Wolfmans Got Nards & I Can't Wait For The DVD To Be Released

This is a great scary movie for kids and adults alike...
This little-known GEM of a film & one of my favorites with mostly a cast of unknowns. Stephen Macht (Graveyard Shift& many other stephen King films) & Jason Hervey (older brother, Wayne on Wonder Years) are familiar faces. A great kids frightfest that has the Creature From The Black Lagoon, Mummy, Wolfman, Frankenstein & a really hot & sexy Dracula with his female coven!

A passel of oddball kids fight the dark forces of evil in their small neighborhood with the help of Frankenstein & Scary German Guy (an old Germanic man that is a neighbor). Great plot, cool special effects, some excellent one liners & some wonderful child acting all make for a terrifc family frightfest! Check out the teacher in the beginning of the movie. The kids call her "Meow Mix" because her head is shaped like a cat's head! Great oddball writing in this movie makes it scary & funny!

Wonderful story! I just can't wait for this to come out on DVD!

Quick Tip by . December 06, 2010
For some reason, the combination of vampires and teenagers was very popular amongst movie-goers in the '80s and this is a perfect example of why. Here you have a group of kids who having formed a monster club are the only ones with the knowledge to face off against Dracula, the Wolfman, Gillman, and the Mummy. Frankenstein's Creature is along for the ride, though he becomes an ally for the kids as they must battle it out with the monsters in order to save the world from falling into darkness. …
