We’re Releasing BLUE SUNSHINE on Vinyl and VHS!

We are very excited to announce that we are issuing the soundtrack to BLUE SUNSHINE on vinyl for the very first time. We will also be reissuing the film on limited edition VHS!

Featuring artwork by Jay Shaw and remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin, this deluxe first time pressing on vinyl is limited to 1,000 copies. Pressed on 180 gram heavy weight black vinyl with a randomly-inserted translucent blue variant.

The clamshell packaged VHS, limited to 400 copies, is available in BLACK and randomly-inserted BLUE cassettes.

In celebration of both releases, this coming Monday 2/17, Mondo & Music Monday are pleased to present a 35mm screening of the cult classic film at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin with writer/director, Jeff Lieberman, in attendance. We will be premiering the Blue VHS and a special Blue Iris colored vinyl (limited to 200 copies) at the screening event.

More about the film below:
Jerry Zipkin is a nice guy. He graduated top of his class. He’s respectful of women. He’s in love. It seems like Zipkin’s got it made, until the night one of his friends loses his hair to spontaneous alopecia totalus, freaks out and throws three innocent women into a fireplace. Now Zipkin’s on the run from the law, wrongfully accused, trying to prove his innocence. It turns out others are going bald and going on murderous rampages. It’s up to Zipkin to find the missing link. It turns out they all have one thing in common, and that one thing is called BLUE SUNSHINE.

Writer/director Jeff Lieberman will be in attendance to talk about the film, as well as sign copies of the soundtrack and VHS.

Mondo Video: MANIAC VHS On Sale 10/22/2013!

MondoManiavVHS-Front

One of our favorite films (and favorite soundtracks) of 2013 is Franck Khalfoun’s remake of MANIAC. Shot entirely from the point of view from the titular antagonist (Elijah Wood), MANIAC is an incredibly disturbing addition to the slasher genre.

We are proud to make this our newest MONDO VIDEO release. Limited edition in a clamshell case with randomly inserted Purple cassette for $25. Our MANIAC VHS will be on sale Tuesday, October 22 at a random time at www.mondotees.com

Frank (Elijah Wood, The Lord of the Rings) leads a deceptively peaceful life: to the outside world, he’s a withdrawn and somewhat eccentric owner of a mannequin store. But his quiet façade masks an inner rage that forces him to brutally kill the women who manage to get too close to him. When a young artist named Anna (Nora Arnezeder, Safe House) appears one day at Frank’s shop and asks for his help with her new exhibition, Frank develops an obsession with her that threatens to completely destroy his already fragile psyche. Soon the streets become unsafe for any woman after dark as this newly-awakened maniac begins to stalk and kill. Based on the classic 1980 shocker, MANIAC is an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a killer and his victims.

Mondo Video: BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW

It’s been too long since we put a new VHS out under our Mondo Video label. Tomorrow, we will have a brand new release that we’re very excited about… Panos Cosmatos’ stunning BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW. This movie is nuts. If you have never seen it, you can see the trailer HERE. Jay Shaw is responsible for the packaging design on the sleeve and it’s just gorgeous. You can see the artwork and read some of Jay’s thoughts on the film below: I love Beyond the Black Rainbow. From the very first frame it is a film dripping with style and mood.  

Writer / Director Panos Cosmatos clearly has an affection for the filmmaking aesthetic of Michael Mann, Stanley Kubrick and David Cronenberg but here he creates something entirely unique and beautiful. 
Set in a fictional 1983, the story concerns a young girl named Elena who’s being held captive by an evil doctor in a research facility called The Arboria Institute. 
The film is a hypnotic journey through the fever of control and the power of the human mind. 
Cosmatos’ visual juxtaposition of strict geometry with free form organic creation is the inspiration for this cover. 

Jay

We want to give a very special thanks to Panos Cosmatos for all of his involvement and help in making this happen. BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW will be available tomorrow, January 10, at a random time right HERE. Please follow us on Twitter for the on sale announcement.
