Gremlins

directed by Joe Dante

Chris Columbus and Joe Dante bring you madcap comedy fun by way of the Orient in Gremlins, starring Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates and Corey Feldman. Billy (Galligan) gets the present every boy wants for Christmas, a weird looking little creature that talks and sings and looks like the love child of a Welsh Corgi and an Ewok. Pops done good, but when he bought the Mogwai from an Asian curiosity shop, the owner gave him strict instructions. Don’t get it wet, and don’t feed it after midnight. Good reader, you know how it works in movieland, the little guy naturally has to get splashed, then stuff his face. Oops. Now, Billy and little buddy Pete (Corey Feldman) have to battle it out against a hoard of weird looking bigger creatures that look like the love children of a koala and an iguana. Add to the mix is the adorable Phoebe Cates, local fox who may have a thing for Billy. The sequel is fun and even more ridiculous, but the original is a must see.
