Our series of 1984 retrospective episodes continue into our latest Christmas special with the 1984 Christmas classic, Gremlins, directed by Joe Dante and presented by Steven Spielberg. Through this episode we discuss the influence of Gremlins, the tightrope this film walks between horror and comedy, the absurdity of Phoebe Cates speech, and the film references throughout the movie. We also attempt to uncover whether the film references such as Snow White and Invasion of The Body Snatchers have any hidden meanings and if the Gremlins are an allegory for atheism.
