If you are a horror fanatic, then you probably know about Kane Hodder. If you don't, Hodder played the iconic slasher, Jason Voorhees in "Friday the 13th VII: The New Blood" through "Jason X."
Other than playing Jason Voorhees though, Kane Hodder has been in other films, video games, and even TV shows. Another big franchise that Hodder is apart of is for the "Hatchet" movies where is plays Victor Crowley, where you guessed it, he goes around killing people with a hatchet.
Besides being on a screen, Hodder is a really cool guy! I've been lucky enough to meet him a few times as well as even played the "Friday the 13th: The Game" with him in Salem for the release.
If you've ever wanted to meet Kane Hodder, or just want to meet him again, you finally have your chance. Kane Hodder will be one of the celebrity guests this year (2023) at the Maine Comic and Toy Con happening at the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland.
This is not the first time that Kane Hodder is coming to New England. In previous years, Kane has been a guest at Count Orlok's Nightmare Gallery in Salem, MA, he has also been a guest at Rock and Shock (horror convention) and even had appearances at Spooky World.
