While not a flawless fan edit – you’ll notice when “Freddy’s” glove appears and disappears – this is overall a pretty inspired splicing of footage to make it look like JCVD just got welcomed to your nightmare…on Elm Street. Van Damme definitely has the body, while Freddy has the brains in this battle. It’s a more even match-up than the time Van Damme had to take the fall in Expendables 2, that’s for sure.
Note: this video is a few years old, but I just now discovered it thanks to Bloody-Disgusting, and I don’t believe we ever covered it before. So, you could watch it and enjoy…or, you get to go home. So who wants to go home…and who is COMING WITH MEEEEE???
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
