The trailer reveals what we can expect and is a love letter to the 80s monster film from Fred Dekker, which has been under the control for more than three decades.
We have a brand new trailer for Wolfman’s Got Nards. This is a new documentary all about The Monster Squad, the cult classic from 1987. It has been in work for a long time and was completed back in 2018 As is often the case, however, it took a while to find distribution. Gravitas Ventures is finally ready to share it for the world to see. The trailer reveals what we can expect and is a love letter to the 80s monster film of director Fred Dekker that has endured for more than three decades under the controls.
The trailer begins with fans of the film explaining how they came across it and how much they love it. Was rented in the video store or even bootleg DVDs – the film managed to find its audience in the years after its unceremonious release. Much of the doc focuses on a 30th anniversary reunion tour for The Monster Squad which took place several years ago and became an unexpectedly big hit with audiences around the country. Many of the screenings sold out to the surprise of those involved in the original production. The documentary, outside of focusing on these screenings and the fans, looks to explore how the film unexpectedly gained this cult following.
The original movie revolves around a group of five children who confront Dracula, the Mummy, the Gill Man and Frankenstein’s Monster who have combined forces in search of a magic amulet. The documentary was directed by the original castmember Andre Gower. It stars Adam F. Goldberg, Heather Langenkamp, Chuck Russell, Adam Green, Ryan Lambert, Andre Gower, Adam Dekker, Shane Black, Seth Green, and many more.
The Monster Squad, originally released in 1987, was widely criticised and a flop at the box office. But over the last three decades word of mouth has turned it into a sleeper hit and a cultural phenomenon among genre fans. The documentary explores the relationship a devotee audience has with the film. It offers an in-depth look into the film’s development, response, cult status and eventual revival. Through interviews with cast, crew, screenwriters, directors, academics and original critics, it turns the lens on a population of self-proclaimed’religious misfits’ that have kept it alive for more than 30 years. The documentary also features footage never before seen.
The documentaire ran on the festival circuit in 2018, with stops at Overlook, Cinepocalypse, Monster Fest, Beyond Fest and more. It takes its title from one of the most famous lines of the original film. It is voiced by Horace played by the late Brent Chalem who kicks Wolfman in the groin to discover that Wolfman actually has nards. The film was produced by Pilgrim Media Group and Fitterpiper Entertainment. On Oct 27 it arrives on VOD of Gravitas Ventures just in time for Halloween. Don’t forget to check out the trailer for yourself.
