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.

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.

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!

Fantastic fun with a lot of heart!

The raw detail, unabashed emotion and humor really makes you feel as if you’re following Kane’s story. I am a huge fan of his and the franchise and this audio version is the only way to go! It gives the stories a real palpable feel and connection that won’t come from any page. If you’re a fan of horror and dark humor (with a lot of touching realism) then you will also enjoy this book!

Fantastic Book

This book is a fantastic listen. Kane holds nothing back. The depiction of his burn and aftercare was horrific and engaging. His details of playing Jason are everything you wanted to hear him say about it. The emotion in the events the lead to him leaving the Jason character were heartbreaking. And to learn he has done so much more and worked on so many more big films. It’s just a great read

Perhaps the Best Book I've Ever Read

For some reason, I've always been appealed toward the horror genre. Given that, and how Kane also dealt with bullies, I felt like I immediately connected with the author. Not to sound weird, but I feel like this book came to me just at the right time. This is far more than just an expose of a Hollywood stuntman who played one of films' most iconic roles. This is the story of an authentic human being enduring tragedy and offering hope and encouragement to others. Kane's reading voice is so fantastic and it's like having him in your living room telling his tale. He really comes across as the kind of guy you'd love to meet for coffee and talk with more about film and life in general. He is beyond brave. I now have a much better picture of the man behind the mask, and I know there are many parts of this book that I will continue referring and referencing in the future.

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.

Great book for Friday 13th fans

Great book. Kane is such a bad ass.

Very sad in parts - being bullied and hearing how he got his burns is horrible to listen to.

Great hearing how he got into the business.

5 out of 5 for me.

Met him once and his such a nice bloke.
