Growing up, I wanted to be a member of The Monster Squad. They were the Ghostbusters but younger, The Lost Boys but living, The Karate Kid but with friends. And they could curse and shoot shotguns. Fred Dekkar‘s salute to childhood and Universal monsters didn’t do too well at the box office, but has since become an all-time cult classic. Fans of the film probably also know that his first movie, Night of the Creeps, enjoys the same kind of underground success and fans of both those films have something very special happening Saturday night in Los Angeles. Something I’m proud to be a part of.

Monster Creeps is a one night only tribute to the first two films of director Fred Dekkar: Night of the Creeps and The Monster Squad. It begins at 8 p.m. with a two hour gallery show of art inspired by the film during which Dekkar will a signing. Then, once that’s over, things shift over to a Q&A that I’ll be hosting with the writer/director before an intimate screening of The Monster Squad.

After the jump, check out a bunch of art from the show and read all the information you’ll need to attend. Hope to see you there. Read More »
