"Dont expose him to bright light. Dont ever get him wet. And dont ever, ever feed him after midnight."

If those words fill you with a dark Christmas feel, then you're in luck my fellow macabre mate: Gremlins is screening in Smithfield's Lighthouse Cinema on Tuesday 19 December.

This comic Joe Dante effort is set in a small town at Christmastime, and is arguably the most underrated Christmas movie of all time (move over Die Hard.)

Seeking a unique gift for his son a well meaning dad purchases a cute, fuzzy little "Mogwai" from a Chinatown shop clerk who dispenses the above-mentioned warning before closing the deal. These and a variety of other plot strands are tied together when the lovable mogwai (named Gizmo) is exposed to bright light and gotten wet.

 In short order, the town is invaded by nasty, predatory Gremlins, who lay waste to everything in sight as main characters Billy and Kate try to contain the destruction...

How could this NOT fill you with festive cheer?

It's showing on Tuesday at 7pm and you can get tickets online here.
