Storyline

This is the long awaited part 2 for writer/Director Rick Sloane's campy cult classic Hobgoblins shot in 1987. Old man McCreedy is locked away in a mental hospital when Kevin and his friends are revisited by the nasty creatures. Hobgoblins 2 is done in the style of Grindhouse, it was made to look like a 1980s cheesy horror film, down to having its own fake trailers included. Written by Hob 2

Trivia

Director Rick Sloane wanted the same look and feel as the original Hobgoblins (1988). Hobgoblins 2 was shot on 35mm film, using only 1-minute-long ends of film stock, which saved about $5,000. No CGI was used; all the effects were done on-camera or with composite shots. See more »

What a huge disappointment
21 July 2009 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I have very few times felt so disappointed with a movie as with Hobgoblins 2.But it did not disappoint me for being a bad movie,but because it is not enough bad.Or,better said,it is not so bad that it is good.The reason of that low (and at the same time high) expectation is its predecessor : Hobgoblins,a legendary piece of crap which was re-discovered 10 years after its release thanks to the public humiliation it received in Mystery Science Theater 3000, a brilliant TV programme which laughed of any pigswill whose rights were enough cheap to buy.That mockery it received was undoubtedly deserved.Hobgoblins was basically a rip-off of the excellent movie Critters,and it belonged to the wave of movies featuring hairy creatures which were so popular back in the 80's.Hobgoblins could not really be classified as a horror film...it is in fact an inept comedy which is full of clichés,from the teenager main characters to the horrible special effects which were common to see in low budget productions from that decade.Now,21 years later,I hoped that Hobgoblins 2 would fulfill with potential of being the sequel of one of the worst movies in the History of cinema (I am not exaggerating by saying that).I thought this movie was going to be so epically bad that it would case serious consequences : it should provoke psychological damage on me; alter the colours from the television; leave traces on the sofa...in summary,I expected to see an epic piece of crap which would finally cure my obsession with the "B" cinema, or at least,that I would become into a reincarnation of Joe Bob Briggs (he is not dead,do not misunderstand),in other words,a person who is able to enjoy even the worst movies.Unfortunately,Hobgoblins 2 resulted to be tedious and execrable.In other words,it was not so bad that it was good...it was simply bad.In summary : an enormous disappointment,which was even bigger to the one I took with Star Wars : Episode 1 : The Phantom Menace.I think that the main problem with Hobgoblins 2 was that I could not recognize which aspects from it were intentional or accidental.The horrible "jokes" from the screenplay completely fail...seriously,did director and screenwriter Rick Sloan think they would make somebody to laugh? But his work was not only disastrous as a screenwriter,but also as a director,because this movie is full of continuity problems and it never finds a good rhythm or tone.Other important fails from this movie are the incoherent dialogs and the pathetic performances.Hobgoblins 2 is a truly execrable movie which does not deserve to even exist.Stay very far away from it.

Rating : 0 (rating this movie with a 1 out of 10 is way too much)
