A New ‘Gremlins’ Short Film Emerges for the Holidays

If kids thought the Grinch stealing Christmas was a nightmare, imagine a bunch of toys-gone-wrong coming to kill humanity as we know it. Well, just in time for the holiday season, directing talent Ryan Patrick is here to bring viewers a contemporary viewing of ’80s horror comedy Gremlins. Let’s just say this new, unofficial rendition of the classic may just make you reconsider getting that Mogwai on your loved one’s wish list (or any big-eyed, furry creature for that matter). Dubbed Gremlins: Recall, the 10-minute film is the perfect nightmare-providing short to keep you on your toes.

This Christmas edition of Gremlins starts off with a television advertisement selling the cure for Mogwai mutations. But what is a good film without a little plot twist? Despite this enticing $1999 USD solution, the Gremlins have not stopped their take-over. See what happens when an inquisitive waitress named Claire feeds one of the Mogawi’s a milkshake behind “wing” truck driver, Owen’s back. Press play in the vimeo link above and make sure you’re ready for a cute-turned-monstrous surprise!
