddy wins bcuz he make your worst nightmare come true b4 he kills you. But Jason is still a out of control monster truck that never stop killing. I like them both

  4. Crispin Glover’s crisp dance moves are mind blowingly awesome in Friday The 13th : The Final Chapter. I’d like to see him vs. “Jesse” from A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2 : Freddy’s Revenge have a dance battle. The dance battle of all dance battles. 🔥 I’m rollin with Crispin in that one. 💯

  5. I don’t agree with that at all I believe Jason is way scarier then Freddy for the simple fact he’s in reality you have to go to sleep for free to take effect and there is drugs his franchise hypnocil that suppress dreams so you get some of that or just forget about him any cannot harm you Jason he’s going to kill you regardless and that’s why he’s scarier
