As a child, Jonathan (Peter Liapis) was almost killed by his father, Malcolm (Michael Des Barres), during a satanic ritual. After being saved and raised by Wolfgang (Jack Nance), who has kept him unaware of his background, Jonathan inherits Malcolm's house and moves in with girlfriend Rebecca (Lisa Pelikan). During a party, he jokingly performs a ceremony described in one of his father's books on black magic, not realizing he has unleashed small, demonic creatures known as "Ghoulies."

Movies That I Changed My Mind About (51 movies items)

"I was freaked out by the trailer, which creeped me out and this is probably what shaped my opinion on the film for quite some time. But however, a recent rewatching of it changed my mind. Itโ€™s a cheesy, silly, and juvenile movie. But thatโ€™s what makes it fun!"

October 2017 Horrorfest (45 movies items)

"First viewing - Oct. 8th Worst film for October For most of my life, my only engagement with Ghoulies came from ads in the comic books I read in the โ€˜80s. I remember seeing the creature in the toilet, but beyond that I never heard anyone else mention the films nor did I ever come across them on cable(where youโ€™d think theyโ€™d find a comfortable home). Finding out I could watch the original film via Prime for nothing, I figured Iโ€™d finally give it a chance. Turns out I was just fine ignor"
