Since its inception, Mondo has produced hundreds of posters, posters that have touched on virtually every genre under the sun. They've taken on comedies, action classics, a wide array of sci-fi titles - hell, they've even swerved outside the film world to cover stuff like Batman, Adventure Time, and NBC's gone-too-soon Hannibal.
But for my money, Mondo does horror better than anyone else in the business. They've covered the big-time slashers (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Halloween), niche favorites (The Gate, House By The Cemetery), the Universal Monsters (a series which Martin Ansin has nailed time and time again), and everything in-between. Because we're celebrating horror this month at Birth.Movies.Death., I thought it'd be cool to shed a light on some of Mondo's all-time greatest horror prints.
This is by no means a complete collection - this page'd be five times as long if we included everything - but what follows are probably our favorite Mondo horror prints. Check these suckers out:

ADDENDUM: I've received a tidal wave of "What, no _____ ?" messages after running this post, and for the most part, my response is: no, no ________. But as a friend just pointed out to me on Twitter, this list does contain one legitimate oversight: I didn't include Tyler Stout's The Thing, which is debatably the quintessential Mondo poster. So just this once, I'm going to make an addendum to a personal list. What can I say? Sometimes the classics completely slip your mind. Here it is, in all its glory.
