ago a comic called Ghoulies that holds
secret powers has been read to end the
curse of three little creatures that
caused trouble there and were banished
However, during present day the comic is
found and one of the teacher named
Professor Ragnar (Kevin McCarthy)
unleashes them by reading the spells and
has an idea to use them to put an end to
prank week hosted by the head student
clown Skip Carter (Evan MacKenzie) who
has troubles making amends with his
girlfriend Erin Riddle (Eva La Rue) as
she finds his pranks childish along with
Skip is expelled from school after being
framed by his friend Wes (Billy
Morissette) and the Ghoulies are sent to
kill Skip and all frats that get in their
We spot many impressive and fun beginnings with college students pulling pranks on one another and doing bizarre events as it gives a good 90's comedy vibe to everything that we see here.
Impressive moment with Wes in a john and discovering a Ghoulish Tales comic and then reading it out loud as there's nice effects with a toilet steaming up and glowing green as well as toilet paper spinning. Plus a good shot on a ghoulish hand coming out.
We spot a good jiggly camera shot on
the front of the campus building of the
top window during a stormy night which
were of course the ghouls coming into the
place to wreck havoc plus we have 3 Stooges type humor with the ghoulies smacking or poking each other. This looked a little too hokey though.
We have many funny moments in a classroom
at the campus with Prof. Ragnar lecturing
his students and the students don't take
We have good shots of the students partying
and doing all sorts of pranks as well as
a good comedic lustful scene between Wes and Veronica getting it on with one
another in the bedroom and a good camera
shot down her too. Interesting and bizarre moments on them in an exercising workout with them lusting one another as well as hilarious moments on the ghoulies by the conrer peeking on these two. I had to laugh.
A good take on Wes looking
down into a toilet and a Ghoulie hand
Then a hilarious moment wwhen these creatures try to flush him down the toilet as this was done in good humoress taste but not as horrifying like you'd think.
More hilarious moments when the ghoulies take an axe and whacks a steroe unit or trashing other stuff there as well as to what they are talking about in which this is the funniest and cutest moments in the story. Certainly doesn't meet up to the previous flicks as there was nothing cute about these monsters terrorising stuff and they aren't deadly while doing these activities. First time also seeing them getting drunk while drinking beer.
Plus there's a moment with one of the ghoulies pulling out a teacher's tongue and it stretches out as this was one of them killing this person as it grabs your attention but it's not meant to be taken seriously at all.
We see a good sneering moment by Jeremy Heilman towards Skip Carter when he gets his buddies
to beat the crap out of him.
This for sure looked intense as well as a good psychological feel on bullies attacking an innocent person. Makes you want to beat these people up big time. A good shot on Jeremy acting sneering
again by swinging a bat towards Skip.
The horror somewhat comes into the story when both Skip and Erin discover a dead corpse of the teacher that has her tongue wrapped around her as well as being pitted against the ghoulies as well as Ragnar and Skip struggling against the moments they try to kill him and save Erin. Plus there's some gooey results on the teacher as well as later on him turning into a monster and trying to terrorise them once again. We spot a nice slow motion shot on Ragnar breaking open a
door with his hands grabbing on the sides
acting monstrous. A good shot on a gothic looking toilet
breathing out fire.
Also a nice shot of a ghoulie hand coming out
of the misty toilet too during the end of the movie.
Bottom line is that this was quite an
insult to the Ghoulies
film series as this was not at all a
horror and a plain comedy. Kinda like a
ripoff to Animal House
but with Ghoulies in it
and they talk too. You may ask me why I reviewed this film
if it's strictly a horror site. Well, I
reviewed this as part of a series of the
films. The film delivers a few laughs and alot
of Three Stooges type of stupidity too. Somewhat like a comedic episode of Tales from the Crypt by how this was all put together but a riopoff version of it.
The acting is
quite cheesy and overly corny but some
people seem to do well in it. Evan MacKenzie (Skip Carter) really delivers as
the head prankster of the campus knowing
his character very well. He has the right boy next door type of appeal and shows some nice energy and enthusiasm into his part of the flick and being the hero in the film. He was a true character actor by all means.
McCarthy (Prof. Ragnar) is a little too corny as a
demented professor of the campus but
seems to bring alot of good timing with
his goofy performance. The moment on his performance on him acting
crazy by summoning up the ghoulies and
try to get them to cause terror for his
students is a little over the top but yet
it looks fine. He has a good gruffness in his speaking and has the right middle aged type of looks too for this part. Plus seemed to draw your attention when he acted demanding.
Eva LaRue (Erin Riddle) was another good one for
the show having the looks and the talent
too and comes across well. A funny performance by her screaming when she is being tormented
by the ghoulies as well as the onscreen professor while she is tied up. Has a good stunning looks to her role as well as being good and sharp in her performance. Has a convincing outgoing attitude too along with showing a good maturity and intelligence to her role as well.
Labyorteaux (Mookey) was the best character
actor out of them all as the dimwitted
officer at the campus who brings alot of
humor to his part. Has a nice stoky look to his role along with showing a good witty macho attitude as well as acting tough as nails in a slapstick way too. Was also good and forceful too. He was a natural character actor.
John Johnston (Jeremy Heilman) lived to play a college snob as he was strong in his performance as well as knowing on how to get in your face with his nasty and bullying attitude into all that he did into his part. Makes you seriously want to hate him as well as hitting him for his wicked deeds. Studied this part inside and out as well as showing good vicious expressions by what he does. Has a great strong personality within whatever he did here.
Billy Morissette (Wes) showed off an effective supporting role as a party animal who liked to clown around since he was a natural ham into all that he did here. Added a ton of spunk as well as showing off a ton of energy especially while getting it on with someone else. Knew his craft pretty well and had no difficulty whatsoever. Had the right looks and appeal too.
Supporting actress Marcia Wallace
(Miss Boggs) was quite annoying in her part as a
teacher at the campus and didn't really
fit in well with the film. She was too goofy by everything that she did here.
There is a topless woman at
a party with a deer hear stuck on her
Playboy model Hope Marie Carlton
is topless lying in bed as well as later
on taking off her bra.
Many woman are topless by having some
more fun with the guys
A few women are showering naked.
A school teacher is melted
We have some hokey comedic
synthesizer music by Michael Lloyd and
Reg Powell which adds to the
slapstick in the film but in a cheesy
way. Plus we hear xylophone music. Plus there's clarinet and alot of fast beat bass string pluckings as this had a marvellous orchestral sound blending in with the zany comedy. Most of this adds to the comedy in the storyline too. Great old fashioned organ music for the final moments on the madness coming to an end which is extremely memorable and catchy.
