Rating: 3/4 -- There is satire here: a sense of silly but thoughtful consideration on the Christmas traditions and how easily all the relatable facades crumble as a consequence of simple illusions being so easily shattered. Full Review
A wildly original roller-coaster ride of hilarious mischief. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Brilliantly potent social critique of Reagan-era fear-mongering and consumerism.
Little White Lies
Rating: 4/5 -- Benefits from one of the most underappreciated musical scores of the 1980s. Full Review
4 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's a treat for movie buffs, Dante peppering it with filmmaker cameos, cartoonish slapstick and satirical swipes at Hollywood classics from yesteryear.
5 stars out of 5 -- Dante’s critters-run-amok-in-snowbound-Spielberg-suburbia satire takes the Christmas milieu of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and splatters it with cartoony carnage, anarchic comedy and a stripe of gleeful subversion a mile wide.
Dante scored his biggest hit with the slyly subversive GREMLINS...
Sight and Sound
Joe Dante's hilariously funny, wickedly scary film is about a loveable, furry little Christmas gift that multiplies into many little Christmas gifts, with savage consequences. Rand Peltzer (Hoyt Axton) is an inventor who hasn't successfully invented anything. But this Christmas he's bringing his family something special--a small, cuddly creature known as a mogwai. The little fella comes with three crucial instructions. He's not to be fed after midnight, he's not to get any direct light and he should never be given so much as a drop of water. If Rand and his son Billy (Zach Galligan) can adhere to these rules they can avoid the otherwise tragic consequences. Unfortunately, the rules are harder to stick to than it seems, and suddenly Billy finds himself with far too many "pets," all with big appetites. It's up to Billy and his girlfriend (Phoebe Cates) to stop the mischievous gremlins before they ruin Christmas for the residents of rural Kingston Falls. GREMLINS features a delightful combination of horror and humor that introduced Gizmo and his wild relatives to an entire generation of young fans.
