If you took The Goonies, but replaced pirates with Universal Studio’s back horror catalogue, you’d have The Monster Squad. Small town kids with smart mouths battle Dracula, the Wolfman (who, we learn in the movie’s single most quoted scene, does indeed have “nards”), the creature from the black lagoon, and Frankenstein’s Monster. It’s an ideal Halloween adventure, one we can’t believe isn’t to this holiday what A Christmas Story is to Christmas. The 20th anniversary Blu-ray is fitting tribute.
