Described as Joe Dante's magnum opus in his career of directing black comedy, Gremlins, like Die Hard is not something people would really indetify as a Christmas film due to the film's excessive violence and the infamous Santa speech delivered by a suprisingly good Phoebe Cates.
However the incredible puppetry, the manic setpieces involving Gremlin violence that dominate the second act is gleeful to witness and the impressive use of lighting and cinematography when creating a Christmas environment, makes Gremlins essential holiday viewing...
Mrs. Deagle is the town cunt. She's so rude and evil.
Great special effects, reminds me a lot of Alien and the eggs.
The cute chick, Phoebe Cates, is one dark bitch. Telling all these dark stories about her father and talking about depression on Christmas.
CONS: Film is a bit too long.
A comedy classic!
A horror classic!
An '80s classic!
