Phantom City Creative's 'Cabin in the Woods' & 'Exorcist' Mondo Art
You think you know the story… We've got another excellent Mondo poster to feature today, in fact a few of them. Mondo's Justin Ishmael (@mondonews) has unveiled the artwork for two new posters created by Toronto's Phantom City Creative, one for William Friedkin's 1973 classic The Exorcist, one for Drew Goddard's modern but soon-to-be-classic horror The Cabin in the Woods, which had its own Mondo Mystery screening, too. EW.com originally debuted the Cabin poster, which features some twisted M.C. Escher-like art, similar to the official poster. Both of these are stunning, and go on sale soon, check ’em out!
Yea, we featured a lot of Mondo posters, but not only are these great art, but I think Cabin in the Woods deserves all the extra attention it can get. Plus, The Exorcist is a classic, and this one looks awesome, too.
Both of these posters are 24"x36" and being printed/sold by Mondo for around ~$45. The Exorcist has a variant as well, and both of these will go on sale online tomorrow (Friday, April 5th) at "a random time."
Goddard says of his poster above: "All I've ever wanted in life was to make a movie that had its own Mondo poster. I can now exit this mortal coil a happy man." Ha! I think I may try to get my hands on one of these.
The Cabin in the Woods is the feature directorial debut of Whedon protege Drew Goddard, screenwriter of Cloverfield and Robopocalypse, as well as work on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Alias" and "Lost" for J.J. Abrams. The original screenplay was co-written by Joss Whedon ("Buffy", "Angel", "Firefly", Serenity, The Avengers) & Drew Goddard. This was originally shot in early 2009, but is just now, finally, getting a release from Lionsgate. Cabin in the Woods is scheduled to hit theaters on April 13th coming next week. You in?

I wanted to make a joke about Cabin in the Woods and Eljiah Wood, but I can't think of anything... Nice poster

"All I've ever wanted in life was to make a movie that had its own Mondo poster. I can now exit this mortal coil a happy man." Tongue-in-cheek, yes, but I also read that as sarcasm. Which is hilarious. Because in most cases Mondo posters look more like the embossing of a book cover than an actual theater poster.
