"Wolfmans got nards" a quote from Horace also known as Fat Kid (by styles-4)
Great movie. This is the #1 all time best family/horror flick you can see. When I was in preschool I use to watch this movie all the time. Over, and Over. And I blame this one single movie for my great taste in cheesy, violant, Slasher/or not, horror movies. I'm now starting to wach more and more horror B- movies anything by Troma team video I highly recommend . But back to the monster squad its all about these kids who are really into the whole idea of monsters and stuff. So, they start this Monster club Hence the name "monster squad" . But the craziest thing happens, Dracula, <more>
Frankienstien, The Mummy, The Wolfman, and a swamp creature, all come back to life. With the help of the school tough guy, Rudy they challenge these classic monsters to the death. FUNNY. 10 OUT OF 10
This movie brings back childhood memories of watching TV all day long during the summer vacation. This movie was, and still is, one of my favorite movies of all times. Just watching it makes me happy. So what if the acting is not top-caliber. It has a great story and the characters are all fun to watch. It is a highly amusing film that you should watch if you've never seen it.
Great kids film (by Mori)
This is a great and imaginative kids adventure film. Well acted, well written and the monsters look great. I'm sure that many parents would be conserned by the cursing in this film done by 12 year olds most likely the reason this gem hasn't hit DVD yet but I have never understood how some people think that cussing will destroy your kids brain and turn him into a drug addict. It's good wholesome fun for everyone.
A great film...Not an Academy Award or anything though yet still a good film. (by riddler_1138-3)
I saw this film a couple of years ago and it still remains to be one of my most favorite monster/comedy films of all time.It has an easy to follow plot, people you can root for and some pretty good special effects. If your a real monster film buff, you'll enjoy some good trivia throughout.A good score for all involved.Out of 10..........9/10
Happy Halloween! (by Smells_Like_Cheese)
So a few months ago I was watching an internet reviewer who was talking about good Halloween movies to watch. One of the films that he highly recommended was The Monster Squad, the weird thing is being a huge movie buff, I had never heard of this movie. But it looked really cool from the clips he was showing, so I decided to just buy the movie and I am glad I did. One of the things I am a huge fan of is the old Universal horror movies, like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, etc. But during the 80's it was more about making new horror icons like Jason and Freddy. Being <more>
brought back together in a clever updated way, we get to see all the icons together being led by Dracula. It's so odd because I don't know if this was a kid's movie, a family movie or a true horror film, I think the answer is yes. I wonder what kind of effect this movie would have had on me if I saw it as a child vs. an adult, but honestly I had an absolute wonderful time watching it in my 20's, and this is definitely a great film to watch during Halloween.The Monster Squad is a club of pre-teens who idolize classic monsters and monster movies and hold their meetings in a tree clubhouse. Sean is given the diary of legendary vampire hunter Van Helsing - but his excitement is toned down when he finds it's written in German. Sean, his best friend Patrick, and the rest of the Monster Squad get their neighbor who is German to translate the diary. The diary describes, in great detail, an amulet that is composed of concentrated good. One day out of every century, as the forces of good and evil reach a balance, the otherwise-indestructible amulet becomes vulnerable to destruction, and the next day of balance falls within a couple days, at the stroke of midnight. The kids realize they must gain possession of the amulet before the day of balance arrives; once they have the amulet, the kids can use it to open a hole in the universe and cast the monsters into Limbo. Dracula, meanwhile, seeks to obtain the amulet before the Monster Squad does, so that the Count can take control of the world.The kids are absolutely hilarious! Almost like seeing if The Goonies took on the old monsters, we have a whole different variety of the cliché kids. Plus they have one of the coolest lines in film history with "Wolfman's got nards!", that was too priceless. Seeing Frankenstein and the little sister together was both charming and very funny to watch. I love that Frankenstein isn't the typical monster that he's normally made out to be since he is more of a tragic figure and he's a good guy in the film. I think why this film is so great is because of the chemistry between the kids and the rest of the cast. Plus I have to admit that I was a weird kid who absolutely adored horror movies and this just took me back. It could take us all back to a time where monsters were cool, even though I'm pretty sure we wouldn't want to defeat them in a battle, but they were fun to talk about and watch on the big screen. Remember Halloween? When it was about getting dressed up and getting candy and coming home and pigging out and watching a scary movie? The Monster Squad gave me the chance to be a kid again and I adore this movie, totally worth the buy.9/10
If you loved the Goonies, you need to see this too! (by DanLives1980)
The 80's...It was a time of idiot US presidents cough LOL cough , a time of terrible fashion, a time when heavy metal records were burned by Christians for being satanic and a time when children could watch adult movies because what else was there for kids besides cartoons? The Goonies changed that in 1985 and there was never a film quite as good, that was until 1987 when horror cult legend Fred Dekker Night of the Creeps brought us a movie that was more adult, yet knew that wasn't going to stop every kid seeing it without too much effort.Enter one of the most awesome films of my <more>
childhood; The Monster Squad! With all the classic prosthetic effects, comedy and blood and guts explosions synonymous with 1980's horror legends, Fred Dekker told a tale of an unlikely band of guardians standing against the forces of darkness; a bunch of kids barely into junior high as far as I can tell, being English .The son of a cop, Sean, and his tree-house gang are faced with Dracula, the Mummy, Wolfman, Manphibian and others when an ancient artifact is lost in their suburban town. Dracula needs it in order to complete his quest for dominance over humanity, but when Sean's baby sister accidentally brings home Frankenstein's Monster played brilliantly by rent-a-psycho Tom Noonan of Manhunter, Robocop 2 etc and he turns out to be friendly, this turns the tide in their favour.Just when you think this is some silly kids fantasy played out for nobody but the kids however, the action amps up a few notches and we're not spared from some seriously enjoyable monster carnage the way it's supposed to happen.With some hilarious one-liners WOLFMAN'S GOT NARDS? , it escalates to the point where you really miss kids being able to use bad language in films. Let's not beat around the bush here. Film and television is ignorant to the fact that most insults and swearwords today are invented by kids before they enter the mainstream.Monster Squad recognised that and with all of this good fun happening all around, and with kids kicking serious ass with crossbows, shotguns and even sticks of dynamite for crying' out loud, this movie is still today some of the best fun you can have with a kids movie.It's so politically incorrect that it couldn't be more accurate! Monster Squad doesn't try to be anything more than fun, fun, fun and whereas it's exactly that, call me sentimental, but it's also very touching at times and I can't recommend it enough.Please come back, Fred Dekker, the world really needs you!
