The Friday The 13th Hockey Mask FAQ

We have a lot of fans write into the website asking where they can get a movie accurate replica hockey mask from their favorite films in the franchise as well as what material the hockey masks were made out of during production. This information can get a bit tricky, depending on who you talk to in the world of effects and replica artistry. After this past Friday The 13th, with so many requests for the same information coming in, we decided we would create a FAQ that would outline the basics and hopefully point people in the correct direction.
