On yet another countdown list, I want to run through every Jason mask in existence and rank them from worst to best.
Let's get started..
12. Pre-Uber Mask - Jason X
At the very bottom of this list is the mask used in about 85% of Jason X. And the reason it's so low is because there really isn't anything special about it. Well besides the weird reason Jason still seemingly has the same mask from part three with the huge gash on it. Even though we literally watched that mask get telepathically pulled apart in chapter seven, three whole Friday's before this one.
11. The Battle Mask - Freddy vs Jason
As awesome as Jason looked in Freddy vs Jason, his mask still wasn't anything much different than what we had seen all those years before. I mean it's still iconic and all, just not anything really worth talking about after the movie is over.
10. First-Time-Zombie - Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives
Yeah sure this one is just another ordinary Jason mask, but it was refreshing to be able to see what was familiar after what happened in Friday the 13th Part 5: A New Beginning.
Speaking of that movie..
9. Imposter Jason - Friday the 13th part 5: A New Beginning
In Friday the 13th part five ''Jason'' strayed from the usual mask with the three red marks over the tan like color. But instead went for a paler mask, with two huge blue marks on the sides. And for those of you who don't know, the red marks were really changed to blue to signify a very important twist in the movie.
8. A New Take - Friday The 13th (2009)
After years and years of trips to Manhattan, Hell, Elm Street, and Space, it was really nice seeing Jason back at Crystal Lake. And of course going back to the basics means seeing the classic hockey mask once again. And in this one it has a really dirty, weathered sort of look to it. Which is a lot more realistic if you think about it.
7. Manhattan's Favorite Mask - Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan
Another change in the normal Jason mask came in Friday The 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan. This time around Jason's mask has a wet and dirty look to it, while the color of the mask itself had changed completely from a tan to a dark orange. Interesting..
6. A Mask Straight From Hell - Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday
This Jason mask is just flat out gruesome. Unlike most of the other Friday The 13th movies, this is one of the few mask that actually shows off some of the wear and tear it had been through in the movies before. In the movie you can see how the mask and its straps have sort of embedded themselves into Jason's bubbly head. I think I can definitely say this is one of his best looks, it's just to bad we didn't see it very often in the actual movie.
5. Looks Familiar - Friday The 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter
Okay so I'm going to contradict myself and what I said about the mask on the bottom of this list, because this mask isn't really different at all. I put it up high on this list because this is the sequel where we really got the modern image of Jason. In part two is was a sack, then three introduced the hockey mask, but four is where Jason and his mask really signified its place in cinema history.
4. The Beginning - Friday The 13th Part 2
And in this part of the Friday the 13th franchise, we got the sack head Jason. Why is this one so high up on the list you ask? Because quite frankly, it is actually scarier than the hockey mask. I'd definitely be running a lot faster if sack-head-Jason was chasing me instead of the hockey masked one.
3. First Time For Everything - Friday The 13th Part 3
What you're looking at above ladies and gentlemen is the very first screened Jason mask, it automatically got a high spot on this list just for that reason. I mean it's a classic, the tan color, minor scratches, and red marks are all there in perfect condition.
2. Uber-Jason - Jason X
The scariest entry in the franchise so fa... KIDDING. This Jason movie is so far above ridiculous it isn't even funny, and in a weird way I still enjoy it. The mask used for most of the movie is at the very bottom of this list, but in that same movie we get the Uber-Jason mask, which is here at number two. And no one can deny its awesomeness, I mean after he walks through the smoke, and after you see his mask up close, you have no choice but to pause and just enjoy it for a minute.
1. New Blood, Old Mask - Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood
This ladies and gentlemen is the number one Jason mask in the franchise so far. What's not to love about it? If you ever wanted the dirtiest, grimiest, most beaten up Jason ever, then this is the one. The mask itself is still the same one he had from part three, so naturally after being killed three times you aren't going to look so good after a while. His mask has lost all of its color, it has more than a few scratches on there, and really gives off that barely-on-there kind of feeling, you know?
