Film #50: Ghoulies (1985)

Plot - This movie sucks. I figured it was going to be a Gremlins clone with all sorts of ghoulies running around. Instead, it's a movie about a guy's obsession with his dead dad's evil activities.

Form - Gotta love those extreme close-ups of the ghoulies. You can tell that they knew how bad the puppets looked.

F/X - Some really good ghoulie activity. One ghoulie materializes randomly right before your eyes, while others are jumping out of turkeys in spectacular fashion.

Acting - Bad.

Mise en scene - Ghoulies! Other than them, the haunted castle setting isn't really all that great.

Quotables - No.

Cool stuff - There should have been more ghoulies.
