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.
