Mind you this was in the pre-internet days when a movie could sneak up on you with no warning. She explained the premise and I just stood there dumbfounded....."So let me get this straight, there's a movie, where all the famous monsters, even The Creature From The Black Lagoon, get together in modern times, to try to take over the world, and the only people who can stop them are this "Monster Squad" and this squad is comprised of little kids? I'm sorry WHAT?! Are you fucking kidding me!? Yes I want to see that movie you goddamn bitch!!!" This is all verbatim.
|Gentlemen, I'd just like to say three words:.Holy. Fucking. Shit.|
|We've really got Skynet by the balls now|
Stan Winston knocks it out of the park as usual with his creature designs. They are all A-class monsters, especially The Creature From The Black Lagoon (or Gillman as he's referred in this iteration). The original Creature design is one of my all time favorites, so the fact that Stan was able to update that design while still making the character identifiable is amazing. One of the best 'man in suit' designs ever. Originally the film was pitched and picked up by Universal Pictures, which meant they could use the classic, copy-written make up designs. From what I understand they were hard at work on updated versions of all the classic when the deal fell through for some reason. My guess is Universal was nervous about the subject matter in relation to kids, and they had their own intentions of rebooting their franchises. So as much as I love the movie, and the monsters in it, part of me always wonder what may have been if they full on used the original designs.
