You're thinking of the nowhere-near-as-cool-as-Monster Squad 1989 Fred Savage "vehicle" Little Monsters.

again, this so-called 'news' does not really surprise me -

http://www.slashfilm.com/2010/03/18/platinum-dunes-producing-remake-of-the-monster-squad/

does this bother me? not really. I love THE MONSTER SQUAD. personally, I enjoy it a hundred times more than THE GOONIES, it means that much to me. Remake of it will NEVER match the 1987 classic and it will not effect my love for the original.


"Fred Dekkerís 1987 movie The Monster Squad, written by Dekker and Shane Black, is a film that couldnít be made today. Not because it was groundbreaking, but because it has a blend of enthusiastic naivite, fun effects, and young actors that donít look like they were cloned from the same attractive DNA and grown in a vat hidden in Santa Monica."

My feelings exactly.

To this day, whenever my best mate asks me a question about THE GOONIES, I always begin my reply with "Oh, you mean that film that isn't nowhere near as good as THE MONSTER SQUAD? yeah, what about it...?"
 
It pisses him off

Watched it recently for the first time since in about 10 years. At school me and my mates used to play Monster Squad, I always wanted to be Sean but being the lard-ass I was back then I always had to be Fat Kid. Related note I love the score by Bruce Broughton btw.

Got this from Wikipedia:

A 20th Anniversary Reunion of The Monster Squad was held with cast members and Director Fred Dekker in attendance in April 2006 in Austin, Texas at the Alamo Drafthouse. This reunion was put together by the staff at Ain't It Cool News, who were longtime fans of the film and on a whim decided to reach out and try to connect the cast for a special screening. Two shows were held at the theatre; both sold out with lines formed around the block; some audience members flew from as far as California to watch the film. It was at this screening that Dekker had urged any interested fans to write the copyright holders via snail-mail.[1] Ain't It Cool News also broke the news of the DVD release in January, 2007. Michael Felsher of Red Shirt Pictures approached Lionsgate Studios to produce and release the 20th anniversary edition.
The Monster Squad two-disc 20th anniversary special edition DVD was released by Lionsgate on July 24, 2007, and contains a wide range of special features including a 5-part 90 minute retrospective documentary, 2 audio commentaries, deleted scenes, the theatrical trailer, a TV spot, animated storyboards, and more.[2] A soundtrack album is available from the Intrada label.
The Alamo Drafthouse held 2 sold-out screenings of the Monster Squad on January 9, 2010 with stars Andre Gower, Ryan Lambert, and Jon Gries along with writer Shane Black and director Fred Dekker all in attendance. The screenings were celebrated with a limited edition poster by artist Tyler Stout.
The special edition DVD also makes a few references to the death of Brent Chalem, who played "Horace", of pneumonia in 1997. Chalem was working as a paralegal at the time of his death.[3]
Lionsgate released a Blu-ray version of the film on November 24, 2009

Watched this for the first time in ages the other week so glad that most of it still holds up. The end is a bit cheesy, I wouldn't be adversed to a remake but it would have to keep with the spirt of the original.

Horace: Man, you sure know a lot about monsters.
Scary German Guy: Now that you mention it, I suppose I do. (Holocaust tattoo reveled)

Really brave not to mention brilliant.

This film was a staple part of my childhood. Unforunately my DVD copy is a bit of a bad transfer...

It's a classic. The U.S. blu-ray (now deleted) is indeed, a highly recommended one. I hope that proposed 'remake' by Mr. Bay's "Let's Fuck It All Up And Upset The Fans" Factory doesn't happen.
