GREMLINS (Theatrical Release USA 1984)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

will continually freshen with age, like other Steven Spielberg Productions, partially due to the little treasures that the film reveals upon re-watching. It’s one of those films that doesn’t get old and always seems new. Special notice goes to Director Joe Dante for delivering a worth watching film.
