AN UNDERATTED CLASSIC,
This review is from: Ghoulies/Ghoulies 2 [DVD] (DVD)
One could call "Ghoulies" a cheap and nasty monster movie from the mid 80's, but if you look further you will see an epic of unimaginable proportions containing not only the most horrific creatures ever seen on film but also a roller coaster of a plot hell bent on beating the s**t out of you until you can no longer resist the opportunity to scream with fear at it's immeasurable, total unshakable knack of scaring you witless whilst simultaneously making you laugh like a banshee.
I wouldn't want to spoil the meticulously planned plot for you, but suffice to say you would never see coming the copious amounts of midgets, monsters, zombies, black magic, and sunglasses with wipers. This is truly the 80's at its best!
If you've never got round to seeing "that movie with the monster popping out of the toilet I used to see whenever I slunk down to my local video shop circa 1985" buy this very reasonably priced DVD which also includes the worthy sequel and sit back, eat some monster munch, and drink in every dated but somehow warmly loved classic from the that grainy era when you had to rewind before you returned.
