The 1984 classic Gremlins returns to the big screen with a stunning 4K Restoration.
“Don’t expose him to bright light. Don’t ever get him wet. And don’t ever, ever feed him after midnight.”
This comic Joe Dante effort is set in a Norman Rockwell-esque small town at Christmastime. Seeking a unique gift for his son an erstwhile inventor (Hoyt Axton) purchases a cute, fuzzy little “Mogwai” from a Chinatown shopkeeper’s (Keye Luke) grandson (John Louie), who dispenses the above-mentioned warning before closing the deal.
Meanwhile, young bank clerk Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) must suffer Mrs. Deagle (Polly Holliday) and priggish Gerald (Judge Reinhold) while pursuing his romance with Kate (Phoebe Cates). These and a variety of other plot strands are tied together when the lovable mogwai (named Gizmo) is exposed to bright light and gotten wet.
In short order, the town is invaded by nasty, predatory Gremlins, who lay waste to everything in sight as Billy and Kate try to contain the destruction. A perfect family Christmas…
