The music in the interludes is really good--especially the 'Stripper' song and visual--great fun and well made.

Gotta love that late-70's to early 80's style!)

Back in the mid 60's to early 70's, Amicus Productions (The Studio That Dripped Blood) rivaled the famous Hammer Studios and its' horror films, and the releases from the two English studios were often confused as they often used many of the same actors and directors. Amicus Productions was most famous for its' creepy horror anthologies, including The House that Dripped Blood (1970), Tales from the Crypt (1972), Asylum (1972), The Vault of Horror (1974), and From Beyond the Grave (1975). Amicus, formed by a partnership between producers Milton Subotsky and Max J. Rosenberg, dissolved in the mid 70's, as did Amicus Productions. While many fans mourned the passing of this wonderful and short-lived institution, Subotosky did go on to form Sword and Sorcery Productions, which released The Monster Club (1980), bringing back some of the magic of a time since past.
Directed by Roy Ward Baker, who also did Asylum and The Vault of Horror, along with numerous Hammer films, The Monster Club, based on a book by famed and prolific author R. Chetwynd-Hayes boasts a plethora of stars including Vincent Price, John Carradine, Donald Pleasance, Britt Ekland, Stuart Whitman, and Patrick Magee, among others. There are three stories here, loosely tied together with a wrap-around story and a number of musical performances (B.A. Robertson is great performing 'Sucker for Your Love'), all wonderful in their own right.
The film starts off with the wrap-around story, as we meet a character named after the author of the book the film is based on, R. Chetwynd-Hayes (Carradine) being approached by a man looking for a bite, as he hasn't eaten in a couple of weeks.

Format: Blu-ray
This 1981 comedy-horror-musical film stars Vincent Price, John Carradine, Donald Pleasence. A writer of horror stories is invited to a monster club by a mysterious old gentleman. Three gruesome stories are told and between each story musicians play songs. This was Vincent Price's only vampire role. The picture and audio quality are great in this release. There is over 2 hours of total bonus content.

Story 1: Shadmock (vampire/werewolf) with Barbara Kellerman and Simon Ward.
Story 2: Vampire Hunters with Donald Pleasance.
Story 3: Humghoul (human/ghoul) with Stuart Whitman. Easily the best segment.

Special Features:
62-minute interview of Vincent Price conducted in 1987 by film historian David Del Valle
41-minute audio interview between Del Valle and Price
On camera interview with David Del Valle
Featurettes
Theatrical Trailer

Format: VHS Tape
Curious horror anthology is loosely based on the works of horror novelist R. Chetwynd-Hayes, portrayed by John Carradine as an active partaker in his own tales. The author is invited by a smooth vampire (the fabulous Vincent Price) to go with him to The Monster Club, where he bears witness to the secret social customs of various monsters, which evidently include drinking, dancing, and watching undead stripping Go Go Ghouls. He is also educated to the mating patterns of these creatures, whose tendency to inter-breed creates such new strains of monsters. All of this is interjected by short stories featuring campy yet fun monsters running amok. A fun side note is that the movie features music by pop-reggae band UB40. Have no sense of humor? Avoid this film. Love campy fun? Don't miss out.

Format: DVD
Being a huge fan of Elvira, I originally bought the VHS of THE MONSTER CLUB in the 80s when she hosted the film on her "ThrillerVideo" collection. I remeber seeing for the first time and loving all three stories in the trilogy, the great performances by Price and Carradine, the atmosphere and monster "Make-up" (i.e. cheap rubber masks) and even the over-the-top musical numbers (especially "The Stripper," complete with a woman stripping down to her skeleton in animation). Since then I've watched the film every halloween.

I was thrilled to see the film was finally on DVD. The film is in widescreen with a pretty decent transfer--but what MOST inpressed me was the Special Features. The gallery (featuring posters, adslicks, lobby cards, etc.) PLUS the FULL SOUNDTRACK of TMC (score AND songs), plus an Easter Egg featuring an interview with the "Slingshot Ghoul" in the Humgoo story.

The DVD is a treat and highly recommended.

I cannot recommend this disc enough. The picture and sound quality are fantastic for a film of its age and the extras are spot on as well, including the films soundtrack as a stand alone audio is a nice touch.
The only slight glich is the commentary from Beavis and Butthead (the actual people who released the dvd) who try there best to slag the film off in the most horror film nerd cliches of all time.
A brilliant budget disc that i have been waiting on for years.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah its cornball nonsense i know but.....
MONSTERS RULE OK!

hi, this review is not for the movie, the movie is 5* for vincent price alone, this review is for the Pathfinder DVD release

it is both letterboxed and interlaced which results in very low resolution/ quality, its also a single layer DVD which doesnt help either. save your money for a better transfer or an eventual high-def release

UPDATE: i compared this release with a fullscreen version i have. turns out the widescreen version is actually a cropped version of the fullscreen release!
