If you consider yourself a die-hard fan of the 80's cult classic "The Monster Squad" -- well, you will probably put this down as one of your must-see documentaries of the year!

Check out the trailer for "Wolfman's Got Nards," an upcoming indie documentary that examines how the 1987 box-office flop "The Monster Squad" became one of the most beloved horror comedies of all-time.

The film, which went on to gain a large cult following over the past thirty years, centered on a group of young, pre-teen nerdy horror enthusiasts who band together when they discover their suburban neighborhood is being overrun by an army of monsters, led by Count Dracula.

Directed and produced by former '80s child actor Andre Gower, who actually played Sean Crenshaw in "The Monster Squad," "Wolfman's Got Nards" (which is a reference to a famous quote in the movie) features exclusive interviews with fellow cast members and the movie's creators: director/writer Fred Dekker and writer Shane Black.

Fred Dekker, who also wrote and directed the cult '80s horror movie "Night of the Creeps," would later write for the series "Tales from the Crypt." He would also go on to direct and write "Robocop 3" with comic book legend Frank Miller. Meanwhile, Shane Black became a successful Hollywood screenwriter, whose credits include "Lethal Weapon," "The Last Boy Scout," and "The Long Kiss Goodnight." Black became a successful film director as well, directing and co-writing the Marvel blockbuster "Iron Man 3" and the hard-boiled detective comedies "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" and "The Nice Guys."

(On a side note: Shane Black and Fred Dekker have reunited to co-write the screenplay for this year's "Predator" reboot, for which Black is directing.)

After premiering at this year's Chattanooga Film Festival, "Wolfman's Got Nards" will spend the rest of this summer running on the festival circuit, with screenings set for London's FrightFest and Florida's Popcorn Frights.

The documentary, as of yet, doesn't have an official release date, but you can head on over to the movie's official site "thesquaddoc.com" for all the up-to-the-minute news.

When it was released in 1987, The Monster Squad was deemed a failure by critics and was, according to the box office, a film no one cared about. But over the last three decades, word of mouth has turned this sleeping hit into a cultural phenomenon.

WOLFMAN'S GOT NARDS explores the relationship a dedicated audience (including celebrities and filmmakers) has with The Monster Squad. This documentary takes an in-depth look into the film’s conception, response, cult status, and revival. Through interviews with the cast, crew, screenwriters, directors, academics and original reviewers as well as through never-before-seen footage, it turns the lens on an audience of self-proclaimed misfits who have kept The Monster Squad alive for more than thirty years.
