I love this. I love, love, love Mondo Video. One of my favorite things in the world is getting the shipment of VHS in the mail. Every time I open the box I quietly say to myself, “This shouldn’t be happening.” This time, we’re releasing things and I was especially excited about getting this shipment in as I had heard through the grapevine that this thing was going to be “HUGE.” I just thought they meant that it was going to be “HUGE” as in people will like the movie, but no…. this thing is LITERALLY HUGE.
The clamshell on top is our SLEDGEHAMMER VHS. The one on bottom is THINGS. This is not a camera trick. This thing is MASSIVE. And awesome. To me, in the VHS world, the bigger the box, the better.
See what I mean, it’s a giant. Let’s now take a look at the cover….
A lot of people have been asking why we aren’t doing original covers. Our answer, we just can’t compete with these. NOTHING we could do now could touch this or SLEDGEHAMMER. These are such products of their time that if we did anything now, it would feel too modern and not fit in with what we’re trying to do. That being said, I LOVE THIS COVER. In a very weird way, it feels like my house. Random monsters and taxidermy all over the place…. so, just another reason why I’m into it. Here’s a shot of the back….
There ya go. Our second MONDO VIDEO release. It’s on sale now HERE, so take a look and grab one while you can!
