Popping into life from a script that was never meant to be made into a film, produced by Steven Spielberg and helmed by a rising horror director, Gremlins made a giant splash in the summer of 1984. Which is odd since it’s a Christmas movie.
Colin hosts this week as he feeds the regular crew, sans Jaime, after midnight. The unlikely origins of the film, it’s cast, and production challenges are all discussed as well as that crazy ‘why I don’t celebrate Christmas anymore’ monologue that creeps us all out.
As always, we close the show out with Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions. Heather joins us again and the gang struggles with a new topic: Actor. See if you can guess who it is before they do.
