"A delightfully offbeat reminder of how inventive and witty blockbusters seemed when you were a kid."

— Caroline Westbrook, Empire

"A wildly original roller-coaster ride of hilarious mischief."

— Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine

"Brilliantly potent social critique of Reagan-era fear-mongering and consumerism."

— Glenn Heath Jr., Little White Lies

"At the level of Serious Film Criticism, it's a meditation on the myths in our movies: Christmas, families, monsters, retail stores, movies, boogeymen. At the level of Pop Moviegoing, it's a sophisticated, witty B movie."

— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"In many ways, though, Gremlins is ingenious. Gizmo yanks at your heartstrings with both furry fists, then sits out a few scenes while suspense builds, then plunges back with more vim than ever. The small-town setting, right out of a gushy Frank Capra movie, manages to be timeless, nostalgic, and slightly ridiculous all at once."
