|Shelly (Larry Zerner) and his beloved gag hockey mask|
I still say the way he obtained the mask in Part III is, and will always be the most infamous and epic. It's really hard to top that. Here's my rankings:
#4) Jason takes a hockey mask from Jim on the house boat: What are the odds that there is yet one more hockey mask replica with an axe crack? What are the chances that mask will be in the same place as Jason?
#3) Tommy Jarvis gives Jason back his mask: I should have rated this last because I am not a huge Jason Lives fan at all. Jason's hockey mask was odd shaped and of course for some odd reason Tommy has this mask? Or is it a shitty replica?
#2) Jason finds a hockey mask in an old shed: After Jason kills a horny man in a shed he finds a hockey mask, dons it and checks himself out. I reckon this could have been much cheesier, but at least Jason didn't raise his arms and breathe in and out deep like Kane Hodder.
#1) Jason kills Shelly and steals his prop mask: This will always be the best donning, this came out of left fiend and I bet nobody expected it much. It's more characteristic of a killer like Jason to nonchalantly put on a mask and go about his business.
