So here’s the deal: if you’re watching this movie alone, watch the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version. If you’re watching this with friends, watch the original. This movie is so entertainingly bad that you’ll be howling together and making your own storyline jokes. So! The movie. A youngish dude and an older dude are running security at an old film studio. The young guy opens a vault door and releases some little furry hobgoblins out of captivity. The hobgoblins are reeeeeal Germlin-looking creatures, without any of the charm or advanced puppetry of Gremlins. Best scene in the movie? When the two guys have an extended rake and garden hoe fight scene. And then the van rocking and the NOISE it makes. Well, and every scene with a hobgoblin. Particularly the hobgoblin/teen dance party.
