    Anyone remember these movies? HORRIBLE stuff....
    Saw them as a kid, and I would kill for them on DVD - or even VHS (shudder). Any suggestions on where to find these gems? Or any thoughts on the possibilty of a DVD release?
    Also, I'd appreciate any info on sites related to these flicks....I can't seem to find info that they even exist.
    My fav scenes (from the last time I saw both, about 10 years ago) have to be:
    In The Monster Squad, the scene where the kids are spying on the girl next door from their tree house and the scene near the end with the Dracula babes.
    In Spookies, the odd birthday chase scene with Angus Black, and the downbeat end.
    Reminisce with me, and convince me I'm not crazy [​IMG]

    Oh god, Spookies was one of the very first laserdiscs I bought- it was $6.88 at Camelot music (bought it along with Drive-in Massacre for $15.88, still a low price by LD standards!) The disc is laser-rotted pretty badly too, it was made by Technidisc which is regarded as the very worst laserdisc manufacturer ever!
    I heard this was actually 2 unfinished movies edited together, which explains the kid at the beginning sort of being forgotten about. The cover says this actually won some sort of sci-fi/horror fan award, so I expected it to actually be good!

    Holy crap! I remember seeing that on the cover! And now that you say, 2 movies edited together makes a lotta sense.
    Thanks for the info, Jesse....

    I'd happily purchase Monster Squad...I do remember Dracula's babes as well. But not the details. Pics I say!

    Take care,
    Chuck

    I have Monster Squad taped off Skinamax. Terriable movie, but I would buy it if released.
