The Ghoulies films were a Gremlins-like horror-comedy film series in the 1980s and 1990s. The original Ghoulies (released in 1985) originated in 1983 under the title Beasties. It was to be directed by Charles Band, with special effects by Stan Winston (the two had previously collaborated on Parasite (1982 movie)). It ended up being directed by Luca Bercovici with special effects by John Carl Buechler and his company Mechanical and Makeup Imageries Inc.. Both the original film and its sequel (released in 1987) were made by Empire Pictures and given theatrical releases. The third film (which Buechler directed) and fourth film (which starred the lead actor of the original film) were released straight-to-video. The Ghoulies are allegedly owned by Lawrence Kasanoff.

GHOULIES/GHOULIES II + TROLL/TROLL 2 - DOUBLE FEATURE DVDs (1249 words)
Creature maven John Buechler clearly lacked the means to do the ghoulies properly, and the resulting puppet-monsters are so limited in their movements that they fail completely to convince--not, you'll agree, the best way to go for a creature feature.
The resulting Ghoulies II, thoughtfully included on the flipside of the "original's" disc, is marginally superior to its predecessor--though making the distinction is rather like deciding a preference between this or that fascist dictator.
Ghoulies is a passable-looking disc, though its 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer lacks some fine detail and is chromatically rather muted; the 2.0 mono mix is serviceable but unspectacular, a clear and unobstructed listen that otherwise fails to distinguish itself.
Ghoulies II Movie Review (919 words)
Ghoulies II Ghoulies 2 was most definitely a primary reason for our obsession with bad and B-Movies.
Ghoulies 2 begins with two circus workers, who work for touring carnival company "Hardin Enterprises", driving to the next carnival to set up "Satan's Den" which is a shoddy haunted house.
The carnival is the perfect place for the ghoulies to be awed, but the ghoulies turn the tables on the people, making everyone into their own freak show.
