Publisher's Summary

Unmasked documents the unlikely true story of a boy who was taunted and beaten relentlessly by bullies throughout his childhood. Kane only escaped his tormentors when he moved to a tiny island in the South Pacific where he lived for all of his teen years. After living shirtless in a jungle for a while, he headed back to America where he fell in love with doing stunts - only to have his love burn him, literally. For the first time ever, Kane tells the true story of the horrific burn injury that nearly killed him at the start of his career. The entire heart-wrenching, inspirational story of his recovery, the emotional and physical damage it caused, his fight to break back into the industry that almost killed him, and his triumphant rise to become a film legend are told in Kane's own powerful voice. Take a peek inside the head of the man behind the mask. Be inspired by his triumphant comeback, and laugh at his on-set hijinks as you unmask the world's most prolific cinematic killer.

Absoultely Amazing

this was, by far, one of the best books to cross my path in a very long time. I have been a fan of Kane Hodder since I was a teenager but this book made me fall in love with him all over again and in a completely different way. I don't mean that in any other way but with the upmost respect. his story and journey are such an inspiration. outside of my own father and husband, i cant think of a better example of a real and true man!!! kudos to you Kane! keep kicking ass and taking names later!

One of the best

I have always been a fan of Kane Hodder. Getting to listen to him tell his story was amazing! The way he tells his story is so relaxed, it is like having him talk to you while enjoying a beer & steak! Great book, great story, just plain great!

Jason is all i can say.

An excellent book and look into the life of one of the most memorable onscreen killers. This read had me laughing, wincing, and near crying at points. Kane Hodder is an in your face truth kinda guy which is refreshing change from other biographies I've read which tend to be more formal in their telling. I actually felt as though this was a one on one with one of the most talented stuntmen/actors ever to grace Hollywood. So if you are a fan of the latter Friday the 13th movies or Kane himself you owe it to yourself to get this book.

Not what you would expect

While this isn't great literature Kane who also narrates this just hits his marks and tells the truth . Knew little about him aside from behind a horror icon and working stunt man . Was surprised to see he is a very dedicated and caring guy towards what he loves but if not then get out of his way .
This goes into very humiliating times in his life and how he is his best ally and worst enemy .
This story is funny and tragic and a great take for blue collars like me who want to still believe hard work pays off .
Thanks Kane !

Fascinating look at the life (so far!) of Kane

What made the experience of listening to Unmasked: The True Life Story of the World's Most Prolific Cinematic Killer the most enjoyable?

It was a nice balance of family history, stories, details and anecdotes that never dragged.

What did you like best about this story?

The horrific yet fascinating detail of Kane's accident was grueling to listen to, I can't even imagine what it was like to go through for real! Yet it never felt as if it were shocking for shock's sake. It was very well put across.

What does Kane Hodder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

It's always great to hear an author read his own story, and despite some fleeting moments where it felt like he was reading (which of course, he was), most of the time it felt like Kane was just talking to you. I like that.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Jason's back!

Any additional comments?

Having Adam Green read his own introduction was a nice touch. All in all it was a great look at Kane's life and profession, I'd listen to him again for sure.
