The Monster Squad was a childhood favorite of mine and now as an adult is still a favorite of mine. I remember renting it from the video store (remember those) based solely on the cover alone. A bunch of kids with the images of all the classic monsters in the sky above them. I was sold. Kids movies nowadays are so neutered it is hard to believe we grew up with movies like this. Movies made for younger audiences that didn’t think they were dumb or had to throw in some humor only adults would get to keep the parents interested. This is a prime example of how a good movie can be made with a good story that appeals to everybody. The Monster Squad is a classic at any time of year.
