"Jim Henson's worst nightmare."
1 stars

What happens when Jim Hensonís puppet workshop goes mad?

Hobgoblins. In other words, another terrible, Eighties-dated would-be horror flick about a bunch of wicked, mind-controlling puppets that see to an unhealthy dosage of bloodletting and havoc, all to wrap itself up into a tidy package that it burst out from at the start. Itís to be lost in the doldrums of so many travesties of the time period. Not even a later comic Mystery Science Theatre 3000 redaction can make a difference.

Written and directed by Rick Sloane. With Paige Sullivan.

Final Verdict: F.
