About The Monster Squad

Reuniting the Frankenstein monster, Dracula, the Wolfman and the Mummy for the first time since Paul Naschy’s Assignment Terror, director Fred Dekker’s affectionate horror comedy simultaneously salutes the classic Universal Monsters and the nostalgia for our own childhoods. Though the box office was initially meager, the film engendered the good will of critics and has endured as a bonafide cult classic. Stan Winston’s workshop handled the monster makeups and a good behind-the-scenes article can be found here.
