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.Read more ›
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.
scream factory have continued their relationship with Charles band by releasing another Empire pictures film on Blu-ray
this time it's Ghoulies & Ghoulies II on 1 blu-ray Disc
both films have been given a new High definition transfer in 1:85:1 widescreen
and i tell you what the picture quality for both films does look amazing, very sharp & clear picture quality
plus the sound quality has been boosted with a new 5.1 Master audio mix plus the original stereo mix has been added to
so for both films you get an option of a new sound boost with 5.1 surround sound or the old stereo mix from the VHS days
personally the 5.1 Master audio mix is much much better sound quality of course.Read more ›
Upon returning to his family's abandoned mansion, Jonathan realizes he has inherited his father's powers of sorcery, which he uses to unwittingly unleash a handful of demons known as The Ghoulies! The tiny terrors run amok, getting into mischief and killing their unfortunate hosts before Jonathan summons the strength to defeat them. GHOULIES is good old fashioned B-Movie monster fun from Charles Band's early production company Empire Pictures (also responsible for TROLL and other campy classics). John Carl Buechler's creature designs are both creepy and original, even if the cheapness of the latex hand puppets shines through. One can't ignore the similarities between the film and its obvious influence GREMLINS, but it does enough to distinguish its own identity through its dark Fantasy roots in arcane magic. Rather than trying to mask its low budget, GHOULIES revels in its cheesy acting, confusing and pointless plot, and dated special FX. Its greatest faults lie in its weak structure and pacing, two distracting elements that make the first film less entertaining than its sequel. There is still plenty to like for the average B-Movie fan, making this a fun if not silly and stupid 80s sleeper!
The operators of a traveling spook house pick up some unlikely hitchhikers when The Ghoulies begin terrorizing carnival goers at their most recent stop! GHOULIES 2 shows a tremendous improvement over the first film, with the increased budget being reflected in the recognizable cast, improved special effects, and larger setting. John Carl Buechler's new Ghoulies are larger, meaner, and much more mobile; they are also free standing, and no longer show the cheapness of the rubber hand puppets used in the original.Read more ›
