Have you ever wondered what Jason Voorhees would actually look like after he came crawling back from the fiery depths of Hell to continue wreaking havoc at Camp Crystal Lake? Luckily for us, we have a great interpretation of what that might look like thanks to an exclusive DLC skin for Friday the 13th: The Game designed by special effects artist Tom Savini.
In the 9th Friday the 13th installment, Jason Goes to Hell, our masked serial killer looks fairly normal…for him. The hockey mask has melted directly onto his face, becoming fused with his skin. It’s a bloody, inflamed mess around the area where the mask cuts into the skin but he more or less looks the same. In the movie, the rest of his body remains char free, and he still sports a healthy looking glow. However, the images released by Gun Media of their interpretation of Jason escaping from Hell takes the concept of being burned alive and pushes it to the extremes. He looks way worse for the wear, and much more terrifying.
Revealed on Friday the 13th: The Game’s Facebook page, several images show Tom Savini’s depiction of Jason after he escaped Hell. They’re incredibly brutal and we love it. Unmasked, his eyes have become literal pockets of angry fire that seek vengeance. His complexion is blackened and charred, and the skin around his mouth is melted and also full of flames. He sports several cuts around his face (possibly courtesy of a certain Mr. Krueger), whereas the rest of his body is equal parts fiery and full of spikes.
The “Hell Jason” skin is available for pre-order, and will be shipped digitally for your platform of choice in early 2017. The DLC add on also includes a unique weapon. We were already excited to be able to play Jason, but this exclusive add-on has increased our desire to scare the life out of campers.
