I remember as a kid in the 80s, at the local mom and pop video store, seeing the classic poster art for the original "Ghoulies." You know the one - the "ghoulie" rising from the toilet bowl. Oh how that poster art intrigued my young mind.

"Ghoulies" was one of many imitations of the more popular "Gremlins." It seemed back then little creatures wrecking havoc was all the craze in Hollywood. The original "Ghoulies" was even popular enough to spawn three sequels, which brings us to the first of these sequels, "Ghoulies II."

If you're looking for a well-written, well-acted, well-directed film, well... "Ghoulies II" I'm afraid, would not be for you. If you're looking for some cheesy special effects, some cool rubber monsters, some whacky stop-motion cinematography, all within the confines of a haunted carnival attraction then this film is just what you're looking for.

Films like this were on almost every weekend when I was growing up. Oh so many of my Saturday afternoons/evenings were spent watching B-horror films with a bag of chips and a couple of buddies. It was like a right of passage. No longer do the cable channels offer these gems. So sad.

Last weekend my son and I sat down together and watched "Ghoulies II." For that hour and a half I was transported to a time, a much simpler time. When it was over I knew, judging by my son's reaction, that the torch had been passed.

Oodles of silly, buckets of fun. This movie doesn't take itself seriously at all and I love it. It's one of the more enjoyable family friendly (i.e., PG-13) horror movies.

SEQUEL SIDEBAR: Other than the ghoulies themselves, I find no connection between this story and Ghoulies part one. None.

The ghoulies are back! And they've come with a well-deserved special effects makeover, some stop-motion action and some new ugly friends. They sneakily hitch a ride with Larry (Damon Martin; Amityville 1992) and his uncle Ned (Royal Dano; House II, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Spaced Invaders) on their way to work at a traveling carnival.

The ghoulies reveal themselves in the funhouse and start causing trouble. They're much more involved in the action in this movie compared to Ghoulies. This movie also has a little more fun with the ghoulies. They high five in front of a crowd of chanting people while playing with dead things and one of them projectile vomits green superglue at two teenagers making out, leaving their faces stuck together and the guy's hand firmly planted on second base.

Little person Nigel (Phil Fondacaro; Willow, Return of the Jedi, Return to Oz) and gypsy go-go dancer Nicole (Kerry Remsen; A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2, Pumpkinhead) round out the better supporting cast. But the show stealer is often drunk Uncle Ned, who believes that his parlor trick illusions resulted in real magic and summoned the ghoulies to serve him.

The carneys eventually unite to battle the ghoulies in silly confrontations. Additional doses of silly come when the ghoulies get out of the funhouse and run amok throughout the carnival grounds.

Ghoulies 2... what can I saw about ghoulies 2.. well I own this movie! This is the height of good bad movies, this movie stars some people I'm sure you've seen before.. you just don't know they're names.. Like the midget.. I've seen him somewhere.. Thats right! this movie has a midget in it, not only that, but this midget runs the whole horror ride. The movie revolves around a down on they're luck Horror ride entertainers who are going bankrupt, an old man, his grand son, a midget and some other people that arent important, then theres the evil money guy and the love interest.. One night, kids go into the haunted house expecting it to be boring but run into some tiny little demons, they think they are rats. Now.. remember the makers of this movie tried to make it a serious movie.. I had to tell you that before I say this, the demons put on a show for the crowd as the crowd chants "rats! rats!" and then the demons high five each other... that was great!! :) but it's not all fun and games, people start to die and dissapear.. and the old man thinks it's his fault.. lots of story line fallows and some death scenes.. Now.. I found this movie quite entertaining, but if your not a B-Movie fan such as myself, give it a rent first.. this movie is really funny.. but its not supposed to be.. the puppets are pretty cool looking. As I write this review, I see that they've made a 4th one.. god help us all.. Go out and buy/rent it now!!!

This is a pretty good movie. Oh, it's on the B-movie side of films but the ghoulies are fun. In this film you actually get more from the actors than in most movies like this. This movie is very similar to Troll ( 1986 ) and it was made by the same exact people. There was a film called Ghoulies that came out before this , but in that movie the ghoulies were actually always in the backround. The first Ghoulies was more about witchcraft and spells, not too much about the title creatures. I hated it. In this one they had a much better budget, the ghoulies have way more screen time, and they used some cool effects to bring these little likable monsters to life. There are plenty shots of the Ghoulies as Puppets, but these puppets are very well done and they give the Ghoulies there own unique personality. There is also some stop-motion animation shots of these creatures as well. The animation models are very well sculped and well animated. The Puppet Ghoulies were created by John Buechler; the stop-motion animation was handled by master David Allen. Great for people who love " little monster " movies.
