The Monster Squad (1987, USA) Review

The Monster Squad (1987, USA) Review

I’m well into my 30’s now. That means I was lucky enough to be in my pre-teens when Fred Dekker was still directing films and TV. He may be known by most people as either the director of the entertaining Night of the Creeps or calamitous Robocop 3, but sandwiched in between these two totally dissimilar yarns was 1987’s The Monster Squad.

The titular “Monster Squad” is a small group of horror-loving kids, led by Sean, who run their affairs from a poster-adorned treehouse.

“You know who to call when you have ghosts. But who do you call when you have monsters?”

Ranking the Best of the Classic Universal Monsters

Ranking the Best of the Classic Universal Monsters

Half of what makes a good horror film is a good monster. Without a believable, and ultimately scary, antagonist there’s not much for the audience to latch onto. No film studio – not even the amazing Hammer Films – has ever been able to hold a candle to the classics, and probably wouldn’t have ever existed without the Universal monster movies of the 1930s and 40s.

Reynold Brown: Picture Perfect

Take a look at the picture perfect artwork by Reynold Brown; the man that brought us some of the most iconic movie posters from the 1950s and 60s, from Attack of the 50 Foot Woman to Creature from the Black Lagoon. Brown produced over 300 posters for the motion picture industry during his lifetime. Brown’s artwork has been used to promote epics, like Ben-Hur and Spartacus; westerns, such as The Alamo and Taza, Son of Cochise; as well as horror and science fiction cinema. His artwork for This Island Earth and Creature from the Black Lagoon have already become popular amongst collectors.
