Just based on the title alone you know it's bad - following you around like some kind of disease, always a threat and dangerous to your well- being. Due to my special abilities, however, I'm able to deter the effects that this film has on most of its viewers...motivational loss, extreme boredom, possibly even suicide - luckily I'm able to repel the more serious side-effects but I cannot stave off the boredom it procures.. It's a pleasure of mine to bear such a heavy cross so the modern film-goer can understand what they are missing out on. I wonder if Matthew Lillard feels the same when he reminisces over the time he spent on this film - after all, it was his debut as an extra.
The plot is about two rival fraternities who continue to play pranks on one another...the school's dean even gets thrown into the mix, involuntarily, for some zany early 90's foolishness. The same man responsible for this film, John Buechler, also directed Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood from 1988. Well doesn't that just explain everything? He also directed a movie from 1986 called Troll - another creature feature involving puppets, John Buechler had somewhat a tenure with the 'Ghoulies...he was a special effects technician in both the first and second installment. He also helped write the original film. He can also be credited for having completed special effects work for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - it's a small world we live in.
What more can I tell you about Ghoulies III? Well...the humor is immature and not a funny type of immature. There's nothing impressive about the storyline or the creature effects, little to no gore, and plenty of raunchy moments that serve no basis. It tries so hard to be funny but I honestly don't see how anyone would appreciate it...unless of course, they were on drugs. Ghoulies III never saw a DVD release in the United States and I hope it stays that way.
