GRAVITY Pre-Order UPDATE

Hey All, sorry for the silence on this subject: We experienced some delays in the production of our GRAVITY vinyl. I wish there was a more detailed explanation I could provide, but the truth is that vinyl production is a very timely process and we unfortunately miscalculated the arrival of our finished product. I was hoping that by now I would have an exact ship date to share with y’all, but for now all I can say is we are approximately three weeks behind schedule.

Kevin’s fully realized artwork came out amazing, and we can’t wait for you to see it. More details on the variant colors, and packaging soon. I will have another update next week, and on-going updates until we have the finished product in hand and shipping labels printed. Thank you all for your continued patience.

Edition of 500 Copies

As premiered at Texas Frightmare in Dallas this past weekend we will be releasing two incredible, personal favorites of ours VHS this Friday May 9th: THE VISITOR & MS. 45. Both feature amazing new artwork by Jay Shaw, and are limited to 500 copies. Check out the trailers for both, and read all about them.

In this unforgettable assault on reality–restored and presented uncut–legendary Hollywood director/actor John Huston (The Maltese Falcon; Treasure Of The Sierra Madre) stars as an intergalactic warrior who joins a cosmic Christ figure in the battle against a demonic 8-year old girl and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. Multi-dimensional warfare, pre-adolescent profanity and brutal avian attacks combine to transport the viewer to a state unlike anything they’ve experienced… somewhere between Hell, the darkest reaches of outer space, and Atlanta, GA. THE VISITOR fearlessly fuses elements of The Omen, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, The Birds, Rosemary’s Baby, The Fury and even Star Wars creating the most ambitious of all ’70′s psychedelic mind warps. Its baffling all-star cast included Shelly Winters (Night Of The Hunter,) Glenn Ford (Superman,) Lance Henriksen (Aliens,) Franco Nero (Django,) and Sam Peckinpah (director of The Wild Bunch.)

Abel Ferrara’s (Bad Lieutenant, King Of New York) 1981 revenge thriller classic MS. 45 follows a mute garment-district seamstress – played by the late model/actress/musician/screenwriter Zoe Lund – who after falling victim to multiple unspeakable assaults, ignites her one-woman homicidal rampage against New York City’s entire male population.

Out friends at DRAFTHOUSE FILMS did the dirty work of getting these classics back on the big screen last fall (you can check out both of them on VOD or pick up Blu-Ray or DVDs on their site www.drafthousefilms.com) We at Mondo Video are super thrilled to be able to pay our own tribute to both of these classic films. Both go on sale this coming Friday.

THE VISITOR Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP

VISITOR_cover

I lived in Kansas City up until 2006 or so. Moving to Austin to work at the Drafthouse was one of the best things that ever happened to me. When I first got down here, I went to like EVERY screening at the Colorado St location. That’s where I first met Tim League, Zack Carlson, Rodney Perkins, Eric Vespe, Lars Nilsen, etc. There were A LOT of guys that knew A LOT more than me at the Drafthouse and it was awesome because I was constantly getting clued into films and other things that I might like.

Here are the top 5 movies i heard about when I first got down (in no particular order)…

1. GOKE: BODY SNATCHER FROM HELL
2. THE MAGIC CHRISTMAS TREE
3. STUNT ROCK
4. SNAKES
5. THE VISITOR

Whenever one of these would be on a Weird Wednesday or (then) Terror Thursday, you could definitely see a charge go through that cinephile community. When THE VISITOR came on the schedule, it was like a rockstar walked into the room. This was something special and I really didn’t understand. If you’ve ever tried to explain THE VISITOR to someone who hasn’t seen it, you’ll know that it’s pretty much impossible without sounding insane.

When I finally watched it, I was completely confused. It took several viewings to really get it to make sense (is that possible?,) but the thing that made sense from the first frame was the music. So, when Tim League mentioned that Drafthouse Films was getting THE VISITOR, it was a natural reaction to ask for the okay to put the soundtrack out.

This is a very special score, and I hope you give these SoundCloud tracks a listen. Heck, I found myself playing and replaying them when we first uploaded it. Like with our DEADLY SPAWN release, here is a movie that isn’t very well known, but the music is remarkable. Help spread the word that this exists and that good music is still out there to be found.

We will be premiering this record for sale at TEXAS FRIGHTMARE WEEKEND up in Dallas. They will be available on our webstore beginning May 9th.

Retroband George Romero Release Information

We’re gearing up to head to Dallas for Texas Frightmare Weekend, but before we get to the actual con, we are making a stop in Richardson at the Alamo Drafthouse / Texas Frightmare screening of DAWN OF THE DEAD to release the very first OFFICIAL figure of GEORGE ROMERO with our friends at Retroband!

Romero6

In case you don’t know what Retroband does, let me explain. First, Retroband is actually two people consisting of Gabriel Hernandez and Aaron Moreno. They excel in making limited edition, hand sculpted, hand cast and hand painted figures. They design their own card art and package the figures in San Antonio, TX. I found out about them last year and have been a gigantic fan ever since.

These figures, like stated above, are truly special. We have a limited amount for sale and will be making them available on a first come, first served basis to ticket holders for the 7:35PM and 8:15PM DAWN OF THE DEAD screenings and will cost $100. We’ve very excited about this and hope that you are, too. See you this weekend!

MITCHELL x MARVEL x MONDO Gallery Recap!

We wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that came out to support the Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo gallery show opening last Friday. It was one of the most fun nights we’ve had at the gallery. There were costumes, kids, kids in costumes, and tons of great art!

Mike put a lot of hard work and love into this exhibit and we feel it really shows. If you get the chance, it is worth stopping by the gallery and seeing all the great pieces in person. Our gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 12PM – 6PM at 4115 Guadalupe St., Austin, TX.

Check out some photos from opening night below!
