New book Slash of the Titans details the legendary making of Freddy vs Jason

One of the major things I get asked all the time by non-horror fans is, "If FREDDY VS JASON made so much money, why wasn't there a sequel?" Trust me, I get asked this all the time. Not sure why. Anyhow, while this new book isn't an answer to THAT particular question, it might give people some insight into just how hard it was getting the first film released!

The stories of the making of FREDDY VS JASON are legend in the horror community, but now all the hearsay and urban legends are laid out in real interviews with the real screenwriters, producers, etc behind the scenes. For the first time, here is what REALLY happened behind the scenes.

The new book is called SLASH OF THE TITANS and it is available right now on Amazon. The book details the history of the first FREDDY VS JASON flick. It is written by Dustin McNeill runs a healthy 248 pages.

SLASH OF THE TITANS rundown via Amazon:

PLACE YOUR BETS, WINNER KILLS ALL!

From the author of Phantasm Exhumed comes Slash of the Titans, a revealing look at why it took New Line Cinema nearly ten years and four-million-dollars to find the right screenplay for Freddy vs Jason. Featuring new interviews with the original writers and filmmakers, Slash details the production's troubled history from the surprise ending of Jason Goes to Hell all the way to the crossover’s red carpet premiere. Read about the many rejected storylines and learn how the project was eventually able to escape from development hell. This is the story of one film, two horror icons and seventeen screenwriters!

SLASH OF THE TITANS includes:

- Comprehensive looks at ten different versions of the screenplay
- Info on early crossover attempts by Friday the 13th filmmakers
- Exclusive details on the never made Freddy vs Jason: Hell Unbound video game
- Insights from producers, executives and developers including Sean Cunningham
- An examination of why the Shannon/Swift script was finally greenlit
- Summaries of the four endings considered for the 2003 film
- Coverage of the never made Freddy vs Jason vs Ash sequel
- New comments from the titans themselves - Robert Englund and Ken Kirzinger
- Appendices full of story details including the outcomes of all ten versions


This might be something I have to pick up for myself. I mean the massive CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES book touched on the history of FREDDY VS JASON, but 248 pages worth of the history seems to intriguing to pass up. I have read a few of the FREDDY VS JASON scripts out there, and some are awesome, and some are unbelievably terrible.

Thank God we got the version we did. For better or worse. It'll take it.
