Gremlins is a 1984 American horror comedy film directed by Joe Dante, released by Warner Bros. The film is about a young man who receives a strange creature--called a Mogwai--as a pet, which then spawns other creatures who transform into small, destructive, evil monsters. It was followed by a sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, released in 1990. In contrast to the sequel, the original Gremlins opts for more of a black comedy, which is balanced against a Christmas-time setting. Both films were also the center of large merchandising campaigns.
