A few weeks ago, original Ghoulies creators Jefery Levy and Luca Bercovici revealed they are looking to reboot the franchise. And today, Levy spoke with our buddies over at Bloody Disgusting, revealing plans for a new trilogy of films.
He says: “I wanna reboot the franchise. Not just one movie, I wanna try and make a three-picture deal. Without giving too much away, one can truthfully say that “Ghoulies” has become a part of pop culture, and it is this same pop culture that becomes both the milieu and the next victim for the “Ghoulies” of the 21st century; music, fame, technology, social media, all are grist for the “Ghoulies” mill. No icon too big to fiendishly destroy, no cow too sacred to be attacked with tiny, slavering jaws. ‘They’ll get you in the end’ will take on an entirely new and funny meaning.”
The original film centers on a young man who moves into an old mansion home, where he becomes possessed by a desire to control ancient demons.
It was directed by Luca Bercovici from a script he wrote with producer Jefery Levy. It stars Peter Liapis, Lisa Pelikan, Michael Des Barress, and Jack Nance.
