Thats sweet how the cat is clawing into the pumpkin.

I think it's cool how horror movies were such a big deal back then.

i wish i had an account on e-bay but im afraid if i did id be out on the street cause all id do is spend money on there. i clipped out one from a hockey rink near a friends of freddy and jason but i can only hope of finding something as sweet as that one the picture is awesome especially as everyone said with the cat. how much did you pay out of curiousity?

That is a very cool ad. The seller is also selling a Halloween 4 ad aswell (or was, if it wasn't already bought)

I too agree that the ad is very sweet looking. I havn't seen that particular ad either, but then again, I have never really looked into vintage ads. The cat is so cool and unique for a Halloween ad so very nice find and congrats! ;)

Nice ad you have there, Gerry. The black cat on the pumpkin looks pretty neat! I like it. Nice piece of memorabilia to add to your collection. :)

It's cool and all, but isn't it really an old add clipped from a newspaper? I hope you did not pay too much for it Gerry. I will look cool however with all your other H2 stuff.

It's ok Clark i was well aware that it was an old ad clipped from a newspaper.

Personally speaking i would think Halloween ads in Newspapers from the year the movie came out would be pretty rare.At the end of the day it's the original ad it's not a reprint.

Plus i had never seen this ad before & it just looked unusal

I wouldn't say i paid too much for it but there was at least 3 other people intrested in the auction.

cheers

Come to think of it, I remember seeing a picture quite similar to that before with the cat on top. It's been a long time though so it slipped my mind at first. Nevertheless, Gerry, that is an awesome, and as you said, it's not easy to find 1981 articles from the newspaper. Good job. I like it.

Great Ad!

Would be sweet to see that cat's head impaled with Michael's knife though...

Only nowdays you piss off that whole PETA Klan.

P.S. I love cats...DEAD ONES!

I think the cat adds a unique touch. It makes the pumpkin creepier.

Exactly what I was thinking. It's reminds me of the common elements that make up the Halloween theme- ghosts, skeletons, witches, black cats. I also like how they added those scratch marks on the pumpkin from the cat.

Thanks for sharing, Gerry.
