Ghoulies IV (1994)

After the first three entries in this series, I wasn’t exactly expecting Masterpiece Theater but I still wasn’t quite prepared for this septic spill of a movie. Original star Peter Liapis returns but seems to be playing a different character: Here, it’s like the character has been transplanted from a 1980s horror movie about killer creatures to a 1990s afternoon sitcom about a wisecracking beach cop. The monsters aren’t the same either, but it wouldn’t be as glaring if it weren’t for the atrocious replacements, which look even cheaper than the goblins in “Troll 2.” This is really, really bad, and is practically begging for a Rifftrax or Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment.
