31 Days of Horror 3: The Monster Squad

Think The Goonies meeting the Universal Monsters and you would have The Monster Squad. A film that has a cult following but never got the mainstream attention it deserved.
The movie is about Dracula who, of course, wants to rule the world. He goes about this by finding legendary monsters such as Wolf Man, Gill Man, the Mummy and Frankenstein's Monster. Yet, he didn't plan on a group of kids foiling his plans.
The movie is not scary, but it's awesome and a good Halloween movie for families to sit down and enjoy.
I do believe that the script could have been much stronger and we could of went without Gill Man. I still like the movie, but it does seem to try and fit together so much and in the end it doesn't all work.
With that said, that's all the negative that I really have to say about the film. It defiantly caters to those who enjoyed the horror classics but that is not a bad thing ... for anyone.
The film was released on DVD and Blu-Ray and it's not that hard to find. If your interest is now sparked, don't hesitate and pick this one up.
