Friday the 13th, Part 4: The Final Chapter, Jason split head SFX animatronic Bust Torso and bloody shirt

original movie prop

SFX Jason Torso from Friday the 13th The Final Chapter     A SFX Jason Torso from the 1984 horror film Friday the 13th The Final Chapter.  In the film’s climax, Jason is “killed” in this installment by falling onto his own machete, which then proceeds to slice through one side of his head entirely.  This particular piece, built by Special Make-Up Effects Artist Tom Savini and crew, can be matched to a behind-the-scenes shot in Savini’s book “Grande Illusions Book II From the Films of Tom Savini.”     The bust is made of foam latex exterior with interior mechanics connected to remote control mechanisms which are still presently attached at bottom and allowed for puppeteers to control Jason’s head and facial movements.  It features the original shirt from the production which has several dried faux blood stains and cuts throughout.  The head of the piece is made of fiberglass under the foam latex and features a hinged top which can be opened to reveal the inner mechanics.

    Due to heavy production use and age, this piece has areas of heavy wear around the top of the head with some chipping of the foam latex; the head has staining throughout due to the large amount of fake blood used for the effect (see photos).  Overall the piece measures approximately 25” x 23” (64cm x 58cm) and remains in fair condition.
