Buy it... if a well-executed but very stereotypical orchestral horror score appeals to your darker side's craving for clanging, flesh-tearing music.

Avoid it... if the prospect of hearing a predictable continuation of slasher cliches, no matter their crisp performance, bores you or wears on your nerves.

Revell
Freddy vs. Jason: (Graeme Revell) The Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th movies have held loyal cult audiences since 1980, practically inventing the teenage slasher genre and opening the doors for more modern incarnations like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. Despite a badly fading interest in the most recent films in both original horror franchises, New Line Cinema offered the kind of merged equation that led to similar combinations of familiar foes in other franchises. Fans found the prospect of Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees together in the same film to be irresistible, and with Freddy resurrecting Jason and then battling him over frightened teenage victims to slay (it never hurts for these films to have an abundance of attractive meat to feed to their monsters), audiences propelled Freddy vs. Jason to the number one spot atop the box office earnings list for a week in the late summer season of 2003. The film exceeded most expectations by enthusiasts of the two franchises, and so did the score by Graeme Revell. With these two series running as long as they had been, it was difficult to maintain any kind of continuity in relation to their music. They had never been known for their superior scores, with only the later generation of offspring series eventually handled by more popular composers of the horror genre (such as Marco Beltrami, John Debney, and John Frizzell). Himself no stranger to this genre, Graeme Revell had composed for his fair share of slasher-type films in his career. Most film music collectors will likely recall Revell's space-age horror scores, but his affiliation with cult, slasher thrillers here on Earth included Bride of Chucky, which shared director Ronny Yu with Freddy vs. Jason. Unlike the Halloween series, for which John Carpenter wrote a long-lasting piano theme that existed in the minds of viewers for twenty years, neither Nightmare on Elm Street nor Friday the 13th maintained the same kind of heightened musical identity. Thus, Revell was presented a clean slate with which to begin for Freddy vs. Jason. His response to the concepts was predictable, although the result was, like the film, a little better than expected.
