Jason Mask On Display At Museum

The EMP Museum in Seattle is hosting a genre movie exhibit Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film and there’s a familiar mask on show. This particular hock from Friday the 13th 2009 is on loan from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection.

Horror films scare us, so why do we like them? Vampires, monsters, and murderers have fascinated audiences for centuries. Today the movies that feature them dominate the box office, reinforcing the historical significance and cultural relevance of the horror genre. Organized by EMP, Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film examines the pivotal role that horror plays in the human experience. Three iconic horror directors–Roger Corman, John Landis, and Eli Roth–have curated a selection of their favorite films, providing a solid foundation on which audiences can safely explore the spectrum of cinematic horror, from its inception at the turn of the 20th century to the present day.

Visitors will get a chance to view iconic artifacts, including the script from Night of the Living Dead, the alien creature suit from Alien,the scavenger demon from Constantine, Jack Torrance’s axe from The Shining, the original “Gill Man” mask used in Creature from the Black Lagoon, Bram Stoker’s Dracula manuscript, and other horror film memorabilia.

Freddy’s glove from Nightmare on Elm St 5: The Dream Child is also on display. Check out the EMP Museum event page for more info.

  1. That’s my birthday, the lords’ day (leap year) I was told on my birthday by a drug dealer from La with a hockey stick I could be killed and was not a scientist. Peace

  2. No other hockey mask in the Friday the 13th movie series comes close to matching the mask from the remake! :-)
