Many people who know me, know I have an abiding love for horror movies.
I especially love the older classics, such as “The Exorcist,” George A. Romero’s zombie films, “Halloween,” and the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”
My personal favourite horror character is Freddy Krueger, the dream stalker from the “Nightmare on Elm Street” series.
But if there’s one thing horror fans love, it’s debating their favourite film baddies, and arguing over who would win, if they met up on-screen. Over the years, we’ve seen many of these battles play out on the big screen.
There’s been “Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man.”
In 1962, we got “King Kong Kong vs. Godzilla!”
Those were a little before my time, but I still love ’em. But in 2003, we got two of my favourite screen slashers together, for “Freddy vs. Jason!”
Now, thanks to a fan-made trailer that went viral, and became super popular, we’re going to get a new-era horror mash-up, as Japanese studio Kadokawa has unleashed a teaser trailer for “The Ring vs. The Grudge!” The cool thing about Japanese horror films, is that they are often more psychological in nature, as opposed to just flat-out gory. They mess with your head, as you watch. I can only imagine what this mashup will be like! Here’s the official trailer!
I probably won’t sleep for a month after this! I can’t wait!
