On this very special holiday edition of the Cult Film Club, hosts Shawn, Paxton and Jaime finally tackle the most awesome genre Christmas film of all time, Gremlins. Released in 1984 and directed by Joe Dante, this film is the perfect mash-up of family film and gross out horror fun. Starring Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates, the flick centers on a strange creature called a mogwai that is presented as a Christmas gift to Billy Peltzer by his inventor father. Before the audience knows what to make of the mogwai Gizmo, he multiplies and the litter of new critters soon morph into an army of tiny murderous Gremlins. Can Billy and his girlfriend Kate save the town of Kingston Falls before the Gremlins destroy it?
