Friday Flashback - Gremlins

Friday Flashback is where I look back at the books, films, TV shows and million and one other things that have inspired me over the years in my storytelling and art. As it is the 'season' this week I'm have a look at something a bit Cristmassy: Gremlins!

Gremlins came out back in 1984 and is a 'horror' comedy film directed by Joe Dante and produced by Steven Spielberg. The film is about a young man, Billy, who receives a strange and very cute creature called a Mogwai as a Christmas present. Inadvertently Billy breaks 3 important rules concerning his new pet, which then spawns other creatures who transform into small, destructive, evil 'gremlins' who unleash malevolent and mischievous hell on a small town. In short – Brilliant Christmas fun and a film I watch every year!

Here is the trailer:
