I can remember renting “The Monster Squad” over and over from the Pathmark grocery store around the corner. I think I rented this ’80s classic just as much (if not more) as I rented Michael Jackson’s “Moonwalker”. My parents didn’t believe in buying VHS tapes… but they would rent them like crazy until my Dad figured out how to dub movies using two VCRs and a sound system. Anyway, “The Monster Squad” was a great movie and was a wonderful segway into the adult 1980’s Horror genre.
“The Monster Squad” is about a group of kids that form a club and seek out to destroy monsters. The only thing is – monsters aren’t real… or are they? Dracula and his side-kicks the Wolfman, The Mummy, The Creature from the Black Lagoon and Frankenstein’s monster show up to take over the world and bring about Limbo. The kids take em’ on and a cool ’80s montage ensues. Here’s the classic kid monster movie from the decade of excess in HD. Enjoy!
