''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 -''and'' catchy- songs ever "sung" (which, despite this, the movie actually ''grinds to a hard stop'' to show the band performing said song in its entirety).

Sloane would later be known as the writer/director of the equally low-budget and ineptly-made ''ViceAcademy'' series of films which were a ratings hit for the USA Network.

And twenty years later, Rick Sloane ''made a sequel''. [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0962728/ Yes, really.]]

And twenty years later, Rick Sloane ''made a sequel''. [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0962728/ Yes, really.]]]] To this day, it is the only film ever covered on MST3K that had a sequel released after it was featured on the show.

** Outside of Club Scum, each of them passes their wallets on to the next one in the group for safekeeping. The last guy in line calmly pulls a switchblade and mugs everyone.

* 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)]].
