Gremlins 2: The New Batch
Those mischievous wee devils are back to cause havoc


submit to reddit

Plot
Fluffy fun-ball Gizmo had been incarcerated in a genetics lab, conveniently situated in the same building where Billy and Kate, our heroes from the first outing, are working in New York. Gizmo gets wet, gremlins abound, and Billy and Katie have to prevent them escaping from the building at nightfall.


Verdict
You can really tell that the people making this film had a lot of fun doing it. The plot is thinner than a compressed wafer, but who cares? It's fun and cheap laughs all the way, and that ain't no crime.
