On August 8, 2002 Warner's is releasing Gremlens 2: The New Batch . While not the best film in the world, CL's portrayel of Dr. Catheter will have you needing a doctor for your sore ribs.
Good news allthough that it is a comedy. The first Gremlins was very scary but this one is more comic. Love the intro to the film. Now who can forget the scene in the lab where he lears at Gizmo saying: "And for that my little friend we are going to have to do a little cutting". Thank god I haven't visited a doctor for a great while.
Joakim, my dear deluded boy, how can you say that Gremlins II isn't scary?
By God, but Mr. Lee's character name is enough to make me cringe in fear! Let me just say that few words in the English language cause me to react more negatively than 'catheter'. :eek: Erm...Thanks, but no thanks!

Thanks for the heads up, I'll be sure to be looking for it
Gremlins more comic for me than the first one. In the first one as far as I can remember there was quit a lot violence like the scene where one of the evil Gremlins throws circle saws on the main characters. I'm not saying I didn't like the first one. It was very convincing, and made me shudder. Gremlins 2 is more comic for me when you see the opening and during the film you suddenly see Hulk Hogan make an appearence while watching??Yes, Gremlins 2. It is a very funny film and yes scary. The doctor is just wonderful. So of course I shudder absolutly but I grin with evil when he is saying those lines I mentioned above. And not to forget the bat gremlin and the spider one. I had a sorth of friend in school when these films came out and he described the killing of the spider gremlin for me once. But that's just my opnion about those films which are both great in its own way. Mr Lee said he was impressed by the way they made the dolls roll there eyes and move. Lots of wires everywhere. Several guys contolling one gremlin.
the flying gremlin is real cool. I remember seeing CL in the previews and going oh yeah im seeing that one. It was around the time none of his new movies were hitting the theaters so it was like the first time i saw him on the silver screen since 1941
Oh, I thought Gremlins 2 was wonderful. More comedic, yes, but that was the point. It is a a great satire. Very underrated, imo.
The dvd is coming with a Joe Dante commentary, but nothing involving Mr. Lee, from what I''ve seen .
"Gremlins 2" was written as a satire, and should be taken only as such. It was Joe Dante's revenge, more or less, for the mess Steven Spielberg made of the original.
In addition...Midnight movies is releasing two Vincent Price and Christopher Lee films on one DVD. The Oblong BOX and Scream,Scream again are due out this fall at a cheap price. check the dvd-drive in for info
