Episode 10 – Gremlins Special

In this Christmas Special episode, Charlie and George break all the rules as they navigate the crazy chaos of cult classics Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. There’s drinking, bad behaviour and swearing and that’s just the hosts! Their post midnight ramble covers everything from the Spielberg touch, the perils of using monkeys as a special effect, Hulk Hogan and double breasted dressing gowns.

Whether its the comedy-horror-satire of the first film or the highly acclaimed post-modern sequel, these are two films that have stood the test of time and are definitely worth a revisit.

Back in 1984, the Ghostbusters soundtrack was such a huge success that it purportedly generated an additional $20 million to the films overall takings and made Ray Parker Jr an overnight star.

What’s he been up to since?
