“It’s like shooting a basket in 1987 and it doesn’t go in until 20 years later.”
Believe it or not, Fred Dekker’s The Monster Squad was a bona fide bomb when it was released in theaters back in 1987, which just goes to show that box office doesn’t ever really dictate which films will endure and which will be forgotten. After all, the kids vs. monsters flick is one of the most beloved in the entire horror genre, all these years later. Go figure!
Directed by Andre Gower, who played young Sean in The Monster Squad, Wolfman’s Got Nards is an upcoming documentary that tracks the film from flop to true classic.
“This heartfelt documentary explores the power of cult film told through the lens of the 1987 classic The Monster Squad and the impact it has on fans, cast and crew, and the industry.”
Check out the trailer for the doc, which is currently scooping up awards on the festival scene.
