[Remember This?] ‘Gremlins’ Inspired ‘Hobgoblins’ Trailer Is Out Of Its Mind!!!


If I admit to something will you guys still like me? Hobgoblins totally passed me by. I’ve never seen it and I hadn’t even seen the trailer until I came across it earlier today. It actually looks like something I’d watch though. IMDBPro lists the budget of director Rich Sloane’s independently produced feature as $15K. I’m not sure how that was possible in the 1980’s on 35MM film, so maybe that’s an erroneous number. If it’s true? Right on, man.

I think my favorite line in the whole thing is, “and also they kill you.” I’m not sure if it’s intentionally hilarious or just hilariously inept, but I think my next move is to hunt this baby down on Netflix. If it’s not there, I’ll wait. Turns out I’ve been waiting for 25 years. If you can manage to make Critters and Ghoulies look like Oscar contenders, bravo!

Check it out below!

    It’s funny bad. It used to be on Amazon Prime for free, but I just checked and now they want 2.99 for a rental. I wouldn’t recommend it for that price.

    After suffering through it, you can indulge yourself even more by watching the sequel. $6.00 for three hours of lameness, I’ve paid more for less, check them out.

    even those 2 minutes of the trailer is enough,unless you are completely stoned…..

  • Chelsea

    I think I saw this on Mystery Science Theater 3000. The 80’s must have been a magical time.

    • J-SiN

      Yes, I believe that was why the sequel was made, more of an attempt to make fun of itself. You can actually catch the MST3K showing of the movie on you tube.

    Ghoulies, Munchies, Critters, Hobgoblins, Cats eye, and Gremlins all show the fascination in the 80’s for small monsters.I don’t know what that was all really about though I loved them as a kid, but I would trade cgi for the puppets of old anyday. These puppets used in this film above are pretty bad however.

  • SkullBunnie

    Hobgoblins is definitely one of the FUnnier Mystery Science Theater 300 episodes. The Movie is GOD AWFUL!

    Oh great they’re bringing back small ugly creatures again… of course.
