One Of My Favorite Horror Films Out There! (by tequila101)
I never liked Ghoulies 1 & 4 and the third Ghoulies film was pretty good. The 2nd Ghoulies film however to me is like the 1st installment of Ghoulies. What The 2nd one does is it doesn't mess around and it's not cheesy like people say it is. Ghoulies II is more than a fun Horror film which goes down into the deep dark roots of the horror genre really being serious.It is one of my favorite horror films as I had watched this dark, sinister, a little bit suspenseful and scary film as a kid many times. It has many memorable scenes, excellent effects, decent acting and awesome kills <more>
which makes this film work. I'm going to go through as to why I liked this film so much.Acting 9/10: The acting is not that bad at all. It's quite decent to be honest and the actors who played as Nigel and Larry really do a really good job at their roles. The guy who played Nigel doesn't only bring feel to his character but he has that Shakesperen style that makes his character laughable and memorable to watch in action as he quotes and lectures from Shakespere. The guy who played as Larry does a very simple job and that's what I like about his acting, he didn't have to dramatize everything, he just went into it and did it. The other actors center around them quite well.Special Effects 9/10: Special effects with the Ghoulies are done very well in each scene when we see them moving around the screen, walking, running or killing.Puppertry 9.5/10: The puppetry of the ghoulish creatures is done quite well and like Chucky in "Child's Play" or Fats in "Magic", the special effects people from the 80's can truly make these mysterious, scary, ugly and nasty beings come to life. To bad they can't make creatures come to life like they used to.Scenes 9/10: Most of the scenes are planned well throughout. It's good how we have the Ghoulies causing chaos in the Den attraction and then we see them rampaging across the carnival to feast on food, ride bumper cars, shoot some 'ducks' game and pretty much kill more innocent people! I loved most of the scenes with the Ghoulies as every scene protracts on them, making all five of them stand out really well. When the Ghoulies weren't in scenes and we see Larry, Nigel etc, most of those scene were pure goodness too.Music/Soundtrack 9/10: The music is really enjoyable to listen to as it differs from creepiness and alternative type music. There is also a bit of depression and tension within the music which sets the mood for the film's scenes.I know a lot of people won't agree with my review here but then again, this is my opinion and I definitely respect yours if you don't like this film. I've seen it 7 times and I still really love it a lot.9.7/10
They'll Get You In The End Once Again! (by TheDraytonSawyer)
Ghoulies II is a great sequel to the original Ghoulies. You've got sweet special effects, cool looking ghoulies and a great story line. The Ghoulies escape and go to a carnival and cause chaos. It's got some pretty gory parts too. It's not really scary, but hilarious. It's like a dark horror comedy. Then you've got the hilarious part with a ghoulie that gets a guy when he's on the toilet. This is probably my favorite movie in the Ghoulies series. I highly recommend you check this one out. It's one of those great B movies from the 80's and so much fun to watch. <more>
You can get it on DVD with Ghoulies part one for only $10 at most places. Definitely worth the price for such a cool movie. This movie has one ending I never expected too. All around great horror film! As you can see by my username I really like the Ghoulies series.I give Ghoulies II a 10/10
Good old fashioned cheesy 80's Fun (by mechakingghidorah69)
This is by no means a good film. It will never be mistaken for the modern age Citizen Kane. What you will get watching this film, however, is some good old fashioned cheesy 80's fun. If you love the 80's... if you find yourself watching I Love the 80's on VH1, if you listen to music like Ratt and Dokken, if your idea of a good time is watching movies like Open House and Zombie Nightmare, you will love Ghoulies II!!! It has it all: little monsters going on a killing spree at a carnival, hot girls, 80's heavy metal music, and little kids with throwing stars! The acting is <more>
horrible, but if you like these kinds of movies, you won't be complaining. There is a midget named Sir Nigel that works for the funhouse where the Ghoulies have taken up residence. He gives a hilarious performance as a pint-sized Shakespearean actor who has had to resort to dressing up as a gorilla for cash. Royal Dano plays Uncle Ned, the owner of the funhouse who has a serious drinking problem. It's absolutely a gas when the Ghoulies bust loose and start killing people with assorted carnival gear props to the bumper car scene . Definitely worth a look if you are into the obscure 80's horror films.
