When Billy Peltzer is given a strange but adorable Mogawi pet named Gizmo for Christmas, he inadvertently breaks the three important rules of caring for these creatures, and unleashes a horde of mischievous gremlins on his small town. “In Hollywood, the forces of truth, justice, family and America have always battled with the viewing public’s unquenchable lust for mayhem. Few movies have walked that tightrope as skilfully or subversively as 1984’s Gremlins, in which director Joe Dante tries to have his Christmas cake and puke all over it too” (Time Out).
