Mondo does more than just posters. In addition to making cool art and shirts, Mondo Tees also makes and sells vinyl LP soundtracks for cult classic movies with a great soundtrack. In the past they've made vinyl pressings for The Deadly Spawn, Poltergeist, this year's Maniac remake and most of Studio Ghibli's films. Up next is John Carpenter's Halloween, an already iconic soundtrack that gets the ultimate release with a package that includes two LPs with stunning art by Phantom City Creative. The soundtrack includes all 28 tracks from the original 1978 John Carpenter horror classic. If you're a big Carpenter fan, this is a must buy. Here are a few photos of the new Halloween soundtrack cover/case and the actual vinyl, as debuted by GQ: If you need background music, here's the infamous "Halloween" theme that has become part of pop culture: This new vinyl release of John Carpenter's Halloween »

Earlier today we alerted you to the special Halloween screenings at the American Cinematheque. They aren't the only Halloween game in Los Angeles. Cinefamily has announced their 30 midnights program for Halloween. Last year the focus was on video nasties; this year it is the United States of Horror, a "cross-country death trip, with each night celebrating a different state of the Union, and regional horror filmmaking of all stripes. Whether it's unknown directors toiling away on backyard labors of love, or itinerant auteurs falling in love with and shooting an unfamiliar landscape as if it was their own, this series' thirty entries provide a vibrant overview of our nation's hidden horror history." Sounds way safer than taking an actual roadtrip.

One came from the deep reaches of space and the other came from Chinatown, but both are capable of multiplying and destroying humanity at a rapid rate. Tomorrow, we will be releasing prints for two of our favorite 80's creature movies. Gremlins by Drew Millward and The Deadly Spawn by Phantom City Creative, respectively.

Though the Alamo Drafthouse already declared 1982 “the greatest summer of movies ever” with their Summer of 1982 screening series last year (which we giddily participated in ourselves), the team behind the very successful screening series has now conceded that, hey, 1983 was pretty sweet, too. In celebration of another great year at the movies, the Drafthousers are now rolling out their brand new Summer of 1983 screening series, one that features the “crown jewel of that summer,” no less than Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi on the big screen. While all the titles featured as part of the Summer of 1983 will show in all Alamo Drafthouse markets (Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, TX; Denver, Co; Kansas City, Mo; and Ashburn and Winchester, Va), Return of the Jedi will only play in Austin at the Drafthouse Slaughter Lane on May 25. To celebrate, the theater promises no less than “an all-day, galactic-sized »

More news from the mega-talented folks at Mondo, this time from their music department: the art collective has revealed the artwork and release details for their upcoming limited-edition vinyl release of Jerry Goldsmith's iconic score to Poltergeist. To a horror soundtrack collector (like yours truly), this thing is about three hundred flavors of awesome – much like Mondo's previous vinyl releases of Maniac, The Beyond and The Deadly Spawn (plus they've got a pressing of Drive in the works). So we'll break it all down for you right here. The expressionistic gatefold over design by Australian artists Sonny Day and Biddy Maroney (who work under the handle We Buy Your Kids) is worth the $25 price alone, and houses a two-lp set with all of the score cues remastered specifically for vinyl. Here's the complete track listing, which includes five never-before-released cues: The Star Spangled Banner The Calling / The Neighborhood (Main »

For awhile now, Mondo’s been keen to get into the vinyl game. Over the past year, they released soundtracks for The Beyond and The Deadly Spawn, and last March they announced that a vinyl version of the glorious Drive soundtrack (overseen by Cliff Martinez) was in the cards (we expect that one any minute now). Well, the time’s come for their latest vinyl release, this time a soundtrack for the classic 80’s haunted-house flick Poltergeist. Featuring new artwork from the Australian super-duo known as We Buy Your Kids, you’ll be free to pick up your very own copy tomorrow afternoon. See pictures and learn more after the jump, folks. All’s been quiet on the Mondo front this week—our guess is that they’re gearing up for something outstanding on Oscar night—but just last night our friends over at Ain’t It Cool News made »

It’s no secret that I’m a Mondo fan, as I wear my love for them proudly on my sleeve. My apartment is decorated wall to wall with their amazing prints, everything from Daniel Danger’s recent Psycho print to a print of Mimic signed by Del Toro himself, I worship their stuff and I have no plans to refrain from obsessively collecting their prints/etc.
Well as if their amazing limited prints weren’t enough, Mondo has extended their line to include a record label, releasing awesome vinyl releases of the soundtracks to William Lustig’s Maniac and Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond last year and continuing that this year with a brand new remastered 180 gram vinyl release of the soundtrack to Douglas McKeown’s awesome 1983 alien film, The Deadly Spawn. It comes in black and also a rare randomly inserted color variant designed to mimic the look »
Mondo has been ramping up their album division. Last year they released vinyl reissues of The Beyond and Maniac soundtracks. For their first release of 2013, Mondo is reissuing the soundtrack to The Deadly Spawn. Phantom City Creative handled the artwork, and random packages will have The Deadly Spawn variant vinyl - red splotchy color that mimics the monster's coloring.
Much like Mondo's limited-edition poster sales, The Deadly Spawn will go on sale at a random time on January 4th. For more info, check out Mondo's blog.

Over the holiday break, I became the owner of a record player again. (Fun fact: I haven't owned one since, well, middle school.) This is great because now it has opened me up to a whole new world in terms of re-issues of incredible soundtracks, furthermore, I can finally enjoy the Maniac and Insidious scores I've owned on vinyl.
If you're a fellow record lover, you'll be wanting to keep an eye on Mondo this Friday, that's when they release The Deadly Spawn soundtrack.

Mondo has just revealed that their first poster offering of 2013 will be a new Jurassic Park poster by Ken Taylor. They also announced that they will continue their vinyl soundtrack offerings with The Deadly Spawn:
“If you noticed, we took the last couple of weeks of 2012 off. Why? Because we have some big things coming to you in January and they needed the proper attention. We just announced Ken Taylor’s Jurassic Park poster and we’ll be announcing the January gallery show soon, but this blog post will focus on one of of the most exciting things we’ll be expanding in 2013…. our record label.
Last year, we started a record label that focused on putting out great soundtracks on vinyl. Our first two offerings were Maniac and The Beyond. We also announced that we would be putting Drive out with Tyler Stout artwork for the packaging. (Quick update on that… »

Remember in the last story when we said Mondo was showing no signs of slowing down in 2013? As we were hitting the publish button, an e-mail came in alerting us that the wonderful sickos there are also releasing The Deadly Spawn soundtrack to vinyl!
From the Mondo Site
Last year, we started a record label that focused on putting out great soundtracks on vinyl. Our first two offerings were Maniac and The Beyond. We also announced that we would be putting Drive out with Tyler Stout artwork for the packaging. (Quick update on that… it’s done. Approved. And at the plant getting pressed.) We’ve been working very hard on getting choice titles and artists for packaging and we’re happy to announce that our first release for 2013 is being dropped this Friday, January 4th. This release just happens to be one of my favorite monster movies of all »
