41SDMRH0M5L._SY445_

Viewing Date: 10/19/17

Starring: Corey Haim, Gary Busey, Terry O’Quinn, Megan Follows

Plot: A werewolf terrorizes a small city where lives the paralytic Marty Coslaw, his uncle, and his sister, the story’s narrator (via IMDB).

Rules

  • Product Placement
  • Gary Busey drinking or doing other Gary Busey-esque things (acting crazy, etc)
  • Corey Haim in the Silver Bullet

Quotes

  • “Suicides go to hell.  Especially when they’re pregnant.”
  • “There are no words to comfort- there is only PRIVATE JUSTICE!”
  • “I built that because I love you and it would kill me if you got hurt…  Now let’s get some barbecue.”
  • “Who was that?”  “Obscene phone call.”
  • “Some times I think that you’re common sense got crippled along with your legs.”
  • “I’m a little old to play the Hardy boys meet Reverend Werewolf!”

Viewer Quotes

  • “That’s a big mustache.”  “He’s definitely given some rides on that.”
  • “If only he had a cell phone.”  “If only he had legs.”  “Well, he has legs….”

What We Learned

  • If you’re committing suicide, and then are immediately murdered, it’s sort of a win.
  • Before they got into rap, they did wrestling (NWA wresting scene on TV)
  • Locke from Lost once had hair
  • Narration is usually completely unnecessary
  • Serial murders in a small town really don’t warrant any additional attention from police, feds, etc.
  • Paraplegics are really good at climbing trees and driving motorcycle-like wheelchairs (with no training)

Ghoulies 2 (1988)

Ghoulies 2

Date Watched: 10/5/2017

Starring: Some guys that died

Plot: The Ghoulies wreak havoc at an amusement park, disposing of those who mistake them for mere fairground attractions. (From IMDB)

Rules:

  • Stop motion
  • Someone says “Carnival”
  • Someone says “Tunes”

Quotes:

  • “I can do body work… baboom!”
  • “Have you seen my little muffy?”  (Response) “Who hasn’t?”
  • “He don’t go nowhere without his tunes.”
  • “This place is better than Epcot Center.”
  • “I’m a magician you sons of bitches!”

Viewer Quotes:

  • “Were girls actually uglier in the 80’s?”
  • “Can they re-brand the carnival to be the Devil’s Anus?”

Things We Learned:

  • Ghoulies can make cat sounds to lure in cat lovers and kill them with a switchblade.
  • 10 year olds have ninja throwing stars at their disposal to throw at wayward Ghoulies.
  • Having Ghoulies is a great way to make some extra mula from your crappy carnival ride.

Final Take:  Ghoulies delivers once again.  Like Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies Go to College,  this was great in terms of cheap entertainment and thrills.  Who doesn’t like a trashy carnival, especially circa 1988?
