Plot: The most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight...
The tale of a cute and furry Christmas gift that multiplies into many, many, many terrifying Christmas gifts, GREMLINS is a sublimely perfect mix of comedy and horror. This December, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment presents a movie party celebration of the hilarious and wickedly scary 1984 film, featuring a special conversation with director Joe Dante that’ll take you behind the scenes of this all-time classic.
Beginning life as a spec script by Chris Columbus that was championed by executive producer Steven Spielberg, what’s amazing about GREMLINS is how everything works so, so well. Joe Dante’s cast is splendid, featuring newcomer Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, Hoyt Axton, and the voices of Howie Mandel as Gizmo and Frank Welker as the big bad gremlin Stripe. The magic (and terror) gets brought to life via the pioneering pre-CGI creature work by Chris Walas, all punctuated by composer extraordinaire Jerry Goldsmith’s incredible score.
