Gremlins (1984)


MPAA Rating: PG
Release Date: June 8, 1984 (USA)
Budget: $11m (estimated)
Running Time: 106 Minutes (Theatrical Version)

A young man (Billy Peltzer, played by Zach Galligan) is given a mysterious creature called a Mogwai as a Christmas gift from his father, along with three equally mysterious rules passed down from a young chinese boy;

1. Keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight, it’ll kill him.
2. Keep him away from water, don’t get him wet.
3. The most important rule, the rule you can never forget. Never. Never. Feed him after midnight.

The three rules are inadvertantly broken, and the city quickly becomes host to a gaggle of unruly creatures dubbed “Gremlins.” The sleepy  town of Kingston Falls, USA is turned upside down by the tiny green creatures on christmas eve, and only Gizmo & Billy, along with Billy’s dream girl, Kate,  (played by Phoebe Cates) can save the town from the menace and chaos of the Gremlins!

 Gremlins was one of two movies that prompted the MPAA to re-evaluate their rating system, and along with “Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom” inspired the PG-13 rating due to some scenes that are particularly graphic in both films.

In an original draft of the film, there was no “Gizmo” and all the mogwai turned into Gremlins, leaving it up to Billy to save the day with a small band of friends.

    I can’t really make up my mind on wheather I want a Gremlins 3 for theaters on not. But I really think some things in film should be left untouched.

    Anyone Here like Dante’s other films like-
    Small Soldiers?
    The ‘Burbs?
    Looney Toons: Back in Action?
    or Innerspace?

      Dante is a fantastic director and I am very excited to see The Hole coming soon.
      Matinee is probably the best on that list along with The ‘Burbs.

      Sure small soldiers was a spiritual spinoff of Gremlins, but it just felt too sane for my tastes.
      Looney Tunes was surprisingly enjoyable with a wonderful cast and fun Dante-brand cameos (including the gremlins theme!)

    i sucks that ghoustbusters got a v show, but tehri were more swears and more scary seens than gremlins, and gremlins was supose to get a tv show, bbut now a third film? if it was not for that f*cking game they released then ghoust busters would not happen, if they rea;eased the gremlin game, then gremlins 3 would happen years ago, i hope someone in the business ( in film or unrelaesed game) would release something, well i hope that the new clix game comes
