Monster Squad [Import] <b>VHS</b> ~ Andre Gower
Monster Squad [Import] VHS ~ Andre Gower
The Monster Squad is one of those films that you know you should not tell any of your friends that you watch, yet you cannot look away. I've stored this film in the 'guilty pleasure' section of my mind and will watch it 'secretly' for many years to come. Hee Hee! Writer/Director Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, House, Robocop 3)has crafted an absolute winner here, and even though it beggars the question," What age group are we aiming at?', it's still a fine little yarn. An old film (circa 1987) that is crying out for the DVD treatment. I can't wait to see Sean and the gang on the digital screen! Whatever happened to Ryan Lambert anyway?

3.0 out of 5 stars A Gate Worth Opening, April 20 2004
The Gate is a fantastically frightening supernatural thriller that will have the kids hiding behind the sofa more than once. A worthless first half is thankfully redeemed by some very impressive special effects in the second half and a terrific sense of atmosphere endures throughout. An old film (circa 1986) but The Gate still holds up well and is worth a look. Of passing interest as Stephen Dorff's first film and one of the better creature features of the 1980's.
