The old guy in this movie reminds me of a sub I used to get sometimes back in high-school named Coach LaRue. It's funny because we used to make fun of how old he was. Because he was ancient, he was a stowaway on Noah's arch, and his blood-type was discontinued. I tried to get him a birthday present once but I couldn't afford one after buying the candles. You know what he did in the war? He sacrificed cattle to Marduk.

This movie, more than almost any other (except Manos) makes me ask the question: What the hell is wrong with everyone in this movie?

Seriously, why did they make a movie where every single character is an inconsiderate turd?

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.

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. >.>

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).

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.

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.
