Storyline

On 31 October 1831, in the Hollow Glen village, the locals sacrifice what they consider "unclean" in a bonfire to protect their village. When they throw a deformed baby in the bonfire, his mother, who is a witch, curses the babies of the dwellers and creates an evil creature from the bones of her son to take their souls in the Halloween. The story of the Goblin becomes a legend. In the present days, Neil Perkins travels with his second wife Kate; his rebel teenage daughter Nikki; his baby son Nathan and Nikki's best friend Cammy to an isolated cabin in Hollow Glen expecting to start a business with his partner Owen. The family is warned to leave the village before the Halloween by the drunkard Charlie, but they do not give credit to his words. On 31 October, Neil, Kate and Owen have a meeting with Sheriff Milgreen and they leave Nathan with Nikki and Cammy. The two girls are visited by three friends and Nikki leaves Nathan alone for less than one minute. When she returns, the baby is ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

While not great, Goblin was much better than expected
21 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I was expecting Goblin to be complete rubbish, which is the standard I have to put with with a vast majority of SyFy's resume. But I was surprised that while not brilliant by any stretch of the imagination it was not bad either.

True, there are a lot of pacing issues with the movie moving a little too slowly for my liking. Goblin also starts off rather dull and the ending is a let-down and takes a while to set up. The dialogue is better than I thought it would be, but some of it was still rather idiotic.

However, the story is intriguing. While the pacing disallowed the story to do more than it had potential of doing, the idea was great and there are some scenes that have a genuine atmosphere to them. The production values are surprisingly not cheap with decent make-up and effects and atmospheric lighting and camera work. The music is also very creepy. The acting is also much better than anticipated, Gil Bellows especially manages to do something quite special with his role.

Overall, a better film than I thought it would be, but part of me thought it could've been better too. 6/10 Bethany Cox