Prospective Monster Squad viewers may recognize the name Fred Dekkar, the director of another 80s cult classic, a zombie horror called Night of the Creeps. Monster Squad follows in that tradition as the horror-comedy about a gang of young kids who save their town from Dracula and his goons. In my opinion, Monster Squad is a much more enjoyable movie than Night of the Creeps. The Monster Squad refers to a tree house club of five kids who are self-proclaimed horror fanatics. Little did they know that their enthusiasm in the genre would suddenly come in handy as their town in suddenly invaded by <more>
Dracula and a few other memorable horror villains in their classic form. Drac is terrorizing the town, trying to locate a powerful amulet which has the potential for serious disaster. When no one else believes the kids, or when no one else is powerful enough to stop them using traditional crime fighting methods arresting the Wolfman didn't seem to work out , the Monster Squad with the help of Scary German Guy and Frankenstein takes things upon themselves to save the day. This movie was great because, although the monsters may appear somewhat corny not forgetting that it is technically a family horror film , it still has a heap of great qualities. The kids are actually all pretty cool especially Rudy, even though his wears his pants so tight, you can see what side he tucks on . Great music, great cast Andre Gower, Robby Kiger, Ryan Lambert, Stephen Macht, and Jon Gries , and great fun!Fans of obscure 80s movies are sure to add to the cult following. You won't be disappointed. It is loads of fun. Bona Fortuna!
I'm sure the way this film was pitched was "Goonies meets Ghostbusters". heck, the poster says "you know who to call for ghosts, but who do you call when you got monsters?" The story of the film is pretty simple, you have a group of kids verying in ages much like Goonies who are obsessed with Monsters. They come to learn that REAL monsters are in their time and after them because one of the kids has Van Helsing's diary, and the means to destroy all the monsters, hence the Monster Squad is born. What saves this film is that it has good casting, good laughs, and <more>
excellent creature effects. The Creature from the Black Lagoon looks awesome for 1987 standards . All the monsters are basically 'more' realistic versions of all the Universal classics, Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, Wolf Man, The Mummy, and as mentioned Creature from the Black Lagoon. Excellent nostalgia, only wish there was a widescreen DVD available...oh well, I'm sure it's gonna be out soon enough. 8 out of 10 The DVD Blu-Ray too I believe is released now, it's packed with special features and an excellent wide-screen transfer
A real Monster Film for Kids and Teens (by lambiepie-2)
I remember when this came out. I was past the kids and tweens age and what I remember most about this is the harsh reaction it got from critics. I remember parent's groups screaming about "how bad and violent Monster Squad was for their kids". But ya know what... this was a good "monster" film for kids and teens. I'm surprised they haven't made a sequel. They really should have.I've got to call on my fellow movie junkies from the late 60's and 70's when we were toddlers and children watching TV for this one. Remember when they showed us the old <more>
Universal Films late at night -- Dracula, The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, The Mummy, Frankenstein and the gang? Remember the 'all day' Thanksgiving Godzilla marathons? And remember these shows as a kid: "Creature Feature", "Chiller", "The CBS Friday Night Late Movie", "Dr. Shock", "Joe Bob Briggs", "Elvira" and many more across the USA? This film is for OUR kids - make no mistake. The other kids, well, they missed out.Monster Squad was done in the best possible light - it didn't talk down to kids and put them in control when the adults wouldn't believe them that Monsters were taking over their town. Plus there were other monster references beyond the scary ones - the real ones that occurred in History. The children, kids and tweens cast in this film were adorable and cast right. You had your smart alec leader type kid obsessed with monsters, your typical "fat" kid, your really adorable little girl/sister type who wants to be a part of everything her older brothers and his friends did and adorable/shy little boy. Shane Black, who was a popular screenwriter of the 80's with Lethal Weapon and the like, knew what he was doing with this one, and Fred Dekker, the director, directed his young staff well. This wasn't silly - it was a believable kids world where kids were the heroes and the parents were thankful they were. The parent's weren't dumb either, that was refreshing.The monsters were as you remember them: the uptight Dracula and his faithful Brides, the misunderstood Frankenstein, The weird Mummy, the conscientious Wolfman. The special effects at that time were exceptionally good and probably too scary for children under 7 at the time - but I rank this movie for kids 8+ not children 7 or under.I mean, I saw 10 year olds at the remake of The Texas Chain Saw Masacre a few years ago, so now, 'Monster Squad' would be lukewarm to them. If I had an 8 year old, we'd be watching this together just like I watched Universal's Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man with my parents and/or siblings. Granted I did see other horror films alone, but you can't beat them all! Heck, these films are in my DNA, I know it would be in my child's.This is quite the underrated 'kids' monster movie.
