Gremlins is on the all-star team of those puppet-driven 80’s movies. It’s funny, scary weird and fun all at the same time. Joe Dante made the film for the paltry budget of just 11 million dollars. It went on to make over 150 million. It had no right to be as successful as it was that’s the beauty of a movie like this… When everything comes together just right you can hit it out of the park. I would have loved to have been in the meetings or focus groups for this movie, watching the suits try and make sense of what they were funding. 🙂 Here are the progress pics.
