Sculpt Or Die Making 'Zaxxon' Mask From 'Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter'

One of the more nostalgic scenes in the franchise is when Tommy Jarvis is playing the video game Zaxxon in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. Anyone who grew up in the 1980's can appreciate the game, but the scene also introduces an anonymous Alien mask that Tommy is wearing while playing the game and it has gained a little bit of a following in the mask collecting community over the years. The same mask was also used less than a year later for the production of Friday the 13th: A New Beginning for which an older Tommy Jarvis takes the mask with him to the Pinehurst halfway house and uses it to teach Reggie "the reckless" a lesson.

The Alien mask used in both films was solely created by effects legend Alec Gillis over one night, according to Tom Savini, and now artist Brandon Scott Murphree and his Sculpt Or Die label is recreating the mask.

Below is an in-progress shot of the mask being created along with a really cool poster using the mask being created by Sculpt Or Die. Please visit their Facebook and Instagram pages to keep up on the progress of this mask and other projects.
