The operators of a traveling spook house pick up some unlikely hitchhikers when The Ghoulies begin terrorizing carnival goers at their most recent stop! GHOULIES 2 shows a tremendous improvement over the first film, with the increased budget being reflected in the recognizable cast, improved special effects, and larger setting. John Carl Buechler's new Ghoulies are larger, meaner, and much more mobile; they are also free standing, and no longer show the cheapness of the rubber hand puppets used in the original. Several stop-motion animation shots have also been added to give the creatures more validity as they run amok and get in to all sorts of mischief. While the gore has increased as well, the lighter tone creates a kid-friendly atmosphere, while providing enough laughs and kills to entertain the older crowds. The carnival backdrop is a fun and colorful setting, which provides the creatures with plenty of hapless new victims and brightly-lit attractions to dismantle. GHOULIES 2 is the definitive film in the series, and an enjoyable entry for creature and B-movie fans.
