FULL DESCRIPTION

When Fred Dekker and Shane Black's The Monster Squad was released into theatres in 1987, it was considered a critical and box office flop. Destined for the discount VHS dustbin of history, something funny happened. The Monster Squad found its people. And its people took The Monster Squad into their hearts. WOLFMAN'S GOT NARDS is the story of The Monster Squad's rise from flop to cult classic on the bat-like wings of monster kids everywhere.

Directed by Monster Squad star André Gower (Sean) and featuring cast mates Ryan
Lambert (Rudy) and Ashley Bank (Phoebe the Feeb), WOLFMAN'S GOT NARDS is a lighthearted and nostalgic exploration of the relationship between the audience and the film that has kept The Monster Squad roaring for over 30 years. Featuring interviews with the filmmakers such as Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, RoboCop 3) and Shane Black (The Predator, The Nice Guys, Iron Man 3) as well as horror fans turned horror icons like Adam Green (Hatchet), and special effects and makeup legend Tom Woodruff Jr., as well as industry screenwriters, directors, and commentators, WOLFMAN'S GOT NARDS asks, "What makes a cult film?" and "What about The Monster Squad" resonates with fans all these years later?"

If you love The Monster Squad, then this doc’s definitely going to have some serious nards for you. (Aaron Allen)
