August 14: Fred Dekker’s The Monster Squad was released 30 years ago today.
So I know there have been some game changing properties that altered the pop culture landscape. Like Superman kind of killing pulps and Star Wars ushering out the thoughtful Sci-Fi of the early 70's for spectacle. Are there other lesser known but as important things out there? Was there something that suddenly caused everyone to go gaga for pulp heroes, that kind of thing?
