It’s a well-known fact that THE MONSTER SQUAD is better than it’s big-budget Goonies rival. As beloved as it is today, SQUAD bombed on initial release and might have been lost forever without the advent of home video.
Over the last 20 years the film’s popularity has grown from a cult classic to classic, period.
Directed by the film’s very own Andre Gower and produced by Henry McComas, WOLFMAN’S GOT NARDS is a beautiful doc that explores how these misfits and monsters have affected so many people over the last few decades.
Featuring interviews with the entire cast, writer Shane Black, director Fred Dekker and armies of famous fans, this is the definitive and touching chronicle of how our favourite came to fruition.
From the genuine, wipe-the-tears-away moment when the cast discusses the passing of Brent Chalem and how he would’ve loved the film’s newfound fame to the profound sadness felt as Dekker describes seeing his film on opening weekend with only six people in the theatre, WOLFMAN’S GOT NARDS is a powerful testament to how this little film that could changed the lives of all it touched in some profound way, cementing an enduring bond of love and admiration for one of the best films of the 80s.
