Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dekker plays around imaginatively with the genre while delivering several nice touches."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Goofy monster mash with a touch of negative 'tude."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"For a movie so aesthetically on the ball, it's a shame the screenplay is not the least bit industrious."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"...hasn't aged all that well in the years since its 1987 release..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"unbridled fun for every kid who ever daydreamed about kicking monster ass."
‑ Keith Breese,
"A silly attempt to crossbreed an Our Gang comedy with a classic horror film, which usually means that both genres have reached the end of the line."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Neither scary nor particularly funny."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It can be a bit scary for the youngest of viewers, but it's a fun ride nonetheless, for new and old fans alike."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A silly, half-baked amalgam of The Goonies and Ghostbusters."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"The movie plays like it was written with a power tool."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"classic 80s"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"I'm sure all the Monster Squad enthusiasts will be absolutely thrilled with the package Lionsgate has put together here."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Remains a true horror classic for nearly twenty years because it reaches down deep in to horror fans desires..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
