Mondo…Thursday? – “I Declare War”

Drafthouse Films release, I Declare War, is about “a group of 12-year-olds playing a game of capture the flag in the  woods. Things get dangerously blurred between make-believe and reality, even though they’re only armed with nothing more than twigs, their imaginations.” This looks like a great movie, and I’m excited to see it. There a point

“Assault on Precinct 13” 1976 Coming from Scream Factory

Be wary of some cult titles, especially ones that involve a police or cop storyline. They tend to be fairly boring, and often laughably, downright mellow dramatic. Who gave these dudes the green light for this crap? But that’s not how I should start this announcement. The awesome collector’s edition of the classic, criminally underrated

Mondo Monday – The World’s End and Shaun of the Dead

This epically friggin’ awesome Shaun of the Dead print is by the incredibly talented Tyler Stout, and is pretty much one of the coolest Mondo pieces of late. When I think Mondo art, THIS is what I imagine – expansive, narrative, and intriguing. It’s epic is every way, right down to the color. Check out his

Fab Finds – Ugly Phones, Butt-Stuck Poodles, Cool Posters, & More

Found on Fab.com. We call them Fab Finds: Oppressive 70s Double Sided Tanker Desk This beast is reminiscent of the seventh grade, a hideous time in most people’s lives. The color and clunky metal design welcome thoughts of punishment and algebra, and no doubt make that awful, hollow metal sound when the drawers are opened

Mondo Monday – Predator, Prometheus, The Thing

The predator print by Ash Thorp is pretty ghastly. While it doesn’t feature former governor AAH-Nald, a fan of the movie and a fan of monsters in general will like this on their wall. It may not be a welcoming guest piece, so of course it belongs in a spare bedroom to give them night terrors.

Mondo Monday – Goes Psycho, Gets Vertigo

Alfred Hitchcock is probably one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. Upon their release, many of his movies entered the English idiom almost immediately. You cannot say “psycho” to most people without conjuring the horrifying shower scene, the Bates Motel, or that sinister face of Anthony Perkins’. Paying a much deserved homage, Mondo will release
