Struggling inventor Randall Peltzer visits a Chinatown shop looking for inspiration for a last minute Christmas present for his son Billy. He encounters a peculiar creature called a ‘mogwai’, which is reluctantly sold to him on three conditions: don’t expose it to sunlight, don’t get it wet, and never, ever feed it after midnight…

THEY SAY: “At the level of Serious Film Criticism, it’s a meditation on the myths in our movies: Christmas, families, monsters, retail stores, movies, boogeymen. At the level of Pop Movie-going, it’s a sophisticated, witty B movie, in which the monsters are devouring not only the defenseless town, but decades of defenseless clichés.” – Roger Ebert, 1984
WE SAY: A satirical spin on multiple genres, from ’50s B-movies to Christmas films, with frights and gags in equal measure. Be warned that some of the death scenes might be a little grisly for younger audience members!
This event is hosted in partnership with Hype Agency.
