May Is For Monsters!

Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Directed by
Joe Dante

Joe Dante’s ultimate monsterpiece follows his original Christmas creature feature with a doubly fun rollercoaster of late 20th century satire.

“Speaks to the gleeful hell-raising monster in each of us, and it speaks with much more verve, cleverness and good humor than the film on which it is based. Add this to the very short list of sequels that neatly surpass their predecessors.” – The New York Times

“Only a snob could resist such a generous level of lunacy.” – Newsweek

The magical collectibles store that Gizmo calls home has just been destroyed, and the tiny monster finds his way into a newly erected skyscraper. Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) and his bride-to-be, Kate (Phoebe Cates), who have previously dealt with Gremlins run amok, discover that Gizmo and an impish legion of reptilian pals are inhabiting the downtown building. The couple tries to stop the creatures from escaping into New York City, but this new batch of beasts might be uncontrollable.
