Phoebe and Frankie by WonderDookie Phoebe and Frankie by WonderDookie
Anna and I watched Monster Squad a couple of nights ago, and I just had to do this drawing afterward.

If you haven't seen the film you should check it out. It's very 80's and they get away with a lot of stuff that you REALLY couldn't put in a children's movie nowadays, namely kids acting like kids.

I'm already getting into the Halloween mood! I think I'm overcompensating for being in the southern hemisphere this year.

3 Halloween drawings so far. Somebody's going to think you don't have a life.
But then they'll discover that you live in Dunedin and forgive you. So don't panic!
Do I have any comments for this drawing that you submitted on this art website? - No.

I never saw Monster Squad! I always heard it was a lot of fun, but never got around to it. I guess I really have to see it, after seeing this drawing. Great work, I really like how you drew the girl's face.

I'm sure I've still got this on tape somewhere, used to be one of my favs as a kid. "Dear army guys, there are monsters, come quick" AND THEY DO! Fantastic! Always wanted to try that.

Yeah, there's the bit in the middle of the movie where they do the musical 80's music montage, and it took me right back to my childhood.

I have not seen that. I'll have to look it up.

Thanks! I think you'll enjoy the film. It's really good.

Another awesome Halloween movie is Trick 'R Treat. That newer film. It's more of a full on horror movie (Pretty gorey in parts), but it really has the Halloween feel to it.

Just finished watching Monster Squad, and I must say it's a gem. It was genuinely funny. And you're right, the kids really do act like kids in this movie instead of mini adults.
