Have we mentioned lately how much we love the roster of artists at Mondo? Following the Texas Frightmare Weekend, and the Alamo Drafthouse’s Summer of 1982 Series, they have released some very special leftover posters for sale.
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer gets a fresh take from Australian artist Ken Taylor, infusing his rock-star stylings into Michael Rooker’s visage. The beautiful and haunting simplicity of the poster belies the horror and visceral violence that lies beneath the surface, much like Henry himself! There were a limited amount of 245 of these as a 24″ x 36″ screen print.
Jason Edmiston tackles Conan the Barbarian, reminding us of why Arnie is the only one who should ever bear the mantle. Finally, Jay Shaw’s poster for A Nightmare on Elm Street is reminiscent of the poster for Steve McQueen’s Shame, except instead of the lingering possibility of a tussle in the sheets with Michael Fassbender’s penis, there is the stylised rendering of Robert Englund’s head. Sleep on that.
If you want these, follow Mondo News on Twitter to find out the sale dates. Be quick, as these tend to disappear in minutes, only to mysteriously reappear on eBay moments later!
