When Good Ghouls Go Bad Plot Synopsis:

In October of 1981, Curtis Danko, the creepy kid from the small town of Walker Falls, was killed in a mysterious accident. He left behind a warning to the town: "If you ever have another Halloween again, I will return and destroy you all!" Curtis was buried in a locked crypt, along with a sculpture so evil, that unearthly fates were said to await anyone who looked at it. Now, twenty years later, the Walker men have returned to Walker Falls. They start a chain of events that unleashes an army of zombies on the town. Has Curtis Danko risen from the grave to exact his revenge? And will the people of Walker Falls make it through the night?

When Good Ghouls Go Bad (2001) Review

Patrick Read Johnson directed When Good Ghouls Go Bad (2001) is a ghoul comedy that won 1 movie award and was nominated for another award. When Good Ghouls Go Bad is based on a story by R.L. Stine.


When Good Ghouls Go Bad is about twelve-year-old Danny Walker is shocked to learn that the small Minnesota town he just moved to can’t celebrate Halloween because of a local curse. With the help of his recently deceased (but still kicking) Uncle Fred, Danny must battle an army of prankster ghouls rising from the ground to break the curse once and for all - and bring back the magic of Halloween.

When Good Ghouls Go Bad is an entertaining film for younger audiences but is a bit boring for older audiences. The zombies in this film all deliver excellent performances with Christopher Lloyd topping the crowd. This movie is not a film I will rush to watch again but once a year around Halloween is not bad.
