GHOULIES

If there was ever a series of B movies that I loved with out a doubt it would be these ones. I have been a fan of Ghoulies since I first saw the original film and have been hooked ever since. Sure it is pure 80's B horror movie greatness which means what you expect it to mean. The thing is I love those types of films and always have, I can't help it. As most people would turn these flicks off I watch them on the regular. This of course being one of my all time favorite series of B horror films starting with this first film.

The film follows a young man who inherits a mansion that was once owned by his satanic father. They invite friends over to break the place in and all the fun begins. But as time goes by Jonathan Graves (Peter Liapis) starts to feel the need to practice black magic after finding a few objects. In doing so he conjures up the little demons known as the Ghoulies and even his dead father. Now with all the power he could ever want and his father looking to take it all back what will happen.

This is a low budget movie produced by Charles Band and the whole production is just awesome. It has all the bad acting one could ever hope for and even has Mariska Hargitay in a very pre "Law & Order: SVU" role. I have to say that I like the bad acting here because it fits. The low budget also gives us the low tech puppet Ghoulies that look excellent in my opinion. Directed by Luca Bercovici who co wrote with Jefery Levy this is one of those it is bad but it is good flicks. In fact it is just plain fun when you turn the brain off.

Te Ghoulies themselves are excellent but I must say that they and the film itself gets better with the second film. I have to say that to be honest but this is still 80's golden horror on that wonderful B level. You have the classic 80's party with the very 80's music leading to all the horror no nos. This is one of those you either love it or hate it things, me personally I love it. I can understand if this isn't your thing, which is cool. But don't hate on some one like me that loves these B horror classics.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT
