West Coast Premiere

This will be the second time we have welcomed THE MONSTER SQUAD into Beyond Fest’s open arms and we will not apologise for that! It is, after all, one of the greatest films of the 80’s.

What’s not to love? Frankenstein, Dracula, the Creature and the Mummy join forces to take over the world and only a group of horror-obsessed kids from the ‘burbs can stop them!

The kind of breezy yarn that could have easily come from Amblin Entertainment, Fred Dekker and Shane Black’s beloved story moves along at a tremendous pace, with the dialogue featuring so many all-time best one-liners that a Beyond Fest quote-a-long is probably overdue.

THE MONSTER SQUAD’s practical effects and creature work by master of the craft Stan Winston are absolutely incredible, rendering the film as scary as it is funny and ensuring its spot on the shelf alongside the Universal Classic Monster films it pays respect to. Beyond Fest is beyond thrilled to have the Squad back in town!
