Chud.com’s Movie Of The Day is Gremlins 2: The New Batch

http://www.chud.com/articles/articles/23521/1/MOVIE-OF-THE-DAY-GREMLINS-2—THE-NEW-BATCH/Page1.html

A nice addition to the Movie Of The Day series, even though there are a couple minor mistakes in the article. Primarily I refer to the mention of “Obviously dead” characters returning. While it was implied that the Futtermans (brilliantly played by Jackie Joseph and Dick Miller) were in a “freak accident” involving a snowplow, they were not killed.

Granted in the original script and up until the test screenings, reports have said that they were indeed killed, and even mentioned by Lew Landers, but were removed at the reaction from the screening audiences. The Futtermans were very likable characters and having them be absolutely killed is a bit dark even for Gremlins.

    You know, at the end of Gremlins, pay attention to what the news are saying on TV, and you will hear something like “we talked to Murray Futterman…” just after Kate says “don’t chew that” to Gizmo.
    So at least, Murray and Sheila didn’t even die in the first movie !
