1987 was the year that The Monster Squad was released. I remember watching it when I was young, shortly after it came out. This movie is rated PG-13 and is a cross between modern (1980’s modern) movies, and classic Hollywood monsters.
A group of kids have a monster club. They talk about mummy’s, Dracula, Wolfman, and Frankenstein. But after acquiring Van Helsing’s diary in an estate sale, Sean realizes that he can’t read it as it’s all in German, and that mysterious things are starting to happen. Blood banks are missing stock, a mummy in the museum is missing, and a man claiming to be a werewolf, breaks out of jail on the full moon.
It’s now up to The Monster Squad to get rid of the monsters, and save their town.
The Monster Squad stars:
- Andre Gower – Sean
- Robby Kiger – Patrick
- Stephen Macht – Del, Sean’s Dad
- Duncan Regehr – Count Dracula

This one is a fun movie, that may give younger kids the impression they are watching a scarier movie. Be sure to enjoy the movie!
