Wolfman’s Got Nards

When it was released in 1987, The Monster Squad was deemed a failure by critics and was, according to the box office, a film no one cared about. But over the last three decades, word of mouth has turned this sleeping hit into a cultural phenomenon.

Wolfman’s Got Nards explores the relationship a dedicated audience (including celebrities and filmmakers) has with The Monster Squad. This documentary takes an in-depth look into the film’s conception, response, cult status, and revival. Through interviews with the cast, crew, screenwriters, directors, academics and original reviewers as well as through never-before-seen footage, it turns the lens on an audience of self-proclaimed misfits who have kept The Monster Squad alive for more than thirty years.

Wolfman’s Got Nards premiered April 7th, 2018. It won the Audience Award at the Overlook Film Festival as well as playing at Beyond Fest, Frightfest, The Salem Horror Fest, Popcorn Frights, and Cinepocalypse.
