Director: Joe Dante
Main Stars: Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates
Storyline: A teenage boy gets a special gift for Christmas, fuzzy cute little creatures which if the rules are not followed all hell breaks loose.
Review (Spoils): This film is an 80s classic and screams Christmas. Sure Gremlins can be seen a silly and childish but if you look at the creatures and the idea of the dark humor it could seen as creepy. We have young Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) who gets hold of a box of strange little fuzzy creatures with three simple rules. When the rules do not get followed and one of the creatures Spike (names after the white streak of hair) gets wet all the creatures start to over take the same town.
We have a bunch of nasty green puppets running around and over taking the town. The one creatures that is favorited by Billy did not breaks the rules named Gizmo helps him and his hot girlfriend Kate (Phoebe Cates) to stop the gremlins for over taking the town. We have gremlins driving vehicles, running machines, eating, drinking and causing complete havoc. Nothing over the top gory but we do have some green slime blood and some explosions.
Rating: This film is a horror Christmas classic, sure not scary and more fun and silly but we have green creatures, 80s pop culture and the every 80s childhood lust Phoebe Cates (which is worth the film alone).
