Topic: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

Azzy- Hello!  I'm posting Lon's Month 1 Finals for him since he's off doing Lon-like things.  Cthulhu declined to comment.  So got pick your bracket 1 winner. Enjoy!
----------------------------------------

Welcome to the first Month Final of HM's Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior.

Now is when we take each of the weekly winners from the last four weeks and pit them against one another in a four-man free-for-all.  Each monthly winner will then sit on the sidelines and recuperate until the First Half-Season Final, where he/she/it will then square off against future monthly winners.

So without further ado, this First Month Final match-up is:

Re: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

Well, Shaun and Jack are toast no matter what.  As runners up, I give the nod to Shaun.

So we're down to Freddy & the Blob.  I doubt the Blob sleeps, so the fight will have to occur in the 'real' world.  The only way Freddy could beat the Blob would be to get a lot of liquid nitrogen (or something similar) and then transport the Blob to Antarctica.  Maybe he could pull off the initial freezing part, but I can't see him borrowing a C-130 transport.  Nor can I see him getting along well with the military to help him out.

Gotta go with the Blob.

Somebody vote, please, or Lon will be displeased with my work.  I don't want my name being changed to 'Igor.'

Re: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

I am going to vote for Freddy because I think he could cut The Blob into tiny little chunks.

Re: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

The Blob consumes all. It especially likes crispy food like Freddy.

Re: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

I feel bad for ruling out Shaun and Jack so early on, but Jack would be no match for Shaun (younger, quicker, baseball bat, not insane), even if he had his axe. So Jack earns 4th place. Shaun gets 3rd, but he couldn't beat either Freddy or The Blob; he only has human strength and no special powers to speak of.

I think Freddy would be faster than The Blob, therefore able to sneak up behind him and slash him into tiny chunks of Blob. Although Freddy would be deadlier in the dream world, obviously, I don't think the fight would take place there as I can't see a scenario where The Blob would be all tucked up in bed, vulnerable and waiting for Freddy to pounce.

Although the fight would then have to take place in this realm, I still think that Freddy's slashing ability takes a hell of a lot to be beaten, and I don't think The Blob has it.

So Freddy wins for me

Re: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

Shaun and Jack get bounced first by Freddy. FK would shred the shit outta them both, in record time, with his razor glove. Freddy puts up a good fight vs The Blob, but it the end is no match for the space amoeba. The Blob, engulfs Freddy and makes a tasty midnight snack of him.

Winner and champion: The Blob.

The Blob may be a bitch to bring down.

Re: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

Aww man. I feel as though my team just lost big_smile haha thanks for (collaboratively) posting these guys, I really love em

Re: POLL: Deadliest Horror Movie Warrior, Month 1 Finals

How I'd break it down:

As far as I'm concerned, you can immediately count Shaun and Torrance out.   Freddy might be a bit more trouble, but ultimately still isn't a threat.  Obviously he'd first need to be drawn into the real world in order to be involved in this fight in the first place (The Blob is a mindless, consuming mass and has never been shown to be dormant, let alone in need of sleep, so it's not like it can be pulled into the dream world).

All that said, in the "real world" there's nothing Freddy can do to hurt the blob.  He'd have just as much luck taking a razor to a bowl of oatmeal.  The Blob would consume him -- but Freddy would just be reborn in the dreamworld, like he always is, in every installment of the NOES series.  Any time he was pulled back into the real world, Blob would have a free meal.  I'd imagine the point would come where Freddy would tire of being eaten by the Blob and reborn over and over again, and would stop bothering at all.

My take: The Blob wins.
