The Gremlins are back, and this time, they've taken control of a New York City media mogul's high-tech skyscraper.




Matthew (Age 14) - ★★★★

"Gremlins 2 is just as funny and even more creative than the first, with several unique

gremlins and an interesting spin on the gremlins nature, with them being trapped in a large

building in the daytime. That being said, they try too hard to make themselves independent

from the first film, souring the experience slightly."
