Ghoulies IV isn’t really a horror movie so much as it’s an
action movie with some supernatural elements. Heck, it’s barely even a Ghoulies
movie. The familiar puppety oddballs we’ve seen in every other installment in
the franchise have been replaced by two little people in Ghoulie costumes with
inexpressive masks. The story follows Jonathan Graves, the lead from the first
Ghoulies movie, who’s become a play-by-his-own-rules cop who is really into
kinky sex. One of Jonathan’s ex-girlfriends is attempting to steal a jewel that
will allow her to release her dark master from Hell. She coincidentally brings
two Ghoulies to Earth who proceed to watch the events of the film unfold without
ever really getting involved. It’s literally 75 minutes into the 83 minute film
before any of the characters directly interact with the two Ghoulies. At one
point I was impressed by an action sequence involving a runaway car and
multiple vehicle crashes, but it turns out that said sequence was edited into
the film from an entirely different Jim Wynorski production.
