A fun, love-letter to folks who really love the 1987 film.

I was fortunate enough to catch this at Louisville Supercon with Andre, Ashley, & Ryan presenting. The whole scene was surreal. But even separated from the event itself; I fell in love with this documentary.

It isn't a 'making of', though there are wonderful behind the scenes from the perspective of cast, crew, and peeks into the truly *epic* creature design. It isn't a 'biopic', though there is some heartful insight on the people within & behind 'The Monster Squad'. It isn't just a 'fan tribute', though I found out about other artists who love the Squad just as much as I do, entire collections of memorabilia, and limited run festivals that I *really* wish I had been a part of and will be keeping a closer eye on in the future.

This, overall, is just a fun love-letter to folks who really love the 1987 film.

And it's directed by 'Sean' himself.
