Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990)

JOE DANTE

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBBB.  USA, 1990Warner Bros., Amblin Entertainment.  Screenplay by , based on characters created by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Those furry little creatures are back, and they’re having even more fun than last time.  returns as the heroic owner of a Mogwai, an adorable little creature that when exposed to water while visiting Galligan at work produces more vicious little Gremlins that run amok in a huge modern skyscraper. Exceptionally well done for a sequel, this film features endless pranks and jokes that will definitely please the young and maybe even amuse the kid in all of us older folks. The cast has a fantastic time playing up the humour, and the Gremlins themselves spare no expense of destruction to please their entire audience. returns as Galligan’s love interest.
