Jason Voorhees Pancake Art Celebrates Friday the 13th

Jan 17, 2023

A Friday the 13th fan celebrates the day with a delicious artistic rendering of hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees made out of pancakes.

Friday the 13th pancake art resurrects Jason to celebrate the day. The Friday the 13th franchise began with the original film of the same name in 1980, which was followed by 9 sequels, a remake, a crossover film with Freddy Kruege of A Nightmare on Elm Street, an unrelated TV series, comic books, video games, and more. Although he wasn’t the antagonist of the original film, the hockey-masked serial killer has become synonymous with the franchise, stalking the shores of Crytal Lake, New Jersey (and sometimes Manhattan or the decks of a spaceship) and murdering as many young folks as he can with a variety of sharp implements and sleeping bags.

On Instagram, user Laura Rise-Against celebrated today’s Friday the 13th by bringing Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees to life in a rather unusual medium: pancakes.

According to the caption, Jason’s face itself is made from a blueberry pancake, pointed at the top and bottom to emulate the curve of a hockey mask, with two holes dug out for the eyes. The details on the mask and the surrounding frame are created with fruit in a dazzling breakfast display.

Why Friday the 13th Remains Beloved After 40 Years

Although there hasn’t been a Friday the 13th entry since the 2009 remake, Jason remains an iconic figure who resurfaces every Halloween and Friday the 13th. Part of the reason the franchise has endured for so long is the fact that it helped kick off the initial slasher boom of the 1980s. Although predecessors like Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho in 1960, Bob Clark’s Black Christmas in 1974, and John Carpenter’s Halloween in 1978 paved the way for the genre’s rise, Friday the 13th’s release in 1980 was the catalyst, making a huge profit off the back of its gruesome gore effects provided by Tom Savini. This proved to producers that low-budget slashers could see a huge return on investment and led to the creation of a cavalcade of imitators including The Burning, The Prowler, My Bloody Valentine, and hundreds more.

Although he wouldn’t officially become the killer until 1981’s Friday the 13th Part 2 or don his signature hockey mask until 1982’s Friday the 13th Part 3-D, Jason became synonymous with the slasher genre over the course of the 1980s, starring in eight films over the course of the decade. He rose to prominence alongside Halloween’s Michael Myers and Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger to become one of the titans of terror. It also helps his long-standing stature that his iconic mask is both creepy in its blankness and easy for fans to replicate for their own costumes.

What’s Next for the Friday the 13th Franchise?

Jason and his exploits have been dormant for over a decade, partially due to a copyright lawsuit tying up the license for Friday the 13th. However, the lawsuit has been settled and it was recently announced that Bryan Fuller would be producing the prequel series Crystal Lake for Peacock. With that project on the horizon, Jason’s future is looking bright, so fans may feel like having their very own pancake celebrations today as well.
