Have you ever watched Halloween IV? It’s fucking brilliant! Sometimes, cash-in slasher / splatter sequels turn out to be like joyous, rattling ghost train rides where people get thumbs pushed through their foreheads and cheeks.

Sometimes they turn out to be Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies Go To College, and no-one has a good time.

Let’s have a looksee, shall we.
