''Hobgoblins'' is a movie that has to be seen to be believed. The haircuts, fashions and generic music showcase most of what was wrong with [[TheEighties the '80s]]. The plot is completely uninspired, the monsters are [[FollowTheLeader blatantly ripped off]] from ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'', the [[SpecialEffectsFailure "special effects"]] are completely atrocious and the soundtrack contains one of the most incomprehensible songs ever "sung" (which, despite this, the movie actually ''grinds to a hard stop'' to show the band performing said song in its entirety).

Added DiffLines:

* AllForNothing: The entire section of the movie in which the main characters try to chase down and catch the Hobgoblins turns out to be pointless since the Hobgoblins end up returning to the movie studio on their own.

* ActionGirl: Daphne is the closest thing to this. For a horrible, irritating person, she does manage to directly dispatch a few Hobgoblins and actually shows some intelligence by getting wise to one of their "fantasies" [[spoiler: (Blowing up the fantasy-military Sargent in the process)]].

* AutoErotica: with a side order of {{Squick}}. Nothing happens in the car, mind you, it's just that the fantasy-woman is rather trashy, husky/nasally-voiced & repulsive.

* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: Hahahaha... '''You wish.''' It sure does take a while for the title creatures to show up on-screen, and by then you want them to murder the whole cast.

* BetterByADifferentName: The basic premise is eerily similar to ''{{WesternAnimation/Animaniacs}}''.
