Gremlins Movie Breakdown

Gremlins Movie Breakdown

The Gremlins movie is the classic horror comedy from Joe Dante. It follows Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) who is given a mogwai named Gizmo as a Christmas present from his hustler father Rand Peltzer (Hoyt Axton)

“Keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight. It’ll kill him”

Rules for an exotic creature that is at a high risk of developing scurvy

Gremlins is funny and violent and and just all around fantastic. I remember watching this as a kid and even then wondering why I was allowed to watch it. Even as an adult there were several times that I was just like “daaaamn”. It holds up insanely well and is a great addition to your Christmas movie list.
