While I hesitate to ascribe ANYTHING positive to this movie, I have to admit that I find it moderately interesting that Nick's deepest desire is not focused on sex. It's about being the big war hero.

It's not amazing, but it is moderately interesting.

So...where did they find footy PJs that would fit Mike? ...or am I simply making an assumption that Mike's PJs are footy PJs?

Lol, man, I'm glad my mom never made me watch Hobgoblins (or blew me up) for jumping on the couch. I must remember to give her a hug for that next time I see her. :P

This movie reminds me of watching my brother brush out his ridiculous mullet back in'86. It's almost equally as horrifying.

I hadn't seen this episode in awhile, so when I got to the end credits this time, two of the band members' names stuck out. Bassist Mark Hodson and drummer Tony Cicero (spelled "Cisero" in the end credits) were previously in a pretty good group called Saccharine Trust in the mid-80s. I've become pretty familiar with them from exploring the SST record label, probably most well known for Black Flag (their most well known member: Henry Rollins). They both appear on Sacch Trust's "Surviving You, Always" album from 1984, and Cicero continued onward to their next release "We Became Snakes" in 1986. Pretty good, jazzy, post-rock, post-punk, post-whatever-the-fuck-it's-called stuff.

I honestly want to see this movie remade with Daphne as the hero. Because all she wants to do is party and screw, she's apparently living her dream, making her almost immune to the hobgoblins's power. It could actually be a really good horror/comedy. Instead of being Hobgoblins. >.>

Watched this last night and it was painful. So. Bad. Even with the excellent riffing, we could barely make it to the end. This film makes "Manos" look like a cinematic masterpiece. I needed to be consoled and comforted after watching this.

This is one of the few UNBEARABLE episodes of the MST3K franchise! I've gotta give kudos to Mike & the bots for making it somewhat bearable

I cant believe that there would ever be a movie so bad that even the MST3K treatment couldn't make it bearable, but this IS that movie. Even with the boys riffing I cant bear watching this one. Give me Manos, give me Monster a go-go, give me a Roger Corman, Ed Wood marathon, but this...this...this

I hate this movie. To quantify, this movie is equal to 10 Castles of Fu Manchu or 13 Manos. In fact ISO should adopt the unit "Hobgoblins" as the universal standard unit of incompetence. Every ineptitude will forevermore be on a "Hobgoblins" scale. Similar to a "Munson" (from Kingpin).

So...the old man has had the vault rigged to blow up for 30 years. WHY didn't he just kill them off before? There's really no explanation for that, and I really don't get it. He sees them killing everyone who comes in contact with them, and yet, he lets them live in the vault? What kind of idiot is he?

Finally got a chance to watch Manos and Danger!! Death Ray. This movie, honestly, is Oscar worthy compared to those movies. At least it's actually "finished" and shows minimal guy's butts. 80s schlock horror movie heaven, and this has a ton of hilarious riffs.

For some reason I have really put off watching this one. I know it's supposed to be one of the best, and I've seen little clips of it before, but I really haven't wanted to watch it. Maybe it's because I know it's suppose to be such a rip-off of Gremlins, maybe it's because I dread the acting I'm going to see in an obvious horror film...I don't know. But tonight, I'm finally going for it.

Looking at imdb it appears that something called Retromedia is marketing the original version of this movie. Apparently they know how bad it is because the cover art features a picture of a large breasted bikini bimbo who isn't even in the movie.

Okay people asked me about the hobgoblins remake like a month ago and I just today found out how to see replies lol so sorry. Rick Sloan actually submitted the original movie to MST3K himself. And the "sequel" makes refrences and in jokes to mst3k episode, plus that song the mst3k guys did "hobgoblins hobgoblins whatcha gonna do with those hobgoblins" they used a version of that song for the remake. I know you might not believe me but here is the Wikipedia page. Also you can get the movie off of the rifftrax website should you wish to see the thing. At least you used to be able to.

There's something perversely admirable about a film that dares to not feature a single likeable character.

Lookit what we're handed here: Old Blithering Idiot lets his partner: Bland Teen Stereotype get horribly murdered by alien monsters. He then hires Annoying Whiny Douche to replace him. On his second day on the job, Annoying Whiny Douche manages to release said monsters who, despite having an entire city of victims to choose from, concentrate all of their effort on Annoying Whiny Douche's friends. There's his girlfriend: Frigid Emasculating Shrew, and his "pals": Scrawny Repugnant Whore and her boyfriend: Greasy Macho Scumbag....last and assuredly least is the 5th wheel: Effeminate Pervert Loser.
What a cast!
There is NO ONE and NOTHING to root for in this film save for the sweet release of death.

The 80s was the only time you could get away with street fighting with nun-chucks as your weapon of choice. And they always bring a pair for their opponent. That takes the kind of foresight you wouldn't expect from a person who goes around picking fights with nun-chucks.
