Vampiress Review: "The Monster Squad"

The Gist:  A group of teenage monster hunters are in competition with Dracula for an ambulate that prevents monsters from taking over.

Clarification:  The 1980's were full of teenage group adventure movies most of which were very popular and this one is no different.  Basically this film is The Goonies vs Universal Monsters instead of Pirates.

Selling Point: If you like classic style 80's adventure movies this is a decent one.

Female Vampire Factor:  Since the lead monster is Dracula (the literary version and not just a vampire with a cloak) He does take three brides who are random schoolgirls.  They're only seen toward the films end when Dracula is coming after the kids.
In fact, the only time you even get a good look at them is when they're getting killed.
Outside of that it really isn't a vampire film as much as a film that happens to have vampires in it.  I give the film a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.
