If there was one great gift the 80s gave us, it was the gift of the B-flick, horror movie. Malicious villains like Freddy Krueger and Jason were born in Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. Both of these films kept children awake at night with nightmares of gruesome deaths. Parents regretted not heeding the “R” rating that drove those children into their beds. I still remember my dad waking up with bruises left from me kicking him in the back. Shame on him for allowing this five-year old kid to watch Freddy eviscerate everyone on Elm Street. The Gremlins was one movie that received acclaim during this era of low-budget horror. The story revolved around a young boy who received a pet Mogwai, named Gizmo, as a gift.

Hit up your local video store or Amazon and snag these bad boys now! We’re going to revisit both Gremlins movies in high definition and have a review for you on both discs by the weekend. Should give us enough time to devour all the extras. And God, it’s been a while since I’ve seen these so I’d like to savor the experience! More on the new Gremlins Blu-Ray releases shortly!
“Gremlins” was written by Chris Columbus, directed by Joe Dante and produced by Steven Spielberg and stars Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, Hoyt Axton, Polly Holliday, Frances Lee McCain, Dick Miller and Corey Feldman.

Directed by Joe Dante.
A small town is invaded by a gang of destructive creatures at Christmas.
William Shatner whispers the above in his uniquely staccato way during The Nightmare at 20,000 Feet, arguably the most famous of Twilight Zone episodes. Boy, he sure looked like Orson Welles when he was younger.
He’s accompanied by melodramatic music and filmed in a distressed close-up, but the immense terror of the situation blinds you to its exaggerated style. Shatner, playing a man recently recovered from a nervous breakdown, keeps seeing a figure on the wing of his plane. »
