Horror film fans consider the ‘Friday the 13th’ movie franchise as an institution of the slasher film genre. The 1980 movie gave teens and young adults nightmares during the era.
I found it refreshing that the legend of the iconic killer, Jason Voorhees, remains known today as proven by this replica hockey mask.
If you look closely at this Jason Voorhees hockey mask, the details include even the battle wound the horror character supposedly had in reality.
The mask appears to have fresh blood!
Indeed, a replica of the iconic mask!
I like this Jason Voorhees mask because the artist cast it directly from an actual prop that different actors wore in the film series.
You see, even if Jason Voorhees is the main character of the franchise, different actors played the part. And with that trend, the mask also changed for the duration of the series.
From parts 3 and 4, the hockey mask barely had a scratch, except for a few splashes of blood.
As parts 6 and 7 continued, the mask became heavily disfigured.
There were even editions where portions of the mask appeared to have disintegrated.
This particular Jason Vorhees mask is from ‘Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter.’
In case you reached this page searching for a Halloween costume but don’t understand the background of Jason Voorhees, I am very much willing to tell you the story.
For starters, Jason Voorhees is a real madman. He haunted Camp Crystal Lake with the sole purpose of slaughtering anyone he encountered.
He believed killing at random would avenge his mother’s death. You see, Jason, as a child, witnessed a town counselor beheading his beloved mom.
Behind the mask were Jason’s brown eyes and yellowish deformed teeth. He also had long reddish-brown hair.
At first glance, it would seem he had a deformity in the head. But this was because he was born with hydrocephalus that made his head more prominent than usual.
Even with a dark personality, Jason had an incredibly heartbreaking back story. People bullied him for his appearance.
At one point, his bullies threw him in the lake, where he drowned. The rest, so they say, is history. I will stop at this point in the story if in case you want to binge-watch the series in its entirety.
The whole backdrop made this product indeed the perfect Halloween costume, if you ask me.
The mask could also double as home decor, by the way. The elastic straps you will use to wear the mask on your face also serve as the hook for hanging it on the wall.
