When Dracula returns from the dead to assemble an evil army of monsters, it will be up to a group of courageous young kids to save the world in THE MONSTER SQUAD! Following his cult zombie hit NIGHT OF THE CREEPS, director Fred Dekker sets off to create one of the most beloved children's Horror films of all-time, combining all of his own childhood favorites into a single film: Dracula, The Wolfman, The Gill-man, The Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster, and other ghoulish creatures. With the help of Stan Winston and other talented makeup artists, THE MONSTER SQUAD features incredible redesigns for each of the classic monsters, making them scary without driving away his intended audience. Tom Noonan is playfully naive in his role as the Frankenstein Monster, while Duncan Regehr stands out amongst the monsters with his flamboyantly over-the-top but menacing performance as the sinister Count. The Squad, itself, is perfectly assembled as well, with a range of talented youngsters that remind us of Sean Astin and the gang from THE GOONIES. They bring to life much of the innocent humor, including memorable lines like "Wolfman's got nards!" THE MONSTER SQUAD is fun for all ages, a timeless cult-classic when it comes to monster movies.
