The rules are simple: Keep your Mogwai away from water, bright lights and, most importantly, never--never--feed him after midnight. Two survivors of the gremlins' havoc in Kingston Falls who have moved to New York City and now work for a global conglomerate are joined by their furry little Mogwai friend, Gizmo. But again, the rules are broken and the gremlins are loose--this time in Manhattan, and the Big Apple will never be the same.

Campy horror sequel has unrelenting cartoonish violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Gremlins 2: The New Batch is the 1990 sequel to the hit '80s movie. It's more entertaining than one might expect, but much of that entertainment comes from cartoonish violence in the form of gremlins spending the last hour of this 90-minute movie running amok in a Manhattan high rise similar to Trump Tower. While not as gory as other horror movies, some of the gremlin deaths -- for instance, a gremlin getting killed via a paper shredder -- might be a bit much for younger viewers. Some of the satire of 1980s-style greed will also go over younger viewers' heads, as well as references to Ted Turner's attempts at colorizing classic black and white films in the late 1980s. There's mild profanity and a few mild sexual references. A troubling aspect worth mentioning is the stereotypical portrayal of an Asian character who does nothing but speak in broken English while taking nonstop photographs with his camera.
