Hobgoblins 2

Please choose a format above.

It’s rare that a mere number could be so terrifying, so unsettling, so deeply wrong. But a simple “2” following the word “Hobgoblins” is… well, it’s almost more than sanity can bear. Brace yourselves for a doozy, folks: it’s real, it’s here, it’s Hobgoblins 2!

If you’ve always loved the original Hobgoblins… WHY?? Was it the horny army guy, the horny nerd, the horny dancing girl, or the bookish girlfriend who refuses to be horny? Don’t worry about answering that, but good news, they’re all back for the sequel! Except, they’re played by different actors, and despite being the same characters, they don’t seem to remember the events of the first movie. Only one returning character does: McCreedy, the old security guard who kept the Hobgoblins locked up in a film vault. McCreedy’s back, but also played by a new actor, who’s impressively even more confused than the original, and perhaps not totally aware he’s in a movie.

And of course, the real stars of the show are back: the puppets! They’re a little older, a little mangier, but still fully able to attack victims as long as said victims grab them and hold them against their own faces. This time, they show up when you say “Hobgoblins” three times. Or, when you’re afraid. Or, when you’re lusting after the new Internet version of Fantazia. Basically, they’re around.

Released twenty years after the original and yet somehow a massive step backwards, take a night off from hanging out at Club Scum and join Mike, Kevin and Bill for Hobgoblins 2!

Written by: Mike Nelson, Conor Lastowka, and Sean Thomason

Contributing writers: Jason Miller and Zach Shatzer

Rated TVPG for light blood, sexual humor, some bad audio dubbing, and excessive puppet wrestling.
