Don't feed them after midnight!

Gremlins is a strange fantasy film from Roger Corman protégé Joe Dante. He creates a film that pays homage to the science-fiction films of the fifties. The film was so successful, it spawned a line of merchandise, a couple of video games and a highly successful sequel.

A middle aged inventor (Hoyt Axton) is searching for a perfect Christmas present for his son. One day he comes across an Asian curio shop. He falls for the store owner's unique pet. After an unsuccessful business deal with the shop's owner (Keye Luke) his young assistant sells the pet to him. Before parting he tells him the rules of the "Mogwai". Never get him wet, keep him out of light and NEVER feed him after midnight. Delighted, he takes the pet home. His kid (Zach Galligan) falls in love with his new pet. But being a stupid kid, following set rules is not as easy as it seems. Co-stars Phoebe Cates (wow) and Roger Corman stock player Dick Miller.

A fun film for all ages. But keep the real young ones away because several scenes will scare them silly. Followed by an equally as entertaining sequel
