Alt + Poster: ‘Monster Squad’ (1987)

Alt + Poster is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite foreign and alternative movie posters with the Wasteland. 

If you’ve unearthed a foreign or alternative movie poster that you think the rest of the Screenagers need to see, please send it to us at or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

The Monster Squad is one of those fun and silly 80s movies. I actually haven’t seen it in 20 plus years. I should probably re-watch it this month. So this time around we’re checking out some European alternates for the film The first one up is from Germany. They changed the name to Monster Busters for some reason. And minus the name change, the poster looks like it could be form the U.S.

But I gotta say I like the actual artwork as a whole.

Next up we’re headed to Italy!

This one is much more risqué. It feels nothing like the movie itself, but it’s got monsters and boobs. You gotta love that about Italy’s penchant for the sexuality in everything. They just role with it and be damned if you are offended.


You have any favorite alternate movie posters? What do you think about these Monster Squad posters?

See you there!
