Mondo Reveals New Prints Channeling The Master Of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock

On January 14th, Mondo will be releasing new prints by Thomas Danthony, We Buy Your Kids and Adam Simpson.  There is a common theme between all of these and it’s one we are truly enamored with, Alfred Hitchcock.

“I love the original poster by Saul Bass, as a classic movie poster it was a pleasure to dive into the movie again to create my own version. I wanted a new point of view for the fall scene with an endless fall / vertigo feeling. For me, Vertigo is articulated around that scene which actually happens twice with different characters.

I tried to highlight that loop effect of endless falling with the story repeating itself. We can’t see who is falling and which man is in the tower, so it’s up to the viewer to place it in the movie.” – Thomas Danthony

“This was quite a massive poster for us to tackle, being an all time classic and as a personal favorite with Biddy’s dad having a very respectful fascination for it. Watching it again after many years we remarked on what a weird and terrifying movie it is to repeatedly show a little girl. Then after we submitted our first ideas we were shown Laurent’s great posters and we were blown away again.

Our focus was always going to be the birdcage – either literally, or the repetition of that in the ending with the characters trapped inside the house. We played around with the idea of Melanie appearing calm within a menacing looking head cage and the two love birds peering in watching her. But we also like the playful grotesque of a love-bird playing peek-a-boo from an empty eye socket.The mood we’ve tried to set references the early calm of the film, and required a subdued palette which is unusual for us, so there was fun/trepidation to be had rendering it as well.” – WBYK

“I was drawn to the attic scene, as it always resonates with me the most. It embodies the suspense, confusion and the chaos of the movie.” – Adam Simpson
