Charming little stories...
26 August 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

"The Monster Club" is certainly not a masterpiece,but it's fun to watch.All the stories are tongue-in-cheek,so don't take them seriously.It's great to see Vincent Price,John Carradine,Donald Pleasance or Patrick Macgee in the film and the stories are interesting enough to keep a viewer occupied.Absolutely no violence,plenty of black humour and nice(albeit dated)music.If you like English horror movies this one is a must-see.Check it out.
