Teenager #ZachGalligan receives an unusual #Christmas gift from his father (#HoytAxton): a cute little furry creature called a "#mogwai." There are three warnings associated with caring for the creature: never get it wet, never let it into the sunlight, and never feed it after midnight, no matter how much it whines. Everyone marvels at the unusual little mogwai; but, of course, the rules are soon broken, and the cute creature gives birth to dozens of little mogwais, which then evolve into #gremlins--totally repugnant, evil, lizardlike creatures that set about destroying the entire town. Yes, #JoeDante gleefully trashes cliches and sentimental Capra-esque notions, but one should not forget this movie was given a "PG" rating and cynically aimed to draw an audience of small children who would no doubt be terrorized by this myth-shattering film. The justifiable furor over this film and INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM forced the MPAA to create the "PG-13" rating.

The original 1984 classic was directed by Joe Dante from a script by Chris Columbus. The film starred Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, and Dick Miller.
“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.” So get over to our Twitter page and make sure you retweet Zach's post so the world stands a chance at more Mogwai Mayhem!
