Production Photos of Jeannine Taylor's Death

This one is pretty creepy
Here is a small collection of some photos that I have of Marcie's (Jeannine Taylor) in Friday the 13th (1980). I haven't a clue where I obtained most of them, but I did get some from Fangoria and Famous Monster magazines. In some of them you will notice that there is blood on the backdrop curtain and some there isn't. I'm not sure why; if it was because of multiple takes (and the least bloody one made it to the final American cut) or if it was blood added after the initial impact in the first take, but not shown onscreen. 

At any rate, this death is easily the best of the series and the one that always stuck in my mind as a kid. It was very well executed by Savini and co.
