Growing up I think many of us wanted to be a member of THE MONSTER SQUAD. Films like that, back in the day, gave you a sense of community that you rarely saw in horror. It was like its own special secret society and the films like THE MONSTER SQUAD and NIGHT OF THE CREEPS have become cult-clascs to say the least.
According to SlashFilms.com.
"Monster Creeps is a one night only tribute to the first two films of director Fred Dekkar: Night of the Creeps and The Monster Squad. It begins at 8 p.m. with a two hour gallery show of art inspired by the film during which Dekkar will a gning. Then, once that’s over, things shift over to a Q&A that I’ll be hosting with the writer/director before an intimate screening of The Monster Squad."
