Summary: Where the original Gremlins was a horror film spiked with comedy, Gremlins 2: The New Batch is essentially a black comedy, with a couple of horrifying touches. As the film starts, the fantastical trinket shop in Chinatown, which sold the Mogwai in the first film, is demolished by a crazed multi-media businessman called Daniel Clamp (John Glover). The heroes from the first movie, Billy (Zach Galligan) and Kate (Phoebe Cates), happen to work for Clamp in his huge high-rise. They find the Mogwai within Clamp's building, but not before he has accidentally spawned legions of mischievous, lizard-like Gremlins. Soon, the Gremlins are wreaking havoc throughout the building. In the original film, their misdeeds were violent, but here they're also goofy and satirical. Director Joe Dante has filled the film with quick verbal and visual jokes, which, for many, makes Gremlins 2: The New Batch a satire and inversion of the typical horror film. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Matthew Doberman

Eschewing the typical progression of a horror movie series toward more and more gore, Gremlins 2: The New Batch was a refreshingly lighter sequel. The original's violence and mean-spiritedness are gone, making this follow-up somewhat more kid-friendly. Better yet, the film lays on the in-jokes, references, and humorous cameos to such a degree that New Batch becomes a send-up of the original, and of creatures-gone-awry horror films in general. Each sequence is tacked onto the next like a new room in a funhouse, exploiting an image or gag that relates only tangentially to the storyline; the mid-film all-Gremlin production number of New York, New York is particularly inspired. ~ Matthew Doberman, Rovi
