Advertising: 'Jason Lives' Japanese Home Video Display

One of the great things about being a collector in this film franchise hobby is seeing what is being used to promote films in other countries.

One of our long time friends, daizab, has been sharing items from his Japanese Friday the 13th collection for many years now and has shared some awesome marketing and promotional items created for the Japanese home video market. One of those items is a display for Japanese video stores for Jason Lives: Friday The 13th Part 6. Below is a fold out cardboard display that was used to promote the film in those stores.

Notice on the right side of the display, little promos for the previous four films in the Friday the 13th franchise. Since these were distributed through CIC video, the original 1980 film does not appear as that film is distributed through Warner Brothers internationally on home video. Also notice on the display, a 3D knife that sticks out near the eye hole of the hockey mask. It looks to be a tiny homage to Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter!

Anyone who follows this website knows that we are big fans of Japanese promotional materials and this display does nothing to deter that thinking. Big thanks to daizab for the images! Enjoy the photos below and let us know what you think.
