We saw Freddy Krueger versus Jason Voorhees play out in the nostalgic horror classic "Freddy vs. Jason," and it wasn't super clear who won the brawl. Who do you think would win in a rematch? Well, keep reading and we'll recap what makes these icons so great. 

#TeamFreddyKrueger

Freddy Krueger was created by horror master Wes Craven, who based Freddy's aesthetic off of a creepy man who peaked through his window as a child. Craven also drew inspiration from studies of people who died in their sleep. So Freddy's creation is even rooted in creepy, real-life situations. In 1984, "A Nightmare on Elm Street" reinvented the slasher horror genre and grossed more than $25 million domestically at the box office. Today, the franchise has made more than $361 million domestically.

Freddy was a child murderer who was burned by a mob of angry townsfolk in the fictional town of Springwood, Ohio. But Freddy Krueger would later get revenge on the families who live on Elm Street. He returned as a demonic spirit, hellbent on killing off the mob's teenaged offspring one-by-one in their nightmares. Dying in your sleep meant dying in the real world, which makes Freddy even more terrifying than some psycho chasing you around with a meat cleaver.

Freddy has used his astral projection abilities to kill off teenagers in their nightmares in some pretty creative ways, typically preying on their deepest, darkest fears. It was Robert Englund's performances as Freddy Krueger that popularized the character in the '80s, making him one of the most legendary monsters in pop culture.

Jason Voorhees wasn't the original serial killer of "Friday the 13th," it was his mother—Pamela Voorhees. Jason made his debut in the second film, wearing a sack over his face, finally donning his iconic hockey mask in "Part III." Jason became the juggernaut of horror movie monsters in the early '80s, with "Friday the 13th" spawning 10 sequels and a reboot. The "Friday the 13th" franchise has made more than $380 million domestically at the box office.

Jason drowned as a small child in 1957 at Camp Crystal Lake from negligence, as camp counselors were not watching him. After his mother goes on a killing spree both in the '50s and '80s to shut down the camp, Jason makes his grand return. It's simple—he wants to avenge the death of his mother after her head is chopped off in the first film. And he does just that!

Jason Voorhees, over the course of the franchise, becomes an unstoppable killing machine. If you are a teenager on his lawn, and you are engaging in sexual activity, drugs or alcohol, then you are as good as dead. It's especially over for you once you hear that "ki ki ki ma ma ma" sound effect and a twig break in the woods.

Jason was in direct competition with Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger in the '80s, but neither of the other horror icons could match him in number of sequels or total kills.
