    Sorry no new news on a dvd but I thought some people here may want to bring back a few good memories with these 2 goodies:

    I wish I never had seen the movie. So I could enjoy the newness of it again.
    Amazing how they took the popularity from The Goonies, and made this gem.

    Remember:

    "Hey fat kid, nice job! My name is Horace!" (then he cocks the shotgun)
    "Hey Asshole! You looked!"
    "Give me the amulet, you bitch!" (I always thought that part was pretty intense, screaming that in the little girls face)

    I remember renting this from the local mom and pop video store when I was about ten years old and loving it. It's been so long since I've seen it I really wonder how well it holds up. At the very least I'm sure watching it again will drum up a strong sense of nostalgia in me. I'm switching from cable to Dish Network in a few days so I'll be able to catch it on Monsters HD I guess.

    It does, in my opinion. It has enough edge to keep it not childish. The Goonies still holds up. I think this movie does as well.

    true enough. I just watched The Goonies a couple of months ago and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

    This movie tried so hard to be the Goonies, they even got the Mikey's mother in the Goonies to play the lead kid's mom. :lol:

    It's still a great, great movie though and a part of my childhood. It's sad that we'll probably never get a DVD release of this cult gem.

    I only got to see this film for the first time a few months ago, thanks to a bootleg DVD-R. I really enjoyed it and understand why people would have loved it when they were younger!

    I posted this a while back:

    There are a couple of petitions online.

    http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/TheMonsterSquad

    http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/monstersquad


    Can't hurt to sign. I think there was some other older petitions started , that had many more sigs.

    And Demon posted this a couple months back:

    If you want a MONSTER SQUAD DVD write to:
    Mr. Sumner M. Redstone
    Viacom
    1515 Broadway
    New York, NY 10036


    Again can't hurt to write.

    Dekker:


    With older features constantly in ownership flux, it’s often hard to get a rerelease off the ground, and Dekker is not exactly hopeful when it comes to DVDs of CREEPS or MONSTER SQUAD. “I’ve had many overtures from DVD producers, but the people who control the rights to those movies (Sony and Spelling Entertainment, respectively) don’t have a clue that anybody cares,” Dekker says. ”It’s too bad, because I’d love to do a director’s cut of CREEPS that incorporates the original, real ending (which has turned up on some cable-TV airings). And it’d be nice to see SQUAD in widescreen again, as it was meant to be.”

    I actually never saw Monster Squad until about a week ago! I got my hands on a nice looking anamorphic print (wrong aspect ratio though)...I really enjoyed it. I can't believe some of the stuff this PG-13 comedy got away with!

    I saw this for the first time recently (Yes, I downloaded it.. So what?) and I really enjoyed it. I would definitely buy a DVD if it were released, especially alongside Night Of The Creeps. Those are two of my most anticipated DVD releases... Right next to Harry and The Hendersons & Howard The Duck.

    I know, thats why I always felt it was The Goonies with an edge.



    P.S. -- Fred Dekker himself has said. The only way to get the films release on DVD was to write an honest to God snail mail letter campaign to the rights holders. Simply write WE WANT MONSTER SQUAD/NIGHT OF THE CREEPS on DVD now! Write it down, put a stamp on it and send it in.

    Ah, the memories. I'm confident this is going to be released on DVD someday. I just hope that day comes sooner than later.
