MONDO Unleashes Two New Slabs of Video Vindication at Texas Frightmare Weekend with MS.45 and THE VISITOR Released in Big Box Format with Randomly Inserted Colored Tapes!
MS. 45 VHS Artwork by Jay Shaw Edition of 500 Copies On Black Cassette & randomly inserted White Cassette
A look at the MS.45 big box from the front. I spy an old-school video rental genre sticker on thurrr.
A look at the randomly inserted white variant. Dig the tray, mang.

THE VISITOR also gets the big box treatment from Mondo. Groovy colors, mannnnnn.
The standard black and randomly inserted orange. Vintage rental stickers? I can dig it.Well, the pictures sure do look analog awesome, as is to be expected from Mondo and their consistently top-notch productions. It leaves the question of what’s next for Mondo’s line of re-animated magnetic magic. Personally, I’d like to see them dig deep to the more obscure treats, not just to re-introduce some cult classics on the VHS format, but reignite a cult film flame that might otherwise never see the light of day. That very well may never happen, as cult classic stuff does seem to be Mondo’s forte. So, in accord with their spirit, may I suggest THE GATE or perhaps MOTHER’s DAY?! Time will tell, and I’m sure Videovores across the analog landscape are eager to drink up the spill. I know I am.
Gratitude to Kass Martin for helping me navigate the labyrinth that is the internet.
