Synopsis:
Anyone who lived through the '80's experienced the magic of 'Gremlins'. For everyone else, now is the time to see one of the decade's defining movies, a wildly original blend of comedy and horror. When Billy (Zach Galligan) receives an adorable, mysterious pet named Gizmo for Christmas, he's given three rules for its care. Inadvertently, he breaks the rules, and a resulting army of duplicate furballs wreaks havoc throughout the town...

A retro, schlocky but charmingly silly classic 80's film - Gremlins review by TB

Spoiler Alert
29/06/2023

Another classic 80's film remastered in 4K. Never seen this before but heard a lot about it.

There is lots to like here, including a great protagonist in Billy Peltzer and suitably nasty villains. The puppetry is also great.

However, it is also very schlocky and too long, plus around halfway through, it just loses its way. With some better editing and shaving off between 10-20 minutes of length, it could have been a brilliant classic. But still a decent watch and trip down memory lane.
