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!

Excellent.

Kane Hodder narrates about his current life as a stunt-man and actor, whilst including his biography from childhood onward. Plenty of Jason Voorhees behind-the-scenes as well!

wow

i cant even begin to tell how much fun i had listening to this book. being a life long fan of the friday the 13th movies, my family and i always loved kane hodder as jason. being named after Jason and growing up with horror movies, it was amazing hearing tales about the film's and behind the scenes stuff. i also now have a new perspective on this man. one that i have been talking to just about everyone about. he goes on at one point to talk about choking his fans that he meets, one of those fans was my dad and it really made me miss the bastard while he talked about that. don't pass this book up

Unexpected, Honest, and Great

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I know many horror movie fans and I believe they will like or love this book.

What other book might you compare Unmasked: The True Life Story of the World's Most Prolific Cinematic Killer to and why?

None. I cannot think of many actors or people associated to Hollywood who would be as open and honest as Kane Hodder.

Have you listened to any of Kane Hodder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, he has no other audio performances.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction, but there were many headshaking moments as well as head shakers and chucklers.

Any additional comments?

I had no idea Kane was from the same area I am and I did not know about his horrific burn accident and subsequent medical torture.

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!

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.
