Don’t get it wet. Keep it away from bright light. And no matter what, never feed it after midnight. With these instructions, Galligan takes possession of his cuddly new pet, a Mogwai. But when the creature gets wet, his entire small town is overrun with violent, vicious monsters!

Fresh: The 1984 creature feature in which a Capra-esque idyll is besieged by ravening beasties.-Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph, December 06, 2012
Fresh: What's confusing yet ultimately illuminating is the way his gremlins function as a free-floating metaphor, suggesting at separate junctures everything from teenagers to blacks to various Freudian suppressions.-Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, November 27, 2007
Rotten: The humans are little more than dress-extras for the mechanics.-Variety Staff, Variety, November 27, 2007
Fresh: An unexpectedly successful skit on Spielberg/Disney movie culture -- that itself became something of a franchise.-, Film4, November 27, 2007
Gremlins is probably the most violent and scary film to ever get a PG rating. But it's probably one of the most creative films ever made and that's something lacking from films these days.

I watched this movie tons of times in the 80's (when I was in high school) and recently purchased it for my collection of 80's movies to watch with my daughters who are 16, 12 and 10. They younger two thought it a bit scary (when they turned into gremlins and terrorized people) but overall they liked it. My 16 year old thought it was definitely "80's" and said it was ok (she is into horror films). I love this movie!
