Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go to College
Mixing comedy and horror is not an easy task, it’s a delicate balancing act that requires a fundamental understanding of what makes each one work on their own and how to shift from one to the other. There are countless movies that have attempted to combine horror and comedy only to wind up failing on both fronts, Ghoulies III is one of those movies. The humor is,
at best, at the Troma level with only the most obvious jokes being delivered at
the most obvious times. Most of the jokes come from the Ghoulies themselves,
since they’ve been given the gift of speech in this installment of the
franchise. When they first started to speak I thought, “Oh, they’re kind of
referencing the Three Stooges here.” Then the slapstick came into play and I
realized, “Oh, they’re just ripping off the Three Stooges here.” If you’ve ever
seen Animal House, Revenge of the Nerds or UHF, you’ve pretty much already seen
all of the best parts of this movie.
