In search of the perfect Christmas present for his son, Billy's dad picks up a 'Mogwai' from a mysterious vender. But this sweet furry pet comes with a warning: should its owner break the three golden rules, all hell will break loose.

When Billy's adorable new friend Gizmo spawns some terrifying offspring, his suburban town of Kingston Falls falls under siege.

Can he save Christmas from the Gremlins?

One by one the rules are duly broken, and pandemonium quickly ensues. A horde of gleeful gremlins rampage across town, wrecking not just Billy’s home but also the high school, bank and local bar, shooting, drinking and breakdancing their way to a final showdown on Christmas morning.

The slapstick horror is both hilarious and gory, the puppetry and special effects are true ’80s-style over-the-top fun, the performances are charming – in short, GREMLINS remains as fresh, funny and slyly subversive as ever.
