Christmas is tomorrow, and as you might imagine, people out in the world are talking a lot about Christmas movies right now. Frosty the Snowman, Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and It’s a Wonderful Life are all well and good, especially if you have kids, but there’s also definitely room for more grown up, bawdy fare, like Bad Santa and Christmas Vacation. Some of our favorite holiday viewing, however, is much less traditional. We consider Die Hard and Lethal Weapon to be Christmas movies, and you may recall the likes of Children of Men, Prometheus, and Brazil are all set during the season, though none of them exactly scream “Happy Holidays,” do they? One of our favorites in this realm is Joe Dante’s Gremlins, and fans are in for a badass holiday treat.
Star Zach Galligan plays Billy Peltzer, the kid who inadvertently unleashes a horrific plague of the titular monsters on his hometown, in Gremlins. Earlier this year, he stopped by the Movie Crypt podcast over at Geek Nation, and contributed to an awesome new commentary track to play along with the movie. Merry Christmas to us all.
