What's not to love about this great flick?! It's got humor and great moments with the classic monsters, rendered in styles much more in keeping with the Universal tradition than the slick "Van Helsing" (which I do like).
The kids are great, the monsters look good, and the jokes are actually funny. WHEN will this film be released on DVD?! It deserves the special edition treatment.
I've seen this film so many times, first as a youth when it was released, and it never gets boring.
It's campy without being stupid, and tongue-in-cheek antics abound. Anyone notice the odd way that this film and "Evil Dead 2" seem to have shared similar endings? It's kind of strange, really.
ANYWAY, would love to see this released as a nice DVD.
