Check This Out: Awesome Tyler Stout Monster Squad Poster!
We don't write about the posters that Mondo Tees sells as often as SlashFilm does, but there's a new one that I just have to feature (even if it's sold out). Their newest poster, designed by Tyler Stout, is for the 1987 creature feature classic Monster Squad. I had the honor of attending a screening of the movie late last year with live commentary from director Fred Dekker and writer Shane Black and it was quite an awesome experience. It's such a great movie that I'm sure many of you guys grew up on it. Yes, Wolfman's got nards! And yes, this poster kicks ass! Unfortunately, the bad news, is that this poster is already sold out. Damnit!
Stout created two different variants of the poster, one in red (seen above), and the other a lush blue. They were created for the Alamo Drafthouse's screening of Monster Squad and given out there, which is why they sold out so quickly. The prices were $40 for the red one, and $80 for the blue one. If you still want to try and order one, head over to the Mondo Tees site. "During a Q and A at the Alamo's screening of The Monster Squad, director Fred Dekker proclaimed that Tyler Stout's poster is the best poster ever created for the 80's classic." I have to agree with him! This is one of my favorite posters. If only I could've got one, darn!

You would think that the person in charge of the wording on the poster would have double checked their use of proper grammar. "Call them for a monster-ous good time" should in fact be "Call them for a moster-ously good time".

You would think the first person to post on this article would understand that the original tag line for the film was "Call them for a monster-ous" good time. Maybe you should be calling out the studio circa: the 80's and not the creator of this amazing poster. Troll.

That is a very nicely designed movie poster; and I can see how anyone who saw this movie at a pivotal age would be drawn to it. Having said that... I never understood the love for this dopey movie. I have friends that found it hilarious and made constant references to "nards"; but I always thought the kids were shitty actors and the monsters were too toned down. I notice the poster pictured above says the film was rated 'R' ;but imdb has it listed as PG-13. Perhaps there is a less dumbed down cut of the film floating around out there? The one I saw on the good old VHS release lacked "nards" of any kind.

Alex, He is going to be selling this poster and two others next week thru his website, so your in luck!. If you sign up for his mailing list you will be notified this friday about next weeks sale. Heres a quote from his site concering the sales: "i'll be emailing this friday regarding upcoming poster sales for lost / phish / monster squad. those sales won't be til next week. if you're on my mailing list, you'll get plenty of warning. obviously, mailing list signups are under contact." I bought his Mars Volta poster and Warriors poster...so great.

actually Masteryoda007, try doing a little bit of research before coming off like a complete moron. next time. since obviously its too late this time. original poster for monster squad http://natsukashi.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/monster20squad20vestron20vhs20front.jpg and of course the almighty imdb http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093560/taglines face. on you. 007 of what? being wrong? c'mon. plus your original comment? "should in fact be "Call them for a moster-ously good time" - wtf? that makes no sense Yodabond. Moster-ously? like Most-er-ously dude? you must have meant to say 'i am a caveman, your advanced technology confuses me.' its all research man, invest in knowledge. to sum up, this poster is correct. you are a buffoon. Masteryoda007, i have serious doubts if you are a master of anything.
