Review: “The Monster Squad” is a mix of a lot of things. It’s “The Goonies” meets “The Lost Boys” meets “Ghostbusters” meets “The Little Rascals”. Especially eighties kids will love this movie, because it’s full of nostalgia.
Count Dracula and his groups of monster sidekicks is ready to take over the world. But they didn’t know about “The Monster Squad”, a groups of school kids that love monster stories.
“The Monster Squad” is for us geeks, it’s a fun eighties flick that will entertain you during the entire runtime. I think this film gained a cult status over the years. It’s also obvious that the ‘80s were more tolerable, because there is a lot of swearing and there are sexual references in this family movie.
For anyone that is from the eighties, this will be a treat.

Rating: 4/ 5
