Would you like a little more monster in your life? Mondo Gallery in Austin unleashed a stampede of horror artwork last weekend, celebrating a century of buried, wrapped and electrified fiends from the vast vaults of Universal Studios.

Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouse's collectible art division, produces some stunning limited-edition poster mashups and sharp reimaginings inspired by the geek films we lust over.

This weekend, the doors to the main gallery opened for a show of monstrous proportions, with 20 new prints and 50 original pieces of artwork available for sale, each emblazoned with the familiar faces of Karloff, Chaney, Lugosi and more. Guests, some camped out overnight, were treated to a fantastic array of posters and paintings saluting Universal Studios' legacy of famous Hollywood monsters from the early years of horror cinema.

Here's a mere taste to salivate over, highlighting the cool collection of art inspired from iconic creature films like The Mummy, Dracula, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man and The Invisible Man. Head on over to Collider for a more extensive look at the rest of the gruesome gang.

How'd you like the show? See anything you'd kill to have?
