Friday the 13th Posters

The art work for Friday the 13th may not be the best thing since sliced bread but there is something oddly attractive about it, whether it's the reliance on text for the earlier films or the implicit belief that the title and the iconic hockey mask are enough to get the cinemas filled. Probably what I like the best about the posters here, though, is that there is a clear rhythm to them, which gives out the feeling that Friday the 13th is really a kooky TV show or even an animated series. Funny enough, there is a kooky TV show titled Friday the 13th, which has nothing to do with the films except for the producers and the oddly similar poster/DVD art, and Jason Voorhees has made quite a few comic book appearances. Of course, this is not the complete set of posters for the film series, but then again, would you really miss anything to do with that moronic crapfest called Jason X? Yeah, that's what I thought.
