"You know whom to call when you have ghosts. But who do you call when you have monsters? The Monster Squad - a group of young kids devoted to protecting their suburban neighborhood from monsters and ghouls. Count Dracula escapes Van Helsing and adjourns modern day Earth, accompanied by Frankenstein's Monster, the Wolfman, the Mummy, and the Black Lagoon's Gillman. The ghouls are in search of a powerful amulet that will grant them power to rule the world. Standing in their way - The Monster Squad!"--Container.

One of my childhood favorite movies. Monster Squad is told from a kid's perspective. And, while the main action of the story is incredibly absurd (The Mummy literally hides in a kid's closet, and Dracula has a weird affinity for dynamite), there are moments of poignant reality. The kids form a Monster Club to cope with a rocky homelives, and schoolyard bullying. Then the monsters actually show up. It also has some of the most quotable lines of the 80s. As long as you have a healthy suspension of disbelief, and love of the wacky, you're likely to enjoy this hidden gem.

Oh childhood memories and this movie go hand in hand. Can't wait to view it after almost 20 years.

Monster/action-drama. Good, funny, moves well. Like "the goonies" but w/some language.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The final battle with the monsters gets intense. Gunplay, staking vampires, exploding werewolves, and Dracula snatching a little girl. Parental Guidance suggested for young audiences.

Coarse Language: Pre-PG-13 Rating swearing by small children Worst: A 5-year old drops a "Chickensh**" Also some homophobic language typical to 80s movies. Mostly, the swearing is in good fun, but may give some parents pause.
