Top 10 Horror Movie MasksThese are the faces that bring fear into the hearts of millions.
The third installment of Friday The 13th film franchise forever changes the way we would use sports equipment. Jason Voorhees dons his classic mask for the first time in this film and thus nightmares were born. The relative harmlessness behind a hockey mask is replaced with homicidal blood as Jason kills teenager after horney teenager. Its an iconic horror mask that brings to menace, murder and machetes.
His mask is awesome and badass. And Jason is well suited for it. His machete also goes well with him and his mask.
As a general role, cannibals tend to be a little off putting. A cannibal wearing a mask and carrying a chainsaw is probably the worst. However, it's the mask made of skin of his victims that truly drives home the bone chilling fright of Leatherface. Of course, the chainsaw and his mask of size pretty much means its death.
Who knew that a Captain Kirk mask could haunt the dreams of children and most adults for generation? Armed with almost supernatural killing abilities, Michael Myers is the killer that keeps on killing. And his super creepy mask completed with matted hair and hollow wise delivers the kind of terror to get a night light. As if that would help.
This is actually a Captain Kirk mask painted white.
Just awesome. Enough said.
The Ghostface mask seems like it was designed to inspire the perfectly practical scare. The dastardly eyeholes, the contorted mouth, the black and white colouring, it's not a mask that you want to see at your window or your door. Aside from the campiness, a clever film, the ghostface mask has sharp killing and even sharper knives.
This mask is based on Edvard Munch's they Scream.
Pigs don't generally inspire fear. But combined to someone unsettling representation of a swine's head with brutal deaths and gut wrenching horror follows. Worn by Jigsaw and his accomplices to hide their identities and representing the zodiac year in which the killer began his reign of terror this brusive disguise dials up the dread in a horrifying scenario. Seeing that pig mask is pretty much assigned that you're already sued.
The fact that this otherwise cool, calm and collected middle age gentleman has to be restrained for the strange muscle pretty much says it all. Seeing with cannibalistic intent and the curious appetite of 1,000 stoners, Hannibal the cannibals mask serves as a reminder that he can kill you whenever he wants and eat your organs.
This mask is a fairly recent edition to the horror Jarum but it doesn't skip on to scary. It might be the shattered human jaw combined with the crack of the cheeks or the creepy babyface doll that only works with barbed wire or it might be that there is someone behind the mask but this is definitely the films main freak out.
Auditioning for a movie year role is terrifying enough, but when you add a murderer into the scene, things become slightly more intimidating. The hag mask is pretty terror in using with its deep, hollow wise frown of murderous intent a sickle, a few rival actresses and lethal determination bring new meeting to the term fierce competition.
The films overall zone is hidden by an appearance of a mask with a horrible makeup job. When it appeared with a violent yellow raincoat, well unsettling is an understatement.In the hands of a child, it's kind of eerie maybe a little bit disturbing, but on the face of a killer, that ghastly eyeshadow is sinister is the mask of night terror.
There are subterranean monsters, disfigured humanoids, undead creatures but the mask serial killer takes the place of them all. This movie may have flown under the radar. The mask worn by the films villain, Dr Decker is clearly the star of the show. The button eyes and zipper mouth really up the factor which is saying something as he is already a nightwilling murderer.
