Saturday Night at the Movies! 10/29/11

Who cares what picture we see?

For the final SNatM post for this Halloween Blogfest Blowout, I care, and I am going to send us out of the month of October with more classic monsters, but this time, 80's style...

I adore this loving homage to the old Universal Studios Monster Movies! The monsters are all the classics, and mostly all with fun new designs that build well on the old looks courtesy Stan Winston and crew, and co-writer/director Fred Dekker takes them through their paces in high style as young monster fans do battle with the legendary creatures to save the world. If you've never seen it I definitely recommend it - be aware, however, there's some pretty salty language thrown about, as I discovered not too long ago showing it to two young monster fans after having not seen it for many years.

LGOOH Halloween Blogfest Blowout Extras!

And for this one, we're going to stick right to the Monster Squad theme. Once again the internet brings us the work of some clever filmmakers. What if, 18 years after the original movie, there was a completely unnecessary sequel to The Monster Squad?

It might look like this: (alert - salty language ahead!)

That's funny!

And to wrap up, let's take a look at the original version of The Monster Squad. About 10 years before the movie, there was a Saturday morning Monster Squad series on NBC. Wait until you see who starred in it! It only ran for 13 episodes, but I watched it pretty faithfully through several rounds of repeats when it was on. Here's the opening, the last few minutes of an episode, and the closing, all in one compact video.

So there you go! All the Monster Squads you could possibly want! Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
