There are only three rules to abide when owning a Mogwai: keep them away from bright light, never make wet and never, ever feed after midnight.
So when young Peter accidentally breaks two of the three rules with cutie pie pre-Christmas present Gizmo, he unleashes an ugly copy of terrorizers known as Gremlins. As they are designed to do, the Gremlins wreak havoc upon Pete’s small town and have a particular interest in electronics and mechanical devices. Consider this movie the ultimate pet-ownership guide.
