Lifetime Achievement Award: Kane Hodder

To the hardcore horror fan, Kane Hodder needs no introduction. For many die hard fans of the Friday the 13th series, he is known as the REAL Jason Voorhees. After all, Kane has played the role of the slasher from Crystal Lake more than any other actor who has donned the famous hockey mask. He is one of the scariest men in horror, and we believe he is the only actor who portrays a slasher who has actually killed people in real life. Kane is also great to his fans. He often makes appearances at horror conventions, including the Monster Mania Convention held in Cherry Hill that we attend every year. He is a real nice guy in real life even though he looks like he just got done eating a baby. He was made a legend with his work as Jason Voorhees and various other movies including BTK, Ted Bundy, and Hatchet. We believe the first ever Blog of the Dead Lifetime Achievement Award should go to Kane Hodder for all the afforementioned reasons. He is truly a legend in the horror genre.
