It’s not all too often we get to see a new poster release from Tyler, so when we do, it is definitely a momentous occasion. Over the years, we have seen some of our most favorite films have the honor of getting that classic Stout treatment and now we are thrilled to see him continue his affinity for John Carpenter films and give us this absolutely stunning poster for Halloween! It was a complete treat seeing Tyler put this one together and I couldn’t be more honored to be a part of it’s release.”

The infamous killer Michael Myers strikes again in Halloween, arriving on Digital and via the digital movie app Movies Anywhere on December 28, 2018, as well as on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on January 15, 2019. Hailed by critics as “a near perfect blend of craft, character growth and nostalgia” (Perri Nemiroff, Collider), Halloween takes place four decades after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween Franchise, “Scream Queens”) narrowly escaped the masked Michael Myers’ brutal killing spree. Packed with bonus features including chilling deleted and extended scenes as well as special featurettes showing behind the scenes looks at creating the film, Halloween delivers spine-chilling, hair-raising intensity and thrills to both new and repeat viewers.
Forty years after the events of 1978’s Halloween, Laurie Strode (Curtis) now lives in a heavily guarded home on the edge of Haddonfield, where she’s spent decades preparing for Michael’s potential return. After being locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when a bus transfer goes terribly wrong, leading to chaos in the same town he preyed on decades earlier. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the deranged killer returns for her and her family – but this time, she’s ready for him.
Master of horror John Carpenter (Halloween (1978), The Thing) joins forces with director David Gordon Green (Joe, Pineapple Express) and producers Jason Blum (Blumhouse), Malek Akkad (Trancas International Films) and Bill Block (Miramax) for this follow up to Carpenter’s 1978 classic horror film. Halloween also includes a stellar cast including Judy Greer (Ant-Man and The Wasp, Jurassic World), Andi Matichak (“Underground”), Will Patton (Armageddon, The Punisher), and Virginia Gardner (Project Almanac, “Runaways”). Proving “classics never die” (Mara Reinstein, US Weekly), Halloween offers a tricky treat for audiences both old and new. Halloween is the perfect slasher film, lauded as “hands down the best Halloween sequel ever” (Katie Walsh, Nerdist) and “immensely entertaining” (Eric Eisenberg, Cinemablend).
Tomorrow Mondo will celebrate the past and present of one of the best horror films around: John Carpenter’s Halloween!
In 1978, John Carpenter gave the world one of its best and most terrifying slasher icons in The Shape and an incredibly strong and savvy survivor in Laurie Strode. Forty years later, we’re still rewatching and singing the praises of this terrifying film while gearing up to see Michael and Laurie on the big screen yet again in a new Halloween film opening this Friday.
In celebration of this excellent film, which is a direct sequel to the 1978 classic, we are thrilled to present an incredible collection of new Halloween merch including breathtakingly stunning posters by Phantom City Creative, the legendary Bill Sienkiewicz, and Jason Edmiston plus an awesome new t-shirt design of Bob the Ghost by Paige Reynolds! In addition to these posters and t-shirt, we’ll also have a slew of new Halloween pins up featuring designs by Matt Taylor, Matt Ryan Tobin, and 100% Soft.
These posters, t-shirt, and pins will be available tomorrow (10/19) at a random time at mondotees.com. Please follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement.

Burger King loves to experiment with weird burger buns—usually featuring an unnatural color. Today, the chain has unveiled a new burger, the Nightmare King, featuring a green bun just in time for Halloween, but this time there’s a new twist on the unusual bun gag: The company is looking to make good on its nightmare claim using science to figure out if eating this burger will actually make you more likely to have a nightmare.
The chain, along with creative shop David Miami, conducted a sleep study in partnership with the Paramount Trials as well as the Florida Sleep and Neuro Diagnostic Services to find out just how scary its new burger is (because we fear burgers this time of year?). Using 100 participants for 10 nights Burger King asked participants to eat its burger and then tracked their heart rate, brain activity and breath.
“According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night,” said Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, the somnologist and lead doctor behind the study, in a statement. “But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by 3.5 times.”
Apparently the burger, which has beef, chicken, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and onions on the aforementioned green bun, has a protein and cheese combination that can cause “an interruption of the subjects’ REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycles, during which we experience the majority of our dreams,” noted Medina.
Why anyone would choose to eat a burger that allegedly causes nightmares? Well, we still don’t have that answer. The burger will be available at Burger King locations from Oct. 22 to Oct. 25.

This is a spiritual successor to his screen print that was created for Mondo back in 2015. In the previous poster, Michael Myers was seen from the perspective of a vulnerable, terrified Laurie Strode about to be attacked. This new poster turns the tables and the point of view, after Laurie stabs The Shape in the eye with a coat hanger, grabs his dropped knife, and prepares to defend herself.
This screen print will debut this weekend, at Halloween: 40 Years of Terror, in Pasadena, CA, October 12-14, 2018. Copies will be available at the Pasadena Convention Center, on Saturday the 13th, and Sunday the 14th, only at Jason’s booth.
Trancas International Films and HorrorHound Ltd. will team for H40: 40 Years of Terror, a special event celebrating the 40th anniversary of 1978 seminal horror classic film Halloween.
