What Is The Story Behind Friday The 13th, Why The Goalie Mask
For a long time there were only a few monsters and scary people. The phantom of the opera, Dracula, Frankenstein, werewolf, the Mummy, and ghosts. Then in the 80's we got a whole slew of new monsters to be scared of. Most of them were created by Wes Craven. I wanted to bring them all to the forefront. Here's Jason, from Friday the 13th
The funny part is Jason is known for his hockey mask, but the mask didn't come about right away, there is a story behind that too. Why doesn't he show his face? Well, he does, but there is a reason he wears a mask. Why the goalie mask? No reason why the monster chose it, it's a director's choice, and a good one at that.
Here's the story behind the movie, character, and why he does what he does.
