Gremlins ★★★★½

Reasons to love Gremlins:

An absolutely demented "kids" movie.

Mischief at its absolute finest.

Perfect blend of horror and comedy.

Amazing Christmas atmosphere.

Phoebe Cates' Santa Claus story!!! One of the most bizarre scenes in a movie I've ever seen, let alone in a movie like this!

Hilarious animatronics/no CGI!

Billy's dad's inventions -especially the smokeless ashtray!

The kitchen sequence - especially the microwave.

All the monster movie in-jokes.

Any time the Gremlins laugh.

Stripe's death.

Overflowing with nostalgia!

A quintessential 80s movie.

Helped usher in the PG-13 rating.

The disappearing time machine gag.

Endlessly rewatchable.
