|The rules were so simple|
There isn't much more to be said about the movie, it's horror classic. It was one of the few horror movies that was a hit from day one. There was no slowly building it's audience like a lot of movies.
It's been a while since I've watched this so I thought I would share a couple of things I noticed.
1. Why don't the Gremlins multiply when they walk on the snow, it's wet after all.
2. Why is Zach Galligan's character the only one with a job in the family? I know dad is supposed to be an inventor but couldn't he work a regular job too? Their financial situation doesn't seem that great, yet the mom doesn't work either. Seems a shame to put all the burden on the son.

4. For an additional commentary go to: The Movie Crypt Adam Green, Joe Lynch and Zach Galligan do one that has some great info in it.
Merry Christmas, and always follow the rules when given a mystical creature.
