Revealing mistake: When the cops watch the guy in the Santa costume being attacked their brakes are cut under the car but a few moments later when they drive off down the street they do apply the brakes to stop from the lights exploding above and the brakes do work.

Suggested correction: A cut brake line would not stop the brakes from working instantly. It would take a few pumps of the brakes for fluid to expel. So the brakes would work for a little while.

Visible crew/equipment: In the classroom a Gremlin takes an apple, then eats it behind a desk. The Gremlin then throws it from behind the desk. Look closely and you will see the apple is actually thrown by a human hand, not a Gremlin hand. (00:48:00)

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".
