I can’t even begin to tell you how much I adored the Gremlins movies when I was growing up. I absolutely adored them and would take my little stuffed animal Gizmo with me pretty much anywhere I went. However, since the 1990 Joe Dante-directed sequel there haven’t been any new adventures with our favorite little Mogwai or the Gremlins themselves. As an adult, I don’t know how I’d react to a third film but I have a feeling that it’d please my inner child to no end.
The folk over at Nerdist decided to take this Halloween and do a throwback trailer that spoofs Gremlins and posits a ridiculous(ly awesome) plot for a third entry. Starring Zach Galligan, from the original films, as well as Barbara Crampton (Beyond The Gates, Re-Animator), Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys, Friday the 13th), Playboy model Lindsey Pelas, and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, The Devil’s Rejects), the faux trailer is a delightful spoof of 80’s sci-fi and B-horror visuals and aesthetics.
