Dracula, Werewolf and Mummy, Oh My!
When I originally saw The Monster Squad in the theater back in '87, I'm sure I thought it was a pretty cool flick (even my girlfriend went; it was the only thing playing in the little Illinois town where we were staying en route to Carbondale). Dracula summoning all the classic Universal Monsters in an attempt to takeover the world? Sign me up! However, upon this viewing this cult classic plays more camp than cool. It's a lot like The Goonies but with monsters. Might be ripe for remake but I think that's already on the map.
