Mondo is already in the middle of Director’s Series posters for Guillermo del Toro and Zack Snyder, but there’s no rule as to how many directors can have their own series. The latest name to get his own line is Wes Craven and on Thursday, Mondo will be releasing posters for A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Both posters were designed by Alex Pardee and are (unsurprisingly) impressive and eye-catching. Mondo will also be releasing posters for Craven’s Swamp Thing, The Hills Have Eyes, and The Last House on the Left.

ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE & MONDO ANNOUNCE
“DIRECTOR’S SERIES” FOR MASTER OF SUSPENSE
Austin, TX— Tuesday, April 12, 2011— Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is excited to announce Wes Craven as the next filmmaker for their “Director’s Series” featuring both classic and contemporary films from the master of suspense. Mondo kicks things off with Alex Pardee’s clever and gruesome takes on Wes Craven’s two icons of fright – Freddy & Ghostface – for A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Additional titles scheduled for the Mondo treatment include Swamp Thing, The Hills Have Eyes, and The Last House on the Left.
“It’s an honor and great fun to be chosen by Mondo to participate in their Director’s Series. I think the posters brim with wild imagination and sly humor. Thank you so much – I’m pleased my films have earned a place in your gallery!” said director Wes Craven.
“Answering the phone. Taking a nap. Going to the movies. One man has made each of these seemingly innocent and normal activities TERRIFYING. Wes Craven has been traumatizing audiences for years and we are very proud to add this master of horror and suspense to the ever growing ranks of Mondo Director’s Series,” said Justin Ishmael, Mondo Creative Director.
