Hunkidoree Resort opened in the summer of 1960 as a middle-class leisure resort for an often-marginalized community: monsters. Monsters including the likes of vampires, lagoon creatures, mummies and other figures appearing in Cold War era films, which served as personifications of American anxiety over nuclear annihilation, this project seeks to reimagine mid-century illustrated posters with unexpected monstrous figures in leisure settings.
