Gleefully trashing the Christmas movie cliché, Joe Dante’s gruesome horror-comedy fuelled an entire generation of children’s nightmares in the ‘80s. Hapless teen Billy is given the gift of a lifetime when his dad gives him a mysterious creature known as a Mogwai for Christmas. Billy names him Gizmo, and with his big brown eyes and fluffy ears, he appears to be every kid’s dream pet. But the Mogwai comes with a strict set of rules - no water, no food after midnight and no bright lights. When Billy inadvertently violates the first two rules, the unimaginable happens - Gizmo spawns a legion of evil reptilian monsters who unleash hell on the small town of Kingston Falls. Offbeat, darkly funny and one of the most inventive monster movies of the past 30 years, Gremlins is guaranteed to have you laughing and screaming throughout.
