The Monster Squad ★★★★

"Creature stole my Twinkie."


Wonderfully quick chiller/comedy that fires on all cylinders. The monsters all look terrific here. Clearly inspired by Ghostbusters, but this does its own thing, especially given the main cast are kids. As a nice bonus, the kids are all fun to watch. This also has that self-awareness in which I really enjoyed. If you want something chilling and some laughs in under 90 minutes, this is right up your alley. I found this on Prime which is now crawling with horror films as I use it for Shudder, and let's just say I'm glad I found this gem. Dracula and Frankenstein's monster are both top tier here and really shine here. They just don't make them like this anymore.
