Mondo Releasing Incredible A Nightmare on Elm Street Poster

Mondo Elm Street

When it comes to posters, few do it better… or even as good… as Mondo. Need further evidence of that? Then feast your eyes on this incredible A Nightmare on Elm Street 36″ x 24″ print from artist Matt Ryan.

I personally wanted to capture the suburban quiet calm night,” said Ryan regarding the print via his website. “The clean and oh-so-perfect little white-picket fenced street. So quiet you could hear a pin drop but in no way could you hear the approaching menace of an immortal dream stalker demon/ex-child killer who preys on you at your most vulnerable…while you sleep.

The visual to any fans of the film might be familiar. It was inspired by Tina’s nightmare scene in which Freddy’s arms grow and stretch and reach out beyond human means. This is really the first time you really learn of Freddy’s ability to bend his dream world to do whatever he wants. That’s always a terrifying thought – that someone/something evil has that much control over your dreams…

I wanted Freddy to actually be interacting with the landscape… breaking the fourth wall to a degree. Freddy’s arms reaching and stretching and coiling around the houses on Elm St. In and out of bedroom windows like a snake. Both houses on the left and right being Tina and Glen’s houses specifically.

I wanted people to look at this poster and be transported there.

Mission accomplished.

The poster made its debut this past weekend when the Alamo Drafthouse’s Austin, Texas, location played host to an all-day marathon of the entire Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. If there are any left to buy, you’ll find ’em on the Mondo website beginning tomorrow, October 18th.  Check out the print, which had both a regular edition of 250 and a “retro variant edition” of just 150, below.
