Wolfman’s Got Nards

The Monster Squad is a profane, overly violent, innuendo filled 80’s kids movie. I’m familiar with both genres the movie is trying to juggle. The cliché filled boys only adventure group movie. And the classic Universal monster team up movie. They don’t really blend well together. It’s hard to know what the demographic is, because of the PG-13 rating. Every kind of 80’s trope is being exploited here. Plus the movie is only an hour and 22 minutes long. To be honest, it doesn’t really leave that big of an impression. Not that it isn’t so bad its good. The monster makeup is alright and the action is pretty creative. I wouldn’t read too much into it. If you like classic movie monsters, then The Monster Squad is worth its short runtime.
