Specifically, the lasting strength and appeal of The Monster Squad.

Never heard of it? No worries. That’s the power of cult film: that an obscure movie can be a driver of community and passion that’s foreign to those outside of it but everything to the people in it.

Enter Wolfman’s Got Nards, a documentary detailing the death and cult rebirth of The Monster Squad, from its 1987 flop to its profound resurgence among fans ever since. There are a lot of documentaries about this sort of topic, but this one seems to pop with a unique verve and excitement—there’s a level of polish here you don’t often get in this sort of production. I know very little about this movie, but this has me thrilled to learn more.

(Full disclosure: Our very own Germain Lussier was interviewed for this documentary, and appears briefly in the trailer.)

Odd, seeing it be called a cult film, though it is for me. I thought it was entertaining. I’ve been looking to catch this on TV for sometime, but I guess I’ve been missing out on it for decades if it has, so I just thought it was one of those films that faded into the ether. Good to hear about it.
