Wow, it sure feels strange actually talking about the realistic truth that yes, Monster Squad is coming to DVD. For so long MS and Fred Dekker’s other horror/comedy masterpiece Night of the Creeps (read Sean’s latest Horror’s Hallowed Grounds for that here) have been the holy grails of untapped DVDs, and now, finally, one of them is actually happening.
Wait, what the hell am I talking about? The folks over at HorrorHound, who seem to know more than they’re letting on, have received the exclusive word that Lionsgate will be releasing Monster Squad on DVD in the near future and that it will not be bare bones by any stretch of the imagination! Of all the companies out there I really saw Anchor Bay getting to this one first, but as long as Lionsgate knows what they have on their hands (and from the sounds of it, they do), the fans are going to be happy.
More details were not forthcoming as of yet; however, the next issue of HorrorHound (read my review of Issue #4 here) will be on stands next month and will feature a huge retrospective on Monster Squad including interviews with director Fred Dekker, cast, crew and all the marketing materials they could find, which as you may know is what HorrorHound’s specialty is. Look for it at bigger and better bookstores across the country in March!
And of course the very instant there is more on the DVD release of Monster Squad, you will be the first to hear it!
