Get ready to relive the thrills of the ’80s with the remastered release of the cult classic ‘The Monster Squad.’ This beloved film is set to make its chilling debut on 4K Ultra HD in a special three-disc set from Kino Lorber, hitting the shelves on November 28.
This upgraded home media release is a treat for fans, offering a treasure trove of bonus content. You can dive deep into the film’s secrets with two audio commentaries.

After 36 years since its debut, ‘The Monster Squad’ still stands as an enduring fixture among ’80s cult classics.
Despite a less-than-spectacular box office debut in 1987, ‘The Monster Squad’ has grown into an ’80s cult classic. It brings together a group of kids with a passion for Universal Monsters, who find themselves facing these iconic creatures, including Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy, the Wolfman, and Gill-Man, as they rise from Limbo. Together, these young heroes must battle the forces of evil that threaten their small town.
Over the years, the film’s loving tribute to classic Universal horror films from the Golden Age of Hollywood has solidified its status as a genre classic. It has even left its mark on contemporary projects like ‘Stranger Things.’ Now, with the upcoming 4K Ultra HD release, both devoted fans and a new generation can experience the spine-tingling magic of ‘The Monster Squad’ like never before when it arrives this Fall.
