July 24 is a long time coming for me. Not only has The Monster Squad never been available on DVD, but it's never shown on cable and the only VHS versions available were probably pressed in the early '90s. On July 24 it's finally going to happen with The Monster Squad: 20th Anniversary Edition on DVD, and to celebrate I'm hosting my inaugural blog-a-thon with THE MONSTER SQUAD-A-THON on that same date. I've been planning this for a long time, but what set it in stone was the confirmation of a VERY SPECIAL GUEST who will help make this event something even the 'Squad would be proud of.
Don't let the title fool you, it's not reserved just for posts about The Monster Squad as there are probably plenty of you out there who are not familiar with or have just plum forgot about Fred Dekker's classic. No, THE MONSTER SQUAD-A-THON will be a day to celebrate all movie monsters -- whether in the literal of figurative sense (human-looking monsters like Max Cady and Frank Booth are definitely welcome). I'm definitely going to be producing a few Monster Squad-related posts, including a review of the DVD and a visit from the aforementioned VERY SPECIAL GUEST. It will run all week starting July 24, so clean out your closets and check under your beds for any interested monsters.
'Who are you guys?'
'We're the Monster Squad!'
