Ghoulies 3 (1991)

Glazier College will never be the same after The Ghoulies take over the campus! The creatures are unwittingly summoned by one of the professors during fraternity Prank Week, where they get in to more mischief as they terrorize the students. John Carl Buechler assumes the director's chair for the first time in the series after having designed the puppets since the original. GHOULIES 3 combines the college sex romp comedy with the zany cartoon antics of the Looney Tunes characters, going so far as to give the awful little creatures speech (not to mention their cheesy one-liners). Buechler has further improved upon their design as well for increased mobility and facial articulation. While the film strives to become the next ANIMAL HOUSE or REVENGE OF THE NERDS, the repetitive plot, forgettable characters, and endless amounts of toilet humor cause it to fall desperately short. GHOULIES 3 is just stupid and silly enough to be enjoyable, falling somewhere between the first and second film in terms of overall entertainment value.

Rating: 5/10.

  6. Wow, I'm not sorry that I missed this movie. Although it does make the differences in 'Ghoulies IV' all the more crazy...especially when you consider that they share a lot of the same crew.

  8. My favourite of the series. Hope Marie Carlton has a lot to do with it, but I like that the film has no pretensions of being anything but what it is: a goofy mix of b-horror and b-teen sex comedy.
