“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Ghoulies Go to College (1991)
aka Ghoulies III
How bad is it? Second sequel in an inferior franchise that ran dry in the original. Should you see it? Only if you're a fan of someone in the cast.
This was released on VHS in the U.S., but on DVD overseas; that confusion seems to be par for this film. The critters (oops, sorry, that's a different rip-off of Gremlins) talk in this sequel for some reason... and they talk a lot. Kevin McCarthy plays the dean of a college, Jason Scott Lee is a member of one of two fraternities playing pranks on each other, Marcia Wallace plays Miss McButtock (yes, that's the level of humor) and Hope Marie Carlton and Eva LaRue are the eye candy. The ghoulies arise from a toilet after an incantation from a comic book. One victim is flushed down a toilet. There's a lot of toilets.