Working at their friends' carnival, two friends Spookhouse Show act is found to be successful when diminutive, rat-like creatures invade the carnival forcing them to use the only weapon at their disposal to combat the creatures.There's a lot to like about this as it turned out to be a superior sequel. What really works well in this one is the increase of screen- time here for the creatures, which is a fixed problem from the first one. Starting with the chase through the forest and arriving at the auto-yard stalking in here, there's plenty to like here as other action scenes here <more>
make this one so much fun. There's an incredibly fun introductory scene of the creatures here at the carnival where they appear in the attraction to the bewilderment of the guests on the ride causing all sorts of havoc with the true ride which is quite cheesy fun throughout here which follows up the scenes around the carnival. Seeing the creatures going around the different booths, attractions and meeting up with the patrons here while staying incognito is a lot of fun seeing how this one manages to interject the goofy fun of the creatures against the atmosphere of the carnival which is a healthy contrast. This is carried over into the film's highlight scenes where the massive version of the creature runs wild at the carnival and begins attacking both the concession stands as well as other patrons and forcing the group to fight off the beast using a variety of impressive and enjoyable tactics, generating a lot of action and a nice bit of cheese here with how the finale plays out. Along with the overall impressive look of the creatures, the fact that there's a rather healthy body count here that does lead into the film's few small problems here. This is the fact that there's not a great deal of blood or gore here in the kills, as despite the large body count there's a severely lacking amount here beyond a few scratches which would've helped this one quite a bit. As well, there's also the thread here about how good the business at the carnival is suddenly doing is confusingly dropped here, as the financial problems were so strongly hinted at in the first half that to drop it out of the film when that very problem is finally fixed makes no sense, nor does not following through on what is causing that specific incident despite how word-of-mouth is telling the authorities in charge. While the cheese might be something that turns off a few aren't into it, what really lowers this one is the rather bland and lifeless scenes here of this one really doing nothing while having fun at the carnival, as these are just boring, drawn-out and really not all that interesting showing the group not really doing anything in this section. All it does is make the film last longer than the original, and it's not that interesting due to that. Otherwise, this one was quite enjoyable.Rated R: Violence and Language.
Ghoulies is not a good movie. But one good thing about it is that it is a precursor to this film. This is a very scary movie. It is one of the scariest movie of all time. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. It also has great special effects. It is scarier then The Shinning. And that is not easy to do. This is a very scary movie. Do not see the first Ghoulies movie. Just see this movie. It is one of the best horror movie of all time. All it has to do with the first Ghoulies movie is that the monsters in this movie look similar to the monster in this movie. This is a great <more>
film. I do not no why this got 4.2. That is just underrating it. This is no 4.2. I give it 9 out 10. This is a great movie I do not know why people do not know that.
"I'll kick your ass fuzzball!" (by Foreverisacastironmess123)
I used to watch this tons as a kid, and for me it's this and Puppet Master 2 that tie as my favourite 'killer little creatures' flicks. It's still hugely enjoyable and charming to me and I love it a whole lot to this day. It doesn't take itself too seriously, the deaths range from ridiculous to downright chilling, it's scary and funny when it's trying to be, and even poignant once or twice. I love the music score which somehow brings a little added depth all on its own, surprising that it wasn't done by Richard Band. I enjoy all the classic grotesquerie of a <more>
good old-fashioned spookhouse that's rendered deadly for real in some way, that's always a very welcome theme to me. And when the little terrors finally do escape into the carnival at large and briefly cause some real havoc it's just the grisly icing on the cake! When the tilt-a-whirl goes flying off its axis into fiery destruction, that's such a childhood amusement park nightmare come to life! Some of the characters are interesting enough, I like the little drama of alcoholic old Uncle Ned, very well played by the late Royal Dano as a burned-out old fool who mistakingly believes to his cost that it was he who summoned up the Ghoulies. And I absolutely love Phil Fondacaro, it may be an old line, but he had such a big presence for such a small person, and he more than held his own despite putting up with indignities like being picked up and made to wear a stupid gorilla costume. And while I'm sure a lot of films like this back in the day arguably took their basic elements of the idea from Gremlins, so what? I think as far as this sequel goes at least, the Ghoulies are way more frightening than the Gremlins, their particular brand of hijinx are downright vicious! All I'm saying is, if you're gonna take your inspiration from somewhere, at least take it from somewhere worthwhile, and I think there's more than