Friday the 13th is scary. Even if you don't "believe," you're thinking twice when a stray black cat scampers by you, and you're taking extra care not to break even the tiniest of mirrors. After all, who knows where a vintage hockey mask-wearing serial murderer may be lurking?

Below, a collection of photos showing the Jason Voorhees mask as it was originally intended to be used: on the ice, protecting hockey players' mugs. Take a look — and don't wander under any ladders.
