The Gremlins Collection
Double bill of American comedy horrors directed by Joe Dante.
In 'Gremlins' (1984) an eccentric inventor brings an unusual Christmas gift home for his son Billy (Zach Galligan): the cute and friendly little Mogwai, Gizmo (voice of Howie Mandel), with strict advice never to expose it to bright light, get it wet or feed it after midnight.
But one night when a glass of water is accidentally spilled over little Gizmo, Billy soon finds out why he was told to follow this advice as Gizmo begins to convulse, producing five new Mogwai.
As Billy and his science teacher, Mr Hanson (Glynn Turman), seek to find out more about the creatures, the town is overrun by a new breed of Mogwai - the 'Gremlins' - menacing little reptilian creatures that are far from friendly.
In the sequel 'Gremlins 2 - The New Batch' (1990) Gizmo is in danger of dissection by the fiendish Dr Catheter (Christopher Lee), who works at Clamp Enterprises for eccentric billionaire Daniel Clamp (John Glover).
On his escape, he gets a dousing and before long the uncontrollable Gremlins, this time in mutated form, are back and wreaking havoc in the Manhattan offices of Clamp Enterprises.
