The Monster Squad is a 1987 American horror comedy film directed by Fred Dekker (who also wrote and directed Night of the Creeps) and written by Shane Black and Dekker. Peter Hyams was one of the executive producers. It was released by TriStar Pictures on August 14, 1987. The film features the Universal Monsters (re-imagined by a team of special effects artists, including Stan Winston), led by Count Dracula. They, in turn, combat a group of savvy kids out to keep them from controlling the world.
Great monster movie for films buffs. The Monster Squad is a terrific re-telling of the House of Frankenstein, set in the late 80s. A group of young boys unearth an evil secret within the diary of vampire hunter, Dr. Abraham Van Helsing (Dutch, not German, but forgivable). Dracula has returned, and has re-animated Frankenstein's monster, and brought along a innocent, but tortured werewolf, the frightening, Creature of the Black Lagoon-esque Gill-Man, and a 2000-year old Mummy. The SFX are spectacular, and the make-up and costuming are very well-made.
Monster Rap" kinda sounds like they used a cassette or straight from the DVD for the audio not very good source material. Rock Until You Drop" sounds a little better with a bit more polish to the sound. Mondo must not have been able to find original masters for this release. Not a great pressing but for collectors it's cool.
