Film: Unmasked Part 25

Unmasked Part 25 (a.k.a. The Hand of Death and Jackson's Back) is a 1989 horror comedy.

Jackson is a typical Slasher Movie killer; a man with a deformed face under a hockey mask and constant murder in his mind, whose misdeeds are being chronicled by The Hand of Death film series. One day, his world turns around when he falls in love with a blind girl named Shelly, and starts questioning his way of life.


  • The Alcoholic: Jackson's father spends his time drinking and reminiscing about old times.
  • Big "NO!": Learning that the 26th installment of The Hand of Death franchise has been released, Jackson falls to his knees and starts screaming "NO!"
  • Broken Heel: As Jackson confronts a victim in the woods, he lampshades this trope by telling her that this is going to happen, and it does.
    Jackson: There's no sense in you trying to run for it, really. You'll get ten feet, and run into a branch, or stumble over a root.
    (The girl runs, and stumbles)
    Jackson: See, I told you!

  • Freudian Excuse: Jackson's terrible childhood is what turned him into the killer he is now.
  • Hidden Depths: Jackson loves poetry, especially the works of Lord Byron.
  • I Love the Dead: Jackson's first time was with a camp counselor, or rather, her corpse.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Jackson inherited his murderous traits from his father.
