R.Chetwynd-Hayes is one of the top selling horror writers of the time. Chetwynd meets Eramus and things get allot more interesting.
Eramus was a starving vampire, he takes some of Chetwnd's blood, but not enough to do any harm and to thank him he takes
him to the hottest club in town, a club no normal human can get into, The Monster Club.
While in The Monster Club Chetwynd notices a chart on the wall of monster geneology and Eramus tells him stories of the
monsters that can be created when monsters of different spieces mate.
First off it was cool to see John Carradine and Vincent Price in the same movie, it was way too long coming. Secondly, the
stories are kind of cool. The soundtrack has some great eighties music, some of the best bands of the eighties are monsters
apparently who play at the Monster Club. Now for the bad part. You heard me, the bad part. In the club sequences some of the
background monsters look like store bought masks and Hollywood Toy and Costume on Hollywood Blvd. But that's just minor compared
to the big picture. The girl that played the Humgoo was pretty, as a whole the monster club is major league cool movie with
great performances and great story telling. So I would call the Monster Club a buried treasure worth discovering if you haven't
seen it. 9 STARS.
I couldn't agree more and the fact they background monsters looks like something from a cheap costume store doesn't bother
me in the slightest. This is one of my favorite low-budget movies and if you are a big fan of Carradine and or Price, then
you must add this to your horror movie collection. Just a great movie and I give it...10 STARS and for once I wish I could
