Movies' Most Dangerous Buildings | Gremlins 2 (1990)
Gremlins 2 (1990)

Address: The Clamp Centre, 101 Park Avenue, New York

The Upside A technological marvel, this entire building is fully automated and can run for hours or days without human assistance. Built by financial whizz Daniel Clamp, it houses his corporate headquarters as well as TV studios, restaurants, research laboratories and much, much more. Staffed by a dedicated team and overseen by the effusive Clamp himself, the only way is up for this skyscraper! It would take a heck of a lot of gremlins to foul up this system!

The Downside Contains a heck of a lot of gremlins. Some of whom have mutated following the application of certain laboratory-developed serums. D'oh! And the building’s locked down so if you’re not already out, you’re stuck!

Survival techniques Well, first you should aim to befriend a mogwai who’s not going to take it any more. Then, try to electrocute the lot of the green slimy bastards while they’re distracted by a musical number.

Chances of survival? Fairly high – although if, like Robert Picardo (pictured), you end up locked in a bathroom with Girl Gremlin, you could wish you were dead.

How about that place from Resident Evil, what's it called, The Hive? There's zombies (naturally) and there's that room with the lasers that slice you up. Might count as dangerous, no? More
