Product Description

In 1831, on the eve of Halloween, the villagers of Hollow Glen engage in an annual festival where they toss their diseased crops into a blazing fire, in hopes of blessing them with an abundant field for the next year. But when one couple takes the ritual too far and throws their sickly, deformed child into the inferno, their murderous action results in something far more horrific than they could have imagined. Out of the ashes and smoke rises something so evil, so monstrous, that the town is forever cursed. This creature is known as THE GOBLIN…and he waits for the moments when he can seek his revenge!

HASH(0xa5117420) out of 5 stars Excellent deep woods monster flick May 24 2011
By Wuchak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Filmed in the deep woods of British Columbia, 2010's "Goblin" tells the story of a cursed forest hamlet wherein an extremely tall and malicious goblin appears every Halloween to kill newborns in the town and anyone else who may get in the way.

Unlike joke-horror films like "Cabin Fever", "Goblin" takes the material totally serious with zero camp or goofiness. This is the way monster movies should be done. After all, once an element of goofiness is introduced it's no longer possible to take the film serious and therefore impossible to be horrified by the events, which is one of the main purposes of horror movies.

I was impressed with the quality of the acting & writing, particularly for a low-budget TV movie. The characters are not one-dimensional; they're written as believable human beings and the actors, professionals that they are, are able to follow suit.

This one has all the mandatory staples of a deep woods horror flick -- gorgeous babes, gorgeous babes fleeing in terror, gorgeous babes fleeing in terror with titillating clothing (I'm just having fun so don't take me too seriously, lol), youthful romantic liaisons, creepy malicious monster, good characters to root for, particularly the father (Gil Bellows) and his family/friends.

The "gorgeous babes" include the main protagonist Tracy Spiridakos, blond cutie Erin Boyes and Julia Maxwell, the latter clad in a hot-goth-girl costume with sexy stockings & high heels (no wonder the Goblin goes after her!). Bellow's wife in the story, Camille Sullivan, also deserves an honorable mention.

Speaking of the monster, aren't goblins supposed to be small-ish creatures? Not so here. The goblin in this movie is close to 7' tall and has the ability to teleport. When he's fully revealed in the final ten minutes he looks too-obviously CGI and Grade-B Pumpkinhead, but throughout most of the film he appears in a cool black hooded robe, which makes him somehow more mysterious, gothic and eerie. The fact that he emits a horrible stench is an excellent touch.

One critic on the internet criticized the film on the grounds of "the reasoning behind the random killings is terrible. If the thing hunts babies why's it laying waste to random people with no babies? Totally retarded." My response: The goblin's prime directive is to kill babies in light of the curse and because infants represent undefiled new life and potential. As for laying waste to random people, the old man clearly points out near the end that, because the goblin hunts babies, it sniffs out the scent of infants on any person who's been near one; hence, his attraction to the girls who were babysitting the baby Nathan. The goblin is obviously a demon, a minion of the devil, do you think a demon is going to spare the life of anyone who gets in its way? What's the pupose of demons anyway? To "kill, steal and destroy". Hence, the goblin was excited at the prospect of extra people to terrify and kill.

On the downside: Although the story takes place during Halloween, it's obviously summertime (look at the kid's clothes and the foliage, etc.). Also, the climax with the car and spear is rather roll-your-eyes. But these negatives are minor in view of the entire film.

FINAL WORD: Make no mistake, despite being a TV film, "Goblin" is a standout deep woods monster flick. The goblin is actually frightning and the protagonists are so believable and three-dimensional that you care about them, and are literally shocked when the monster tears them to pieces.


ENDNOTE: On another site a reviewer accused me of somehow being involved in the production of "Goblin" since I gave it a "glowing review." The truth is I had nothing to do with this production or any other film production. I'm not in the business. I write amateur reviews simply because I like to write and share my views. Secondly, I had no qualms about pointing out the film's (minor) flaws. Regardless, I stand by my review. I evaluate films according to what they are and aspire to be. No genre is beyond redemption or beneath contempt. In this case "Goblin" is low-budget TV monster flick and I rated it accordingly.

HASH(0xa5117474) out of 5 stars themeatnpotatoesofitall Feb. 17 2012
By Jesse S. Sconza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
first off I did not buy it from amazon. and paid waaaayy to much..had some time to burn so I bought it at the mall..movie is worthy for what it is priced at on amazon..which gives it 5 star entry.. creature on cover looks nothing like the one in the movie.. didn't care much for the cover . I figured it was in mid transformation or something..yeah, I tend to over think things...movie creature looks more goblinnish.. enjoyed the way the creature moved about..it gave the movie a very Halloweeny feel to it. I would have limited the CGI to action scenes..forged a cool costume & puppet props kinda like what they used in the movie "The last Lovecraft" ( though with a Goblin design)..movie consist of creature, family guy w/ wife & baby, creepy town folk, and stupid teenage victims in love, and a annoying real estate agent..what more could you ask for..( a little Popcorn and a ice tea)the kill scenes were decent not Boring or predictable. The creature makes up for some of the less talented actors..overall I thought the team that put this movie together did a great job.. with the budget they probably had to work with.I thought it was a valient effort.I hope the team that put this together continue to put more movies out..5 star for the B-Genre..if you liked this check out "Creature of Darkness" and if you want something with a heavier dose of Gore check out "Evil Aliens " uncut..

I love this movie. I Dont Understand, how this movie could have bad reviews. It is Very Original, and is very creepy! It doesn't have that "Generic" Feel, like ALOT of Low Budget movies tend to have. If you like B Movies, or Any horror movies, you will love this movie.

By Einsatz - Published on Amazon.com

I wish the goblin in the movie looked like the fabulous creature depicted on the DVD cover but it doesn't. Instead, there's a flying cloak that occasionally takes on some cartoon features when it stands upright. As for the plot, it's fairly routine. A family with a baby is lured to a small settlement out in the middle of nowhere (picture an occasional building surrounded by forest). You have to travel some distance to get from one place to another. Very few townsfolk are ever shown, sans babies of any kind. Because once upon a time, there was a curse delivered by an angry witch loathed to have her baby burned in a bonfire. Seems a little nitpicky as they were simply trying to do away with anything deemed harmful to their community. They also tossed corn, rotten apples, and a locust into these self-same flames. They were blights and one can't have blights and expect to still be pretty! Fast forward to present day when no one is receiving any gifts. Cell phones don't work. Some snarky teens show up in time to meet the resident cloak on a rampage. Before you can say "what just happened here," people are dying and the only baby for miles around goes missing. Something evil is afoot and it's not just the goblin.

Except for some unfortunate casting problems and the aforementioned mishap while trying to design a believable (never mind scary) goblin, not a bad little effort. It was dopey. I liked it. Naturally, I was rooting for the baby.

HASH(0xa5117c18) out of 5 stars More character development than you'd expect Aug. 28 2011
By M. S. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Goblin starts pretty much like so many low budget horrors these days: Way back when, a sacrifice goes wrong, witch gets angry, curse put on town. Boom, teens with great hair die. But there's a little more story and a little more character in Goblin. It's certainly routine, but action keeps coming, the Goblin is well designed (mostly because it's under a hooded cape 80 percent of the time), and a lot of it happens in broad daylight. Imagine that! A horror movie in daylight! Anyway, i found a lot of the characters interesting, and i didn't see some of the plot twists coming, which was fun. Not one to own, but a decent rental.
