What Our Critic has to Say?
Gremlins have been able to secure a rating of 7.3/10 in IMDb, so you can guess whether it is worthy of watching or not. Leaving a very few maybe, most of the reviews about this film are positive, and though being quite old, it is considered one of the best films ever produced. The amalgamation of thrill, adventures, fantasy, comedy is highly praise-worthy.
It might revolve around a monster, but the monster is way cuter than being horrific to look at. There is not a single point where you will feel bored. It is a simple family drama that intensifies with the gang of mogwais and becomes way funnier with their arrival.
The cast of Gremlins are as follows, Zach Galligan as Billy Peltzer; Howie Mandel as Gizmo; Phoebe Cates as Kate Beringer; Hoyt Axton as Randall Peltzer; Corey Fedlman in the role of Pete Fountaine; Dick Miller as Murray Futterman; Polly Holliday as Mrs. Deagle; Belinda Balaski as Mrs. Harris; Danny Llewelyn as Daniel Llewelyn; Edward Andrews as Mr. Corben; Judge Reinhold as Gerald Hopkins; Chuck Jones as Mr. Jones; Kenny Davis as Dorry and a lot more.
Christmas is near, so everybody is busy buying gifts for their loved ones, and so is Randall Peltzer. Randall is seen visiting a store to buy presents for his son Billy. Mr. Wing is in no way ready to hand Randall a creature named mogwai but eventually does so but warns Randall not to let mogwai be in sunlight, not to give it food at night and lastly, not to let a single drop of water touch it.
Billy gets happy to get it but fails to follow the rules, which creates havoc, both irritating and funny. It is fun to watch, so you all should start streaming it as soon as possible.
