Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 07/12/1990
"...Devilishly imaginable..."
New York Times - 06/15/1990
"...GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH speaks to the gleeful hell-raising monster in each of us, and it speaks with...verve, cleverness and good humor..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/15/1990
"...It's an infernally funny mass entertainment....GREMLINS 2 is better than the original....Dante is a filmmaker with dash, spirit and humor..."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2006
"[A] riotous parade of slapstick sadism, self-reflexive gags and more movie parodies than a Mad magazine special..."
Total Film - 05/01/2007
3 stars out of 5 -- "Matching the original gag for gag -- in both senses of the word..."
Ultimate DVD - 05/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his splendid sequel prioritizes comedy....Full of inspired ideas..."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/11/2012
"As the gremlins buzz-saw through Manhattan, Dante gooses the action with a barrage of pop culture in-jokes..." -- Grade: B+

Product Description:

Just when they thought they were safe, young sweethearts Billy (Zach Galligan) and Kate (Phoebe Cates) from Joe Dante's GREMLINS have moved on to the Big Apple, landed jobs in a high-tech office park, and have met up with Gizmo once again. When a series of accidents creates a whole new generation of Gremlins, the three pals must use everything they know to prevent another comic catastrophe. The monsters wreck havoc at Clamp Industries, the "smart building" where Billy and Kathy work, creating madness and mayhem for the Donald Trump-like owner, Daniel Clamp (John Glover), who sees the invasion as yet another opportunity for media attention. But, when the monsters invade "Splice of Life," the top-secret genetics laboratory housed at Clamp Industries, the Gremlins develop new genetically altered powers that make them even harder to destroy. This highly inventive sequel to GREMLINS, successfully combines wicked horror and dark humor in an outrageous and eerily realistic post modern setting.

Production Notes:

  • Cameo appearances by screenwriter, Charlie Haas, as Casper; composer Jerry Goldsmith as a customer at the frozen yogurt counter; and real-life movie critic Leonard Maltin, as himself (on the cable access show "Movie Police", he is giving the original GREMLINS a bad review).
  • Cameo appearance by SNL's Julia Sweeney as the receptionist at "Splice of Life."
    Two different versions of the film were made, one for theatrical release and one for video. In the theatrical version the film appears to begin to burn, in the video release the segment simulates a broken VCR.