enough different stuff in this movie for it to respectfully distance itself and be much more than just a worthless copy. This does get such an undue amount of criticism dumped on it, it is far from ideal but it's no flaming garbage can like Troll 2 either - good bad picture though that is! And I personally don't think the creature models are bad either. The faces of at least two of them are amazingly expressive. I have a theory that at least some of the people that hate this movie have only ever seen the inferior MGM DVD cut, which until very recently, had been the only version widely available, so I decided to include this list of everything that's included on the UK VHS.. 1: The scene of Patty's death is a bit of a complicated one as both the VHS and DVD have seconds that the other doesn't, but they always leave out when she has a bite taken out of her face and when the cat Ghoulie slashes her. 2: Now this is an odd one. Apparently at the time in Britain, all film scenes involving ninja paraphernalia no matter how mild, had to be removed completely by the thrice-cursed BBFC!! Thus, although it's present on the DVD, Ghoulies 2's rather strange shuriken scene is sadly absent from the VHS cut. 3: During Merle's death it shows slightly more of the buildup to his pendulum slicing, but it still omits the juiciest part. I love the character of Merle because it was like the adorable William Butler purposefully played the guy to be a lot more campy and goofy than everyone else in the movie! Everything about him just screams out monsters, get me and kill me slowly and horribly! 4: When Ned gets electrocuted it shows him fall to the ground and there's a closeup of the pentagram that he scrawled out in his own blood. 5: In the largest scene to be cut out, Kerry Remsen's character gives this really long- winded and embarrassingly melodramatic speech about how her brother died in a high-wire act. I guess it explains how she so deftly climbs the big wheel at the end, but it adds nothing and is a terrible scene all around. 6: In the DVD when the poor clown falls into the dunk tank and has his arm bitten off it cuts to this really s****y model of the aquatic Ghoulie that looks completely out of place, but in the true version it shows the little devil with its mouth full of blood and the mangled arm close by - damn scary scene! 7: And finally when P.Hardin takes his faithful trip to the can, before it cuts to his echoing scream, we get to hear a few more choice ripping sounds as the last remaining Ghoulie chomps down on god knows what! Those cuts are mostly mere seconds long, but the absence of the much needed bloodshed really does take the edge off and makes the movie a lot more weaker than it was originally meant to be. Regardless, to me this was always a very "Magic moon" indeed. Cheers. To Merle! x
Ghoulies 2 1987 is a fun little monster movie, it's much better than the 1st movie, and also far better than parts 3 and 4.It's got a good plot, and a very good setting, i really like the funfair setting, the ghoulies looked really good in this movie, they had more personality, there was also some really funny scenes where the ghoulies were killing off people in a variety of hysterical ways all around the funfair!!! I also think the cast were really good, Phil Fondacaro and Royal Dano were especially good.If you're a fan of Gremlins, then you should definitely check this out, <more>
it's a fun, fast paced movie with lots of entertaining moments, and it also has a classic 80's feel to it, which is another bonus.The rating of 2.4 is so in-accurate so don't pay attention to that, this film deserves 8/10.
When I read all the convoluted reviews for low budget horror movies that analyze everything from the producer's logo to wind noise in the microphone, I wonder if some of those posting believe they will be discovered by The Washington Post entertainment editor. For one, you cannot compare bottom budget movies with no name stars to major studio releases with e.g. Mel Gibson's famous Jesus grunts. Of course the demon puppets are "rubbery," this isn't Disney Studios. That said, let's analyze who watches Mr. Brand's Ghoulies series....people who want to grab bags of <more>
popcorn, sit with dates or friends and have fun. Not do a heady analysis of why the camera shot the stars in the sky a certain way. The movie fulfills it's audiences reason for watching. Silly fun, like Porky's. Lighten up. The Hollywood Insider is probably not hiring.
This is an example to all those who want to make a good low budget horror movie.It is easy to see that the effects arnt great well there pretty bad actually.But it is pulled of and pulled of well by its other quality's.the ghoulies them self's wouldn't you like to have one maybe as a pet set it loose on your mother in law.plus the humour much funnier than the first film which i thought was a little boring .Then the inventive ways people die the ghoulies using the carnival as weapon so to speak.There is many bits that are unbelievable which usually i would have to pick holes in but <more>
to be honest with this film i didn't care. like the bit where the ghoulies are trying to murder two young boys and the crowd is egging them on "RATS" "RATS" "RATS" absolutely fantastic.Not to mention the bumper car death great! and the toilet scene. I remember when i watched this film when i was young maybe 7 year old i was scared to go to the toilet for weeks. much the same when i seen nightmare on elm street i didn't want to sleep.Now nearly 17 years later i still give it the thumbs up the acting could be worse to i have seen it. watch and have a laugh!
