Halloweek: Freddy vs. Jason vs. Bambi vs. Godzilla


As a prelude to the scariest night of the year, my husband suggested that we watch Freddy Vs. Jason this weekend -- perhaps forgetting that, having been allowed by an idiotic babysitter to watch the original Nightmare on Elm Street at age 11, I am terrified of teen slasher flicks. As a result, I did not sleep at all this weekend, which meant I spent lots of time drinking coffee and surfing Wikipedia at 3 a.m., where I encountered a wonderful list of other movies that pit famous stars against each other. These include:

  • Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
  • Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955)
  • Alien vs. Predator (2004)
  • Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein (1999)
  • Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943)
  • The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones (1987)
  • King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)
  • Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo (1970)
  • and my personal favorite, Bambi Meets Godzilla (1969), the entirety of which you can watch below.
