GREMLINS 1 & 2 Coming To Blu-ray May 8th!

New postby TheSkeletonCrew » Sun May 06, 2012 9:52 pm

This Tuesday, May 8th, Gizmo and friends are hitting Blu-ray to bring your their antics into your home! I recently had the chance to revisit GREMLINS 1 & 2 on Blu-ray, and I can say that they are well worth the upgrade!


GREMLINS starts off when a down on his luck inventor, who is trying to sell one of his "unique" creations, discovers the perfect gift for his son, Billy, during a visit to an antique shop. He buys a small, furry creature called a Mogwai. When the rules outlining the Mogwai's care are broken, it's up to Billy and his new found friend to save his town overrun by monsters.

About The Blu-ray:

Warner's 1080p transfer is an exceptional upgrade from the 2004 DVD release. It was nice to see all of the DVD bonus features were ported over for this release. It's not reference quality, but it is good for what it is.

Bonus Material:

*Over 10 Minutes Of Additional Scenes
*Making Of Featurette
*2 Commentaries:
-Director Joe Dante, Phoebe Cates, Zach Galligan, Dick Miller, & Howie Mandel
-Director Joe Dante, Producer Michael Finnell, & Special Effects Artist Chris Walas
*Photo/Storyboard Gallery
*Theatrical Trailers



Billy & Kate move to the big city, and after they run into Gizmo when his owner dies, the fun starts again. After being exposed to water, due to a janitor's accident, a new breed of Gremlin is born and a New York high rise is taken over!

About The Blu-ray:

Gremlins 2's Blu-ray transfer looks slightly better than the original film. As with the first film all of the features from the Gremlins 2 DVD release have been ported over for this release. Here's what you get:

Bonus Material:

*Over 20 Minutes Of Footage Not Seen In Theaters
*Behind The Scenes Documentary
*Commentary By Director Joe Dante, Actor Zach Galligan, Writer Charlie Haas, & Producer Michael Finnell
*Alternate Home Video Sequence
*Theatrical Trailer

It was awesome to be able to go back and revisit these classic films! Fans old and new should appreciate the nostalgia of these films with their originality and unbelievable effects for the time period. These are films you'll want to visit again and again! Both are under $20, at that price picking them up is a no brainer!
