31 Days of Halloween - Day 25: Ghoulies

For the last few years I always do a 31 days of Halloween month. The past few years I re-read all the original Goosebumps books and before that I'd watch 31 horror movies. However I realized every single time I watched 31 Horror movies I exclusively picked ones I enjoyed. I decided to do something slightly different. I composed a list of every horror movie I owned and put them in alphabetical order. Then using a random number generator I generated 31 numbers and watched the movies that corresponded with those numbers. Some are great films and others… well… are less than fun let's say. I hope you enjoy!
Day 25: Ghoulies (Movie #207)

Ghoulies is half of a decent movie. Of the three Ghoulies films I've seen and own (there are 4 in total) this has been my least favorite since forever. The film has too much going on in it with it's rituals and midgets and sorcery. The highlights of the film is whenever the cheesy Ghoulies puppets are on screen.

Future films were far superior because it usually involved someone accidentally summoning the Ghouluies and them tearing shit up. In general the film is more famous for it's poster/cover than being a watchable film.

In general this film was a bore. There was nothing new to be learned from rewatching it except that I wanted to watch Ghoulies II immediately after it was over (and thankfully I got the 2-in-1 DVD and did just that).

Sorry for it being such a short one. I was really bored by most of this movie. Fun fact though, according to my parents this was the first film we ever rented "as a family." I was about 2. I'm sure I fell asleep during it.
