“On Friday The 13th, They Began To Die Horribly, One……By One”
Distinctive Alex Ebel artwork makes this original 1980 country of original US one sheet movie poster for Sean S. Cunningham’s slasher masterpiece “Friday the 13th” extremely sought after by collector’s of the horror genre. Introducing Jason Voorhees as one of the triumvirate of 80’s slasher horror icons that includes Wes Craven’s Freddy Kruger & John Carpenter’s Michael Myers. A multitude of sequels, match ups and remakes have been released since this premiered but none match this genre defining classic. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored example displays and presents to excellent effect with only minimal age and handling wear with bright & unfaded colours. It represents a fine piece of sought after cinema memorabilia from one of the defining ‘slasher’ flick Film’s.
Trivia: The filmmakers never intended to make this the launching pad for the franchise that followed. According to Victor Miller, Jason Voorhees was only meant as a plot device, and not intended to continue on his mother’s grisly work.
