Bonus CD: Scary Sounds of the Night
A harmless backyard camp out becomes an unforgettable night of chills and thrills for three young boys as they share their favorite scary stories.

They each take turns at giving each other "The Willies." The stories come to life, each more horrific than the last. The poodle in the microwave, a tasty fried rat, and a haunted house that really can "scare you to death." But the next two stories really happened...

All the fifth grade bullies loved to pick on Danny Hollister. No one believed Danny when he discovered a monster in the school bathroom--until the bullies began to disappear, one by one.

Mean ol' Gordy Belcher was a creepy fat kid whose only friends were bugs. His problems magnified (literally!), but what can you do when you're attacked by a bug bigger than you are?

When it seemed the camp out couldn't get any more terrifying, our boys discovered just how true scary stories can be. Tonight, they'll definitely get "The Willies."

So, I like Sean Astin. I was a teen in 1990, when this movie came out. I went on to amass a huge horror movie collection. I realize these older horror movies, and movies paced like The Willies, here, don't feel anything like the big budget horror movies today. I love 80s/early 90s horror. I especially like to watch it during October. Movies like The Willies take us back to yesteryear. They're creepy fun, and in a totally different way than what you experience with the big budget stuff today. I like The Willies. It entertains the kid in me during my favorite holiday season of the year - Halloween. If you love 80s horror, you'll probably like this.

From Ghoulies, to Spookies, b-movies come by the bucket-load. However 80s-90s b-movies have a certain charm. Maybe it's the practical effects, or the cheesy thrills, The Willies succeeds.

Plot- Kids on a backyard camping trip tell chilling stories. From what's grosser than gross, to boys and their flies, it's one entertaining trip.

Film Review- The Willies feels like a late 1980s Roger Corman movie for kids (at least it's better than Saturday the 14th Strikes Back). A ton of familiar faces show up, acting their way through terrible dialogue, luckily the film is entertaining, anyway Sean Ashton stars as well as James Karon (Return of the Living Dead), and Kathleen Freeman (Gremlins 2: The New Batch). The Willies feels like a good adaptation of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps series, good meaning better than the actual TV series. While it's still a bad film, it does entertain. It's definitely inspired by Creepshow (1982). The stories are cool, and have a great campy feel. The effects are decent for its low budget, wish I could say the same for the DVD though. The DVD is of a VHS rip, wit a scene selection. While that sounds awful, it's surprisingly not that bad. The audio is clear, and while the picture is grainy with lines every now and then, the film is still visible, and is watchable. I don't see this thing ever getting an HD transfer, but for what it is, it's not bad.

Film Rating: 3/5, DVD/disc Rating: 3/5

This movie is just plain fun. I saw it when I was about 13 years old, and I still remember all the stories. Its not going to scare you to death, its not going to win any awards, and it doesn't dazle you with special effects. What does it do? It will give you a fun ride while watching it, and you'll probably agree its a memorable flick.
So if you want a fun movie that has a "ghost stories in the backyard" type of plot, then I suggest you grab a copy of The Willies.

Love that this movie is still available! Cheesy campfire ghost stories from the 80s. Editing is also humorous, for example, the camera moved in and out to majorly pinpoint the main focus of the scene. Look up some of the scenes on YouTube! Can't go wrong with the price. I bought a copy for my brother and sister as gifts since we hadn't seen it since we were kids. I put this together with the book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as gifts. Hope this gives you some idea of what it's like.

Before you had the classic Nickeloden show, Are You Afraid of The Dark, there was The Willies. The movie starts off with a few gross urban legends the woman who finds a rat in her fried chicken bucket and an exploding poodle. The main titles haven't hit yet and this movie looks promising. The first story was pretty good but the second story sucked. It was slow paced, boring, poor acting, and a story that really goes nowhere. The end to the film was a surprise but after seeing the second story, I was bored.

Overall, a decent film but nothing that i'd call a classic. They have two versions of this movie and one includes a scary sounds cd. They are the same price so you might as well get the bonus cd.

Iove Sean Astin & got this mainly cause he was in it. Even if just in the beginning. I like 80s horror monsters. They are well made, like critters, the ghoulies etc. I Iike how this is more like creepshow & the twighlight zone where there are different small films. Makes it less boring.
