Holy shit where do I begin? To Hell and Back is an incredibly harrowing story of a stuntman overcoming a dehumanizing childhood filled with torment and bullying growing up. After surviving a near-death burn accident, he worked his way up through Hollywood, leading to his ultimate rise as Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th series and making countless moviegoers forever terrified of hockey masks and summer camp. If one of the worlds strongest man does not bring you to tears watching his life story then you better check your heart.
I do not remember a time I have ever been this moved by a tragic story with a rather sweet outcome. I knew the story about how he was burned and how he overcame that but wow what he went through makes you wonder how he is alive today. But I never knew about the bullying when he was younger and that alone makes you choke up. Even my wife stopped what she was doing and was sucked into this man's life.
