Slasher masks of the week vol5

Five slasher masks, randomly chosen, falls under my verdict, every week. 

here's this week's meat:

Dark Night of the Scarecrow
Bubba didn't do that heinous crime, but Bubba did put on a rather memorable mask. Pathetic looking yet creepy, he dons a hollow mouthed scarecrow mask that silently screams his plea for justice. Nice work, Bubba, see you at the other side!

Friday the 13th (part 3 onwards)
wow, lucky! Though i never quite understood why a hockey mask, Jason does look badass enough to make it work. White, emotionless, just like the Myers mask, but an added points for its tougher material.

Jason X
...aaaaand, remorse. As a sad attempt to update his mask, Uber Jason dons a mask, or gets a new face, made out of steel. cool, right? Not if it resembles a duck's bill or a groin cup...

Don't Go In the House
An underrated chiller of a slasher, Donald "Donny" Kohler gets a fire retardant suit as a disguise...well, disguise is an overstatement, he only wears it so he couldn't get burned and he only wore it so little time on screen it's hardly a disguise at all. Well, he wears a suit and it kinda works, but not that creative enough.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (series)
Skin masks are his turf, and his alone, and many others who tries to do this hardly had teh same creativity as Leatherface had on his works. The remakes had a juicier selection of the face masks, which I agree better made than the very original film.
