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 »

worse than the first
5 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What do you do if your career has remained stagnant for a decade? When the demand for films about hooker cops have dried up because the USA Network doesn't have "Up All Night" anymore? Well if you're Rick Sloan you make a remake/sequel to your (in)famous other film that only got ANY acknowledgement whatsoever by being featured on MST3K. But this time out, instead of being the butt of the joke, you'd seek to be in on the joke and make the movie intentionally campy. But you'd try way too hard & once again it would all end up in (predictable) disaster.

There's no point in describing the plot here, as if you've seen the first one, you've pretty much seen this. Oh the hobgoblins pray on peoples' fears instead of their fantasies and it's set a bit later then the first, but otherwise it's the same thing. Only somewhere worse because the movie's self-aware how bad it is the time out. Needless to say I didn't care for the movie in the least.

Eye Candy: None in the actual movie, but there are some topless babes in the trailer for "Mind, Body & Soul"

My Grade: D-

DVD Extras: Commentary with director Rick Sloan; 'Hobgoblins 2: what were they thinking?' (a 9 minute 50 second featurette on why Rick made the movie as well as the cast from the first one reacting to watching it); nearly 5 minutes (it seems longer) of worthless deleted scene; stills gallery; deathly unfunny fake trailers for Chainsaw Chicks, Nightmare of the lost whores, & Amputee Hookers; and sadly all-too real trailers for this film, as well as, "Hobgoblins", "the Visitants", "Blood Theater", "Good Girls Don't", & "Mind, Body & Soul"
