4.0 out of 5 stars They'll get you in the end, and into your DVD player. September 16, 2003
Format:DVD
An MGM double feature, featuring the first two of four movies in the Ghoulies franchise. Ghoulies involves Johnathan Graves (Peter Liapis), a college student who inherits a family estate. When he finds black magic paraphenalia, he winds up conjruing up the title characters, as well as his long dead dad. Can he stop them? Ghoulies II involoves the operators of Satan's Den, a haunted house for a fair. When the ghoulies hitch a ride by hiding in Satan's Den, they bring big bucks to the fair, until Uncle Ned (Royal Dano) finds out they have killed a couple of the workers. Can he, his nephew Larry, and short actor Sir Nigel Pennywight (Phil Fondacaro) stop them? This also has a scene that delivers on the original's advertising campaign. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the bathroom....
Both movies are low budget films by Charles Band, pre-dating Full Moon Pictures. The cats in both films do great jobs for what they are given. The direction is what you would expect for low budget films. Both films are shown in widescreen anamorphic formats, and look like they have been taken fresh from the lab. the sound on both is great sounding Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono. They are standard releases from MGM, with only trailers, but the low price warrants purchase for fans of the horror genre or MST3K.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent MGM Double Feature DVD! August 27, 2003
Format:DVD
MGM has done an admirable job for this new Double Feature DVD. It contains both Ghoulies and Ghoulies 2, both presented in Animorphic Widescreen with their original theatrical trailers. The picture and sound are as good as we're ever going to see these two films on DVD. A great value, even if you only wish to buy it for one of the movies.
GHOULIES was an early release from Charles Band and Empire Pictures, predating the later Full Moon Pictures. The budget was fairly low for the mid-1980's, but it is still an enjoyable late-night film.
GHOULIES 2 was the sequel and probably had a little larger budget. It featured more talented actors (Royal Dano, Phil Fondacaro, Starr Andreeff, Sasha Jenson) and the Ghoulies are a little more animate than in the original movie. On a whole it is better than the original in many ways.
There were two more later sequels (Parts 3 & 4) to the Ghoulies franchise...maybe they will also come to DVD someday soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghouliehighharmony March 24, 2007
Format:DVD
Before he created his crap factory, Full Moon Pictures, Charles Band still prefered his horrors in small sizes. Ghoulies and Ghoulies 2 are enjoyable schlock, but nothing too fantastic. Maybe it's the fact that they're tongues aren't far enough into their cheeks to be very funny, or that the subject matter just isn't scary. There are moments of intentional humor, but these films actually seem to be taking themselves a bit too seriously. The first film is about a poor man's Eric Roberts moving into his satan worshipping father's house. While there, he gets uncontrollable urges to indulge in satanic rituals and conjure up the Ghoulies. If the Ghoulies are the most terrifying thing Hell has to offer, we don't need to worry too much. Ya gotta wonder why he even bothers conjuring them coz all they really seem to do is lurk about and eat his food rather than provide him with the satanic wisdom he craves. He also conjures a pair of midgets who look as though they belong in a King Arthur film. All of this builds up to a final confrontation with the resurrected father of the "hero". The Ghoulies are second string characters. Jack Nance somehow found his way into this. Also be on the lookout for Detective Benson(Mariska Hargitay) form Law and Order SVU! This film is pretty fun. It's schlocky, unintentionally funny at times, and rather morbid for it's PG-13 rating. Of course this was back when PG-13 actually had some balls. The second film has the Ghoulies infiltrating a house of horrors at a travelling carnival. I'm in the minority when I say this actually was fun to watch as well. Once again the film makers aren't quite sure if they want to make a spoof or a serious scare flick, but it works on a pure entertainment level. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars "THEY'LL GET YOU IN THE END." July 10, 2004
By Blade
Format:DVD
These are two of the greatest B movie classics of the 80s I've ever seen. It's low-budget cinema at its finest and never ceases to entertain an audience. The Ghoulies are one of the most popular monster movies ever made and though the special effects are cheesy and the acting is sometimes bad, it's all in all a scary (and FUNNY!) movie series. (Though 3 & 4 sucked!) With this DVD, you get two great movies for one low price in a special double feature bundle all in one single disk! They are both the original "Ghoulies" & the sequel "Ghoulies II".
"GHOULIES" (1985)
Rating: ****
The one that started it all! A story about young Jonathan and his girlfriend, Rebecca who inherit a mansion which used to be used for an evil cult. After Jonathan finds a mysterious book about summoning demons, all hell breaks loose! (literally!) But soon the evil also corrupts Johnny and the little demons called Ghoulies obey his every command as their master. The original master of the Ghoulies rises from his grave (close to Jonathan and Rebecca's home coincidently) and from there the troublemaking, toilet gurgling monsters begin to kill all of Jonathan's guests! Regretting his actions after losing his one true love and friends, Jonathan does battle with the evil warlock.
OVERALL: Good! This one has some of the most cheesiest special effects in the WHOLE series considering all the Ghoulies are mostly puppets. There's also plenty of bad acting and ridiculous jokes involved so don't expect an academy award from this turkey except to have a good time watching it for it's grand entertainment. RATED: PG-13 for mild violence, drug use, brief sexuality, and some language.
"GHOULIES II" (1987)
Rating: *****
A LOT better than the original! The second installment picks up where the first left off.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dumb Fun Double Feature
If you are looking for real scares, I don't recommend you pick up this double feature. If you want some grade-z schlock that is fun, and funny, then this is a must own. Read more

This is, in fact, complete crap. I hated it. There was nothing about it that could justify the money that was spent to make it. I hope many, many people lost their jobs over this.
