Wolfman's Got Nards Trailer

"Scaring the hell out of kids seemed like a good idea…" An official trailer has launched for a documentary titled Wolfman's Got Nards, a film about the huge cult success of the 1987 monster movie The Monster Squad. The title is an obvious reference to one of the film's iconic lines, where Horace yells out "Wolfman's got nards!" When the film was first released, it wasn't a big box office hit and didn't get great reviews, but over the last 30 years it has become a hugely popular beloved genre classic. This "heartfelt" documentary explores the power of cult film and the impact this amusing cult classic has had on fans, cast and crew, and the industry. For those who don't know, The Monster Squad was directed by Fred Dekker and co-written by Shane Black, two key names in the industry who were relatively unknown at the time. I dig the footage of the old Monster Squad VHS going into the tape player in this trailer, and later the DVD, too. Check it out.

Here's the first official trailer for Andre Gower's documentary Wolfman's Got Nards, from YouTube:

When it was released in 1987, The Monster Squad was deemed a failure by critics and was, according to the box office, a film no one cared about. But over the last three decades, word of mouth has turned this sleeping hit into a cultural phenomenon. Wolfman's Got Nards explores the relationship a dedicated audience (including celebrities and filmmakers) has with The Monster Squad. This documentary takes an in-depth look into the film’s conception, response, cult status, and revival. Through interviews with the cast, crew, screenwriters, directors, academics and original reviewers as well as through never-before-seen footage, it turns the lens on an audience of self-proclaimed misfits who have kept The Monster Squad alive for more than thirty years. Wolfman's Got Nards is directed by American actor-filmmaker Andre Gower, making his directorial debut. This premiered at the Chattanooga Film Festival earlier this year. No official release date is set yet, but head to for more info on the film. Who's interested?

My sister and I used to watch it every time it was on.

Well, if there's a drama therapy, why there shouldn't be also a film therapy? This looks like a good example for it ...

A lot of kids identified as a Goonie, I identified with The Monster Squad. A classic that was amazing and still holds up to this day. GD Frankenstein getting sucked into vortex still brings a tear to my eye...
