Here's a nice sampling of Mexican lobbby cards for horror movies. What often stands out are the colors, use of fonts and their color, and positioning of the movie scene. Often the subject matter focuses on a female victim being assaulted by some creepazoid. I especially enjoy the masked wrestler-oriented cards, and their subject matter includes vampires, zombies, mummies, and witches, among other nasties.

Often the card condition is not ideal, but given the nature of these cards, it's hard to find them in very good and up condition. I preserve them using mylar sleeves and buffered backing boards that are acid free. Many of these lobby cards show acid browning, so I try to arrest that as much as possible.
