Don't get him wet, keep him out of bright light, and never feed him after midnight.
When Billy Peltzer is given a strange but adorable pet named Gizmo for Christmas, he inadvertently breaks the three important rules of caring for a Mogwai, and unleashes a horde of mischievous gremlins on a small town.

Great movie, delighted that I introduced my kids to it, (9 and 10 year old) I wouldn't let much younger kids watch but your choice!

Watched this years ago, definitely not for small kids!

This film is so fun. Fucked-up fun. I never understood why it was a 15 until now. And I remembered gremlins wielding chainsaws and being blended in food processors. If the second act doesn't appeal to you in all it's hyped up, maniacal horror fun, Gizmo will definitely melt your heart. I want a Mogwai so bad.
