cheesy but cute. actually, it's striking how much cursing and sex-talk there was for a movie about and for little kids... I don't think kids movies today are like that, which is perhaps a loss.

Dracula: [holding Phoebe up by her throat] "Give me the amulet, you BITCH!". The story is about a group of kids, with the help of Frankenstein, must save their town from Dracula, the wolfman and gillman. Monster Squad is the most ridiculous, silly, goofy 80's fluff you'll ever come across, but I'll be lying if I say that I wasn't entertained by the movie because I was.

A comedy-horror-action film for the younger crowd. I didn't watch this in my youth, but I still appreciate the humor and fun 'kid' vibe it presents. The only downside to this movie is that it is too short and doesn't tell a full and complete story. It's more interested in taking out the monsters, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Much like The Goonies this flick has a great replay value. I love all things that deal with classic movie monsters and this one has them in spades. As usual the late great Stan Winston and his crew bring their 'A' game! I love the sleek fantastic look of The Gillman. Also i really dig Tom Noonan's performance as Frankenstein. He brought some much needed depth to that worn out character. As for a favorite Squad member. Well that honor goes to the badass-ness that is Horace. I got a kick out of him discovering that the Wolfman possessed testicular fortitude. Then there is the classic scene when Horace shows Kevin Arnold's big bro that he is one 'fat kid' you don't want to mess with!!

Personal Thoughts and a Review

This is by far, one of my all-time favorite movies. Right there next to Halloween.

This unsung hero of movies is just now (20 years later) getting the up front recognition it deserves.

The remember renting this movie with my parents when I was young.....like very young (at least 7 or 8) and I fell in love with this movie. Kids...Monster...it was a dream come true for me.

Fortunately I was able to retain a VHS copy of this movie while it went out of print and MIA. I've had said VHS for over 15 years now (if not closer to 20) and I never tire of watching it.

Before knowledge of the DVD was publicly known I was getting worried that the next time I watched this movie would be the last.

Now the DVD is out and everyone has the chance to see a movie I grew up with and can rec...
