The sequel of the 1986 film, a film which I was looking forward to seeing directly after the ending of the first one. As good as the first one was, this movie took a completely different direction into the world of the little evil goblins. Instead of staying in the apartment complex, or even following the Potter family, this movie started anew and followed a different family who’s upcoming vacation is anything but ordinary. Warned by the ghost of his grandfather, the youngest member of the family must do what he can to save them all and avoid all the goblins inside the new town which was completely full of them! The town of Nilbog (which is actually goblin spelled backwards) hosts them as a family from their town switched with them for a month, and starting from the first day there was trouble. Food was supplied to them, almost forced upon them; all with green goo somewhere in each dish. Without anyone in his family on his side, the son of the family has to do what it takes, including peeing all over the food and throwing molotovs in order to wake his family up and keep them from turning into the goblins delectable vegetarian dish! That is actually one of the only good spins on this entire sequel, the fact that each goblin waits until a human has turned into a plant before they chow down on they’re newly turned veggie meal. No one followed through on this second installment that was responsible for the first, so it’s no surprise that these effects were not nearly up to the same caliber as the first one; but a good movie nevertheless. Though the continuation of the Potter family and the single Troll from the first one would have made an excellent second film, this good but not great sequel does it for me, but who knows.. money might get dried up and either a remake or 3rd installment could find it’s way to dvd, if it hasn’t already.
Sheriff Freak: There're sandwiches for tonight in here! It'll go easier on you if you eat'em. It'll make our work easy. Otherwise, we'll be forced to kill you VIOLENTLY!

Drugstore Owner: It would be a shame! The blood would mix with the meat, and we'd have to leave it in vinegar for the whole night!
