Well, I must admit that I had expected just a bit more than what "Goblin" turned out to be. I mean, at least I had hoped for a proper creature feature of sorts, but instead I was served a slow paced storyline with a horribly CGI animated goblin. One might hope that a movie such a the 2020 "Goblin" from writer Rosa Parnake and director Chris Lee would have turned out to be an interesting movie and a good addition to the creature feature genre, but that was most certainly not the case. The storyline in "Goblin" was just so generic it was boring to watch. And it didn't help much that the pacing of the movie was so incredibly slow. Nor did it help much that the dialogue was as horrible as the characters were one-dimensional. Yeah, it just wasn't the finest moment of cinema history here. For a horror movie, then "Goblin" was anything but scary. There was virtually nothing scary in the movie, unless you count really, really bad CGI as being scary. If so, then you're in for a treat. It puzzles me that movies with this level is dubious CGI still get to see the light of day in 2020. "Goblin" is a movie that you might as well give a very wide berth, because it was not entertaining, nor was it particularly enjoyable either. Yet, I managed to sit through the ordeal right up to the bitter end. My rating of "Goblin" is a mere two out of ten stars. You are best off spending your time, money and effort elsewhere, trust me.
