    The year was 1984; 2 years after the onset of the "E.T." phenomenon, when a little mogwai stole the hearts of every viewer in the audience. This movie was a staple in my 1990's VHS library. My son (born in 1990) grew up watching this movie endlessly, over and over and over again. He now has a 4 year old of his own, and the tradition continues. The story line promotes discussing "following rules" and "taking responsibility" when the young owner opens the door to chaos and destruction simply because he failed to take appropriate care of his funny, fuzzy, little cherub. There is some violence, albeit comedic for older children and adults, that younger children may not understand without appropriate guidance. In our house it's "bright light - bright light" not "ET phone home". This movie is a family tradition!

    This Joe Dante film is a wonderful and, at times, scary (so much so that it helped lead to the creation of the PG-13 rating) ride. An inventor gives his son, Billy, a rare Christmas gift: a sweet creature known as a Mogwai (who the recipient names Gizmo). However, this pet requires more precise care than most: it shouldn't get wet (as it'll multiply), be exposed to bright light (which hurts them) or sunlight (it kills them), and it shouldn't be fed after midnight. To do the latter will cause them to turn into the title creatures, which are ugly, mean, & have claws(although they are just as mischievous as their Mogwai counterparts). Needless to say, these rules are all broken, which leads to havoc for Billy's town, which he, Gizmo, & Billy's girlfriend Kate must stop.

    They Don't Make 'Em Like This Anymore

    'Gremlins' has always been an underrated film in my opinion, even though it was a relative box office success. The reason being, this was an incredibly difficult and painstaking production that ultimately turned out a very high quality product, especially given the time it was made. While special effects fans are sure to delight the most, just about everyone can appreciate and enjoy this movie which is quite good overall. Unfortunately, as is often the case, the sequel did not live up to the standard set by the original. This is a superb dvd release, featuring a good widescreen transfer and two excellent commentaries, as well as a nice selection of other extras that are sure to please any fan of the film.

    I am using the same review on both Gremlins 1 and 2. minus the typo in the part 2 review. I don't really see leaving a review for these classics. But hey you never know. I am really surprised they have not remade the Gremlin movies. They have remade everything else and than some. I am afraid they might rip it to shreds though. These are classics, and there are a few younger people that know who they are, which was surprising to me. I sat down with my now 5 year old daughter and introduced them to her. She loved them, of course the Gremlins were scary but she couldn't stop laughing at Gizmo. I like 1 more than 2, but 2 is still good. I use the theme as my ringtone.

    You doesn't love the adorable Gizmo. Don't feed him after midnight, don't get him wet, and keep him out of the light. Bright light, Bright light. This is such a good movie. It is such a good movie kids will like it but be careful younger kids will be a little freaked out and scared. It is a great movie for adults too. This is one movie that has stood the test of time. Great price and buy. If you have never seen it or are a fan for pick yours up today you will watch it over and over and get your moneys worth.

    They’re cute. They’re cuddly, and if you don’t show your 10-year old the alternate cover with the menacing hand, it will make him cry. Terrorize your six year old by suggesting that Santa died in a chimney, which is why she didn’t get any presents under the tree (not that it had anything to do with being layed off by Ms. Deagle). Happy happy!

    I bought this to upgrade my Blu-ray collection from the DVD. This is a must have for anyone that loves movies. This has it all, Christmas comedy with a little scary parts and a twist of suspense. This is a cult classic. If for some reason you (or someone you know) has not seen it, you need to buy it now. Turn down the lights, get the popcorn ready and hit play.

    Gremlins is the ultimate classic Christmas horror film for the whole family. Gremlins has never looked or sounded any better. I have loved this film from day one and to finally have it in clear quality is a must for everyone. As a bonus Gremlins is at a great price. So get your copy now and remember to never get it wet and do not feed it after midnight.

    Still Fun and Scary

    "Gremlins" is one of director Joe Dante's classic horror movies, right up there with "The Howling" and "Piranha," but with an over-the-top comedic edge to it that still makes the movie worth watching today. Fun for the whole family? I'd say so. But just scary enough that the little ones might want to leave that night-light on... ;-)

    My nephew left the door open to the computer room. When he came back he said he saw a pack of gremlins on the computer desk, chair all over the computer pushing keys moving the mouse like crazy, laughing and giggling having the greatest time. His nephews, nieces & children of all very small ages.

    First time seeing this movie and wont be my last, it's a great classic 80's movie to watch. Only problem was the piece to hold the DVD in the case was broken but it didn't scratch the disc.

    This is a great, wildly entertaining homage to to B movies, while at the same time functioning as one itself—and a humorous and gruesome masterwork of physical special effects. It's also one of the reasons we now have a PG-13 rating for movies. See it before the inevitable remake forever sullies its memory.

    For years I've been wanting to watch this movie but never did. Found it on sale at Best Buy and decided to get it. It was a great movie even in 2015. I understand why it is considered a classic. Would recommend this movie to not just friends but anyone looking for a classic fun movie to watch.

    Gremlins good fun movie. Not sure if it might be a little scary for small children but mine loved it and weren't afraid at all. I think all in all was not too scary and great movie for girls and boys.. Although I think I enjoyed it just as much as them. LOL And the price was great too.

    I had not seen this movie in over 20 years and decided to buy it for my young kids to be able to watch it. They loved it! The fact that it was on Blu-ray made it that much more enjoyable. At a cost of $5.99, this purchase was it more of a steal For me! Thanks Best Buy!

    I remember going to the theater and seeing Gremlins when it was released, and from that moment this became one of my favorite movies. With this current 4k restoration this movie has not looked as good since it was first released and should be in anybody movie collection.

    The beautiful little town setting of Kingston Falls at Christmas time changes when the Gremlins arrive! Might be a little scary for young kids but the Gremlins are cute at times, and movie has comic situations that break up the destructiveness of the Gremlins!

    We were happy to see this movie on sale and scoop it up for next to nothing. I hate to call this a classic because it makes me feel old. I have watched this movie so many times and never get tired of it. This movie has become one of our Christmas Classics!
