Plot summary

(13 votes)

An elderly man buys a strange and unusual furry creature for his son. All the boy has to do is follow three simple rules: keep it away from bright light, don't get it wet, and, most important, no matter how much it begs, don't feed it after midnight. When the boy makes a few errors the creature accidently spawns a horde of nasty and unfriendly offspring who wreak havoc and enjoy doing it.

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.

Trivia: When Billy's mom takes the picture of Gizmo at the beginning, Gizmo becomes frightened and runs over to Mr. Peltzer. When the scene is slowed, you can see the puppeteer's hand underneath while operating the Gizmo doll. Not a mistake as needs slo-mo, but worth a look. (00:19:10)

More trivia for Gremlins

Question: Why does the video cover say "We're back"? It's the first film.

Answer: When the movie was originally released, the art work simply said "We're Here." After it's initially theatrical run, they waited a while and then re-released it and changed the "We're Here" to "We're Back"

Answer: I have the VHS from the 80's. 100% it says we're back.

Answer: I just looked at the cover on cdcovers.cc and it actually says "We're Here", not "We're Back". On Gremlins 2 - The New Batch it says "Here they grow again".
