104 of 366 – Gremlins (1984): Gizmo

But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget… …no matter how much he cries or how much he begs… …never, never feed him after midnight. Got it?

1984 was an excellent year for film and a pivotal one for me growing up. Gremlins was one of the films that shaped me during my formative years. It’s a surprisingly dark film with a lot more horror than some might remember.

But it’s an interesting modern day fable about the arrogance of people who think they can control the natural world. It’s fascinating to watch as an adult and years ago when we reviewed it for the Midnight Movie Club Dan and I had a great conversation about its many layers.

This is part of the 366 Characters from 366 Films project running throughout 2020. The original illustrations go on sale over on the Lee Draws Stuff store the same day (around 9:00 am Brisbane time) and are available until someone snaps it up.

Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal entries which include sneak peeks, behind the scenes and first looks then head over to Patreon and subscribe for as little as $1 (US) a month.
