Welcome to the Retroist “Monster Squad” VIDEO Podcast. On today’s show we talk all about the eighties horror classic, The Monster Squad. This film is a cult classic that sometimes gets overlooked in the crowded field of eighties cult films. I start off by talking about how having missed seeing the film when it came out gave my friends the opportunity to pull a long running joke on me. Then I cover the movie’s plot, production, cast, and much more.
This came out during the summer, but I think with Halloween approaching, this is the perfect time to revisit Dave Perillo’s wonderful take on the Monster Squad’s Guide on how to kill monsters. Pay special attention to how to take out that pesky Wolfman.
This is a great shirt from found item clothing. If you are confused as to the pop culture significance of this beauty…
The Monster Squad was a definite favorite growing up, and now, it has finally made its way to DVD! A long overdue release if there ever was one. To celebrate the release of this underrated 80’s classic, we’ve recreated the Stephen King Rules shirt worn in the movie. To bring this shirt back to life, we remade the font from scratch to ensure the proper 80’s lettering style. Simple, yet striking, Stephen King Rules is printed on red American Apparel t-shirts.
