Joe Dante United States, 1984

anarresti's rating of the film Gremlins

There was never a movie like this, and never again. Bold enough to blend fantasy, horror and sci-fi in a children story. Like a good classic children story is meant to be. With monsters and fun. (Oh, I remember, Neil Gaiman does it so well, too! Oh, and he was the one that said that "fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.")
