Movie Info

Pint-sized monsters known as ghoulies hop aboard a traveling carnival, where their violent behavior and grotesque looks are most likely to go unnoticed. There, the gremlin-like creatures find a new home in a haunted house attraction. As the creatures earn their keep by scaring visitors, the carnival finds itself running in the black for the first time in years. But things quickly turn sour when, to the shock of carny Uncle Ned (Royal Dano), the ghoulies start taking bites out of the customers.

    Ghoulies II is the fun that the first movie should have been. "Good" might be too strong a word for this one, but it's a definite course correction for the series, 'cause unlike the first Ghoulies, I actually enjoyed my time with this one.

    OK lets just get one thing straight here, these films do not follow any continuity from one to another. The 'Ghoulies' turn up out of nowhere, captured by some guy who is trying to exterminate them for good. From these rather abstract beginnings the naughty creatures turn up in a kooky crappy carnival where they rather predictably cause suspicious deaths and trouble. There is a bare minimum plot about the workers of the carnival not making enough money to keep their jobs and the evil company (company?) manager setting deadlines to hand in good receipts of business. At first I thought the Ghoulies were gonna help the carnival folk make their ghost ride more scary so they could make more money and keep their jobs (sounds solid right?), but no. Nothing really happens throughout as you would have expected, some people get killed which are thought to be attractions but who cares? all you wanna see is Ghoulie gore. There is some gore here but not a massive amount, more than the first but this installment lacks the atmosphere of the first. Very very cheap looking all round but the puppets still look pretty cool, you also get some stop motion animation of the creatures also. Expected better really as I prefer the original but the ending in this is quite amusing and very B-movie/trashy, so much so its good.

    The sequel of <i>Ghoulies</i> is not so great, but just funny. The <i>Ghoulies</i> are back and in a carnival fun house. I was amused by the way other people thought the ghoulies were part of the attraction while witnessing actual killing and death. This time the Ghoulies have stop-motion scenes where we actually see them walk, but mostly they're confined to popping from the corners of screens where we can not see the arms of puppeteers guiding them.

    The sequel to Ghoulies is another video rental classic from my 80s childhood...
