Not enough Ghoulies!!
If the cover of your movie has a creature popping out of toilet. I your movie, you better have a creature popping out of a toilet. It’s Chekhov’s gun. There was no ghoulie that ever popped out of a toilet. I was waiting the entire movie for a puppet to pop out of a toilet, and never got it!
Aside from that this movie is still pretty bad. The main actor has some weird green eyes that glow when he “invokes” them (I guess). I don’t really know, because they don’t explain it, and they show up when he is “more” menacing than he normally is. I also didn’t understand why they had to wear sunglasses towards the end. He could turn his weird green eyes off when he wanted. He didn’t need the sun glasses.
I also didn’t get why the main character decided he had to quit school to clean up a house. Why wouldn’t you just clean up the house after school??? It didn’t make any sense.
The movie is filled with pretty subpar acting. For some reason a female costar that seems like she was already in her fifties, but her actual age hadn’t caught up to her yet.
The ghoulies were the best part, but you only see them for maybe, maybe, 10 minutes out of the whole movie.
There were also these two dwarves that showed up for no real reason except to drink some liquid, and fight against their original master (maybe?)
Almost seems like someone had an idea for a bland cultist horror flick script, but was told “Gremlins are big, you gotta put some little dudes in this!”, so they wrote in a couple of midgets, were subsequently told that didn’t count, so wrote in some slimy puppets, but forgot to get rid of the bit they’d written about the midgets, and somehow made their bland idea straight-up bad. This came out the same years as _Gremlins_ though, so I have no idea how it was allowed to happen.
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
Ghoulies starts with Jonathan Graves (Liapis) being left his late Father’s (Michael Des Barres) large house & he decides to move in with his girlfriend Rebecca (Lisa Pelikan). Things take a turn for the worse though when unseen supernatural powers start to possess Jonathan making him want to perform weird Satanic rituals like conjuring up a rain storm in the basement which Rebecca is understandably annoyed about. As Jonathan continues to dabble in the occult he calls up various small green demons that don’t do much except stand around & two dwarfs (Peter Risch & Tamara De Treaux), making sense so far? Good. These dwarfs basically hold the key to all knowledge & power or something like that & eventually Jonathan’s dead Father rises from his grave, which happens to be located in the garden…
Co-written & directed by Luca Bercovici I pretty much hated this cheap, unappealing & throughly rotten attempt at a Gremlins (184) rip-off. The script by Bercovici & Jefery Levy is real bottom-of-the-barrel stuff from start to finish, it’s incredibly slow & boring, despite being called Ghoulies the said little creatures hardly do anything until the very end, they just sort of stand there because the terrible special effects won’t allow them to do anything else. The entire film never leaves the confines of the same house which consists of a couple of bedrooms, a kitchen & dining room, it becomes very monotonous & dull. The character’s are awful, why would anyone want to conduct a Satanic ritual for ‘fun’ & where are you going to find people stupid enough to join in? There’s hardly any exploitation, there’s no gore or any decent horror elements. Apparently Ghoulies is meant to be a horror comedy, well besides there being zero horror it’s about as funny as haemorrhoid’s. I can’t think of one positive thing to say about it, I can’t believe there’s any people out there who actually like this.
Director Bercovici ruins anything the film could have had going for it with some truly awful special effects & puppet shots. Ther’s no scares, there’s no atmosphere & zero tension as a few lame brain retards are killed off at the end but to add insult to injury Bercovici has them all return from the dead in a hideous ‘happy’ ending that made me cringe. Also where did the slimy monster that came from the clown outfit go? Anyone whose seen it will know what I’m talking about. Forget about any gore as this is family friendly PG stuff all the way, it says on he IMDb that 12 minutes were cut to secure this rating & while I can’t quite believe it’s that much it’s painfully obvious that it’s cut & that this was probably intended to be stronger.
With a supposed budget of about $1,000,000 Ghoulies apparently did very well on VHS, I honestly can’t think why as it’s crap but there you go there’s no accounting for taste. The acting is terrible which means it suits the film in general right down to the ground.
Ghoulies is crap, watch Gremlins again instead. This film has absolutely nothing going for it, definitely one to avoid folks. Followed by three further sequels, Ghoulies II (1987), Ghoulies III: Ghoulies go to College (1991) & Ghoulies IV (1994). Thankfully the series now appears to be dead, there is a god after all.
