    I got out my projector and watched this with the kids tonight. They have never seen this before (it's probably been about 15 years since I last watched it) and they absolutely loved it. The movie still holds up very well. They don't make films like this anymore.

    I watched this recently for the first time since I was a kid. A great movie from start to finish, and I was especially surprised at all of the non-PC scenes with the kids. One of the best DVD releases of the year.

    Since nobody replied... :lol:

    By the way, little thing I noticed... Am I crazy or is the music in the beginning of the trailer for Monster Squad the same music from Fright Night??

    I thought the same thing. I really enjoyed watching this. BTW, the music was terrible, but added to the charm. :lol:

    I thought the very same thing when I watched it. That of course does not mean we aren't both crazy.

    I really enjoyed watching it again. It's a great movie with a great dvd. It's nice to wait so long and get a DVD worthy of the movie for a change.

    This is one of those films I never saw as a kid. I remember not being interested in it at because it looked "childish". I did like "Night of the Creeps" (only saw it recently) but I'm curious about the cult fever that "The Monster Squad" seems to have inspired. I haven't seen any copies for sale, but I might pick it up if I ever do.

    Anybody from Canada who's DVD was missing the insert e-mail Lionsgate about getting another one? I have tried several times and none of my e-mails will go through, so just wondering if anyone ended up getting a replacement and if it's worth it?

    There's a store around here that sells everything from DVD's to video games. They had a bunch of Monster Squad DVDs sealed in the package for $7, plus it was buy 2 get one free. Needless to say all my friends own copies on Monster Squad now. I'm guessing they must have fallen off a truck or something.

    Van Helsing is awesome when he gives that maniacal, Heston-esque thumbs-up at the end as he's been sucked into some black hole, Elysian field of vampire killing. It's the universal hand gesture.

    Monster Squad is dirt cheap now pretty much everywhere, $7.50-$9. And yet I still haven't bought it.

    I don't know if you guys know about this, but I think Intrada released the soundtrack album to coincide with the DVD release.

    Broughton's score kicks ass, so if you love the music, you can order it at Intrada's official website.
