MONDO TURNS ITS TALENTS TO WES CRAVEN IN LATEST “DIRECTOR’S SERIES” POSTERS

Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream get the Mondo treatment first, to be followed by Swamp Thing, The Hills Have Eyes and Last House on the Left. From the official press release:

Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is excited to announce Wes Craven as the next filmmaker for their “Director’s Series” featuring both classic and contemporary films from the master of suspense. Mondo kicks things off with Alex Pardee’s clever and gruesome takes on Wes Craven’s two icons of fright – Freddy & Ghostface – for A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Additional titles scheduled for the Mondo treatment include Swamp Thing, The Hills Have Eyes, and The Last House on the Left.

“It’s an honor and great fun to be chosen by Mondo to participate in their Director’s Series. I think the posters brim with wild imagination and sly humor. Thank you so much – I’m pleased my films have earned a place in your gallery!” said director Wes Craven.

“Answering the phone. Taking a nap. Going to the movies. One man has made each of these seemingly innocent and normal activities TERRIFYING. Wes Craven has been traumatizing audiences for years and we are very proud to add this master of horror and suspense to the ever growing ranks of Mondo Director’s Series,” said Justin Ishmael, Mondo Creative Director.
