In the 1984 movie "Ghoulies", Peter Liapis plays Jonathan Graves, a man who has just inherited his father's mansion. Jonathan is skeptical about his father's love for the dark arts and is initially dismissive of the strange rituals he finds in the house. However, his friends decide to throw a party at the mansion and they stage a fake ritual for the amusement of the guests.

Jonathan takes part in the ritual, but it soon becomes clear that he has summoned a group of demonic creatures called the "ghoulies". These creatures are small, mischievous imps that enjoy causing chaos and destruction.

The ghoulies are initially harmless, but their presence quickly spirals out of control. The creatures start to manipulate the minds of Jonathan's friends, turning them against him and causing them to behave in erratic and dangerous ways. As more and more people become aware of the ghoulies, Jonathan is forced to confront the dark forces that his father was so interested in.

As the story progresses, the ghoulies become increasingly menacing. They begin to wreak havoc on the mansion, destroying furniture and causing fires. Jonathan and his friends are forced to fight back against the creatures, using everything at their disposal to try and defeat the demonic imps.

Throughout the movie, there are a number of tense and scary moments, as the ghoulies grow in power and start to take over the mansion. There are also a number of comedic moments, as the ghoulies engage in silly and often absurd behavior.

One of the standout aspects of "Ghoulies" is its special effects. For a low-budget horror movie, the makeup and creature design are impressive. The ghoulies themselves are creepy and grotesque, with sharp teeth and glowing eyes. The use of puppetry and practical effects helps to create a sense of realism that is often missing from modern horror movies.

Overall, "Ghoulies" is a fun and entertaining horror movie that is well worth watching.
