Cool Horror Videos: The Monster Squad trailer, Suicide Squad style

A trailer was recently released for the DC Comics movie SUICIDE SQUAD that featured some wonderful use of the Queen song "Bohemian Rhapsody". How good or bad that film will be remains to be seen, but YouTube user thatmattcaronguy was inspired by its trailer to cut together a "Bohemian Rhapsody"-fueled preview for a film we already know is extremely cool, the 1987 Fred Dekker/Shane Black collaboration THE MONSTER SQUAD.

A fun, loving homage to Universal's monsters, THE MONSTER SQUAD has the following synopsis: 

When Count Dracula "flies in" from Transylvania to retrieve an ancient amulet, he calls upon some "old friends" to help in his search. With the weird Wolfman, grotesque Gill-Man, mildewed Mummy and freaky Frankenstein by his side, the creepy Count has until midnight to find the amulet and gain final control over the delicate balance between good and evil in the world. When police are baffled and parents perplexed, it takes The Monster Squad, headquartered in the local treehouse, to correctly diagnose the full-moon madness as actual monster mayhem. As midnight draws near, and the ghoulish group gets closer, The Monster Squad pools its questionable resources, getting ready for a monster-ous good time! THE MONSTER SQUAD... they make ghost-busting look like child's play!

If you have two and a half minutes to spare having a blast watching a really fun pairing of monster imagery and classic rock, check out the video below:
