About two weeks ago, Jason Voorhees entered the world of Mortal Kombat X as a downloadable character. Inserting the iconic slasher into the game made positive impressions with Friday the 13th fans worldwide. In addition to Freddy Krueger’s inclusion into Mortal Kombat 9, it appears as if NetherRealm Studios may be onto something special. With the video game franchise’s reputation for blood and gore, it makes perfect sense that NetherRealm would start to slowly include famous characters from horror films into the game. With the rate at which these characters are being introduced however, fans may have to wait for the next Mortal Kombat installment to see their favorite horror character trade blows with the likes of Scorpion or Sub-Zero.

Until that happens, there is always the hidden gem that is Terrordrome: Rise of the Boogeymen – a fan-made fighting game that pits your favorite characters from popular horror movies in a fight to the death. Originally developed by Huracan Studios, the game’s roster contains 14 characters from the genre’s most frightening movies. The complete roster can be found below:

  • Ash (Evil Dead)
  • Candyman (Candyman)
  • Chucky (Child’s Play)
  • Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street)
  • Ghostface (Scream)
  • Herbert West (Re-Animator)
  • Dead Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th)
  • Undead Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th)
  • Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
  • Maniac Cop (Maniac Cop)
  • Michael Myers (Halloween)
  • Pinhead (Hellraiser)
  • Pumpkinhead (Pumpkinhead)
  • Tallman (Phantasm)


Each character’s fighting style is unique and carefully developed to include movesets similar to their movie counterparts. For example, one of Freddy Krueger’s special moves includes attacking his opponents with the ‘Freddy Worm’, which is originally derived from a scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.

If the game intrigues you, it can be downloaded at the link below. Now we can determine (at least subjectively) who would win in a battle between Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers.
