Corrected entry: When the gremlins are attacking Billy's mom in the kitchen, the kitchen is well lit with a window that allows sunlight into the room. If bright light kills gremlins, wouldn't they die when they enter the kitchen?

Correction: There are only killed by contact with direct sunlight, as far as I can see there is no direct sunlight on the Gremlins in this scene. Also, they are only afraid of bright lights, it does not kill them, only sunlight can do that.

Corrected entry: In the first shot of the hi-tech phone box, behind it on the right is the time machine from the film The Time Machine. There are people standing around it, while it starts to spin. In the next shot of it, it is gone.

Correction: If you look, you can see smoke rising and the judges of the invention convention looking around for it. It's just a background gag implying that the time machine worked.

Visible crew/equipment: When a gremlin attacks the Mum from a Christmas tree, and the tree falls on top of her, you can clearly see a member of the crew with eyeglasses, wearing a red shirt, standing behind the tree pushing it forward on top of her. (00:54:30)

Randall Peltzer: Well, that's the story. So if your air conditioner goes on the fritz. Or your washing machine blows up. Or your video recorder conks out; before you call the repairman, turn on all the lights, check all the closets and cupboards, look under all the beds. Cause you never can tell. There just might be a gremlin in your house.
