8. 7/10. A creative horror movie of the 80's that mustn't be overlooked. I enjoyed its premise as these little scary creatures, the Gremlins, wreaked havoc on this small town which looked like a blend of Mayberry and Bedford Falls. If anything, I found it the kind of horror movie that could do humor while not getting too over the top. Its sequel, Gremlins 2:The New Batch, went slightly the opposite way, nothing wrong with that, because it worked. Here though, the small town isolation with being invaded by these little monsters does well and plays with the audience's minds superbly.

i like the movie

Revealing mistake: When the professor is trying to find the gremlin, he is in the room with the movie playing. The projector that is playing the movie is actually moving backwards. (00:44:35 - 00:47:35)

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.

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".
