Looks like rebooting John Carpenter’s Halloween wasn’t enough for director David Gordon Green as he recently took part in a Reddit AMA – along with Danny McBride – and said he’d like the chance to reboot Critters and/or Ghoulies.
“I’d like to make a little Critters/Ghoulies movies,” Green said. “And I’ll get to work on Jody [Hill] right away.”
McBride added: “When I was a boy I asked my parents for Goonies for Christmas and they gave me a copy of Ghoulies, never gotten over it.”
Is Green serious when he says he wants the chance to make a Critters and/or Ghoulies movie? God, I hope so. But I guess only time will tell.
When strange fuzzy creatures from outer space arrive on a farm, the Brown family — Jay (Billy Green Bush), Helen (Dee Wallace-Stone), their daughter, April (Nadine Van Der Velde), and their son, Brad (Scott Grimes) — must fend off the malevolent little aliens.

As a child, Jonathan (Peter Liapis) was almost killed by his father, Malcolm (Michael Des Barres), during a satanic ritual.

During a party, he jokingly performs a ceremony described in one of his father’s books on black magic, not realizing he has unleashed small, demonic creatures known as “Ghoulies.”
