    The concept of Gremlins is so outrageous that it's fun. This dark comedy is one of the best classics of the 80s. The gremlins will be apart of our pop culture until the end of time. If you're looking to get into 80s nostalgia, grremlins is a good movie to start with and a fun one to watch more than once.

    Both cute and frightening. The special effects have aged well, but the acting is slightly off. Still a good movie

    I fell in love with this movie a few years ago when I first watched it. It is very funny and scary. Wouldn't recommend it for little children because it would give them nightmares and also has cursing little kids shouldn't hear. But it is great! Go watch it now!

    You may have to get rid of some of your sanity to enjoy it, but Gremlins is a enjoyably cute and crazy joy ride through the 80s.

    Quite original, over-the-top horror spoof is lively and entertaining, over-abundant with in-joke details, but its black humor is childish most of the time.

    Dante's direction is the star. From the Christmas tree attack to the gremlins caroling to the speeding stair-chair flying out the window, the "horror" sequences are perfectly shot and wonderfully silly, striking the odd tone (mostly) well. I just wish the writing were up to the task; when Cates talks about dad dying in the chimney, it was such a weird jolt. Still enjoyed it, but can't help but feel like I would appreciate it more if I grew up with it. Thanks a LOT, mom.

    'Gremlins' is certainly worth a watch. The cast do an OK job, but it's the Mogwai that pretty much carry it. They're funny and look fantastic, especially given this film came out in the early 1980s - Gizmo is simply adorable. The ending drags out a little, which is my only real criticism.
