Horror 101 Episode 1: The Monster Squad (1987)

leave a comment »


For our premiere episode Fred and Jam are discussing The Monster Squad from TriStar Pictures in 1987.  Directed by Fred Dekker and co-written by Dekker and Shane Black, the elevator pitch is five pre-teens up against five of the Universal Monsters.  While it never quite caught on and lives today in cult status, The Monster Squad is a great contemporary way to get acquainted with those classic creatures from the 30s, 40s, and 50s.  Each episode is in two parts: one main episode on the movie and a feature-length commentary track. You can find the commentary track here.
