Films: Hobgoblins (1988)

Alias: None

Type: Alien/Mystical

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of teddy bears.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: When the crew of the Satellite of Love is saying how much they hate themselves for watching your film before it even gets past the opening credits, chances are we aren't going to have much sympathy when it all crashes and burns.

History: The Hobgoblins were a traveling group of space aliens looking for places to create murderous mischief. They settled on Earth, and soon, a bunch of stupid teenagers found themselves in pursuit of little bastards as they irritated and/or threatened to kill everyone.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: The Hobgoblins are eventually cornered in the film studio they inhabited in the first place, and are promptly blown up.

Powers/Abilities: They can conjure up fake realities for people to give them their greatest fantasy before using it to kill them.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-We will give them credit for creative powers, but damn, they are pathetic. They don't actually kill much of anyone, they look and act like rejected Gremlins, and above all, they're just annoying.

Trivia: -On the subject of MST3K, this is one of the few films that the filmmakers actually WANTED the crew to mock. But if the Hobgoblins should have taught them anything, it's to be careful what you wish for. How do we know? The showrunners decided that this film was up there with "Monster a Go Go" and "Invasion of the Neptune Men" as one of the worst films...no..."things"...they had to endure.

-As if that wasn't weird enough, the filmmakers decided in 2009 to release a sequel to bank on their film’s infamy. They even included the little song Mike and the Bots sang during one of the host segments.

Here's hoping they freeze to death in space.

More than two decades still feels like too late.
I didn't wish for this...not one bit.
