Monster Busters: Directed by Fred Dekker. With Andre Gower, Robby Kiger, Stephen Macht, Duncan Regehr. A young group of monster fanatics attempt to save their hometown from Count Dracula and his monsters.

“The Monster Squad is a terrific re-telling of the House of Frankenstein, set in the late 80s. A group of young boys unearth an evil secret within the diary of vampire hunter, Dr. Abraham Van Helsing (Dutch, not German, but forgivable). Dracula has returned, and has re-animated Frankensteinu0026#39;s monster, and brought along a innocent, but tortured werewolf, the frightening, Creature of the Black Lagoon-esque Gill-Man, and a 2000-year old Mummy.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe SFX are spectacular, and the make-up and costuming are very well-made. This movie closely follows the the myths and folklore of popular monsters (only wooden stakes and garlic are effective on vampires; even dynamite cannot stop the silver-prone werewolf; etc.)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting is somewhat lacking, but this is a kidu0026#39;s Saturday night drive-in type movie. Only Duncan Regehr (syndicated TVu0026#39;s Zorro) as the truly and unrelentingly evil Dracula is worth mentioning. However, Tom Noonan as the kindly and gentle Frankensteinu0026#39;s monster is a great departure from the malevolence of his counterparts.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHighly recommended.”
