Lobby Cards: French Friday The 13th Part 2 Card Set

Those that have read our previous stories on memorabilia are very aware of the various Lobby Cards that were created for the Friday the 13th franchise. Lobby Cards were created to promote films that were being released in theatres. Theatre owners would place these cards on tables in the lobby or hang them in poster cases. Eventually, they were phased out in the United States and were not used after the late 1980's. However, other countries outside the U.S. continued to produce the cards and utilized images that were more rare or unseen in normal print publication.

Friday The 13th Part 2 had a wide assortment of cards distributed to international territories and one set of cards were sent to be used in French cinemas. Below is five of the eight card set used to promote the second film in the franchise. It's great to see classic imagery utilized to promote the film with a cool French label on each card using the phrase "Le tueur du vendredi". The phrase translates to "The killer of Friday".

This is actually a pretty good set of cards depicting numerous scenes from the film. What do you think of this set and what are your thoughts on the film?
