Episode 52 – Pondering What Was In Dick’s Glasses

Movies discussed: Ghoulies, Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead

Pretty solid week this week with one of Matt’s favorites Re-Animator, the decidedly sub-par Ghoulies and then the fully C.H.U.D.ed out Return of the Living Dead.

This weeks assignments: Gonzo movies! (Beats me, we didn’t know what else to call it)

  1. I swear that Netflix added Ghoulies and Re-Animator right before this podcast got released right now, and that they weren’t there at the start of the week. Now I have to delay listening a bit…

    I saw Ghoulies as an adult, so there’s no nostalgia goggles here, but I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. The fact that the Ghoulies are implied to be/treated as elemental spirits, like demented gnomes and wind imps and crap, justified in my mind their size and allowed me to ignore that it is a low-budget Gremlins rip-off. Sometimes the 80’s Satanic Panic can come through by delivering an authentic-seeming occult vibe to b-horror-movies.

  3. Josh: The guy from the cemetary… his pant leg got torn when the guys showed him the moving arm. The arm grabbed him and the other guys pulled the arm off him, tearing his pant leg.

  4. There are parts of Ghoulies that are so ridiculous that they crack me up, but it’s not that great. 4/10

    Re-Animator is solid. I’m always tempted to watch it after it gets brought up. 7/10.

    Return of the Living Dead is a classic. 8.5/10.

    Matt, you said you avoided watching Ghoulies as a kid because the box art scared you too much. Movies that you were too scared to watch as a kid would make a solid theme week. It took me until my mid 20’s to see Creepshow. The Ticket Taker scared the piss out of me.

  5. What was in Dick’s glasses was little wipers. Dude had windshield wipers on his glasses, it even had a closeup of him flipping them back and forth.

  6. You guys are the best. You bring the power and the fury.

    • Mostly I just brought the “ow” and the “fu” since I broke an ankle and a foot while listening to this episode. :) (It had nothing to do with listening to the podcast and everything to do with a loose brick in my patio.)

    Man I was excited to see Ghoulies again…until five minutes into the film when I remembered Ghoulies 2 was the good one.
