“Ghoulies” is the type of cheap, horror movie that could only have been made in the 1980s. The story is minimal, the sets are limited, the special effects are hokey and the story is barely coherent, and yet it’s pretty fun to watch. This is a bad movie in every way, from the direction to the acting to the writing, but there’s something about it that keeps the viewer going. It’s often so silly that it’s jaw dropping, and for that reason it’s worth watching for the type of audience that enjoys so-bad-they’re-good movies.
