Gremlins (1984)

The horror/comedy anti-movie mocking previous alien invasion epics with yuletide-chaos in a snow-dusted idyllic town, clever consumer-culture/Reagan-era fear-mongering critique, wacky B-movie VFX charm, and parabolic season-resonant lesson on the importance of following the rules. 7.9/10.

Plot Synopsis: A gadget salesman is looking for a special gift for his son and finds one at a store in Chinatown. The shopkeeper is reluctant to sell him the Mogwai, but sells it to him with the warning to never expose him to bright light, water, or to feed him after midnight. All of this happens and the result is a gang of gremlins that decide to tear up the town on Christmas Eve.
