Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies Go to College Reviews
What I don't understand about this series is that it seems like they can do whatever they want. I don't know, all their awkward murders were under their own control. I didn't really care for this movie at all. It's heavily censored on TV, if you want to watch it now, see it on Netflix or Amazon.
This may just be the most enjoyable of the four films. I will say the worst thing about the film is the Ghoulies themselves. Since part 2, they have grown a lot taller, learned how to talk and apparently the surviving ones are now trapped in a comic book. The reader of the book lets them out and controls them.
I think the human aspect of this film is what made it so watchable. A lot of crazy good in the cast. McCarthy is hamming it up in a so bad its good way. Then you have early roles from Jason Scott Lee and Matthew Lillard as Frat Brothers. And a nice Kane Hodder cameo to start the film.
And the women are great. Marcia Wallace has a nice little role; her being a very famous voice on The Simpsons. But it was Eva La Rue, who is adorable, and Hope Marie Carlton, who is a total sexpot, that own this movie.
So this time the Ghoulies are trapped within a comicbook (beats me) and as before can be controlled by whoever releases them. So the comic ends up in a college and after many obvious false starts the demons get released.
Cue lots and lots of your typical cliched, predictable, unfunny college nonsense (in typical American style) with, of course, lots of excuses for tits and ass. The tits and ass is perfectly fine in my books hehe but I think the film makers kinda forget this is suppose to be a horror comedy, not 'Porkies' with puppets.
The plot is puerile and involves two college fraternities trying to 'out prank' each other to win a trophy of sorts. This of course equals lots of trouble with teachers and eventually lots of accusations of trouble which has been caused by the ghoulies. Oh and McCarthy as the main teacher tries to control the little demons for himself, gee I wonder why.
Probably the worst and cheapest of the four films with nothing to keep you awake accept for tits and ass. The ghoulies are still decent looking puppets though and there are a few star names in there as beginners, the most fun (what there is of it) is finding them.
