Gremlins 2: The New Batch Reviews

February 6, 2018
Only a snob could resist such a generous level of lunacy.

This uninhibited and uproarious monster bash, directed by Joe Dante, is more quick-witted and ironic than the original; it sets forth a savvy, slaphappy agenda before the opening credits and follows it straight through to the end, and even beyond.

An hilarious sequel featuring equal parts creature slapstick for the small fry and satirical barbs for adults.

There's almost enough in-joke ingenuity to justify the total absence of plot.

... not merely the rare sequel that is funnier than the original, it is one of the funniest comedies of its time, a veritable live-action cartoon from Joe Dante at his most unrestrained.

"Gremlins" deserved a much better follow up than "The New Batch."

Campy horror sequel has unrelenting cartoonish violence.

An odd, but rewarding sequel that ups the ante on comedy and effects, and manages to offer a refreshing spoof of the first film.
