The Monster Squad

The Monster Squad is a 1987 horror comedy film written by Shane Black and Fred Dekker and directed by Fred Dekker. It was released by Tri-Star Pictures on August 14, 1987. The film features the Universal Monsters, led by Count Dracula. They, in turn, combat a group of savvy kids out to keep them from controlling the world. This is also a twist on horror films as it re-imagines classic monsters unleashed in a 1980s setting.
