Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Gremlins is a whee of a film (if you don't mind the occasional gross-out) from producer Steven Spielberg, writer Chris Columbus, and director Joe Dante. Zach Galligan is the young man whose inventor father (Hoyt Axton) gives him an odd Christmas present: a tiny, furry creature that comes with a set of rules: don't get him wet, don't feed him after midnight, and keep him away from direct sunlight. But Galligan breaks the first rule and the damp little critter pops out a dozen little offspring. Then the offspring break the second rule and, overnight, turn from cute furry guys to malevolent scaly guys with world domination on their mind. The only way to stop them: rule three. But it's an anxious (and extremely funny) battle to make it to daylight--and the bad gremlins find ways to multiply over and over. Great special effects and a gruesome sense of humor make this a wild (if occasionally dark and scary) ride. --Marshall Fine

Product Description

A man buys a Mogwai as a Christmas present for his son. The young boy is told to keep the pet away from water, out of the light and never to feed it after midnight. Inadvertently, the creature is dampened and almost instantly, produces half a dozen furry replicas of itself --which continue to multiply and turn the small town upside-down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mischief and Mayhem in a Cuddly, Furry Package July 12 2004
By CreepyT
Format:DVD
An inventor with a penchant for oddities that don't work (Hoyt Axton), while selling his wares in a sketchy section of Chinatown, comes across a young boy who promises to show him some wonderful things within his grandfather's shop. Once inside he does indeed find himself amongst the odd and wonderful. He becomes drawn to the singing of a cute furry little creature known as a Mogwai, and informs the shopkeeper that he simply must have the Mogwai, as he's in dire need of a Christmas present for his son. The shopkeeper hesitates, and finally says no to the inventor, Randall Peltzer, as with the Mogwai "comes great responsibility." Distraught, Mr. Peltzer turns to leave. However, knowing that his family needs the money, the young boy offers to help him out by selling him the Mogwai behind his grandfather's back. The adorable fuzzy little creature comes with three rules. He doesn't like bright lights, he can't get wet, and he can't be fed after midnight.
Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) is elated upon opening his present. He immediately becomes friends with the Mogwai, Gizmo, and makes sure he abides by all the aforementioned rules. When a neighborhood boy comes by to deliver a Christmas tree, he doesn't exercise quite as much caution and accidentally spills water on the Mogwai. This unveils a whole new trait for Gizmo, and a whole new world for Billy. The Peltzer family soon discovers just how much responsibility is necessary for a creature of this caliber, as does the rest of the town they live in. Bad things may come in cute, cuddly, furry little packages.
I rate the movie as five stars, and the DVD as three, hence the average of four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gremlins (1984) June 2 2004
Format:DVD
Director: Joe Dante
Cast: Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, Hoyt Axton, Frances Lee McClain, Polly Holliday, Glynn Turman, Dick Miller, Keye Luke, Scott Brady.
Running Time: 106 minutes.
Rated PG for non-PG worthy-violence and some language; keep in mind that the MPAA Rating System created the PG-13 rating in 1985 largely due to this film and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".
"Gremlins" gets its title from the nickname given during World-War II to mysterious malfunctions that took place on American fighter planes. No one could explain some of the break downs, so they determined that evil little monsters created by Japan were the culprits. The 1984 film which is directed by Joe Dante ("Piranha"), written by Chris Columbus ("Home Alone") and executively created by the one-and-only Steven Spielberg ("E.T.", "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"), inducing much media acclaim and criticism alike. It is an extremely violent film for the rating and especially dark, but overall is a touching, terrifying story that works on all levels and became one of the most popular formula-producing horror films of the entire decade.
A quirky inventor (Hoyt Axton) brings home a mysterious furry creature as a Christmas present for his son (played very well by newcomer Zach Galligan), not knowing the horrors that the purchase would later produce. The furball is named Gizmo, which looks like a cross between a Kuala bear and a Cabbage-patch kid, is not only unique in appearance-it multiplies when exposed to water, hates the sight of light, and creates horrific, flesh-eating creatures when it is given food after the clock strikes midnight.

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD REVIEW May 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Warners has previously issued GREMLINS on DVD twice in different packaging. Both releases featured the same contents, including a very lacking transfer and soundtrack. With the release of the new GREMLINS Special Edition DVD, fans are finally rewarded with a nice DVD.
A few nitpicks to start, however. First, the packaging on this release is too similar to the reissue DVD cover. This may prove confusing to consumers, as the old discs are still out there on shelves. The only difference (and hopefully this will be enough) is that the keyart is framed by four red streaks, and the disc is decreed a "special edition" below the title. The spine of the disc, besides the part number (which means nothing to the average consumer) is exactly the same.
On to the second gripe: the DVD menus. These menus are simply hideous. I know older titles need to be very budget conscious, but the menus on the disc are an altered reproduction of the original DVD's menus, which back in 1997 were too, simply hideous. Jerry Goldsmith's "Gremlins' Rag" has been added on the soundtrack of the menus for a little kick, but wouldn't an animated menu with gremlins wreaking havoc on the screen be a blast? Even if the budget wouldn't support this idea, a redesign for the new disc of still menus would have even been welcomed.
PICTURE
The video is from a brand new transfer created especially for this special edition DVD. While it is noticeably better than the original DVD, the picture is still not state-of-the-art, but fairly forgivable considering the film's age. GREMLINS is a very dark film visually, with a majority of its scenes taking place at night or in dark locations (remember, them critters hate light...).

4.0 out of 5 stars Gremlins
First half of movie I'd give it a "G" rating. Second half turns into some kind of horror flick and I'd give it an "R" rating. Still, it's one of my favorite 80s films. Read more
