Iconic as the creature design is(I've literally seen it a 1000's of times in magazines and comics for decades) I'm ashamed to say I have never seen this movie.I cant explain why-I saw every other monster B movie in existence but this movie always eluded my radar ....I am off to rectify this forthwith. The pic is a beaut' by the way.

this movie set in Transylvania or something like that & it dealt with a town being terrorized my four or five "monsters", but they ended up just being people with genectic problems & deformities. I remember watching as a kid in the 80s, I also remember lots of smoke-machine usage in the movie. ANYBODY???HELP??

Any juicy details on that stalled (and ultimatley cancelled) production. I would have loved to see Carpenter tackle this in his prime<P>Speaking of projects that never were, are you still planing on doing a feature that would delve into projects that could have been?
Oct. 12, 2010, 8:29 p.m. CST
I believe you're thinking of the film "The Monster Squad." At least that is what comes to mind from your description.
Oct. 12, 2010, 8:38 p.m. CST
Yes, it is Transylvania 6-5000!! Awesome! & thanks anyway JFilm. heres the descript from Wiki "Transylvania 6-5000 (1985) is a movie about two tabloid reporters who travel to modern-day Transylvania to uncover the truth behind Frankenstein sightings. Along the way, they encounter other horror movie staples — a mummy, a werewolf, a vampire — each with a twist". And it stars Goldblum & Ed Begley Jr.

And it looks friggin great. Also got me a full size bust of the creature mask in my office, as well a statue of the creature swimming. As an avid freediver and spearfisherman in the Pacific NW, I love the Creature. If only I could get some gills....

The man in the suit (man in the suit, etc) is still working today at 80. Saw his name in the credits of Boardwalk Empire as marine co-ordinator. That's pretty darn cool, still top of his game late in life.

Rumor has it that James Arness or his brother Peter Graves prior to their long running TV programs; Gunsmoke and Mission Impossible, respectively.
