Ghoulies are (naturally) some sort of creatures that appear when one messes with things that ought not be messed with.
It was Winston Churchill who spoke immortal words akin to "One should ever use a preposition to end a sentence with."
For those who appreciate ultra low-budget films with cute little puppet creatures doing dastardly deeds, Luca Bercovici's Ghoulies may be your cup of tea.
Presumably a low-budget answer to Joe Dante's delightful Gremlins, Ghoulies, along with Ghoulies II (1988), Ghoulies go to College (1991), and Ghoulies IV (1994) take a place among films presumably created for foreign sales.
For those who feast on such things, Scream Factory's double-bill Blu-ray of G and GII is a quality release. Except for some shots in the first film, which appear a bit unsaturated, both films are nice transfers from what appear to be decently made IPs. Audio is fine.
