But, before long, Gizmo, the orphaned Mogwai, falls prey to the evil scientist, Doctor Catheter, and once more, a splash of water spawns hordes of the mischievous Gremlins that immediately start doing what they do best: wreaking havoc. Is there an escape from the onslaught of the new batch?
Plot: Young sweethearts Billy and Kate move to the Big Apple, land jobs in a high-tech office park and soon reunite with the friendly and lovable Gizmo. But a series of accidents creates a whole new generation of Gremlins. The situation worsens when the devilish green creatures invade a top-secret laboratory and develop genetically altered powers, making them even harder to destroy!

A Gift of Love to Horror Fans… and Hulk Hogan
Years after the original outbreak, Gizmo and the gremlins return… and invade the Clamp building (a parody of Trump Tower). Luckily, Billy and Kate are on hand to stop them again, and Dick Miller is ready to fight them to the death. Now in many assorted varieties (thanks to a genetics lab), the threat is bigger… but the laughs are harder.
It’s not unusual for horror sequels to become more and more humorous as they go. “Child’s Play” slowly became a complete joke as the series went on. The same with “Leprechaun”. With “Gremlins”, it didn’t take long at all — Joe Dante not only mocks his first film but completely parodies it and turns it inside out. We are treated to an endless barrage of non sequitors, in-jokes, and homages to more than a few dozen movies. Most of the references are obscure (such as Dick Miller killing a gremlin in the same manner as his character Walter Paisley from “A Bucket of Blood”), but that’s what makes the film viewable again and again.
Those who loved the first may dislike the second, but those who disliked the first may like the second. That Dante is able to switch gears so smoothly is incredible. With the main characters remaining constant, it should bring appeal from one to the other. How often does a sequel keep the core cast and the director? And dudes, this was during Phoebe Cates’ adorably cute phase. Not the sexy seductress of “Fast Times”, but a dollface you can’t say no to.
I watched this one right after “Howling III” as I was beginning to sober up from drinking Passport Scotch. I switched to Clan MacGregor Scotch, but my belly was full so I didn’t drink nearly fast enough. But I think that’s quite alright, as “Gremlins II” is a timeless classic that should be enjoyed with a clear mind. (But if you want to drink, drink… it won’t make the film any worse.) Did I mention Christopher Lee is in here? He is. Why does he have a pod from “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”? Who knows! But his role as a scientist (not a mad one) is perfect for him, and a nice change from his Hammer horror roles as Dracula (though we still get a nice blood drinking reference). It might be one of the appearances by Lee I enjoy the most.
If you mixed the original “Gremlins” with “Muppets Take Manhattan” (or maybe “The Great Muppet Caper”), it would be almost like this. Well, maybe not. I don’t know. But if you get the chance to see “Gremlins II”, see it. You’ve probably already seen it, though, so why am I telling you to see it? You already know. For that one person who reads this that hasn’t seen it, you should. Both horror and non-horror fans will love it. Perfect date movie? Perhaps!
“Don’t miss Casablanca, now in full color with a happier ending.”
This movie rocks. Oh, I need to say more? Alright then: this movie rocks so hard that Gizmo has mo choice but to do his little bop-dance to it while the twin scientists bop their heads and Christopher Lee does his best glowering of his career (and this man could glower a statue into submission!)
This is Joe Dante and his collaborators going into a throw-all-the-kitchen-sinks-at-the-wall approach, and Gremlins 2: the New Batch is even more of a love letter to B movies and Loony Tunes than the first one; like the Evil Dead movies, the sequel finds its auteurs (lets not forget Spielberg too, and this time Rick Baker does fx work) not really wanting to make a sequel (the studio demanded a follow-up to the #4 box-office hit of 1984), but with final cut at his disposal, under Spielberg’s supervision, Dante does a delirious cartoon of a live-action movie. When the gremlins wreak havoc it gives havoc a whole other name. Only one scene, when the new ‘Stripe’ gremlin leaps out of the board in the control room, is actually scary, but no matter.
This is a movie to laugh your ass off to, and as a child you find yourself laughing at things but as an adult the jokes come harder, faster, and you get more of them. While Hulk Hogan may be a little dated, hearing a line like the Casablanca joke (making Clamp a lo of Trump and also a lot of Ted Turner), or the Brainy Gremlin voiced by Tony Randall make mention of Susan Sontag, or the references to the musical Dames and what exactly the movie is that the gremlins sneak into the theater that breaks the 4th wall of the whole movie itself (naked volleyball!) makes this a real treat and a half.
Hell, just the scene with the Canadian restaurant (with a chocolate Moose cake!) is a laugh riot, but there’s many more scenes where the comedy is with gag after gag after gag. And through all of this you got the return of some of the original cast, with Cates and Miller being most welcome, and John Glover giving a legitimately wonderful performance (comic, but with some humanity) in this time when a Trump mogul seemed… innocent by today’s standards.
Oh, and Gizmo turning into Rambo… I’m slayed.
