Mondo Movie Posters!

“It’s sexy time!”, to paraphrase Borat, as we delve into the strange, sensational, hyper-sexualized film genre known as Mondo (not to be confused with the other Mondo gang at Alamo Drafthouse).

Before Reality TV, the creation of Italian mondo cinema in the 1960s gave birth to a weird world of exploitation documentaries that covered many taboo subjects, including sex, death, and pretty much anything else that could either turn you on or creep you out (thank you, Russ Meyer!).

But the one good thing to come out of all this depravity is a remarkably gorgeous portfolio of movie posters, featuring artwork from such mainstream International designers as Manfredo Acerbo and Constantin Belinsky. (Images courtesy of Film Art Gallery and EMP.)
