To Horror, with Love: Cinema’s Biggest Genre Fans – Sean Crenshaw from The Monster Squad (1987)

  • DailyDead
[Hello, readers! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we here at Daily Dead thought it would be fun to do things a little different this year. We're putting the spotlight on our favorite horror-loving characters from genre cinema, people who have represented our own fandom on screen and, in many cases, helped bring our passion for horror into the mainstream. Be sure to check back here on Daily Dead every day through Valentine's Day for our tributes to some of the greatest horror fans to ever grace the big screen.]

The history of horror movies is full of Monster Kids—those young boys and girls obsessed with all things horror who are, sooner or later, able to put all of their knowledge gathered from hours spent in front of Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolf Man to good use. From Tommy Jarvis in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter to Paula in Neon Maniacs, the genre knows that the quickest way to our horror-loving hearts is through representation and identification: us fans love seeing some version of ourselves on screen acting out the fantasy of standing side by side with axe murderers and fantastic beasts. There are few things more satisfying to a young horror fan than seeing one of our own go toe to toe with a nasty creature and come out on top.

There is no better example of this in all of horror cinema than Sean Crenshaw, the

30 Things We Learned From ‘The Monster Squad’ Commentary

It’s finally October, the favorite month of fans of both Halloween and all the ghouls, ghosts, and goblins that come with that.

Looking back at The Monster Squad

Ignored at the box office, 80s comedy horror The Monster Squad has since gained a devoted following. Glen takes a look back at a cult favourite...

As something of a monster-obsessed child growing up, I lapped up any kind of monster-related goodies I could get my hands on, whether it was things like Monster in my Pocket or monster-related movies or books, few things piqued my interest in the way that these little nasties could.

So, when I saw an ex-rental VHS copy of The Monster Squad offered up for sale at a local video store, I pestered my parents to buy it for me and soon discovered what would be one of my favourite and most watched movies as a child. It featured classic monsters and the protagonists were in the same age range as me. Sure, they would have been a little older and live on the other side of the Atlantic,

Where Everyone Has Gone Before #15: 'The Monster Squad'

Where Everyone Has Gone Before #15: 'The Monster Squad'
Filed under: Halloween, Horror, Cinematical

Welcome to Where Everyone Has Gone Before, the column in which I continue my film education before your very eyes by seeking out and watching all of the movies we all know I should have seen by now. I will first judge the movie before I've watched it, based entirely on its reputation (and my potentially misguided thoughts). Then I will give the movie a fair chance and actually watch it. You will laugh at me, you may condemn me, but you will never say I didn't try! And we all know what Yoda said about trying.

The Film: 'The Monster Squad' (1987), Dir. Fred Dekker

Starring: Andre Gower, Robby Kiger, Stephen Macht, Duncan Regehr and Tom Noonan.

Why I Haven't Seen It Until Now: I've been burnt by 1980s movies far too many times. Nostalgia is a powerful beast, blinding even the most
