Gremlins ★★★½

Gratuitously violent and wildly entertaining; it almost feels like an anti-ET at points, taking turns between the chaotic insanity of the Gremlins and taking the piss out of suburbia. The moral is a bit hammy and the humans a bit dull, but the Gremlins are so fun to watch that it doesn't really matter.

Pro tip: if a nasty old lady ever threatens to kill your dog, call the police on her.
