This film is a bit schizophrenic with elements of horror, comedy,
and Christmas, all blended per kitchen mixer into a strange little tale. Gizmo the mogwai, is just…too cute and his malevolent first cousins, the gremlins, are just…not. It’s A Wonderful Life meets Halloween!
Favorite scene: gremlins watching Snow White in the movie theater
Rated PG/106 minutes (note: at the time the movie was released, PG-13 was not yet a category but following the releases of Gremlins & Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, PG-13 was added as a middle-ground between PG and R. If the film were released today it would be rated PG-13, may not be appropriate for younger family members.)
