What the heck is Ghoulies?! Excuse us for not knowing, since Gremlins was the overwhelming hit and let’s be real — we all wanted Mogwais after seeing it! Both films are about crazy little destructive monsters who start wreaking havoc on the world. The only big difference is that the Gremlins start out as cute little beasts. Maybe that’s why the Ghoulies wasn’t as big of a hit — we didn’t fall in love with their adorable faces before they started acting like nutcases! Gremlins will forever go down as one of the biggest creature features of all time, and it still makes us question even feeding ourselves after midnight!
