Absolutely a CLASSIC! I loved "Gremlins" as a child, and I watched this with my 11 year old nephew(his first time seeing this one) and still loved it as an adult. Everything still holds up today, including the special effects. If this movie was made today it would have been ruined by CGI. I love that it was all done with puppets. This is what a true horror is supposed to do. I grew up with allthe popular slashers like, Michael Myers, Jason, and Freddy Krueger, and nothing terrified me more than the gremlins did. This was the first movie that made me scared to go to sleep but I wanted to watch it over and over. Good job, movie! I don't know if Zach Galligan ever did anything after this franchise, or Phoebe Cates but, both were functional and Phoebe Cates was one of my first crushes in the 80s. This is a terrific time, horror mixed with the right amount of comedy. People of all generations will appreciate "Gremlins".
