Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go to College (1990)

Directed by John Carl Buechler, who did the special effects for the Ghoulies series and also directed Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood and Cellar Dweller, this has the ghoulies being called to a college by Professor Ragnar (Kevin McCarthy, who never ever phones it in; he’s out of control in this) when he uses a Satanic comic book. He’s angry that all his students care about is a prank war and decides to destroy them, even becoming a human-sized ghoulie at the end.

This has Matthew Labyorteaux’s brother Patrick, Kane Hodder, Griffin O’Neal, Eva La Rue (Natalia Boa Vista from CSI: Miami), Hope Marie Carlton (Taryn from the Andy Sidaris movies), Jason Scott Lee and an early role for Matthew Lillard. It feels like when the Toxic Avenger went from absolute insanity to being a cartoon. If you were around for 80s made for video movies, well, you know the ride. Even Freddy got a doll.

I don’t like that the ghoulies can talk. We don’t need that.

Then again, I do like the one with the backward baseball cap and kind of wish that these movies were bigger than they are so I could have an action figure of him.

You can watch this on Tubi.
