‘Gremlin’ Trailer Introduces a Very Unique Monster Movie Premise

This sure isn’t Gizmo.

We’re always on the hunt for new monster movies to share with you guys, and this upcoming one from Uncork’d Entertainment sure caught our attention. We don’t yet have a release date but Gremlin is headed our way at some point this year, and it centers on a monster that’s housed inside of a mysterious box. Sort of like It Follows, if the monster isn’t passed along to someone before a clock on the box runs out, the monster will be set free and wreak the kind of havoc that only monsters can. It starts out small, but seems to grow bigger and bigger over time.

The full plot is as follows…

A man receives a mysterious box containing a terrible secret, a creature that will kill everyone else in his family unless he passes it on to someone he loves to continue its never-ending circulation. He can’t destroy it. He can’t escape it. He can only give it to someone he loves before it’s too late.

Sounds cool, right? Check out the trailer below!

Ryan Bellgardt (Army of Frankensteins) directed this one.

The creature feature’s cast includes Adam Hampton, Kristy K. Boone, Catcher Stair, Katie Burgess, Mike Waugh, and Caleb Milby.

    I don’t want t jump the gun here but…wtf is this?

    I am not even a huge Gremlins fan (I like the movies, just not crazy about them) but this might as well have been it’s own movie with it’s own title/name. It’s like they took everything out of what made the original so lovable and fun with this new creature.

    I just don’t see the point lol

    • NoGutzNoGory

      You jumped it. This has nothing to do with Gremlins…… did you even read the article above?

      • Blade4693

        Yeah I read it and I don’t see anything that says it is separate. I assumed that to make a movie with that title is had to be connected, but the above poster explained why this is able to happen.

        Trust me I am glad I am wrong and this is it’s own thing,

        • Joe Anthony Doncell

          Buddy, just Google the definition of gremlin. It’s a mythical creature that goes back waaaay before the 80’s movie or even the 70’s Looney Toons character.

          • Blade4693

            Yep I did after the guy above mentioned it. I had no idea it was a mythical creature I thought it was an original term by the gremlins movie lol

    • Saturn

      Nowt to do with Gremlins – it’s a separate, totally unrelated, entity in and of itself.
      You have to remember that the movies didn’t invent the name Gremlins – so if someone wants to make a movie called Gremlin,The Gremlins, or The Kremlin Vs Gremlins then so be it.

    This looks like an updated version of the 1960s Outer Limits episode, “Don’t Open til Doomsday,” one of the best episodes. Trailer looks great, monster looks too much like the Cloverfield monster though.

    • J.Ryall

      it’s a good concept for an episode or short,but a full lenght movie,idk.

      • Saturn

        I like the look of it and will definitely check it out. hopefully it will deliver.

        • J.Ryall

          and I hope you’re right brotha

  • Yakushiji Tenzen

    lol that thing almost looks exactly like the one from Cloverfield.

  • Mikey Mako Munster

    Come on!!!! use some imagination, this is the 97% Cloverfield Monster.

    • Jeff Eastwood

      Well, I suppose if you *are* going to copy something, at least copy from the best =^)

  • zombie84_41

    I heard of this a while back thought it got canned LOL I’ll watch it on netflix though.

  • Grimphantom

    What the hell is this? How’s that…..thing called a gremlin? Even the Looney Tunes gremlin makes more sense than this! How much you bet that the giant thing is the ending of the movie…..

    • Ima Badlady

      Don’t be a hater.

      • Grimphantom

        “When the movie is released”
        Ima Badlady: Ok, i hate it too

        But seriously i can’t really see this movie with that name, why Gremlin? XD

  • Weresmurf

    Ok so we have…

    It Follows + Hellraiser + Cloverfield?

    Oh dear. Well, I’ll check it out but that cgi is 1990s level bad.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    I’ll stream this someday

  • Chromwagner

    Straight-to-DVD kinda garbage, this is.

  • alan70

    This looks like a good time. Something fun to throw in on a Saturday night.

  • I’m sure that film is garbage, however the CGI looks slightly better than another “very very LOW budget films”.

  • Halloween_Vic

    Holy shit this actually looks like a fun/entertaining flick. Definitely will check this out.

  • Randy Moses

    May be entertaining, but I think the title will actually turn a few people off to the movie.

  • DarkBree

    The only thing I’m thinking right now is: couldn’t they come up with another name?

  • Meisha’s Taint

    So…………………………………………………………………how is this a gremlin?

  • marklola12 .

    haha looks shit, the cgi cop car crashing phaha looks like that app you can get on your phone

    poster looks like aci-fi channel garbage at best so is the acting

    • gabriel

      wha? you actually watched the trailer? You got some kind of nerve.

  • Keyser Soze

    Terrible AND potentially copyright infringing! Awesome!

    • Seal Clubber

      Probably terrible … but definitely not copyright infringing. Gremlins are a old cultural myth …. can’t be copyrighted.

  • Honest

    See, there are jobs for shitty 3D compositors and actors in this era of opportunity outside of Resident Evil films. “I have to get it out of this house before it forces every one of us to take acting classes!”

  • witchypoo

    I hate the sound effects and the acting is super awkward for a feature-length film.

    But all of that would be forgivable if it weren’t for the over-reliance on CGI. (Bad CGI at that!) Monster movies and practical effects go together like PB&J. Why fight it?

  • disqus_k39rnaVe8B

    ahhh the good all days when the monster was revealed in the end of the movie. Now they are in the poster…
