FLASHBACK: Episode 10- The Monster Squad

This week’s new podcast is temporarily delayed, so for the time being here’s a Halloween episode from last year! Episode 10- The Monster Squad from October 2011… were we ever so young? Don’t forget to subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

What would happen if a bunch of scrappy Goonies-esque pre-teen boys joined forces with a creepy old man, who happens to be a Holocaust survivor, to fight an all-star line-up of movie monsters, including The Mummy, The Wolfman, and Count Dracula? The Monster Squad, that’s what.

It’s one of Blain’s favourite childhood movies, but the rest of the Rewatchability gang was less familiar with it. Does The Monster Squad stand the test of time? Is there more than one way to kill a werewolf? Does Dracula need to use so much dynamite? Is it wrong to try and create narrative parallels between a bunch of kids fighting make-believe monsters and the tragedy of The Holocaust? We attempt to answer these questions and more!

Episode 10- The Monster Squad
