Valley bringing up Ghoulies reminded me how I always got Ghoulies and Munchies confused.

Why are there so many movies about little demonic critters in the 80's?

Which of the flicks is your favorite?
only in the last few years have I bought Ghoulies and Munchies.

Did you guys know there was even two extremely cheesy sequels to Munchies?

Some of those little critters still give me the creeps. I still think I take a second look at the toilet seat every time I leave it thanks to those Ghoulies! LOL. I've never seen Munchies, but I think I saw Creepies. Out all the little devils I still think I like Gremlins the best.

You got the Munchies Muffy? I thought you gave that stuff up. [Big Grin]

I actually never saw that movie. The Ghoulies I haven't seen in years....will have to watch it again.

GREMLINS was good,
GHOULIES was horrible
MUNCHIES (from the 1o minutes I saw of it) was even worse than GHOULIES (if thats possible)

I have never seen CRITTERS, (Worth a rent?)

Why do I keep thinking of Kelly LeBrock when I look at the MUNCHIES cover art? hahaha

Gremlins and the Phoebe Cates story about her dad is by far the best of the bunch. However, Gremlins success can be blamed for the on slaught of all the other not so great flicks that followed as well.

I like Gremlins and all the Critters (believe it or not). I didn't like Ghoulies and I remember Munchies but I don't remember if I ever saw it.

Awww..look how cute Gizmo is! I remember even before I saw the movie having a poster of Gizmo riding in a pink car over my bed in my room as a kid.

He's so cute you almost WOULD adopt a mogwai even though you know all the **** that could go wrong! Who could resist that face???

I actually liked Critters – starring Billy Zane when he still had hair – better than Gremlins. I know, I’m probably alone on this.
Sadly enough it isn’t available around these regions while Ghoulies (which I don’t like) is.

Never saw Munchies.

Zane was good in this flick. I saw this movie like 5 times at the drive in and on HBO. It's a classic!

Here is the DVD in your region:

Here are all 4 of them:

Gremlins, though Critters 1 is good for a laugh or as part of a double bill with Tremors. Got to say I prefered Gremlins 2 though.

i'd go with the furry balls rolling around the earth anyday, over gremlins. i never cared too much for gremlins, though my daughter loves both parts.

i like all the critters movies, mainly 1, 2 & 3.

I rented CRITTERS last night and watched it with my daughter who complained it was "boring". I curse like a sailor but , man, there was a lot of cursing in that movie considering it was an '80s kids movie! hahaha

I totally didnt realize that was Billy Zane!!!! Wow, he looks good with hair!!!!

Speaking of "ohmygosh..could that be....?" movies, GHOULIES has Mariska Hargitay (hope I got that last name right - well, you know - the girl from LAW & ORDER) in it lookin' damn fine. I didn't realize it was her until AFTER the movie and then - bad as the movie WAS- I felt like watching it again just to really watch HER now that I knew it was her.

Sooooo....
#1. GREMLINS
#2. CRITTERS
#3. GHOULIES
#101. MUNCHIES

Well it's that time of year again folks, when you turn on the TV, and hear this big gruff voice telling you all about this little fluffy pet he bought for his kid for Christmas. A Mogwai to be precise, and boy oh boy is Billy gonna love him!!!

So listen to Rockin Ricky Rialto and pop in Gremlins, you know you wanna!!!!!!

Of these 4 "little creatures" movies, I've seen Gremlins, Ghoulies, and Critters. I've yet to watch Munchies, although I recall seeing Munchie as a young kid. It was terrible.

Gremlins is by far my #1 favorite out of all these for reasons already mentioned by others. Critters is probably the best of the Gremlins-inspired movies. I love the little dialogues between the Krites where their speech is translated into English via subtitles. I always got a kick out of those scenes as a kid and still do today.

Ghoulies is a major disappointment because they're hardly in the movie despite their being plastered all over the poster and DVD/VHS boxes. Ghoulies 2 was a much better follow-up.

You can definitely count me as someone who'd take a mogwai for a pet. I've seen the movie so many times I can recite the three rules by heart and in the order they were given(I swear, scout's honor!). Wouldn't it be neat if mogwai were real animals? Ah, I can always dream.
