Jason vs. Leatherface (2010) (SHORT)
A girl is hunted in the woods by Leatherface. She bumps into someone, and thinks she has found rescue. Her day is about to become even worse, as this 'person' turns out to be the machete wielding Jason Voorhees. When Leatherface encouters Jason, they both decide to finally decide who is the better horror icon: by hitting the fuck out of each other.
Jason vs. Leatherface is exactly what you'd expect: two horror icons facing off for 9 minutes in a video game-like setup. For a small project that is probably made on a shoestring budget, this movie does look very professional. The soundeffects are good, there's some very decent camerawork, and some pretty cool editing (adding to the comic book/video game style). The fight itself is very well choreographed, something even 'professional' productions seem to lack sometimes. Another thing worth mentioning is the design of both Leatherface and Jason Voorhees. Both are done very well, especially Jason Voorhees.
Should this have lasted more than 9 minutes? Nah, probably not (although Freddy vs. Jason turned out to be a very entertaining feature length movie). It's definitely a cool fanmade movie, with a pretty professional look. Director Trent Duncan followed up this horror movie icon battle with a few other similair looking short movies: Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash (2011), Myers vs. Ghostface (2013), and Jason Voorhees vs. Michael Myers (2015).
