Most horror fans know him as the man who played Jason Voorhees and who is Victor Crowley, to non-genre film fans, he’s showed up in all kinds of films in bits parts and lead roles.

Andre Gower’s “Wolfman’s Got Nards” is a fantastic, long overdue look at the making of, and legacy of “The Monster Squad,” one of the best horror movies of the eighties and one of my favorite films of all time.
