GHOULIES/GHOULIES II – Blu-ray Review

Ghoulies is back! Thanks to Shout! Factory, yet again, has hit it out of the park with their latest release. They’ve brought back two of horrors most iconic movies, whether that be a good thing or not, Ghoulies and Ghoulies II. Ghoulies will always be that one movie that sticks out because it’s just plain weird. Based only off the cover, you’d think it’d be iconic in the sense of Troll 2, but it’s a lot more than that. Demons, orgy’s, goblins, Ghoulies has it all.

Bringing Ghoulies to Blu-ray was such a brilliant idea. Being the Blu-ray/horror movie collector I am today, makes me happy that such old classics are being brought back. No more VHS’ for us! Also, this Ghoulies double feature has loads of bonus content. Check it out below.

Synopsis:

A Gruesome Twosome of Ghoulies!

GHOULIES
Take a creepy old Hollywood mansion, a naive young man and a pretty girl. Add an over-the-top orgy and some slimy, winged goblins who crawl out of toilets, and you have Ghoulies, a horrifying and hilarious ride into the darkest regions of hell! Conjured during a party thrown by the mansion’s new owner, the hairy, fanged demons waste no time wreaking havoc on the scene – and declaring the unsuspecting owner their new lord and master! Peter Liapis (Ghost Warrior), Lisa Pelkin (Jennifer), Michael Des Barres (Waxwork II, Under Siege) and Jack Nance (Eraserhead, Twin Peaks) star in this fanged frenzy of sharp twists and eye-popping shocks that’ll get you where it counts!

GHOULIES II
The demonic, toilet-dwelling goblins are back! Stowed away in “Satan’s Den,” the traveling House of Horror operated by carnival workers Larry and Uncle Ned, the Ghoulies merrily devour the sideshow attraction’s patrons… until Larry realizes his horror house is for real and tries to flee the scene! Deliciously outrageous special effects and over-the-top antics ratchet up the horrific fun! Kerry Remsen (Pumpkinhead), Phil Fondacaro (Troll), William Butler (1990’s Night Of The Living Dead) and Royal Dano (Big Bad Mama) star in this creepy, crawly sequel that’s got every bit as big a bite as the original!
