Everything you need to know about the Ghoulies series

The Ghoulies film series started with the Charles Band produced Ghoulies (1984). It was a huge success, riding the tail of Gremlins (1984). A sequel was made that brought the ghoulies monsters from being background characters to the main attraction; however, the due to poor investments, the success of the films lead to the bankruptcy of the production studio, Empire International Pictures.

How are the Ghoulies films connected?

The easy answer would be “the ghoulies,” but the monsters vary drastically between films, and I am not even sure the creatures in Ghoulies IV (1994) are ghoulies. That film is a direct sequel to the first one though since the lead character returns.

Ghoulies II (1987) is by far the best one and most fun, but I would also check out the original.
