Ghoulies Go to College (1991)

“You won’t get away with those foolish pranks this year.” – Prof. Ragnar

Number of Times Seen – 1 (3 Mar 2019)

Brief Synopsis – The Ghoulies try to take over a college campus, causing problems for both the studnets and the teachers.

My Take on it – This is a film that I’ve been avoiding seeing ever since it came out 28 years ago.

The fact that Troy Anderson of Anderson Vision chose it for next month’s Franchise MOTM at the LAMB made me take the plunge especially since this is the 3rd of the 4 films in the series that I have now committed myself to watching within the next week or so.

After watching the idiocy of the first two films, I was in doubt as to whether it would be possible to outdo them and I was proven wrong.

This is a really stupid film and it manages to surpass the previous two film sin its absurdity.

This film tries much too hard to make it a blend between an 80’s college sex comedy and a horror film and neither aspect ends up working at all.

It was extremely torturous getting through this film because it was so terrible in every aspect that one could imagine.

When watching a film like this where iot’s known how much money was thrown away in order to make it, it makes one ponder the idea that someone actually thought that producing this script would actually make sense.


Bottom Line – Another really stupid film in the series that I thought couldn’t get any worse. This time, the Ghoulies try to take over a college campus.  This film tries too hard to make this seem like an 80’s teen sex comedy and the mix of that with the absurdity of the plot doesn’t work in the least.  Nothing works in this film and it really was torturous to get through because it was sooo bad.  While watching a film like this, it makes one wonder how films are approved to be made because there is no way that something could imagine that this would be a good film.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – This movie is the film debut of actor Matthew Lillard. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
