Continuity has never been a huge concern in the Friday The 13th franchise, but I don’t hold that up as necessarily being a bad thing. If these films were concerned with logic, they’d be way less fun – so I’m happy they celebrate inconsistency from the ground up!
While many F13 films do attempt to bridge with the past in regard to Jason’s mask (that cleaver mark in the forehead being the most prevalent), others completely disregard what came before. Sometimes his mask is clean, sometimes dirty. Sometimes it’s an entirely different design! And then you have Jason Goes To Hell, what the hell is going on there?! Is his face growing around the mask?
Check out the in-sequence collection below – and see if YOU can spot all the minor differences!!!
JASON GOES TO HELL
Seriously. It’s like his head is growing around the mask. The reverse shots are even worse, his cranium his huge! If we know one thing about Jason, it’s that he doesn’t have enough brain to warrant a head that big.
