Review Funny how we remember old movies as being better than they really are. I first saw Gremlins as a little kid, and I loved the film so much that my parents got me a Gizmo doll for Christmas that year. In fact, even though they don't make Gizmo toys anymore, Gremlins will still please kids today with its juvenile story involving vicious little monsters wreaking havoc on adults...Blending dark comedy with ravenous horror, Gremlins delivers many entertaining moments...For mature viewers looking for more than yesterday's garbage, Gremlins is merely a violent re-imagination of Steven Spielberg's much better E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. Ironically, Spielberg actually served as this movie's executive producer. Despite his influence, however, this movie just isn't as memorable as Spielberg's work. In the end it's just a monster movie for kids.

Review Gremlins is a confrontation between Norman Rockwell's vision of Christmas and Hollywood's vision of the blood-sucking monkeys of voodoo island. It's fun. On the one hand, you have an idyllic American small town, with Burger Kings and Sears stores clustered merrily around the village square, and on the other hand you have a plague of reprehensible little beasties who behave like a rodent road company of Marlon Brando's motorcycle gang in The Wild One...The whole movie is a sly series of send-ups, inspired by movie scenes so basic they reside permanently in our subconscious...Gremlins was hailed as another E.T. It's not. It's in a different tradition...At the level of Pop Moviegoing, it's a sophisticated, witty B movie, in which the monsters are devouring not only the defenseless town, but decades of defenseless cliches.

Quotes
Almar Haflidason, BBC Film Review Devilisly dark humor and mischief romp...
David Ansen, NewsWeek Exhilarating! These Gremlins may be scary, but they're a hoot, not to be missed.
Nick Schager, Nick Schager Film Project Gleefully mischievous and full of dark, magical energy.
Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Movie Guide A tribute the 1950s matinee genre...never eases up on the action or its sense of suspense.
Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com Crazy Joe Dante at his absolute best.
