Kane Hodder has played Jason, Freddy, Leatherface, AND Michael!


Kane Hodder has not only portrayed Jason Voorhees in four Friday the 13th films, he’s also technically been Freddy, Leatherface, and Michael Myers!

The legendary horror icon Kane Hodder is so deadly, that nearly every iconic slasher movie villain has had the Hodder treatment!

First, we’ll state the obvious, and talk about Hodder’s portrayals of Jason Voorhees across four movies. From Friday the 13th Part VII through Jason X, Hodder made the role his own and perhaps made his name synonymous with the character.

Most of Hodder’s fans already know that Hodder played Freddy Krueger, in a way, at the end of Jason Goes to Hell. At the film’s climax, Freddy’s glove emerges from the dirt and pulls under Jason’s hockey mask. No, that wasn’t Robert Englund’s hand inside of the glove… it was Kane Hodder’s!

That’s a pretty cool factoid, but the further you look into Kane’s work, it gets even more interesting. In 1990, Hodder worked as the stunt coordinator for the third Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie, subtitled Leatherface. Because of this, Kane himself put on the mask, and some shots of Leatherface in the movie are actually Mr. Hodder. In recent years, behind-the-scenes photos of the film have come out, showing Kane in the Leatherface garb.

More frightening WITHOUT the mask.

But playing three of horror history’s biggest baddies wasn’t good enough for Kane. He had to totally dominate all of the slasher films by portraying Michael Myers as well. But this time, it wouldn’t be for a feature film.

Filmmaker Adam Green, whom also directed Hodder as Victor Crowley in Hatchet, is a bit of a YouTuber. These days, he hosts what he calls the “Scary Sleepover” on his YouTube channel, inviting various horror stars to come hang out with him. But a few years ago, he also created a parody “deleted scene” from the original Halloween, showing how Michael Myers learned to drive.

Obviously, I don’t need to tell you by this point that it’s Kane underneath the mask.

So, who’s left for Kane to take on? Chucky? Perhaps if Brad Dourif weren’t still in the role. Still, I can’t help but wonder what a Good Guy doll would look like with Kane Hodder’s face.
