Top Critics’ Reviews
Rotten: Gremlins is far more interested in showing off its knowledge of movie lore and making random jokes than in providing consistent entertainment.
Fresh: A wildly original roller-coaster ride of hilarious mischief.
Fresh: A horror-comedy about cute little Christmas toy/pets who turn into murderous monsters wreaking havoc on a Norman Rockwellian town.
Fresh: At the level of Serious Film Criticism, it’s a meditation on the myths in our movies: Christmas, families, monsters, retail stores, movies, boogeymen. At the level of Pop Moviegoing, it’s a sophisticated, witty B movie.
