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.

    well as i said before gizmo in gremlins 2 was made by someone else, and the movie commentary does not say but im sure it took a while.

    I hope they never make Gremlins 3. The first two films are very good and they don’t need a sequel.

    Anyone seen Hobgoblins? now that is the worst Gremlins rip-off of them all, it was shown on MST3K and it’s just sooo mind numbingly horrible that it’s almost toxic waste that the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew suffered.

    You all should definitely watch Critters 1 & 2 since they are suprisingly fun and enjoyable Gremlins-esque Sci-fi horror comedies only different and part 2 is almost better due to that sexy alien bounty hunter centerfold chick.

    And anyone thinks Gremlins inspired films like Cat’s Eye, Child’s Play, Dolls, Puppet Master, The Gate etc. in terms of little killers movies?

    By the way, stripe I’m not scared, I just did that because when I was little I thought Gizmo was real.
