In an old abandoned movie studio, security guards continue to be mysteriously murdered. The mystery: why are there so many security guards for an abandoned old movie studio ?! But forget about it; the real secret is the Hobgoblins! Cheap rubber puppets from outer space! Who vaguely resemble the Gremlins! But not enough to sue! Their power: they will make your wildest fantasies come true, then you die laughing and embarrassingly.
The studio’s new security guard, Kevin (no parent) quickly learns the secret of the Hobgoblins, and lets them escape even faster. Now it’s up to inept Kevin and his sexually obsessed pals to thwart the Hobgoblins before they take over the world, or at least various neighborhoods in the greater Los Angeles area!
Back in the days of the Mystery Science Theater 3000, the Hobgoblins nearly destroyed Mike and the Bots. But the combined powers of Bill, Mike and Kevin will turn that miserable piece of cheese into comedy gold!
“RiffTrax Live: Amityville 4: Evil Escapes”

There’s still some trouble up there in the old house in Amityville. A group of priests come together to suppress the demon that has long plagued this charming Dutch colony with five beds and four bathrooms, full of old world charm and charm. BUT – evil escapes! Which should have been made evident by the title of the film. And how does he escape? Like all evil: owning a tasteless street lamp, being sold at a garage sale, and shipped to Los Angeles, where most evil house decorations end up finding a home.
Soon the demonic lamppost begins its reign of terror in the home of an innocent family, killing pets and repairmen, forcing children to use power tools in dangerous ways, and possessing the soul of younger sister Jessica, which immediately begins to act like a total shake.
It’s up to the young priest Father Kibbler to save the family and face the evil lamp, facing the bulb, before other people die. Okay, more people are dying, but can Father Kibbler finally end it? Join Bill, Mike and Kevin in theaters nationwide for the perfect Halloween gift: a night out with Rifftrax Live and Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes!
